    Making sausage

    My dad and I made almost 100lbs of meat yesterday. The women did help pack bags and clean. We did a million brats, a bunch hamburgers with his new patty maker (which was slick), and the rest we ground with beef fat. I’m sore from the hand crank stuffer but other than that I’m happy with a full...

    How far would you realy shoot?

    I think the sound is way more of a factor than it’s made out to be. Sound is fast.

    Stone Glacier Avail Users

    I have one. I use it for travel and just a general backpack. I don’t use it for hunting because I prefer a smaller and more quiet pack in a tree. I have an xcurve frame with a couple Stone Glacier bags that I use out west so I don’t use it there either. It is a very well made and a thought...

    Climbing platform this year?

    I don’t understand why there’s a need for perfectly strait trees with a hand climber. Obviously, strait trees are easier but that is the case with every method out there. Limbs could be a problem but add a two step aider and you cross them with ease. In my eyes the only downsides to the lwhc...

    Hunting Hoody

    I really like zippered pockets. I hate getting them full of bark and junk from the woods. Nobody offers a garment that checks all my boxes...

    Interesting, who’s going to try it first?

    I had success unless it was windy. I did not like lugging the equivalent of a surfboard through the woods.

    Light season and mid season bibs

    I have been using firstlite Northbranch bibs for years.

    crazy idea: torso wrap to prevent draft in saddle and mimic bibs somewhat?

    Cool idea! But, I would just buy bibs because they are great. If they are too warm then buy another pair!

    Legitimate Concern?

    I never thought about it until that^ thread. Granted, I haven’t done anything to change it either. I am more aware I guess. I haven’t seen a great solution that works with rappelling, something removable at height.

    Favorite platform for no sticking?

    Oh, I am! But the aider let’s you start above the big base of the trunk so there are fewer belt adjustments. It also makes traversing limbs a breeze.

    Favorite platform for no sticking?

    LWHC with two step amsteel aider. Before that I used two of my old klemz platforms with the same two step aider.

    Prusik Knots are There for a Reason or Newbie Lesson Learned

    This is a GOOD thing! It’s the best way to learn. Also, it gives you major confidence in how safe you really are now. Plus it demonstrates how easy it is to recover compared to your typical safety harness.

    Windproof glasses

    I would try to find snowboarding/ski goggles I bring mine out when the ice fishing gets brutal. Maybe something your glasses fit inside.
