Re: best pants for hunting?

I used to use the canvas duck pants all the time in my rabbit hunting days. Never really liked the ones that had nylon on them that got tore up quick. I don't even know what all is out there now. Wife got me a pair that was camo and insulated years ago. They are wrangler rugged ware. Don't even know if they still make them. Don't hunt the brush much anymore but walk the dogs all over the mountains and use them for deer and bear. Probably had them 11 years. My youngest was just a baby when we went to the outlets at Grove City. They are pretty tore up now and I am keeping my eye out for another pair. Them things have litterally hundreds of miles on them and they break the wind good. I walk hunt a lot and they are perfect for walking in the cold. They have nice deep pockets for shells and dog bones when you are training a young dog and the pockets warm your hands up pretty good. I still wear them and probably will till they fall apart or I get another pair. They have camo duck tape on the knees from getting tangled up in some barbed wire and the cuffs are frayed pretty good.

You cant get them if you aint in the woods!!

I wear carhart uninsulated bibs. They don't cost a fortune and with the double knees it takes some thick jaggers to get through them.

You can't get em from the couch.

Re: best pants for hunting?

Cabela's Boarhide field pants usually go on sale for $29.99 at the end of the season. The 1000 denier nylon front will turn away even multiflora rose and last a long time. The cotton canvas back is what usually wears out after a couple seasons of pounding.

Wranglers tough brush pants is what I wear. I also wear Columbia Partridge 2 coat which I love. Brush pants are okay but dans brush caps are better.

Not the cheapest, but not too outrageous either.


And a Merry Christmas to you too.

Me too. I have the green ones and they are great. No jaggers and you can get them for around $40
