I should of added that my friends problem with the SPOTS was in canyons with tree cover, but if you are going to fall down and break a leg can you pick your spot to do it?
One thing that you can do it contact your wife like my brother in law does. He will call her every couple of nights on the cell phone. He might have to drive a few miles to find a signal but he'll do that just to let her know that he is OK.
Anyone who shoots a sabot bullet has had the problem with loading the next round with a dirty barrel we have all struggled with it.
Between muzzleloader shots I have done some research and testing on my own to find out what works for me for the next shot. I have been using a product called bore butter and when the muzzleloader is just sitting around I leave it caked in the barrel for protection. Have also found that if I lube my sabots with bore butter they really slide nicely down the barrel....
