Homemade Stalking Socks
Primitive methods (archery and muzzleloader) require the hunter to get closer to his quarry than rifle hunting does. Stalking socks are soft products many times made of felt that slip over the bottom of your boots and allow you to make less noise as you get up close to game.
Instead of purchasing a pair you can recycle some of your old hunting clothing and make yourself a more successful hunter at the same time. Take an old, worn-out camo sweatshirt and cut the arms off. You can either cut the whole arms off or turn it into a short sleeve. I can make two pairs from one XL sweatshirt if I lop the whole sleeve off. Insert your booted foot as far into the detached sleeve as you can. Now cut the other end at the back of your boot. You will need to use rope, tape, or preferably an extra small bungee cord and to hold the back of the sock to your boot.
Use this money saving tip to get extra close to that big buck this fall.
