I'm starting to see the light. But y'all haven't met my kids - they won't fit in these buckets (5' 10" to 6' 8").

Coming soon - buckets with LIDS, not kids.
Ok, Ok, so maybe a minimum order quantity of 1008 for custom buckets is a bit prohibitive ... but I still see the opportunity to heighten the fun and make a buck at the same time...

@DanO - rumor has it that you're working on a super-secret new product with @onestringer and @Nutterbuster.

I keep looking, but I can't find the listing for the Official Eastern Woods Outdoors, 2021 Limited Edition, Signature Series 5, 7, & 10 gallon bucket wrap featuring the full color EWO logo, "Huck it, I'mma Sit on My Bucket - Official Contest Entrant", Nutterbuster signature, and official contest logo (Elmer Fudd sitting on a bucket, aiming his shotgun at Bambi). Where'd you hide the link, DanO?

I've got this fist full of $20 bills just burning a hole in my wallet and a desire to put some bling on my bucket. Y'all don't seem irresponsible enough to leave money on the table or in my wallet ... the clock's ticking ... put that listing up on the site and start taking orders!

also automatic win if you kill a deer with a frisbee.
I tried and tried but just couldn't get the utility blades to remain attached. I tried hot melt, insert epoxy, jb weld, etc and the blade to frisbee connection would fail.....chemical weld will be my last resort.

I currently have them riveted on and the blades seen to be surviving impact but I'm really having a tuff time getting the flying disk to tune...or maybe it's my grip? Any suggestions?..... 10" diameter disk, 2,700 grain, 175 throw weight, 26 blades at .025 blade thickness, and I used stainless rivets to increase my Further Off Center

Perhaps use your metal fabrication skills to shape a metal frisbee with a razor sharp edge going all the way around minus a spot for your hand to hold it.

Just found this on amazon…the ultimate bucket tether carabiner. It even has a bottle opener for those barley pops. Plus a key ring for your truck keys. Wonder if its rated for 200x safety?
For everyone that wants a redundant system this might be the answer… just imagine being able to hook in two bucket tethers to one point of connection! :sweatsmile: I even see additional holes for mounting you bow hoists
