Welcome to the Rich Outdoors podcast. This week we wanted to feature some of the gear we are excited about, testing, and just how we think about what to bring from hunt to hunt. What better than the guy who tests gear constantly for the goHUNT.com Gear Shop Trail Kreitzer. Trail and I have pretty similar opinions on gear but there are definitely differences.
This is a great conversation around what things to spend money on and maybe what things could wait until next year. I tend to be more minimalist and embark the theory that if I probably won’t die without it, it doesn’t get put in the pack. We also spend some time walking through how we each prioritize what new gear to spend money on each year. Hopefully you get some ideas for last minute things in this episode. I will say the goHUNT.com gear shop has an amazing selection of western hunting gear if you are in need of some items. There are some things I buy from goHUNT and some things I just order on Amazon, and I think both are great places to look for gear.
