    Water storage when Truck Camping

    My truck camping water storage bags sprung a leak this weekend. I’m thinking about getting a hard sided container for the added durability. Anyone have a recommendation for what they use? So far I’ve found the common aqua-tainer jugs, but reviews talk about the faucet leaking.

    New Nemo Tensor Ultralight Durability

    Has anyone had any durability issues with the Nemo Insulated Tensor Ultralight pads? I searched the forum but didn’t find anything. I’m trying to decide between it and the Thermarest NeoAir Xlite. Some of the reviews for the Tensor say it’s not very durable.

    Colorado Unit 10

    My dad cashed in his points and drew a Unit 10 3rd season tag. He scouted the unit some last November and we’ll be doing more this summer and fall. But if anyone is willing to have a private chat and share their experience I’d be grateful. If you respond here I’ll send you a PM!

    Athlon Cronus G2 15x56 opinions?

    Does anyone own or handled a pair of Cronus G2 15x56 binoculars? I’m looking to invest in a pair of high power binoculars and have a budget of $1000. The Cronus would enable me to also buy a quality tripod and stay below budget.

    Spotting Scope Magnification Recommendation

    I’m new to western hunting and need some expert advice. I currently have a pair of 8x42 binos and am looking to get a spotter. I mostly hunt elk and muleys, and am not as concerned about trophy size. I don’t need to be able to tell the difference between a 300 and 330 bull at several miles, at...

I’ve killed a few elk on guided hunts but just started DIY hunting last year. Didn’t get an elk but got close. I have an elk hunt and mule...
