Let's face it, being a hunter is not easy on the old budget and it is getting worse. I could run down the litnay of things that are breaking our banks, but we all know what they are.[:@]
I would like to start a thread where we can share our best cost saving secrets with one another. I have a feeling I am going to need some help.
Here's one of mine:
Archery range finder at no extra cost!
1.Take your compact binoculars out to the archery range with you.
2.Put a dot of white paint on the frame of the binos, right next to the focus wheel.
3.Focus on an object at the exact point of your closest sight pin (in my case it is my red, 20 yd. pin).
4. Put a small dab of red paint on the wheel, across from the white dot.
5. Focus on an object at the exact point of your next pin (mine is the green, 30 yd. pin).
6. Put a small dab of green paint on the wheel, across from the white dot.
7. Once in the stand, you can focus on landmarks and identify what pin to use for a deer at that range.
Okay, your turn.
