Update on Menards. Being a large chain, there may be one near you. They still have after season hunting gear on sale. I stopped in and got a list of what MY local store still has and current sale prices. Each store will have diffrent stuff in store right now, but the prices are good.
(31) seat cushions $6 each. (I am rounding all prices up to full dollars to keep it simple.)
(18) 46" rifle cases by Guideman $5 each
(2) Strikezone soft compound bow cases $8 each
(10) 52" shotgun cases $5 each (I bought 2)
(21) Tomcat fixed position treestands $29 each
(1) Fortress fixed position treestand $40 each
(17) bearcat xl fixed position treestand $45 each
(3) hotfoot16' climbing stick by Timberstrike $38 each (I have seen these at $140.)
(13) sky raider 15' ladder treestand $45 each
(3) double vision 15' ladder 2 man treestand $ 75 each
(1) command tower enclosure blind and frame$50 each
(32) stalker blind (pop up) $35 each
(15)blaze orange flex steel blind cap $11 each
(19) blaze orange hub blind cap $11 each
(384) tree step anchors (large) szts-1 $1.19 each
(264) tree step anchors xlarge szts-2 $1.49 each
They also have camo, full zippered hoodies for less than $8 each
I will most likely pick up a couple of these items for this years hunt! At these prices, I may set up a couple of hang on stands with tree stairs (less likely to walk away) or use the climbing sticks and keep them in the trailer after I hang the stands! (until the hunt)
Anyone else find any other great deals? These are NOT advertised sales, just left over from last year. Good hunting!
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.
