I am a Kansas resident and I bowhunt all over. Check out my hunting club, it is cheap and they we 60k acres all over the state, including thousands of acres in unit 7 and 8. Fantastic Whitetail hunting for 1/3 of the cost of an outfitter.
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
