    Headed for California in the morning. Wish all the stupid people down there luck with me driving through the bay area and if you see an older maroon Peterbilt pouring out black smoke with a Harley on the trailer get out of the way while you still can Im only looking foreward to about 80 miles of this trip and they are the last 80 on my bike all the way at the other end

    I'm not saying I would set up a stand downwind of my quarry and I've had critters bolt as soon as the wind shifted to the back of my neck, but there's something about being 20-25 feet above the ground that makes a big difference.

    Ain't that the truth. Playing the wind is not only cheaper but is also the best way to fool an animals nose.

    One of my new favorite forms of entertainment. Eating outside on the deck, with a hose from the central vacuum to suck up yellow jackets.

    I could see myself doing that with a beer in one hand and the vacuum hose in the other.

    This is the first time I have replied with a quote so I don't know if it will work right. I think people way underestimate an animals nose,but if you can get 25 feet up a tree you can get by with more with your wind and movement, just my opinion.
