Of course we always hear about how good the hunting was in the old days (or back in the day for the younger guys). How about the gear? I love looking at hunting pictures from the 50s, 60s and even 70s. Makes you wonder how guys were able to hunt sheep in blue jeans and flannel (or maybe wool) shirts.
So for you guys that were hunting in those days, what did you use for gear, clothing, and equipment when hunting sheep in Alaska? I'm curious about optics, rifles, tents, cook stoves, clothing, etc. How does it compare to today?
