In the very recent past, I have heard alot of authorities talking about the number of youth that are not taking up hunting sports in general but more specifically waterfowl. After the last two days of searching, I can understand why. You all know that my 10 year old son is my #1 hunting partner. He eats this stuff up. He passed his HS last month and is having a hard time sleeping at night anticipating this Saturday. Says its like having free tickets to Disneyland. We spent all day yesterday looking for gear to make him just as comfortable as I am in the marsh on them cold winter days. We went to Cabela's on Sunday and I went to Sportsmans today (both locations). I have searched online at Macks, Bass Pro and a couple of other ones. I have budgeted $900 for two coats and two pairs of waders (he thinks we should match). We are looking for 4 in 1 parkas and Neoprene waders. He likes the MO Duck Blind pattern and so do I. I can find my boot size in that pattern and they run $219. My coat would cost $200. These prices are okay with me, Im not growing anymore (well okay, around the waist). But I have not been able to find anything for him in this pattern for any price unless I want to spend $299 for a coat that he will out grow by next season. Waders fit his feet at size 7 but drown his body (guess everyone with size 7 boots weigh 600 lbs). Decided to go with a womens 9 petite (fits good but no pattern other than Max 4). I can find all sorts of stuff in MO Break Up. Any ideas????? Wonder why kids dont take up duck hunting? WE DONT HUNT DUCKS IN FLOODED OAK BRUSH and without good cold weather attire, they just get miserable during the best times of the year. Have great selections for adults but NOBODY carries youth sizes and they dont seem to receptive when you say things like, "I guess thats why kids arent hunting anymore."
