Treestand Clothesline
By R. A. Burgin (Blacksmith)
As a member of the grey-haired group of bowhunters I prefer to hunt on the ground. For those who like treestands, I have an idea for a haul line that is always at hand and less likely to get tangled. . . . keep reading
Zip Tip
By David Petersen
Among the essential items I carry in my hunting pack are plastic zip top sandwich bags. I use them to stash the inevitable small bits of trash that accumulate during every hunt, including . . . keep reading
Keep Tabs on Your Tab
By Philip Cox
Are you are tired of trying to keep track of your shooting tab? Here is a little trick that I use. Sew a thin, 6-inch piece of Velcro to the top portion of the finger hole on the tab. When . . . keep reading

By Melvin Edwards
While trying to get just a little closer to the prey, many hunters take off their boots and continue in stocking feet. This does two things: it cuts down on the noise, and it makes you wal . . . keep reading

Help For Cross Dominance
By Konrad Lau
My father dictated that I was to learn how to do all tasks right-handed, even though I am a lefty. Consequently, I now shoot right-handed but have a dominant left eye. It wasn't until I . . . keep reading
Tag Your Iron
By Guy Perkins, Camp Chef
I clearly remember the purchase of my first dutch oven. I didn't borrow Dad's; he didn't loan his unless he was there to oversee its use. After he passed I inherited one of his favorite 12-inchers, but I'm still a little miffed at my uncle for . . . keep reading
