    All layers are wool. Most second hand. If it ain't wool, it's a gimmick.

    I shoot cabelas hunter arrows. $60/dozen. I shoot fixed blades that I resharpeb on a grinder.

    Whisker biscuit.

    Rubber boots with a wool removable liner. $35 new at gander. Cold feet? Put on an hat.

    1980's ruger .308 and a s&w .357 1970's. Both second hand. Will probably take off the scope next season and go with aperture only.

    I butcher and I eat all parts of the animal. Brain, eyeballs, tongue, heat, liver, kidneys, balls. I tan the hide at home and give as gifts to family. Keep the skulls/antlers. I regret my mounts. Who am I trying to impress?

    I missed the 4 first bucks I shot at with arrow. You learn from experience. Yes some knowledge from others, but 1 day in the woods beats many days of reading Internet forums. have to follow your gut, don't listen to the guys doing it 30 years.

    I'm 32 and live in an apartment in Brooklyn, NY

    Wool is good but to deny that there are synthetic fibers that are superior is like thinking the world is flat.

    Brooklyn NY is a target rich environment for sure. Good luck.

    Brooklyn Booners and Manhattan Monsters, you see a lot of those. I was warm this morning in my Sitka gear, sure, I could have worn some Walmart overalls but you can't draw a bow in those comfortably.
