    How much water to you consume on backcountry hunts?

    Thanks for all the feedback! I was consistently sipping from my water bladder but never took more than a sip or two at once because I didn’t want to run out too quickly and have to find a water source. It turned out that my buddies consumed more and ran out quicker. I guess I need to consume...

    How much water to you consume on backcountry hunts?

    Last week I did my backcountry hunt where I camped instead of staying at a hotel/AirBnB. I calculated that for about every 24 hour period I consumed about 1.5 liters of water. This includes water for dehydrated meals, coffee/tea in the morning and general hydration. My buddies consumed more...

    Cheap Stuff that Works

    Not sure if this has been mentioned but I just got a milkshake from Steak n’ Shake and they gave me this long spoon. I could have used this last week for the backcountry dehydrated meals.

    How do you store your gear?

    After working from home for the last year and half and it looking like I’m not going to be called back into the office, I’m considering cleaning out my side of the closet and getting rid of 90% of my dress pants and 50% of my dress shirts to turn the majority of my closet into a “gear room”. I...

    Cleaning a Water Bladder

    Why out it in the freezer? Is it easier to get the remaining drops of water out when they are frozen, or is the freezer just recommended for long term storage?

    Cleaning a Water Bladder

    Thanks a ton for all the feedback! Sounds like I can be a little more thorough with cleaning the bladder. Also, for the record I couldn’t tell you the last time my Jeep was cleaned, probably a couple years ago. My wife just got in it this morning and exclaimed that she’s going to get it...

    Cleaning a Water Bladder

    How are you guys cleaning and drying out your water bladders? I filled the bladder up with soapy hot water and drained it through the hose several times but am wondering if that is enough. Normally I would think that would be good but I pulled it out of storage the other day and there was some...

    Best semi auto pig round and rifle ?

    Sorry to hear about your dad. Yeah, that’s what always intrigued me about the WLV is that many of the components are the same. Thanks for the feedback on performance.

    Best semi auto pig round and rifle ?

    Why the .277 WLV and not a 6.8 SPC in an AR? How does the .277 WLV do on pigs and deer? Do you feel like you are giving much up with the .277 WLV vs the 6.8 SPC? I’ve always been intrigued with the Wolverine but don’t know many who have them.

    WTB Quick release plate for Vortex Summit tripod

    Does anyone have an extra quick release plate for a Vortex Summit Tripod. I called Vortex last week and they said it is on back order and they can mail one out in a couple weeks but that is getting real close to my hint dates and I don’t want to take a chance.
