    Does you survival gear work??

    That Inreach Explorer thing sounds pretty good to me , will it work anywhere ?

    started any scouting yet???

    Not yet but I’m planning on goin out next week. I have to move a couple stands and trail cams and try to find at least one or two new spots for the fall

    This is a great thread , very informative , yeah that’s what I figured with the cotton balls and vaseline, do you know how effective it is? I think I would bring a bunch in a ziplock bag as a backup but maybe also bring one of those little fuel canisters as my primary fire starter

    I’m not that hard core but would like to get into some survival hikes and hunts requiring those skills: so what’s the vasaline and cotton balls for anyway?

    How many times if any have you been lost in the woods ?

    When you spend slot of time in the woods it’s bound to happen . I’ve been temporarily lost at most maybe a few hours but always have made it back . From those experiences , I’ve learned to become much more aware of my surroundings and pay attention to detail more effectively . Still not foolproof though. ALWAYS make a point to check your direction when. First entering the woods and plan which direction you need to get out . You’d be surprised at the guys that don’t do even that

    Check your tree?

    Shit that sucks , even if it’s been years , it’s a lot of work staying up a new one. Sorry that happened but part of hunting I guess

    ESPN Olbermann calls for Turkey Hunter to be harassed

    Yup , I agree. It’s ok to be a liberal but it’s NOT ok to use your position as a public commentator to call for the harassment of someone engaged in a completely legal pastime just because you don’t agree with or support the pursuit of that pastime. I never liked this guy and I see that he hasn’t changed at all since he was fired by MSNBC. Shut up and do your sports commentating Keith and keep your politics to yourself!!

    Food plots on public land

    Why Fatboy , did it say somewhere on the thread it’s only legal in certain areas or situations that I missed? Thanks

    Food plots on public land

    Actually I just did some research and I found an old thread from this forum from 2011 where the guys were saying it is perfectly legal to establish and hunt over a public land foodplot .

    Food plots on public land

    Yes , that sounds right Storm, I guess best way to find out is do some research and make a phone call to the regional office

    Ozonics for Scent Control

    Ok thanks, I wonder about the 300 model that you hang next to your stand? It’s supposed to block your scent and give you that edge; since ozone is denser than air , I imagine you hang it high and let it drift down to you , any one ever use that model?

    Ozonics for Scent Control

    Ok that’s a good price compared to those ones you take out into the field. Might be worth it to try one out
