Review of Stuffitts Shoe Savers

My good friend Nicole at Hanks Clothing sent me this new interesting product to try out. They are called Stuffitts Shoe Savers. When Nicole first asked me to do the review I was like what the heck are these funny looking things. After I did a bit of research I agreed and thought they would be great tool to make my wife not cringe every time she walked by my shoes and hunting boots.

Review of the Magnum Work Pro Ultra WPi CT boots

*note: Magnum Boots supplied me Free of charge with a Pair of Work Pro Ultra WPi CT boots to test.*

To tell you the truth I have never been much of a boot guy other than of course my hunting boots. After wearing these boots for almost two weeks straight I think I’m beginning to like boots more and more. Follow along as I fill you in on how I put these brand new pair of Magnum Work Pro Ultra WPi CT boots through a series of tests to see how they would hold up.

Spanking new just out of the box

The Leap Frog Bloggers Prompt (1.2)

image credit dmushrush
Okay if you don’t know how this works here are the details. I am going to post a prompt whether it is writing, photo, or recipe (not likely as I’m not a good cook). If you would like to partake just fulfill the topic I select, link back to this post, leave a comment with the link to your post and I will pick my favorite one by Thursday of next week. Then who ever I pick will do the next prompt with the same rules. By the way this was started by Rory at R-Dub Outdoors. I hope you enjoy.

My topic is
Lost, Stolen, or Malfunction Gear which altered your hunting or fishing trip, and how did you overcome it?
I know this has happened to me on several occasions. Having my gun jam or my reel not function properly when I have a big fish on. The one that sticks in my mind the most is my first trout fishing trip with my Father-in-law and Brother-in-law.
It was about three years ago and I was super pumped to go on this fishing trip, so I went out and purchased a bunch of  new gear, a small tackle box, a bunch of new spinners, a new net, a fishing rod that came apart in the middle, a new reel, and some new sun glasses.
After a four hour drive we stopped at the first river. I was so excited to use all of my new gear I forgot to zip my back pack all the way.  I was fishing and having a blast when I decided to change my spinner. I looked into my bag and realized the top half of my new fishing pole was gone. At this point we had already walked a mile and a half up the river bank and let me tell you it wasn’t an easy walk.
Feeling rather deflated I walked back down stream looking for the top of my new pole with no luck. At least I had my ultra light which I had been fishing with the first hour of our trip and would have to use for the next three days.
On the way back down river I look all over again, but nothing I was so bummed. I was so looking forward to using my new pole.
What did I do to overcome this unfortunate situation? I was thankful I had brought two rods along, and concentrated on trout fishing and enjoying my time with my pals.

Good luck and let's generate some traffic to each others blogs.

A Brush with the Other Side

Rory over at R-Dub Outdoors has a cool little thing going on called a Leap Frog bloggers prompt. For more details about the Leap Frog bloggers prompt check out Rory’s post The Leap Frog Bloggers Prompt.
I could go into great detail about my near fall into raging rapids last fall while trout fishing, or the time I almost got run over by a bull moose while deer hunting in Idaho, but I’ll leave those for another time besides they aren’t nearly as chilling as the story I am about to tell.
If you don’t know I hunt public land very often I would say about 90% of the time.

Gosh it must have been about five or six years ago now.  It was just like any other deer season except for the fact that I had actually harvested a deer opening weekend.  Typically when I take a deer early in the season I spend more time walking around trying to sneak up on deer and scouting for new areas to place my stand.

My favorite outdoor Tool: OBN Photo Prompt

Over the years I have had many different guns, boots, coats, hats, fishing rods, and reels the list could go on and on, but one thing I seem to never go without no matter where I go is a pocket knife. I have had a lot of them and they seem to always be the most used tool I have. Here is a picture of my most current favorite tool.

In the past I have always gone the cheap route and just gotten something that will work, but about four years a go for Christmas my Wife Amber got me a Kershaw pocket knife. After I wore that one out I had to purchase another one. I guess you could say I'm on a Kershaw kick.  Anyway what is your favorite outdoor tool.
Oh don't forget to check out other bloggers favorite tools on the Outdoor Blogger Network.
