I've found a compromise in the way I go about spending money on my hunting needs. I've fabricated a "rig" that has combined my treestand ladder and deer cart into one item. Granted, it's not exactly high class, but it is functional. I also made my treestand blind out of camo fabric at a cost of $2 a yard. I use a pole from my ground blind to hang it. Again, not totally sophisticated, but functional.

I find this "hunting on a budget" to be part of the challenge. But this thought comes from a guy that goes hunting on a honda rebel 250cc with his gun mounted across his handlebars or strapped to the luggage rack. Yes, it is quite a sight that most would just shake their heads at.

I have noticed a lot of "gadgets" while diving back into this sport. I also feel that hunting is something different to all of us. Whether one chooses to employ remote predator calls or hunt in blue jeans, the great thing is that we're all out there maintaining a heritage and tradition that is productive and enjoyable.

Hunting can be expensive so when I started a few years ago I bought a used bow just to see if this was something I wanted to do,I did so I bought a new bow & full set up and I do plan on using this for years to come,,now we've all seen all the remarkable products out there and yes if there's a market for it someones gonna try to sell it whether or not the thing works or not and yes I've bought a handfull thats gone in the trash and I sure I try more stuff,,,thats where other hunters come in,the ones who have tried these items and ones that have not and are looking for advice, yes the hunter is what has made hunting into a booming buisness and I can't wait till sept 15th to try out the deer pee I bought back in febuary

I USE 35MM FILM CANs stuffed with cotton then i tie a clothspin to them with tape you use to track deer with.the tape allows you to find them the clips allow you to clip them to the trees the cans are sealable so you dont get scent all over your gear .you can get the cans for free at drug stores that do film developing for free total cost is about 50 cents

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. 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
