I put a Hazmore seat in my Viper and love it. Less weight and bulk and its super comfortable

Interesting I never had an issue with the seat. That viper is by far the most comfy stand I have too

Hub Blinds for me. I have four now. Each year I hunt them a little more. They are portable, and can be set up most anywhere. Stay out of the wind and rain. I have brought a small heater during real cold days. Very comfortable with a nice, oversized folding chair inside.20211121_072929.thumb.jpg.833dcafa65e855e881112e13b3639503.jpg

I find it difficult to narrow down my list to one thing.

It may be a pair of lightly insulated bibs.Not even sure about the brand. They are stretchy. I will never by another pair of work or hunting pants again that do not stretch. Unbelievable how much more comfortable and freeing they are. Wether kneeling,climbing , or  falling. Ha.ha .ha

My portable sawmill, making box blinds and other projects are so much cheaper and easier...  going to make a covered truss bridge to span creek where I now have a cable bridge, preferably strong enough to let a 4 wheeler over it...

Here ya go...

My everyday field /hunting knife is the one on the far right.  I have added to it with three other bone handled versions, all but the one with the silver coin lanyard are seconds bought from the factory for 1/2 price, the silver coini lanyarded (2nd from L )  is the only custom I ever had done...flat ground high carbon. Crazy sharp, but by the time the flat grinding is done the blade is so thin it isnt appropriate for field use.  Otherwise they hold an edge crazy long, easy to sharpen and the offset handle is much more natural than a normal knife handle. The short stubby knife is one I made and carried for years, but retired for the G. #1. 

The rifle photo is the only one i have. It is from the rock in Newfoundland I shot from to get my moose.  (rifle has its original barrel in 8x57 Mauser, with my handloads.

Just don't use it in the grinder this time!!!!

That’s one lesson that I learned the hard way.  I am thankful that my kids didn’t find any of those little orange chips in their tacos.  I threw away a pound or so of grind, after it grabbed and took off part of the tip, but I missed one little chip and I found it in my leftover D22FFC80-F89E-488A-8E36-F7225E9F2BE1.thumb.jpeg.36c6b10ef0cfaeabdadcaafbc727b1f9.jpegchile at work.

A hammer handle makes a much better grinder stuffer:

Is it ever time to upgrade anything?

It was time to upgrade the knife and 3/16 screen on that grinder this year ($ 30 from Amazon).  Years ago, there were a few guys around who would sharpen them, but all that I knew have passed on.

Going to be looking for a Jet Sled when season closes ( day after tomorrow ) for the dual purpose of Deer Dragging and Ice Fishing !

I was just in Runnings, Lockport store and they had a heck of a selection of different sizes of those sleds.

Nice pics.   I need to try one of those knives out.  Grohman?

Yep. All are the #1, but I now have a #3, which is alternately called the boaters (or yachtsman) or the Canadian military Jump knife, which is similar in configuration but has bit straiter blade and heavier tang. A bit better for an all around camp knife.

Right...

The tag line for the come along isn't very visible in that picture, but it kept enough tension on it that it wasn't going anywhere. At one point we had to disengage and it the tower was briefly suspended with only the come along securing it.

Twist was our biggest concern.

The farm jack was lag bolted to a scrap piece of 2"x12" wedged in to the ladder and there was a scrap piece of 2"x4" attached to the runner via lags and tension.

Every couple clicks on the farm jack we cinched the come along to keep pace with the overall lift.

It's anchored on all 4 feet with spikes and a auger style anchor with cable in the center.

Lacrosse burly air grips. I don’t know if it counts because I buy a new pair every year.

I’ve had those boots on for probably 45 out of my lst 50 deer.

100% my favorite boot of all time. I too go through a pair every season.

As you age, boots like that with zero real support will be a no go...........you'll be using a boot with laces and good insoles down the road.

Enjoy while you can........ :)
