Hunting…In the Buff!!

Ha Ha… got you to click – but this is without a doubt, my favorite accessory in my camo wardrobe!  The Original Multifunctional Headwear  has so much going for it.  Where do I start?  Well, I love it in the warm months to ward off mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, and most other bugs with its odorless  repellent. With the recent storm, mosquitos are terrible this hunting season.  I wore my Buff this past weekend and I had no bites.  Did not see any deer, but I was comfortable and had a great time! It protects your neck, face, or head depending on how you want to use it. With over 12 different ways to wear it, the usefulness in outdoor adventures is endless. From a do rag to a hair band, it serves me well year round.   I love the fact that it is odorless, comfortable and the insect repellent lasts over 70 washes.  In cold weather it is my number one necessity to stay warm.   Not doubt you could call it function with a little bit of fashion!  Must have!!!

…AND THAT’S WHY THEY CALL IT HUNTING.

…AND THAT’S WHY THEY CALL IT HUNTING.

Just back from an incredible deer hunting weekend in St. George, SC. Although I missed a shot near dark, the entire experience was memorable. I absolutely love the pristine forest, the twinkling stars of the pre-dawn skies and the unimaginable stillness you feel while in your stand. The piercing howls of the owls makes you realize how beautiful nature is and the privilege you have being a part of that. The weather was amazing as well as the fun stories shared by the hunters, the wonderful food and the hospitality from the whole staff at Deerfield Plantation. My favorite lunch was fried red brim, homemade french fries and rice with red gravy along with a side of frog legs.  It is also great when you  book the weekends where you see hunters you met at last year’s hunt and get to catch up on their lives.  Spending a weekend hunting with your husband is the best!  We love staying in “our little cabin” with all the comforts of home.  So happy that we are going back again in a couple of weeks!  … I can’t wait for my next adventure ….and that’s why they call it hunting!

Essential Gear:  Binoculars!

Essential Gear: Binoculars!

One of my husband’s good hunting buddy and friend, Phillip gave me this very sound advice, “Don’t use your scope to locate and identify game.   Invest in a really great pair of binoculars.  I took his advice and I bought a great pair –  Leupold at Bass Pro .   I never understood this until I bought mine.  Now it is a must. I even invested in a BinoHub which allows you to carry your binoculars for quick and easy access. When hunting you need to be able to distinguish between an animal you would consider taking and one you shouldn’t.  Here are some examples: Many outfitters will fine you if you shoot a button buck which is easy to mistake for a doe.  Since a doe is small, sometimes they are very hard to distinguish from a young buck. Button bucks are just beginning to grow their antlers and have small knobs at their skull. Button bucks have a very triangular face. Also, they are not real experienced so they will be playful and unafraid of noise and movement. Does on the other hand are very cautious and will stop frequently to make sure their surroundings are safe unlike the button buck who acts like they don’t have a care in the world. Also, many times outfitters will restrict the number of points on the buck’s rack as well as a minimum spread between the antlers.   This can get real tricky if you don’t have a great pair of binoculars. For me, I have a problem with night vision.  The binoculars give me an edge  to be able to see that early deer at dawn  or that last shot of the day at dusk.  I love my binoculars!     Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Like this:Like...
