Ack, I use those sometimes as well on a short trail- pretty visible day or night as they are reflective. They make them in brown as well to hide them from hunters during the daytime but they reflect light at night. Also, waving something white like TP around in the brush during gun deer season on heavy pressure public land in MidMichigan really isn't the greatest idea. :shock:


Yep....I use the brown markers. 8-)

A homemade inexpensive version of these is to by a "hundred pack" of wooden cloths line clips and duct tape a piece of surveyor tape to it... They come in handy in the cattails where everything looks the same for a mile.

Great tip Dan- that's a good sized pile of inexpensive markers. 8-)

a little trick i learned was use hydrogen peroxide in a spray bottle as stated above mixed with a bright pink food coloring. one color you never see in the woods is pink. when you spray the ground watch any spot of blood foam up bright pink!!!! works awsome
IS IT HUNTING SEASON YET????
