    What do you do with the spurs?

    I like adding legs to my fan mounts. Decided to mount wings too with my bird from last year Sent from my SM-J327T using Tapatalk

    Opening day jake

    That's exactly what I plan on doing with the fan Sent from my SM-J327T using Tapatalk

    Opening day jake

    Heard a ton of gobbling on the roost but they flew down the opposite direction that I was hoping. Got up to take a leak around 8am and 4 jakes where entering the field I was set up on so I sat back down quickly. There was just enough of a hill that I couldn't see them from my chair til they were 30 yards away or so. Thought they would attack my full strut deke but they came to it very cautiously and hung up 20 yards from it. I knew I was gonna be busy this month and wouldn't get out too much this season so I let the closest one have it. If I do get to go out more this year I'll hold out for a long beard but I'm perfectly happy with what I got Sent from my SM-J327T using Tapatalk

    full strut with a jake fan plus a hen has been my go to for early season. usually switch to a lone hen later in the season

    European Mount Question

    yes you can put some dish soap in while it boils, works great. as for whitening, I can't help you there. I like the more natural look so I never tried whitening them. here's mine and my father in laws bucks from this year that I did

    Sitka Gear My review

    those are the exact pieces of Sitka gear I've been eyeballing,(except for the vest because I already own a Milwaukee heated vest) now I might actually pull the trigger on some of this gear. now I have the whole off season to keep an eye on sale prices. my problem has always been sweating up a storm on my way to my stand and then having to sit in it. I sweat so much that no base layer could possibly wick it away. I usually strap my jacket to my backpack but have to wear my bibs on the way in because mine don't zip up enough to go over my boots. looks like the incinerator bibs can be rolled up and strapped just like the jacket and put on when I get to my stand right over heavy boots. seems like the perfect solution to my problem. thanks for the review!!!

    EZ V Sight?

    you make a good point about the really bright insert, that could be an issue

    EZ V Sight?

    even though the main goal of it is to use it as a rangefinder at full draw, that's not really what got me interested in it. its just having that open visual and not having deer blocked by pins. I feel like I focus too much on the pin and the target gets blurry. gonna try it with an open mind. might be a flop but it's worth a try

    EZ V Sight?
