you can also use the pads with adhesive on them for the soles of your boots to spread scent while walking

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

The last few years I've been lucky enough to go on some exotic hunts through my job to some very nice ranchs with very nice lodges and such and they have been great fun.I've spent my whole life that I can remember going hunting thanks to my dad.Right now today I get the most enjoyment hitting the open woods(national forrests) with nothing but my shotgun and my trusty ole compass.Getting a wary deer hunting on his terms is the most satisfying feeling I can think of ever having.Thats about as cheap as the sport can get.This year I'm venturing into the sport of bowhunting.I purchased my bow on e-bay for $51 shipped to me.Spent about another $150 on accesseries and I'm ready to try it.That seemed reasonable to me also and gives me another whole month in the woods doing what I love.It will be a lot cheaper next year-maybe a few arrows and another target.The price of hunting license and all the tags (they come up with more every year ti seems) is kinda high but affordable for being my hobby of choice.If I couldn't get on the water or into the woods on a regular basis I think I'd lose my mind.But maybe I already have.LOL

the woods/water has the power to soothe the soul

I don't think all "NEW" hunting things are necessarily gadgets..
A good example might be,,, a person that can't walk for great distances or stalk may opt for a treestand to increase his or HER odds.. I personally don't want to use a treestand because I don't like the feeling of being confined to just one tree or one hunting area...

Everything manufactured solely for the purpose of hunting has a use and a user, just because it's made doesn't mean we ALL need it.
When I see something new for hunting that might be considered a manufactured gadget, I start trying to analyze why they made it and who was it targeted for..... Maybe it was designed for someone that's handicapped or physically challenged in some way.. PERSONALLY, I'm still waiting for them NEW "Round The Corner Arrows" those are the ones that allow you to shoot that Deer thats standing just around that big ole Oak tree and refuses to come into the "ZONE" NOW that's what i'm waitin on.... LOL

hello, i'm for all of it ,old and new. thank goodness for some of the new easy care cold weather stuff and my old 788 rem still does a heck of a job. i flip flop between the latest and greatest and if it ain't broke don't fix it. that's what is great about it- we can have it all. new stuff is like packing for a trip ,it's half the fun. there is a comfort in tried and true. it all works if your having fun --------good luck.
