As I was unwrapping a present from my sister this Christmas, everything seemed fine.  That is, until I opened it.  A Jagermeister gift set?  She knows that I hate that bottled vomit with a seething…Continue

Hunting: Questions, Concerns, and General Discussion!

It seems to me that not many men on the board are discussing the finer points of hunting, it's equipment or tactics. Why is this? There are so many facets of the sport that are considered quintessentially manly, yet I don't believe it is getting adequate coverage. So I propose this be a post dedicated to answering questions or concerns about hunting or gear that any of you might have. If I don't know the answer I will attempt to find it.
