    Split Llama Rental 2nd Season Unit 35?

    Last year I rented llamas and split the cost with another guy and it worked out great. So nice to have an animal carry your gear and game for you and be so easy to care for. All you do is tie them up at camp and offer them water every so often. And they're nearly silent. The other guy is not...

    Quiet Down!

It's a super-comfortable stand but I sometimes accidentally bump one piece against the other when I set up, making a bad metallic clang. So, I bought 3 rolls of Flex Tape, a 1/16x4/60 rubber tape with an adhesive...

    Base Layers - Merino v Synthetics?

    I wear a merino wool base layer. I like the feel, the odor control, fairly light weight and moisture wicking. It seems like a lot of guys are wearing synthetics now. Have synthetics caught up? What do you wear?

    What Companies Do You Know That are Committed to Quality?

    I thought the Remington bankruptcy, due largely to its cheapening of its own product while it was owned by Cerberus, a private equity firm deserved another thread that explains the problem in more detail and asks which companies, especially outdoor companies are committed to quality? It's a...

    2017 Elk Hunting Partner

    I'm looking to hunt 1st or 4th season elk in Colorado this fall, but at this point I'm solo, which is far from ideal with elk. I don't have any CO elk points but both areas I'm looking at have been better than 65% odds with 0 points and have fewer hunters than the OTC seasons. I'm a dedicated...
