Advice Needed (Warning: Gross)

Postby JPH » Tue Oct 21, 2008 3:30 am

This is a bit personal, but I can't immagine I am alone here.
 
I love morning hunts, but they present a bit of a problem for me. I am one of those guys who can use their bowel movements to set their watch. Every morning, between 0800-0900, I have to do my thing. And to make matters worse, the older I get, the more "urgent" the need. I find it diffacult to hang in there.
 
So my question(s): Does anyone else face this? How do you correct it? Diet? Immodium? Or might it be better to find some way to get that out of the way before the hunt?
 
I know this is gross and I am opening myself up to some serious ribbing, but D&DH is all about practical and comprehensive information. [:D]

Before you leave camp/home, look at your latest 401K report. If that doesn't do it, then yer empty!  [:D]

Bland diet
 
Up your fiber intake slightly
 
Ride a little earlier than you need to.
 
Take a short walk before showing for the hunt, or exercise in the house for a few minutes.
 
Have a good strong cup of coffee.

I agree coffee and a cigarette will break that repetitious event every time for me.  But if you don't smoke, which is something you don't want to take up ever.  Maybe a stick of nicorette, but only when you rise in the morning and hunt, not everyday would have the same effect? Have an extra strong cup of coffee.  It gets the system going I think.  My problem is #1, not #2.  I don't like peeing by my stand, so I have to bring one of those large gatorade bottles to relieve myself every morning at about 9:00.  This is frustrating at times, but I don't want to climb down with my climber stand just to pee and climb all the way back up and resetup.  I hate carrying around a pee bottle, its kinda gross and probably not the best scent free item. Ha[:)]

Mountain dew does it for me in the morning and it only takes about 10 or fifteen minutes to kick in.  Drink it when first get up, eat you breakfast, load up your truck, RUN  to the bathroom and hang on (I'd also suggest turning on the fan),  then take your scent free shower.  You don't want any lingering odors.

What about flatulence while on stand?  Does that spook deer?

Strong coffee and a smoke.  Or just strong coffee  in good quantity.  This will bump up your schedule.

LOL !!!  NO!  In case you hadn't noticed, EVERYTHING that has a lower GI tract farts!  Besides, it sounds like a bit like a tending grunt anyway!

JPH: For what it's worth.........
 
People that show dogs don't want to have a dog make a "kennel point" in a show ring, so in order to get them to take care of biz before hand, a method they use is to take a wooden match stick dipped in vaseline and insert it into the business end of the dog to stimuate the equipment down there.
 
Just sayin........[:D]  [;)]
 
P.S. You do NOT....repeat NOT....., under any circumstances LIGHT THE MATCH!!!!!!  [:D]
