Renewable Scent Control

In order to get all the “necessary” gear, a new hunter can often feel like they may have to take out a loan just to afford it all. That idea didn’t appeal to me when trying to recruit new hunters. After doing some research, I found that there is a material that has two irreplaceable functions every hunter, new or experienced, desires and needs; scent control, which keeps stank out when you’re out and thermal regulation, that keeps you warm when it’s cold out and cool when it’s warm out. My Minus33 Merino Wool Clothing is my multi-function, Swiss-Army knife of apparel and I’ve got a hunting story to back that up.

REVIEW: Good Socks are a MUST!

For a long time, Minus33 has been my go-to for all types of clothing. From shirts to undergarments I have it all. But to me, the most important Minus33 garments are the socks.

Minnesota Bucks and Minus33

Preparation

The chilly night air consumed me as I prepped for opening morning, for the first time in 15 years there would be snow on the ground for Opening day of Minnesota Deer season. It is always an exciting time of year. Our traditional family cabin was packed with 6 of us. The anticipations made it hard to sleep. Hanging my gear the night before, I made sure I had all the appropriate Minus33 gear on hand. Starting with my inner layer of Lightweight next to skin, such as the Saratoga bottom and Ticonderoga top. These are followed by the Explorer Midweight Crew and the Adirondack Midweight Vest. Finally, the Thermerino jacket before my outer shell. Combined with the Expedition Wool Balaclava which keep me comfortable during the long days sit. These products keep me in the stand longer and warmer, so I can pursue such a great tradition in the Northwoods.

Merino Wool Base Layers for Elk Hunting and More

By:  | Sep 21, 2017 | HuntingWestern Exposure

Do you want good Base Layers for Elk Hunting and More?

Last fall I tested several merino wool base layers for Elk hunting.  I really liked a pair of Merino Wool long Johns I bought locally and looked the company up, it was called Minus 33.  I contacted them this spring and received some “skin garments” for my spring bear hunting and summer mountain work.  I wanted to test these items to try and resolve an age-old problem, that swampy feeling under your backpack and in your crotch.
