Good tool for $10 far from overrated I agree. And it's not for people that can't gut deer the right way? Just a tool to make a job a little simpler?

So people only use gun scopes cause they don't know how to use iron sights?

Only use tree stands cause they don't know how to kill a deer on the ground?

Always use drag ropes/deer carts cause they don't know how to drag just the deer?

Guess all people that use an Xbows don't know how to shot a compound?

Just a tool some people prefer to use.

Baker stands weren't overrated. They were the best we had at the time.

Scent eliminating clothing and sprays IMO. Doesnt matter how much of that stuff you use if you don’t play the wind right you’re gonna get busted every time. Close second for me personally is urine scents or mechanical broadheads.

2x Great tool when used with bone saw. Pull stuff out, then saw pelvic bone, then retrieve plug after pulling out the guts. I know I could tie it off with string then pull tied colon end through pelvic bone and up through gut area and not cut pelvic bone. But I don't want to cut colon then use same knife for other cuts or skinning. I'll cut off plug from gut pile as last step and for me cleaner.

Camoflage gum, really? Never heard of it. That's as good as the breath killer gum. I never did plan on kissing the deer. :lol:

The ozonater has to be the most overrated, expensive and cumbersome piece of gear out there even if it actually works.
