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.

Thanks PJ. I was in hopes there was a dealer closer too! I very much would like to see it in person before just ordering online.

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.

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).

    • It would probably be more accurate for you to say you simply choose not to believe it will be a problem.   What happens to your theory if interest rates rise to 5%?  
    • All depends on the district and how many years you have been a teacher.  Although MN is looking for teacher all over.. Our current district decided on keeping befits really high and seeing an increase in pay. Where my mother in-law (down in the cities) they have great benefits but there wages haven't not increased as significantly..    Although my wife is looking to open a daycare up so we knows if she will be teaching after all? 
    • You'll be fine with the door in the V.  I heard at one point that the Lake of the Woods edition was Ice Castle's most popular layout.  I know I see tons of them, but you will have to take some precautions.  I use a Towtector on my truck, which keeps the majority of the slush down.  A piece of tape or a tennis ball over the door knob is also done frequently.  Other than that, you'll have icing and freezing of your door, regardless of where you put it.  Just the nature of the doors we use.       
    • That does happen a lot and it sucks having to play those games.  I took my contract job knowing I was going to keep looking for full time work so it was really just a stop gap to get pay checks coming in and also to gain some experience in a new area and with a different company.  I think i was there less than 2 months total including the 2 week notice I gave after accepting my full time job.  Often times its easier getting a job when you're already working somewhere as you are viewed as more employable.  If you're not working then employers start to wonder why. That where a short term contract job can pay off.
    • I'm lucky enough to have the choice when I start my day, usually head in before traffic gets bad(6:30), but today I woke up and was like..........I'll wait until after rush hour(let that carp melt). We have a guy that starts at 4:30 am, and others that roll in at 10:00 am.   35W-494-Hwy100 on the way in, but I avoid 494 like the plague in the afternoon and cut through Bloomington. Adds a few minutes time that way, but it's always the same amount of time,  I hate hate hate the accordion traffic of 494. Jump on 35W right before the MN river and I have my own lane, no merging needed.   Curious to see how shutting down Hwy 169 is gonna affect things. Might roll in even earlier if need be.   Started working from home on Friday's two weeks ago, it's nice but I don't know if I would ever enjoy working from home full time. Stir crazy and lack of interaction with other folks.   Living on the south side of the metro stinks for taking trips up north. But we live with fewer meth mullets around.   We picked where we wanted to live first and then adjusted how far we were willing to travel for a job.        
    • Ya a saw that, sounds like they have played an easy schedule but you still have to pretty good to have that kind of record.
    • One could also say Koivu has been reborn, that line has been on a tear lately. I think all of them are at or near a point per game for the last 22 games. Not to mention they are doing that while usually getting the job of shutting down the other teams top line. Crazyness!
    • most people are pretty good in the shanty towns that I frequent.  the thing that pisses me off is the guys that come out with there 50 grand fish house and there 5 dollar generator.  instead of leaving it in the back of the truck where it wont bother anyone they drag it 50ft front there house set it next to me and let it buck very annoying.
    • Maybe you can help me understand something.  He mentions his wife is a teacher.  From what I have been told and through reading doc's through the MN Dept of Education, teachers generally get paid the same.  I understand there is a little "bump" for working in the cities, but doesn't the State Teachers Union dictate what teachers make to some extent?  My daughter wants to get into teaching and I was just curious.  I highly doubt a English teacher in Shakopee makes $15,000 more than a teacher in Detroit Lakes when comparing degrees and experience.  Hopefully MJ can offer some insight as well. Thanks!
    • We had kids.   Well it's not really that bad though...
