Getting geared up for a tough Salmon River Idaho sheep hunt and have been reading about gear and posting questions on here to learn all I can. I have horse hunted on most of my back country hunts and the stock is not an option on this one. I have read that cotton is not a good material to choose when it comes to hiking and backpacking in. All of my archery camo is cotton and I have always worn cotton boxers. I know I am in for a real challenge due to my age and the task ahead of me. I would like to hear what kind of pants might be better suited for this hunt which will more than likely be a hot one at the end of August and cool down into October.
