If your like me and use the glow in the dark markers to easily and quietley get to ure stand, here is a cheap and easy way to do it. Go to your local hardware store and buy a roll of reflective tape. Cut tape into 3" pieces and cut them down the middle into 1/4" strips. The tape will already have a backing on it so you can take the strips to the field, peel backing off and wrap around libs or stick to tree. The roll of tape will last for years and make your walk in the woods look like an airplane landing strip to your hunting location.

Hmmm. Never thought of that. Nice tip.

Sure you can buy cat eyes year after year or you could go ahead and send me the 50 dollars youll spend over a five or ten year period and ill send you a five dollar roll of tape that will last twice as long.

I buy the reflective tape and put on wooden clothespins and clip on branches that lead to my stand. That way, when you come out of the woods, you can remove them and use again at a later date in another place.
Its a cheap way to mark a trail.

Good addition to using the ref. tape Knothead. That was the only draw back of using just tape, once you wrap it around a limb you cant reuse it. Using clothespins is a great way to reuse the markers.

Been doing that for years, but I also use a roll of twistie ties and tape a square of reflective tape to pieces of it to use on limbs, and actually staple squares directly to trees for permanant markers. These last for 3-4 years.
