The tree lounge. So comfortable you can sleep in it. Yea, because it is so heavy and you are so tired after carrying it in and setting it up that all you want to do is sleep. The ads showed Margaret in hers but didn’t show the guy carrying it in and setting it up for her.

I saw a commercial the other day for a pill to take to overcome buck fever. It was called Aimcise.

LOL!

My great uncle Mike hunted from the time he was old enough to legally hunt until his passing at 81. He never wore anything but red/black plaid Woolrich (hat, coat and pants)Northern rubber boots, never owned a deer call or used a single drop of cover scent. He carried a good weapon and killed more deer than anyone I know..........the old fashioned way. Hunting the woods, no shooting houses, ground blinds, etc.
He never owned a single piece of camo clothing in his life. LOL.

I have fallen for the latest/greatest gimmicks over the yrs. but am finding. Go back to the basics is working just fine for me as well, and I tag out every yr. with my deer kills.

It is a money making industry out there and the hunters are supporting it.

Shy of my GPS and maybe a trail cam, both help me to get to and locate deer. I can't think of a single other item I have purchased over the yrs. that actually walked a deer into my freezer.

Never bought any of the Drake stuff, honestly all my camo either lightweight or the insulated stuff I use Magellan which is Academy Sports brand. It is at a good price point and it has had up well. I agree on the Thermacell though it is aust have for turkey and early deer season.
