blind/boat gear question.

Postby RyanOvertime » Sat Aug 10, 2013 5:52 pm

Looks like I will have to privilege of hunting out of some blinds and boats this up coming season. My question is, What do you guys wear? I have waders and a good 4-1 but if I'm not stomping through the refuge I would like to not wear my waders. I was looking at the EST Drake 6 pocket water proof pants, And just wearing my Danner work boots.

If there's no possibility of getting in the water at all, and that setup is warm enough for you, I'd say go with it. I would personally rather have a good pair of bibs myself. Sometimes that cold air will sneak up under the back of your shirt and send chills up your spine.

you're probably gonna get wet bub..

I'd say your 4-1 parka, NICE waterproof bibs and some muck boots. I had those EST pants for 2 days before I took them back.

Stick with the waders. Or at a bare minimum hip boots. You just never know what can happen that you will need out of that boat. I had a buddy swamp out my boat going down a boat lane once, shallow water but instantly soaked, about froze to death. Decoys often need adjusting or a mojo needs turned off, running down cripples, saw a snake crawl in a boat once. Its too cold out there to chance it
