I’ve refined my system for about 15 years but write this with only one caveat — don’t simply take my word for it. Yes, these are my personal choices, but the ideal setup for you may vary based on your body type, hunt conditions and preferences. Furthermore, the best system for an individual is only obtained through the trials of personally testing gear in backcountry environments.
With that disclaimer in mind, the gear in this list is what I’d typically bring for an extended mountain hunt and has covered me from summer through early fall. With a few substitutions (warmer headwear, gloves and insulation layers) I’ve comfortably used these pieces in some of the coldest conditions in North America.
Gear designed for maximum concealment, breathability and durability in forested and vegetated environments where close engagement makes any noticeable movement or sound a dead giveaway.Shop All

Our friend Hank Shaw of Hunter Angler Gardener Cook shares this great recipe for turkey cutlets with morels from his wild game cookbook, “Pheasant, Quail, Cottontail.”
