Who Likes Superior Warmth While Hunting?

Sitka Gear Fanatic with Primaloft 1

Have you ever been in a treestand and your body gets so cold that the tree starts you, the treestand and the entire treestand shaking?! I haven’t had this issue for several years now thanks to PrimaLoft and Sitka Gear.

I am fortunate enough to hunt all year long, even during the cold winter months of November through March. Needless to say, I put some serious hours on stand. This takes a different kind of toughness to endure this kind of cold 15+ feet in the air. What makes this hostile environment worse is trying to draw your bow back after sitting on stand and completely still for several hours. You muscles nearly lock up! If you add wind and or rain, this just increases most hunter’s chances of heading home to watch reruns of their favorite hunting shows on TV.

Some of you are thinking to yourselves, “Yep, that’s me!” So, how do I combat from shivering and nearly falling off stand? Sound the trumpets…the combination of Sitka Gear and PrimaLoft are the vital pieces for me! I have already used the Sitka Gear Fanatic pieces about a dozen sets on stand as I type this and the rut revving up. I have had myriad of weather conditions thus far with mornings in the mid-twenties, to windy, to light rain and heavy wet snow. [Read more…]

Nose Jammer Jams Their Noses

Those of you not familiar with Nose Jammer, it is “not” a cover scent! Neither is it an attractant. So, what in blue blazes is Nose Jammer, it’s an olfactory nerve overload system. Simply put, it stops the game from being able to smell with naturally occurring compounds (Vanillin). Vanillin is found naturally throughout the North American Woods so it won’t spook game.
