    Protect bow sight while packing in

    I was arranging my gear on my backpack for packing in and didn’t like the way my sight was sticking out to the side and vulnerable. So I put a golf club cover over it. I think that’s going to be the ticket. Here are pics with and without the cover.

    Canoe rack / Headache rack for hard tonneau

    A few years ago I got a deal on a Thule goalpost to help haul my canoe. It supports the back of the canoe. I have been using foam pads on top of the truck cab to support the front of the canoe. My canoe is very heavy. It’s a real pain to load and unload from the truck. I wanted to keep my...

    Meat bags or pillowcases?

    Camofire.com has ovis bags for 39.99. They look good to me. But, would pillowcases, zip ties, and paracord do just as well? I do like the reflective strips and the plastic ground sheet with ovis bags. But $40... I’m thrifty. Share some wisdom with me.
