gear, rangefinder, hunting, Bozeman
Mike England
If you’re like the average hunter, you don’t shoot much past 300 yards with a rifle, or 30 with a bow. Which is great—you’re actually hunting, not just shooting. Read more >>
gear, hunting, pants, Bozeman
Chris McCarthy
It’s tough to find a single pair of pants for the entire hunting season: thin enough for those balmy early-October days, but thick enough for late-season snow. But Sitka’s versatile Mountain Pant fits the bill. Read more >>

If you’re searching a new hunting-season baselayer, look no further than the Sitka Core Midweight Zip-T. This zippered crew-neck, long-sleeved shirt is ideal for getting you through cold mornings and warm afternoons. Read more >>

While on the water, there’s no better way to safeguard your scattergun than with an AMS Amphibian Hunter gun case. This baby’s fully waterproof, with a super-tight, roll-top closure; it’s padded to protect against inadvertent impact; and it floats. Read more >>

Mystery Ranch is at it again with their newest gift to the expedition hunter, the Marshall. Read more >>
Leupold RX-1200i
England, Mike
For a compact rangefinder that reaches out past 1,000 yards and doesn't require two hours of prep time with the manual, check out the Leupold RX-1200i TBR/W. That's a lot of letters and numbers, for sure, but the name is as arcane as this product gets. Read more >>
Rapid Rifle Cover Bear-Spray Holster
England, Mike
A pissed-off griz can be on you in seconds, which makes your pepper spray pretty much worthless if not instantly deployed. Problem is, ease of access leads to ease of accident, as branches snag the bottle or it slips out when you drop your pack. Read more >>
Alpen Optics Teton 10x42
Acosta, Jeff
I recently had a chance to try out the Alpen Teton 10x42 ED HD (extra-low dispersion, high-definition) and I have to say, I’m extremely impressed with both the feel and function of these binoculars. Read more >>
Rapid Rifle Cover, Bozeman
McCarthy, Chris
The elk were above me, necessitating a three-mile climb through a new growth of thick, 15-foot-tall lodgepoles. The wind hadn’t blown since the last snowfall, so each tree was loaded with snow, just waiting to avalanche down my back, filling both my rifle barrel and scope. Read more >>

From long, hot afternoons in September to frigid December mornings, the Highland Thermal Mug can help take the edge off an otherwise unpleasant day afield. Read more >>
England, Mike
Wet feet are the worst, especially when you’re halfway up a mountain with miles of trail and hours of daylight ahead. Luckily, a good pair of gaiters can save a whole lot of suffering—and I’ve found no better calf-and-ankle covering than Kenetrek’s Hunting Gaiter. Read more >>
Stone Glacier Sky 5100 Review
England, Mike
Quivers may be all the rage these days, but a more minimalist approach has its advantages: less money shelled out, less space occupied in the closet, less time spent fixing gear. Which is why I like my new Sky 5100, made by Bozeman’s own Stone Glacier. Read more >>
hunting, Outside Bozeman, Montana
Mike England
With waterfowl, special-weapons, and crop-damage hunts, it’s easy to remain afield well after the last leaves of fall disappear beneath the snow. And knowing whose land you’re on is vital—which is where the HUNT Premium Map from onXmaps comes in. Read more >>
hunting vest, hunting gear, hunting pack
England, Mike
When hunting, I tend to eschew fancy, high-tech gear for things that feel more natural—but with the Classic Upland Hunting Vest from Eddie Bauer, I get the best of both worlds. Read more >>
Bow hunting, women, archery, Bozeman
Slepian, Maggie
 While the shrink-it-and-pink-it philosophy still exists with women’s bows, there are finally women-specific models that are just as badass as the men’s. I outgrew my beginner bow this year, and tested out the Spirit—the first women’s bow from Elite Archery. Read more >>
Mike England
Crisp mornings, bright and sunny afternoons, occasional rainshowers, cool nights with the blankets pulled tight – autumn has arrived. Read more >>
England, Mike
For bird hunters on a budget, the PetSafe Big Dog Remote Trainer is a great alternative to those fancy-schmancy collars that shock your bank account more than your insubordinate canine. Read more >>
Mike England
Bird hunters need both insulation and mobility, making a vest the ideal outerwear option. If you’re willing to spend a few bucks, there’s no better choice than Eddie Bauer’s old-school 1936 Skyliner Vest. Read more >>
McCarthy, Chris
It’s a common situation for hunters: you finally find the game you’re looking for, but you’re just not sure if you’re still on public land. Well, fret no more thanks to the Montana Landowners’ Names Topo overlay. Read more >>
