    Ukraine / Russia

    I’ve followed this thread for the past few days and have read through most of it. I appreciate the different views and information many have posted. It looks like this is only on one rail for the time being, but hopefully gets back on track... Regardless of your thoughts politically, one thing...

    New Men’s mountain clothing line

    That’s the type of innovation I like to hear about.

    New Men’s mountain clothing line

    I’m gonna have to pass on the rompers in the right hand column. Some of us don’t have precious seconds to waste getting our torso out of the top half before dropping heat. My backpack hunt would be over before it started.

    Tree Saddles. Thoughts, Tips, Stories?

    I’ve been having that problem with the daisy chains on my sticks. It lightens the load not having cam buckles but I waste a ton of time trying to get them set. They never line up correctly and if it’s too loose I don’t trust it not to kick out. I think I may go back to cam buckles just so I can...

    Tree Saddles. Thoughts, Tips, Stories?

    Well it was amateur hour this morning climbing the tree. I clanked every peice of gear that was capable of making a noise, tangled my bow rope around myself and then left my release at the base of the tree. I think I’m just going to do two trips up. Too many things strapped to myself getting...

    Tree Saddles. Thoughts, Tips, Stories?

    I use a metcalf as well without the lid and have been busted several times by it hanging off the tree. Dunno why I never thought of using just the lid in the tree. Great idea.

    Tree Saddles. Thoughts, Tips, Stories?

    My new two panel ESS saddle came in and I’m excited to give saddle hunting another shot. I’m more excited to not have to carry or deal with the climber. It seems very comfortable but holy moly did that thing have a lot of metal clanking pieces. I spent an hour and a roll of stealth strips making...

    First Time Pointing A Gun At Someone

    @Addicting This is not meant sarcastically or as a jerk, but how would you have handled this situation differently? From what I read, someone ripping a round off at 3am near your tent in the backcountry would justify an armed response. He assessed what was perceived as a threat and determined...

    First Time Pointing A Gun At Someone

    Hopefully the OP hasn’t retained any of these internet lawyers. It’s not that hard to articulate that a strange person entering your camp at 3am and waking you up with gunfire could make you fear for your life. The OP didn’t come out blasting and ask questions later, he handled it properly and...

    Do overs 2021 while hunting..

    Archery whitetail hunting Thursday night. Had a 1.5 point tiny buck that kept hanging around my stand. He left and I heard him coming back out an hour later from behind. I took my time to get in position and when he got close I peaked around the tree. It was not that tiny buck, it was a giant PA...

    I ordered a two panel ESS to try out. Do you put pouches on your recon for ropes?

    Tree Saddles. Thoughts, Tips, Stories?

    I bought a Tetherd Menace and a Predator XL last year and hunted out of it in the beginning of this season. I got pretty dialed in with it and killed a doe out of it. I loved how light weight and easy it was to get set up, but I was having trouble setting up for my strong side and having a clear...

    PA bear season!

    Good luck! I walked up on this guy while archery hunting in PA on Monday. I think I may grab a tag just in case.

    Looking for DIY Deer Processing Ideas

    Good replies and ideas. I would like to try quartering in the field on public, but Id like a colder day since Ive never done it. One of the farms I hunt the property is small and the old man is nice enough to drive to the deer and drive it out to my truck whole. I think I’ll get myself a pulley...
