    I think if you are smart, you should not have any problems. Minnesota is blessed to have a lot of public land and plenty of space for everybody to spread out and enjoy. Wear orange, maybe put an...

    I think the PF On the Wings Podcast was referencing something more like these. One is listed as hip waders and one as chest waders, although they both have the same picture... Pretty mixed reviews...

    The only real reason I haven't got them, even though it says fits over boots. Is I am willing to bet they will not fit over my size 16 boots no matter what they say.

    From what I understood on the podcast, they weigh almost nothing and fold up so small that they fit in your pouch and you hardly realize they are there. The ones referenced in the podcast fit over...

    I've got one that I used to use. I have a human chest mount that I kind of modified to sit on top of the dogs back. Also used the human head mount and put it through the dog collar so it sat just...

    And I just want to clarify, I'm not saying avoid the local restaurants. Just that a budget trip can be done if you really want to. It is also very enjoyable to get breakfast and coffee with the...

    Agree and disagree. If you are spending thousands, you are probably hunting pen raised birds at a lodge anyways. To me, SD is about watching the time to see when it is 10:00am, and again when it is...

    Off the top of my head, I am not sure what brand mine is. I don't think it's anything fancy though. Works great and I use it all the time, almost everytime I wear a pair of boots now. I have a pair...

    Never completely okay to be "grouchy." However, common sense needs to be used by the hunter as well. Don't make them stop the combine, ever. Don't make them climb down out of the combine or tractor....
