Cool Duds for My Button Bucks

Those boys you see in the photo above are mine.

Toby is 8, and Timmy is 6. They're both into archery already, and Toby just started shooting in his first league with his new PSE Chaos. Timmy is just strong enough to start drawing his brand new Bear Apprentice 2, so he feels like pretty big stuff, even if we haven't yet introduced a peep sight and release aid. We try to shoot together at least a couple times a week.

A couple months ago, I found out about a new company called Button Buck that is making a line of really cool kids clothing that celebrates the outdoor lifestyle. I brought home a couple of their hats and shirts and gave them to the boys, and lo and behold, they loved the stuff. I never said a thing about them, but those shirts have become some of thier favorites and will be worn out before we know it. Makes me wonder if maybe I'm doing something right...




Button Buck was founded by Brad Christian and his wife, Laura. The self-described "modern hunters" said they were inspired to create the stylish, high-quality line after they started a family of their own and discovered there was nothing available for their kids except "cheesy" hunting T-shirts.

As Brad says, " If our goal was to display our love for hunting at the expense of our style, we'd wear our waders out to dinner. But when it comes to our lifestyle clothing choices, 'style' is a prerequisite for our picks. We wanted subtle design inspired by our outdoor culture. We also wanted the same quality, cut, and ultra-soft finishes enjoyed in the mainstream. And with nostalgic memories of cool brands from our own childhood, we were motivated to create a relevant brand for a new generation."


So, Button Buck was born. I say kudos to the Christians, and if you are looking for some cool duds for your own button bucks, look HERE.
