Hooyman Extendable Saw Review

I received a couple Hooyman extendable saws to review last year. Many of the places I hunt don’t allow you to trim lanes, so I took a little bit of time to get some real use with the saws in order to make a thorough review and give an honest opinion on them. I have […]

One Stick Climbing Method

This is the full gear list for my 2014 rifle elk hunting trip from October 10th-16th. The temperature ranged from 15°F to 55°F, and we got 8 inches of snow on the 2nd day of the trip. This is enough gear to get you by on a solo trip. I went with two other guys, […]

Garmin GPSMAP 62s GPS Review

The video says it all. This GPS has been a highly valued piece of equipment for several years. I don’t plan on upgrading until it dies or I lose it. Based on how it’s held up so far, losing it might be more likely!
