If you're ready to hit early deer season hard, then you're going to need the right apparel.
Most of us have plenty of camo, but odds are the majority of it is for cold weather. Jackets and fleece are for when most of the hunting seasons we participate in take place, and we know a cold winter sit is always a little more tolerable with the right jacket and base layers.
But it's equally as important for the portion of hunters who are able to take advantage of early season hunting, when the temperatures are higher and the sun is still shining. In fact, places like Texas, with their September 1 dove hunting opener, often have triple-digit days during the season. When quality camo is still a requirement but the heat hasn't let up, early season hunting gear is critical.
If you want to be comfortable while taking advantage of hunting season's big kickoff, then these Field & Stream apparel picks are just what you need.
Check out the Quarter Zip Tech Tee for a long sleeved option that covers your whole upper body in camo (either Realtree Max-1 or EDGE), while still keeping you cool. We really appreciate the athletic drop tail for extra coverage and flatlock seaming; they make for a really comfortable shirt.
The Performance Camo T-Shirt uses SmartWick™ technology to absorb sweat from your skin, and antimicrobial fabric to halt bacterial and fungal growth. That means less potential to smell even if it's hot and you're starting to perspire.
The Field & Stream Every Hunt Lightweight Cargo Pants contain NoScent™ C3 Scent Control Technology, keeping you odor-free while you're tracking and actively hunting game.
These Lightweight Core Hunting Gloves feature Touch Text Technology to allow you to use your cell phone or operate a trail cam touchscreen, plus they have a silicone gripper print on the palms. The best part? They're extremely lightweight and stretchy, meaning you won't have to worry about sweaty hands even if it's hot out.
A good pair of hunting boots makes a big difference. You've heard that one before. But an uninsulated pair for early season hunting is really the only choice you can make. Your feet and your stamina aren't going to last if they're too hot. These Woodsman Field Boots are waterproof and wrapped in Realtree Xtra camo, but they won't weigh you down with insulation.
