What does everyone wear?

White, Dark camo what? I don't have any white clothing and am wanting to get out this year for the first time. I have a .222 that I have all sighted in and ready to go and have bought several calls.

I wear all my layers with my bibs and coat for regular hunting. Over that, i wear cover pants and coat (not insulated)white camo. Purchase anything that will blend in with the cover you are hunting.

I wear layers of camo clothing and on the outer shell I wear a white coverup suit white facemask and hat. Don't be afraid to hunt with what you have for gear(camo) you will still be able to get action just try and use something for a backdrop like a tree,bush,clump of grass etc.

I dress as warm and possible with layers and such and then I lay under a White Bed sheet I pile some snow over get comfortable and wait to see what happens. I think it keeps some heat it with the snow on top! Good luck! (Bring hand warmers)

I wear my camo cold gear and then put on the white camo from cabelas. with the tree branches on it. I started out with the white camo poncho from fleet farm, I think it was military surplus. I still have it and use it on my legs since I don't have the camo bottoms yet.........I was reading a really interesting article in Predator Masters that talked about how coyotes see color. I have saved it and will re-read it a few more times and report that back here. It was very interesting. The biggest things is to breakup your outline. They can see greens, but lots of their colors fade to tans

i have camo bibs that turn inside out and are white. And i bought a white jacket from scheels along with a white facemask and gloves. Thats what i wear if there is just snow when i'm going to be sitting. Otherwise if theres some black dirt showing ill wear my white jacket with black carhart bibs to blend in a little better. I always wear a white jacket since thats the most part of my body that is going to be moving and the white jacket blends in really good with the snow and is hard to detect movement. I normally am set up in a wide open field situation. When i do set up near or by cover i wear white bibs and camo jacket to blend in with the surroundings.

go buy a white painters suit from fleet farm ... one piece full body camo only spend seven bucks... grab a can of black spray paint and an extra suit then spraypaint sticks on one and leave one all white then you have your choice! works awesome

How long does it take for paint smell to go away? Also i tried using those one piece suits but they always ripped all over from putting on and off. (yours might be a different fabric though)

i've tried those suits also and mine have always ripped. I spent maybe 70 bucks total for white bibs and jacket. The jacket is thinner with a wind breaker type style inside with breathable mesh. Just got a big enough size to throw some layers on underneath and i'm good to go

i have a go-to layering system i wear when predator hunting so i can shed layers if were doing a spot and stalk or post/drive style hunt. as far as snow camo, im a HUGE fan of the Natgear snow camo. that stuff flat out rocks in open country and in the woods. ive got some of the northwoods snow camo too but it has a blueish hue to it so i usually just bring it along incase somebody else forgets theirs.

I am poor well maybe cheap and this has worked well for me. My gun if fully black thou. I have been thinking about painting the stock and maybe stripping the barrel with tape?

    •  I use a Digger mount on my ATV and sled.  Its fast and easy.   I'm on the ice everyday testing and tweaking Nils blades. I rack the auger on every blade change and some days that could be 20 times so for the me the Digger is exactly what I need.  The clamp on the Digger makes fast work of securing the auger and removal.   The height of the Digger frees room on the rack for more gear.      Once in a while we'll take my buddies ATV out fishing.  Hes got no auger rack so we'll bungie the auger to the ATV rack. It works but it makes me appreciate the Digger rack all the more.   Any rack would be an improvement there.   In the past guys have posted their homemade racks and I hope they do so again.   
    • Currently have a couple empires. Most likely toss one of them in. If I go with a furnace I'll use a small plug in step down transformer 120v AC to 12DC. They are cheap as hell basically an oversized cellphone charger.
    •   You realize the only ones taking Calexit with any seriousness are conservatives. Which means conservatives are the ones falling for the Russian propaganda. Liberals say it sarcastically because conservatives think the country would be better off without the "coastal liberal elites" (even though California pays in $405 billion in federal taxes and receives only $344 billion in federal spending, meaning the rest of the country would be $61 billion poorer without California).
    •   As in the one that lets me use his cabin for Turkey and Deer hunting!
    • So Bear, please describe what your policy on those drugs now banned would be, in as much detail as you can.     I am really wondering what the alternative envisioned by the "stop the war on drugs" folks is.      
    •   Bear, I explained why we are stuck with the two party system.   If you don't like the two we have, you need to "pull a trump" and take over one of them.     Good Luck. 
    • Actually only one species of bumblebee so far.     I have no idea how one distinguishes the species of bumblebees.   
    • If this is your carb # 6 is the drain screw   http://www.marineengine.com/parts/yamaha-outboard-parts/1997/30/30ELHV/620301630004
    • I would suggest using non-oxy gas also!
    • I highly doubt it needs carb kits if only sat that long. Draining the carb bowls and spraying carb cleaner in there can clean things up a lot and loosen sticky floats. Should be a main jet on each carb you can pull to drain carb bowls and spray into and clean jet. Put in fresh gas with seafoam in it and new plugs and it will probably run. Impeller is a pretty easy job to. Should be able to find a video on u tube on how to do it. I would drain my carb bowls on my old 115 2 stroke every spring and you would be surprised at the slimy stuff that came out of them sometimes and that was just sitting over winter.
