bibs or pants?
« on: December 26, 2011, 03:32:44 PM »
What do you guys/gals recommend getting for hunting pants?

I can't decide if I should go with the pants because they are cheaper or with the bibs because they sit higher up on the body and if your jacket rides up you won't get a draft.

I have some bass pro cards and have enough to order either one but just wanted to see what experiences hunters have to say.

This is my first set of camo and I have never hunted before but hope to do so in the coming year with my bow.

I can get the camo in mossy oak break up or realtree AP. I am thinking that he realtree AP is better over all colors and will blend in better with most of the areas around here.

Thanks in advance for all the info. that is provided.

with limited funds I would go with the bibs
I have lots of gear that I have purchased over the years and still like goin back to the bibs for the comfort and to keep the shirt tucked in to prevent drafts
Generally I would say go with the AP over the mossy oak but look at he terrain you are normally hunting and try to match it the best you can.Oh shit just go with the AP..lol

any more questions about gear just ask bud we are all here to help the new guy

Will do.

I had planned on taking a deer this past season with a bow but had that bad back injury that has shut me down from doing much for the last year or so. So I sold my bow because I wasn't sure when I would get to shoot again if ever. After I had my surgery I asked the doc about archery and he said it was fine after my 6 month recovery time was up and to just take it easy and make sure I am moving around properly without pain.

So I had an extra gas auger that I trade a guy for a mathews q2xl that is already set for the same draw length I need but I need to drop the weight from 70lbs down to 55lbs if possible.

I just seen this camo on sale and decided I could use it for hunting and fishing and have these bass pro cards that I can use to buy it. Although I do need arrows, a rest, and release also so I am not sure what I will use them for just yet.

Ok so I have kind of narrowed it down to 2 sets of gear.

Both come in realtree AP and both have bibs and a jacket.

Which one would you guys go with?

Winchester cold ridge

Or

Redhead Squaltex II bone dry?

NOT redhead!
I worked at bass pro and i have to urge you to go with something else.
its poorly made and we had so many returns with he redhead products.

my two cents would be to get bibs because i freeze in a tree stand, but i also like the pants because I hunt 95% on the ground spot and stalking.

Quote from Howard Hill.( Whenever he taught someone to shoot) "Son make up your mind right now if you want to target shoot or hunt as theres a world of differance between the two"

Hope this goes over well....

I agree with Adam on the bibs vs pants.  I do alot of walking when spot and stalking mule deer so always use my pnts for that.  When I am sitting in cold weather then I break out the bibs.  If you only have the cash for one set, I would go with the pants.  As for camo color, I believe lighter is better.  Realtree AP is not bad but I also like the greys and very fond of the Mossy oak treestand.

Good Luck.

Well I went to order the camo along with some wading boots for fly fishing but all 3 sets of camo I was comparing came up as available online but when I would check out they all said that they were discontinued or sold out.

So I guess I am without any camo for now. Hopefully I will be in a better financial situation in 2012 and can afford to order a set or 2 of camo for the hunting season.

Thanks for all the help. I will try to remember all the advise given when it comes time to order some stuff. 

Happy new years and I hope see tons of pictures or everyone hunting and fishing trophies in the coming year.
