How many use the camo suit for hunting? Is it quiet enough for bow hunting? Are there any stores in the Twin Cities that carry it.Thanks for any and all tips or comments!

Yes, it is quiet enough for bow hunting. The camo suits has a soft brushed finished, not a hard, scratchy noisy finish.

I have it in my showroom in Waconia. Long haul to Waconia from Forest Lake though.

I put it to good use bowhunting, and wished I would have worn it this morning in the duck blind. That wind was strong and we got a little rain. Great material that is useful in a variety of settings. Mark my words it will have a chance to perform in the duck blind this year at some point, as well as more days on the stand and an entire winter of ice fishing.

You'll be happy with it. Give it a look over if you ever get west of the Cities by Waconia at the Pro Fishing Supply showroom or if you get down to Mankato, Reel Fishing Outfitters in Madison Lake carries it.

Good luck.

Hey PerchJerker, where are you at in Waconia? I'm in Cologne and might want to take a look at some Artic Armor.

Do you wear this over your regular clothes now for hunting?? In winter do you just add thermal underwear for the super cold days?? Curious, read so much about it think it would make good gift

yes, and yes

sometimes the thermal underwear is not needed in the winter, but I usually throw them on.

I've put my suit to good use in the year that I've owned it.

Whats the differance between the camo and the green plus suit.

The Plus suit has a "fleece" lining and is not camoflauge.

Thanks T.O. I think I'm going to have to try them on, for some reason my clothing seems to be shrinking over the years and I cant figure out why. grin

We will have them at the St. Paul ice fishing show. We will have the Camo, Red/Black, Plus in Green and Black and the Plus in Green and Gold.

We will have them in sizes from XS - XXXL. They will be available to try on for size and for purchase.

We also have them in our store now(Plus is on the way).

    • Chocolate peanut butter stout is back on tap at the Boathouse in Ely.    A little thinner than last year but still a treat!
    • Surface water temps in Ely are 69-71 on the lakes we visited.  I think that’s a really fast warm up though and the actual spawning depth temps are lower.  I haven’t seen any bass bedding activity and the 18-19 inch smallies I’ve been catching are all fat and egg laden.     They’re sitting deeper than usual this time of year too.  The walleyes are are still shallow.
    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
