I will never understand the butthurt some people get about the dang SItka gear. It isn't the first high priced duck gear. IT won't be the last. Lots of people that have Yeti's don't get all up in arms when someone makes a comment about that. Or Benelli's, or Patternmaster Chokes, or any other number of discretionary items. Its nice stuff. Its expensive stuff. And in an age when it seems like many people wouldn't go duck hunting if they weren't allowed to post an instagram photo to prove how badass they are, you have to see the humor in it.
