Why you need to shop EvoOutdoors

We have all been there: you want to order a piece of clothing online but it is out of stock.  You try a different color but that is out too.  There is nothing close to what you need so you just walk away.  Now imagine that what you need is for the upcoming hunting season and you really don't want to go to the local big-box store but you don't know what alternatives are out there.  This just happened to me.

However, I get my hunting clothes from EvoOutdoors.  Yes, I am partial and I am a part of their ProStaff team but I wanted to test Tracy out a little bit and see how the Camo Concierge works.

A few months ago, I ordered a hoodie with the idea that I would wear it over my FirstLite base layer.  Tracy emailed me earlier this week to say that the company was discontinuing the hoodie and would I like something else.
"Sure, what would you recommend?"
"Did you want it for the brand, fit or pattern?"
I described what I was looking for and Tracy came back with three different suggestions from three different companies. These were not just suggestions, Tracy actually wears one of the tops she was suggesting and could speak from experience on how well it held up.

We talked about fit (some are unisex sizes) and which patterns were better for the type of hunting I would be doing.  I ended up ordering a Valhalla 1/4 zip from Kryptek for bear season, turkey season and maybe a few warm days during deer season.

Tracy helped me order a critical piece of clothing that I didn't realize I was missing and needed.  This top is more functional and crucial to my actual hunting season than the hoodie I originally ordered.  I can not wait to get it and start using it.

As I build my wardrobe with clothing that will help keep me comfortable as I am in the woods hunting, I am so grateful to have found EvoOutdoors! If you have any questions or need clothing for an upcoming hunt, contact Tracy and Dave.  You will be so glad that you did.

Eagles on the trail

Reason number 3,657,935 why my Dad is the best: As we were snowmobiling, we approached a bog and three eagles with about 20 crows took off.  It could only mean one thing in my book - something was dead.  We circled back and walked around in the snow but the birds had left and we couldnt find anything that would resemble a meal.  A part of me thinks that we were in the wrong piece of land and should have been on the other side of the bog but in our snowmobile gear, we were not going to cover a lot of ground.  I was disappointed that we couldn't find what the birds were eating but I was able to get some good pictures of one of the mature eagles and the immature eagle that were flying around.

Where are the women?

This week, my interview with Steve at The Maine Outdoorsman went live. Steve said yesterday 200 people hit his site viewing over 500 pages. That is a lot of people reading about little ole me and hunting. Why? When I think of women who are in the general public's eye and hunt, I can think of 2 - Country singer Miranda Lambert and Sarah Palin. Why only two? Why is the female hunter such a fascinating thing? (I should probably note that I do not have cable so any and all female hunters on the hunting stations are lost to me. I'll keep it to the general public because that's what I am familiar with.) People/media were fascinated by the fact that they could get footage of Palin and her gun, shooting (and gutting) animals but I feel like the nostalgia would be lost if they had the same footage of McCain. Lambert and her hubby Blake Shelton tweet photos of their kills, and comment on what/where they are hunting. I only know this because I follow both. That's it.…

Wanted: Mr. Sportsman

A friend of mine sent me this link and asked what I thought about it.  I had seen it before and was honest when I told him how degrading I felt it was.  Not only was the title of the "Miss Maine Sportsman" application in pink* but the questions were incredibly insulting to those of us that are fighting to be taken seriously among our male counterparts.

Questions like, "Do you clean your own kills/catches?" would never be asked if it were Mr. Maine Sportsman.  It would be assumed that yes, of course men clean what they kill.  Why is that assumption not made of us outdoor women?  Another question, "Do cook [sic] what you catch/kill? If so, what’s your favorite recipe?" would never be asked of men.  

My friend asked me what sort of questions I would ask if it were a Mr. Maine Sportsman pageant.  I came up with a bunch of snarky questions (Do you bait your own hook?) but then I thought about the questions that could have the most impact on the men that would…
