    Wild edge stepp lovers

    I'm a fan of the WE stepps. It took me a while to be sold on them. But my initial approach was use them for a full season and then decide. Well, 4 years later they are still my go to. I also like the knaider. That combo has been great IMO. Not quite as fast as some other methods (for me), but I...

    Team 2 !

    That's a scenario I understand. Went through the exact same thing with my grandmother last summer. Same age even.

    Worst thing you’ve forgot to take into the field?

    Primer for the muzzleloader. That realization hit when the gun went click with what would have been/would still be the largest buck I've ever taken a shot at at 10 yards. I'm not sure which one of us was more shocked....

    Rutted up deer smell

    Yep...I've definitely smelled it. It's a very distinctive smell. I've run across the smell numerous times close to my spot walking in the dark. Many of those mornings I've had deer come and check out what the sound was after I'm set (I'm not as stealthy as I'd like to be). Before shooting...
