    Save your money on “Scent Control”

    Breath odor is a great illustration that most of us should be able to relate to in terms of detectable odor. Bad breath comes from poor oral hygiene and even a human nose can detect bad breath. If you are face to face with bad breath its actually repulsive. If you are a few feet away, you might...

    Covid found in deer populations

    I have it all figured out... We toss a used face diaper in the trash, and the coons get infected from rooting in our garbage cans and then the coons pass it on to the deer by inappropriate behavior (kissing as shown in this pic). Oooo, look, she has her eye closed in passion. Photos don't...

    Save your money on “Scent Control”

    Nobody is mentioning bow versus gun hunting. I assume most of us are bowhunters that talking odor versus wind. I seldom gun hunt anymore but I know it's a lot easier to just hunt the wind or to be less concerned about odor when I can sit 100 yards off the deers' travel route. I assume it's a lot...

    Save your money on “Scent Control”

    I listened to an excellent Stickboys podcast the other day with Ryan Rothaarr (Roger's son) and he was talking about something the Wensel boys talk about... The best wind for a stand is when its "almost wrong for me and almost right for the deer". Deer are moving in relation to the wind in a...

    Save your money on “Scent Control”

    I'm skeptical that most of the "wind guys" don't truly understand how complex wind patters really are. Patterns certainly are not static, meaning its not consistent across the landscape in relation to the prevailing wind. Wind is incredibly dynamic and has a pile factors that influence what...

    Covid found in deer populations

    I completely agree. But I'm not sure we can take this discussion in certain directions or the mods will lock it for being political. I could imagine that the powers that be would restrict transport of game and commercial processing. They'd probably prohibit donating to food banks, too.

    Covid found in deer populations

    This is obviously an evil plot by the car insurance industry to eliminate the deer herd.

    What tool/item/method/setting have you tried once and never again due to experience?

    I had bad luck with DDW scent killer spray. It did not kill some common oders to the human nose let alone a deer nose. DDW company said the spray has a shelf life and it was probably old when I bought it. So they sent me new stuff...not sure it worked any better than the "expired" stuff.

    Acme do-it-yourself home lobotomy kit. Trust me they do not live up to the hype.

    TruAngle broadhead sharpeners

    This is the file block and I also have the stone block. I don't think these are made anymore. Nice for a file sharpened edge on 2 and 4 blade (bleeder) heads. The stone is a fine stone. Not sure exactly what the degree of angle is on these but it works pretty well. The files are a little worn...

    25% off broad heads at Grizzlystik

    You bet they are. I get a pucker every time I try to pull one out of that case. Ha, I always pull heads out with my bow hand, never my draw hand. I could envision serious cuts to the fingers...for sure.

    25% off broad heads at Grizzlystik

    Grizzly broadheads are not the same as Grizzlystik broadheads. You can buy glue-on Grizzly but no glue-on Grizzlystik.

    Common problem with any folding platform or stand

    I have some el-cheapo Chinese stands that the bottom stand-off is not part of the posts, it's part of the platform. When the platform is cammed-down, the stand offs bite into the tree. These stands do have a fixed standoff on the top but I would imagine the stand off could be part of the folding...
