I got an opportunity to test KUIU's new camo clothing line last weekend during a backcountry shed hunting trip.

Last weekend was supposed to be my first shed hunting trip of the year … it was a little early, but we can usually find at least 1 or 2 elk sheds at this time. The big bonus for the weekend was that I got the chance to put the 2011 KUIU line of camouflage to the test!
There has been quite a stir about the KUIU line and how it would perform in it’s debut year. I was very excited to see what kind of abuse it could take.
It was a good thing that people were waiting on me to try this stuff out, because otherwise I might have cut the trip short. When we arrived at my shed hunting spot, conditions were less than favorable. I saw several elk on the drive up with antlers still attached to their heads, the temperatures were in the low 30’s during the day and scratching single digits at night. If you add in the constant 25-30 mph winds and the 3-foot snow drifts around every corner … well, I probably would have turned around and headed to Nebraska to kill some turkeys.
But I had a great friend with me, great gear to keep us warm and the slight hope of finding a shed or two.
As you can see in the picture, I did a lot of digging!
