    Work/Free (hunting) time balance

    4-5 As a teacher my schedule is very inflexible. It does allow getting out most weekday afternoons until DST ends (we should all be voting to make DST permanent!). I do get to hunt both weekend days in my state. If I lived in one of those ridiculous no Sunday states I'd have to move! The...

    Catalyst Mini Climbing Sticks

    If they are going to use two bolts per step, why not move the standoff to the bottom bolt so that they can be stacked inline like Beast sticks? The weight is impressive on these.

    Gotcha. Figured such. Thanks!

    Primal steps back on Amazon

    You go buckleless on the step that your platform goes in also? Can't remember if I ever asked you that before. Sorry if it is a repeat.

    Recon Sling Revamp

    Curious about the benefits of a Battle Belt mod. Also, is that a Ropeman1 on your Oplux tether? If so, is it working for you? I ditched mine because it was out of spec but I miss it, especially in the context of a not-so-adjustable bridge. Thought about going back to a thicker tether rope just...

    Hickory Creek Koolaid

    Working on sighting in my mini scope. Crosshairs looking good at 20. 30 reticle is ok, and 40 is surprisingly better. Not worried about distances beyond that. Wondering if there is logic to using a single pin approach, by setting the crosshairs to 27 yards and just using that for all ranges I...

    Steppladder Platform Prototype

    Tough call. I think the ropes would be easier to work with, but by the time you buy primal steps and WE ropes you are almost at the price point of the WE steps. If you are intent on sticking with the Primal Platform I would recommend keeping 2-3 Primal steps unused with original straps as...

    Harken Cam Cleat Question

    Did you use spacers? I think those are the key to using 1/16 tubes. I put them in mine and I think you can get them from McMaster's. Of course, no one should use 1/16 tubes, nor DIY climbing/hunting equipment as you could die.
