Christmas morning gifts ?

Unread postby oldrank » Sat Sep 12, 2015 7:23 am

So you wake up Christmas morning and run to the tree. You have 3 hunting gifts under the tree. What 3 gifts would you be pumped to get and what 3 gift would you smile about but know they are going to the back of the closet to collect dust?

Here are mine

Dust collectors
1. Doe in heat scent. I have used this many times in my hunting career and all I have ever seen it do was scare the heck out of deer. I know guys claim to have success with it but not me. I quit buying it yrs ago.
2. Rattling horns. Same type of situation. I see guys on TV use em all the time and get bucks to come in. I have tried many times in the last 20 yrs. Ive had zero success.
3. A box of buckshot. Buckshot, slug, buckshot, slug.. maybe the most overused phrase in Michigan deer hunting. I like to be deadly accurate and buck shot is not.

Wearing these things out
1. A range finder. I love mine and have really improved my bow kills after buying my first one yrs ago.
2. A deer cart. Cant live without one..seriously Id probably have a heart attack !
3. A sweet flashlight. Cant go wrong with a really nice hunting flashlight that will take some punishment.

While we're all dreaming, I'll take a GA Precision .338 Lapua Mag topped with a Schmidt and Bender PM II 5-25. I don't think there would be any money leftover for two more gifts after that.
