Gander Mountain TecH2O jacket and bibs. Have had it for several years and love it. It is not extremely lightweight, but is 100% waterproof and breathable.

I like the lite weight Frogg Toggs and if it gets heavy then Gander Mountain TecH2O jacket is nice. I usually just use the Frogg Togg pants as I am to short to find a pair of bibs that fit and don't look like a baby's sleeper on me grin.gif

The Frogg Togg's are great. Lightweight, and they breath very well! And you really can't beat the price.

My vote goes for the Cabelas Gore-Tex. 100% waterproff, windproof and breathable. They are a bit spendy ($400) but they will last a lifetime. Get them slightly bigger than you want and they will double for winter outerwear as well.

I own the Cabela's goretex also. Problem is when it's over 70 degree's the frog togg's are more comfortable. I do love Goretex, but more in spring/fall. Just my experience.

I just bought the Gander Mountain Tech20 rain gear. I fished this past weekend on Devils Lake in 35MPH wind and rain/snow. I stayed dry and warm. It seems to be a bit heavy, but I like it none the less. Also, Gander is giving a $20 gift card for every $100 you spend on "Guide Series" apparel. So I bought a shirt and got $40 bucks in gift cards.

Guide Series TechH2O is my recomendation. If you watch there ads they sometimes go on sale and get them at a great price. Here is what I use mine for.

-fishing (soft water)

-hunting

-ice fishing

-snowmobiling, yes snowmobiling.

-and a good wind block!!!

Just an all around great investment PERIOD!!! There in the boat more then the fishing net.

Good luck,

mr

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
