  2. BuckedUp Jr. lounge pants – They’ll be the most comfy item in her closet.

  4. BuckedUp girly tank or tee – Spring will be here before you know it, and she’ll be fashionably ready.
  5. BuckedUp swirly hat or visor - To go with her girly tank or tee. After all, accessories make the outfit.
  6. BuckedUp Hot Shorts – Ok, admit it. This is a gift that’s a little more for you than for her. But she’ll be flattered. We think.
  7. BuckedUp 2010 Calendar – When you hand her this calendar full of hot picks of the beautiful BuckedUp girls and tell her, “Baby, these gals got NUTHIN’ on you,” she’ll be so moved with emotion that you can bet the Christmas night romance is ON. Maybe.
  8. Chuckit Bucket – Because seriously, she needs someplace to coral all your junk you leave lying around the house.

How to Keep your Hunting Clothes, Gear and Yourself Scent-Free

If you can see him, you can bet that he can smell you. BuckedUpApparel.com offers tips on scent-free hunting.

You don’t even have to break a sweat. Just show up and you already smell. Every moment of the day your body is spinning millions of scent molecules into the surrounding air. It’s on your hunting clothes and boots that you wear and on all the hunting gear that you carry. And don’t think for minute that whitetail buck you’ve got your eye on can’t detect it – his greatest sense is his sense of smell. Lucky for you, BuckedUp Apparel has a few helpful hints to keep your hunting clothes and gear, and yourself off your target’s scent radar:

  • Before your hunt, shower with unscented antibacterial soap and shampoo, dry off with towels washed in an odor-killing detergent and use an odor-neutralizing deodorant;
  • Brush your teeth with baking soda and avoid eating, smoking and chewing tobacco after a brush;
  • Wash ALL of your hunting clothes, right down to your skivvies, with odor-killing detergent and hang them to dry on a line outside (your dryer may hold scents from previously washed clothes and scented drying cloths);
  • Store and carry your clothes in scent-free bags;
  • Oil rifles with brands that provide a masking scent;
  • Wash bows, arrows and broadheads with hydrogen peroxide;
  • Wash all of your hunting gear including your backpack, harness, stand, grunt tube, knives, etc. with fragrance-free detergents before each hunt;
  • Wash boots and overboots with odor-killing detergent and don’t wear them until you reach your hunting ground to avoid picking up odors from your vehicle, gas station and that favorite breakfast joint you hit along the way;
  • If you wear leather boots, line them with a scent lock and spray with a masking scent and odor neutralizer;
  • To really mask your boots’ scent, grind them in fresh deer droppings spotted while walking your hunting ground;
  • Use your rifle or bow to push aside vegetation and use activated carbon gloves to climb up to your tree stand. Touching leaves, bark and tree stand steps can leave your scent for deer to discover hours after you’ve passed by;
  • Use all of your hunting clothes, gear and equipment exclusively for the woods and store them in a sealed, scent-free container.

For the hottest hunting clothes and hunting gear around, shop BuckedUpApparel.com. And be sure to check our Upcoming Events section to see where BuckedUp and the BuckedUp Girls will be next. We regularly travel to hunting, mudding, 4-wheeling, trucking, festival and concert events to show off all the latest new BuckedUp products.

Prepare For the Hunt with Great Looking Hunting Clothes and a Ready Hunting Dog

Hunters across the country are gearing up for bird hunting seasons and BuckedUp Apparel is outfitting them with great looking hunting clothes for men, women and youth. But too often, hunters forget to fully prepare their hunting partners – the four-legged ones, that is.

“It’s very foolish to take a dog off the couch and go hunting,” Dogfolk Enterprises owner and author Pat Hastings recently told a reporter with the Oregonian. Hastings is a sought-after canine expert who travels the country to evaluate litters of puppies, informing owners as to the best lifestyles for a pup based on its body structure.  Hastings offers these tips to make sure your dog is ready for the hunt.

Make sure your dog is ready for the hunting season with tips from BuckedUp Apparel.

  • Shed the pounds. Extra weight is as hard or harder on dogs as it is on humans. It tires and weakens their legs and overworks their hearts. Ideally, you should be able your hunting dog’s ribs and backbone but not see them. If your dog is too heavy, feed him once a day, preferably in the morning, and opt for low-calorie rice cakes as filling treats.
  • Take along fresh, clean water for your hunting dog. A dog will drink a little dirty water if that’s all he can find, but he won’t drink enough of it to keep him properly hydrated. That’s why they’ll dart past a grungy water dish and lap up fresh toilet water instead.
  • Make sure your hunting dog gets lots of free-running and play time off the leash. Chasing sticks and balls exercises more of your dog’s musculature than does running along with you on a leash. It also gives his mind a workout. In a free-running game, he decides when to change his gait, dodge, jump, etc. Hastings also recommends using an exercise ball to help strengthen your hunting dog’s core muscles, which means less pressure on his limbs.
  • When you’re headed out for a hunt, massage and stretch your dog and allow him a few minutes of warm-up play before you start hunting.
  • Take along a leaf of aloe vera plant and squeeze the juice onto the pads of your hunting dog’s feet if they crack or bleed. Use a product like Tuf-Foot to help toughen paw pads and make sure their nails are a healthy length. Nails that touch the ground make for sore feet.
  • Shave long-haired hunting dogs in September to ward off burrs and tangles. Carry along a container of talcum powder or baking flour to sprinkle on and remove burrs while out on a hunt.

BuckedUp Apparel has the hottest line of hunting clothes on the market today. Our women’s hunting tops are big sellers and BuckedUp hunting gear includes hunting backpacks, lunch and can coolers, bottle and can huggers and the famous Snatch Rope. For all your hunting clothes plus great hunting gear, visit BuckedUp Apparel online or find us at our next event.

Meet the Turtleman of Kentucky at the Kentucky Hunting, Fishing & ATV Expo August 14-15

BuckedUp Apparel and the beautiful BuckedUp Girls are on the road again – this time to the Kentucky Hunting, Fishing & ATV Expo August 14-15 at the Frankfort Convention Center in downtown Frankfort. The annual expo features all the newest hunting, fishing and ATV gear and we’ll be there to show off our latest and greatest men’s hunting clothes, women’s hunting clothes and kids’ hunting clothes.

We’re particularly looking forward to this trip for one reason – a loud and loony but loveable character know as the Turtleman of Kentucky. Since the age of seven, Ernie Brown, Jr. has wowed watchers with his bare-handed, adrenalin-jacked pursuit of Kentucky’s snapper turtles. He’s been known to be paid in gas money for his help in ridding the state’s farm ponds of snapping turtles that eat fish, baby ducks and eggs and bite kids, cattle and horses swimming or cooling off in the water.

Bare-handed turtle hunting is considered a rare and dying art, but the Turtleman is doing one heck of an entertaining job keeping it alive. He starts by running full-on into even the murkiest brown and green water. When he spots the tell-tale bubbles that tell him a turtle is lurking beneath the surface, he goes in hands first, sometimes fully submerging himself in waters that we’d rather stay clear of. After a minute or two, he’ll burst out of the water swinging his catch by the tail and letting out his signature “Indian rebel yell.”

“When you hear him holler with a rebel yell, Turtleman’s got another turtle by the tail,” goes a little ditty written for the man whose antics have racked up upwards of 3 million YouTube views.

“They think I’m crazy, but they can’t help but like me,” Turtleman says of his growing legion of fans. Though the thought of going mano a mano with a 40-pound snapper may seem a bit unnerving, Turtleman would have it no other way. He won’t use hooks or any other instrument that may cause harm and he encourages watchers to “respect the turtle.”

“I don’t kill it – I only catch it,” he says.

Hopefully, Turtleman will trade us a few of his “Snapperlicious” logo T shirts for some stylish BuckedUp hunting clothes. If you see him out at the expo, be sure to send him to the BuckedUp Apparel booth. And be sure to stop by yourself for the best looking hunting clothes available.

Ernie Brown, Jr. aka "Turtleman" and BuckedUp Apparel will be at the Kentucky Hunting, Fishing & ATV Expo August 14-15. www.turtle-man.com.
