    Figured I'd start this now for questions and whatnot now, and commentary throughout.

    Not going to lie, the past two seasons have been crap I've taken two deer, haven't seen any good bucks in the stand. I took a good doe last year, and another huge doe the year prior...well until I got close and found out it was a buck that already lost its antlers. There were days where it was still so dan hot out that I didn't want to even want to "deal" with processing a deer.
    I was pretty burned out and just dumped all my gear in the garage, where it still is getting stinky. So, I need to get some new stuff. Who wants to go shopping!!! All I am really planning on buying is a really good cold weather set up and some new boots. Rubber boots are not cutting it for me, my feet get way too cold in rubber boots.
    Most likely going to buy this, I hate being cold and need something easier to pack other than bibs/jacket combo: https://www.cabelas.com/product/clo...treme-insulated-coveralls/753783.uts?slotId=0
