Hunting For Thoughts on Hunting Apparel
My grandpa is the type of guy to genuinely show no interest in you, should you stray from his green way of living. John Deere green, that is.
I’ve yet to get caught up in the age old Deere vs. International or Ford vs. Chevy debates, frankly because I have no brand loyalty built up. Though I grew up on a farm, our tractor colors created a mixed race community. As for cars, I’m only qualified to enter conversations about Buicks, Oldsmobiles and Mercurys. Yeah, I’m an “old” 27.
It’s a similar my-life-is-a-collage story when it comes to hunting apparel. I mix Browning, Beretta and Boyt. Can’t forget about my good friend Bob Allen. Some days I’ll ride the Columbia. Gamehide? Check. And Filson just made the list when I picked up some new field chaps.
People definitely build perceptions and brand loyalties when it comes to these companies, too. Beretta’s been around for half a millennium, so ask any 300 year old and they’ll tell you Beretta’s how you do it. To some, Filson is viewed as elitist. To others, it’s the best. To me, I’ll have no problem throwing my new chaps on and feeling good about it because they are literally more valuable than the Kelley Blue Book price of my car.
Do you find yourself aligning with one particular line, or like me, do you mish mash it together?
