Okie that makes sense. I need to get some more culture in me and visit the south and east coast one of these days and venture out of the west to quickly return and understand why I have not ventured far from it lol
Most hunters here in the south are in a hunting club. Here in Georgia most clubs are pretty expensive for the average hunter at anywhere from 400 to 2500 a year depending on the amenitys and the quality of deer on the lease that makes up the club. The other option here is public land. With a three and a hafe long gun season and a twelve deer limit the clubs are worth every penny.
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....
