First year out bowhunting in some REALLY heavy Missouri thickets, I ended up getting my gloves (along with other clothes) torn up pretty good.
Amongst the fighting with the thorns and thickets pushing myself thru then, I got my wedding band stripped from my finger and didn't notice till we got back to the trucks.
Only reason I noticed then was a hunting buddy pointed out how bad my hand was cut up......
how about a bushnell range finder. I went out smoke pole hunting and ranged a few yardages, passed a chip shot at a spike, and that was the last time I saw it. sucks too, because I had all the time in the world to use it last season, and I didn't have it...missed three does because of range estimation errors too.
When I went to worlds I read in the rule books absoluletly no rangefinders,so I put it in the tent and havent seen it since.It wasnt even 3 months old! My hunting buddy gave me his old one that he thought he had stolenand had already replaced and Iam very greatful I just wish I had mine back....
I sometimes think I've lost my mind for hunting so much and putting so much effort into it with no results to show for it. Then I see a nice buck or a kill a deer...then I realize why I work so hard at it.:wink:
I have lost keys, knives, and binos. I found the binos about 3 weeks later and full of water i took them apart and cleaned them out good and still works good to this day. Never had a rangefinder but if i do i think ill tie it onto me
I've got one treestand I call "Klepto Stand" because evey time I go hunt that stand I always end up loosing something. One time it was a part of my safety harness, another time it was my Gerber limb saw, and another time it was a flashlight.
Just last year in 1 outing i lost a scent lok fleece beanie & 2 bair of scent blocker gloves. I was walking out of the woods @ dark 1 night & 1 of my zippers on my pack was opened & didnt notice till i got home.
