I'm taking my 16 year old nephew for a hunting trip. I think he could use some good woods time and time with an adult male role model
His quasi step dad was supposed to loan him some gear but pretty much dropped the ball and he left state.
This is a big kid I'm dealing with. He skinny as a rail but is probably 6'2 and wears a size 13 boot.
He basically needs hiking boots and clothes and rain gear. His mom says he has some camo stuff but who knows what that means. I suspect camo cotton stuff from Walmart.
I just retuned home and learned all this and we are leaving the 5th of September.
Can any one help with some decent clothes? I need everything from socks, long johns, and outerwear.
We will be hiking in. So stuff that can be layered would be ideal. Can't really have him running around on the tundra sweating to death wearing grundens.
He's really excited about this and I want to make it a good trip for him. Step 1 is making sure he isn't miserable.
I'm pretty broke at the moment otherwise I'd buy him the stuff. I'm in eagle river and am willing to drive to anchorage or the valley.
We can certainly return anything as well too. This doesn't need to be a permanent handout. Just get him outfitted for a week
