    What's in Your Shopping Cart This Spring

    Each Spring I can't wait for the big game hunting seasons to start. In anticipation for the late summer and fall hunts I get started with new purchases for the year. Last year it was a new bow and tent. This year I've started with an order of GU Chomps, gels, and Roctane drink mix. Next I'm going after a large supply of Mountain House meals and a new pack. I'm also thinking about a new fixed blade knife and possibly a new head lamp-thinking about the Princeton Tec. Remix Tactical with red and blue lights.

    Wanted to know what y'all are planning on getting for the upcoming year.

    A good pair of hunting boots.

    MSR Groundhog tent stakes

    Bridgford sandwiches, FRS chews and powder, Ramien and Tuna packs.

    So far I've picked up:

    Garmin Foretrex 401 GPS

    Exped Synmat 9 sleeping pad

    One pair of Smartwool Merino wool undies

    Wild Country (Terra Nova) Duolite tent

    Gerber Camp Axe w/ saw

    Ah, the nostalgic aroma of a yak dung stove brewing up some tea full of herbs best left untranslated.

    I like the Streamlight Idea I'll have to check it out along with the Garmin, I haven't seen that one before.

    I have the Streamlight fullsize light and I love it, having the variable brightness is really nice. The head on the fullsize and compact swivel, which is really handy.

    The Foretrex is a barebones GPS, it doesn't have the color LCD display or maps, but it's small and light, displays just what I want and it's cheap compared to the others.

    If you want something with the maps and color display, check with some of the other guys, some of them got Garmin Oregons and Montanas and they can fill you in on them.

    The new long Range Accubonds, and a Wyoming land ownership gps chip pending the draw results. A new spotting scope would be nice but I think that is more of a pipe dream as I am broke.

    I'll take a Nv deer tag and while I'm shopping ill take a Antelope tag too. That's it. Not to much to ask for rite?

    I'm pretty set up for gear. I do like the sound of that light. I would like to get a new set of Gaiters from REI.

    I am much like IKIC, I have a lot of gear. I have a couple of good hunts coming up this year and I am trying to figure out how I can swing one of these.http://www.cap-pack.com/#!cap-pack/c1peb
