    Removing thinsulate from boots

    Has anyone tried to remove thinsulate from inside of a hunting boot? I got a great deal on some Kenetrek Mtn Guides but would prefer them to be uninsulated if at all possible. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    SPI land closure in California.

    For those that haven’t seen it yet, Sierra Pacific has closed ALL 1.7 million acres of land in California to ALL access due to the current fires and ongoing fire threat. I don’t see this changing by the opening of many deer seasons. It probably won’t open until the first rains. Time for plan B...

    Does anyone have a decent online source for the angle joints to build an internal frame for a wall tent? I have an old forest service 8x10 with traditional poles that I would like to build an internal frame for. Most places I'm seeing want $140-$150 for a angle kit but that seems like a lot to...

    DIY Tut XL

    I decided to pull the trigger on the new Silpoly XL for my Tut XL design. As it looks, it is very similar to Kifaru's Tut, but just taking advantage of the Extra wide fabric. Final footprint is 11'6" x 11'6" and right at 8 ft tall. I haven't had a chance to weigh it yet but my guess is right...

    Cooling Meat in the backcountry

    Just wanted to hear everyone's thoughts on cooling elk quarters in the backcountry. I'm hoping to draw a bull hunt in early September this year where the temps can range up to 100 degrees. Ideally I would have ice chests in the truck to pack the meat back to but when you're 7 miles in it isn't...
