Not very exciting but I need to update my base layers and buy a new pair of Muck Woody Max boots before next season. I’m at the age that if I wanted it, I most likely have it. I have been blessed.

One of the best systems i have found for the price is the cabelas brand ECWCS light to heavy weight layering systems. Bought them two years ago and wouldnt use anything else.

i would like to get a new suspension to try on my Kifaru pack, not needed but want to try something possibly better. looking to upgrade my laser also. will definitely be watching for some reloading products as they surface. looking for a better solar panel and battery setup? goal zero and poseidon is what i have currently.

What state, and for how long. I have realized that can make a big difference in what i pack. Like my elk hunt in colorado last year in November. Packed for super cold, which i was wrong to do so. I spent everyday in the one Tshirt i brought. The morning and evening only required a hoodie for the 5 day hunt. However, that monday had a storm rolling in where that cold weather clothing would have been needed. I assumed it would just be cold the whole time and i was wrong. Always be prepared though for those late season hunts.

Whats everyones must haves or dream gear for 2021.
Man, I'm really looking forward to getting into a Seek Outside Courthouse with a stove this year. The lady and I are gonna do some horsepacking and base camping at the car, so we wanted a bigger tent to do both.
