My Gear

I am an avid believer in you get what you pay for. For that specific reason, I have chosen all of my gear with a purpose and reason. The adage goes, “buy once, cry once.”  That said, here is a list of the gear I use when hunting.  Hopefully, you can find some comfort in knowing that I have field-tested all of it for you already.  If you have any questions whatsoever, feel free to contact me!
