snowshoes

after 30 years in the woods of NH i did some snowshoeing for the first time. went and set a couple cameras on some trails. Did about 2 miles total. it was kinda fun. worked up a good sweat, found some good trails in a new area. found that the tree i got my deer with the PSE is good late season. it had the highest concentration of deer sign around it. i'll check them in a week or so. anyone do any snowshoing? got any tips?

always wanted to try that.the place i went early deer hunting does a snowshoe hunt for grouse and rabbits sounds like fun

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.

And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

i bet it would be fun, joel. good exercise, gets me out in the woods, scouting for next year, all kinds of good reasons to give it a go. I didn't get top of the line they came from wal-mart 275 pound weight limit. they worked well. If I really end up liking it I'll get a good pair.

$80 something like that. they had a pair that went up to 350 lbs but i figure 275 lbs is enough and they are a little shorter. everyone says go with a shoe that will far surpass what you except to be carrying. got a set of old ski poles from my father-in-law and I was good to go.

we dont get enough snow around this part to even think about snow shoes. we might get 4 inches two or three times a seasson but its usualy gone in two days. sounds like fun though.
