    Anyone in Georgia want to go Elk Hunt?

    There is nothing like it. The only way I can describe it is like turkey hunting on steroids. I went to Idaho last fall. I had the time of my life.

    Making sausage

    I have a pellet smoker that is going to be here tomorrow. I am planning on making some snack sticks soon. How did you cook yours? What seasonings did you use? I'll probably go with some from Hi Mountain.

    First Lite Merino base layers

    I used the first lite this year for an elk hunt in Sept in Idaho. Works great. I also bought a pair of the Kuiu zip off's. The zip off's have been awesome just for the convenience of not having to take outer pants and boots off and on. I highly recommend the first lite shirts with the kuiu bottoms.

    Webbing or amsteel?

    Why do you use a caribiner on one side? Couldnt 2 triglides be used with no caribiner? I am looking at trying the webbing and triglides since I just have the fixed 30 inch bride on my mantis.

    Mystery Ranch Pop Up 28

    Do they make a child seat accessory that can be placed where the meat shelf is?? LOL. If they did I would buy one in a second. DSS would probably frown upon me using bungee cords or ratchet straps to keep my kid in. :flushed::fearscream::tearsofjoy:
