    Always in my backpack. Big fan of the Buttout!
    I had a buddy that liked to smoke a little weed in stand. He was all giddy about the Cough Silencer, it didn't work :lol:

    That thing really works !!! Worst thing about it is getting everything untangled from it after your done. When you twist it it really grabs hold. Makes me cringe every time just seems wrong

    Uncle Ted pimped a product years ago. Some sort of pouch you could pee in and it would turn into a gell I think?

    While searching through a drawer my at my buddies 77 yr old dads house we found this. I think it’s more effective when it’s vintage??? We were scared to open but we did. Surprisingly it didn’t smell all that putrid. Guessing late 70’s early 80’s?

    Exactly late 70's or very early 80's. All I remember is that it caused quite a commotion when poured into a 7th grade locker. I used it in a few dirt hole sets for red fox back when they were bringing about $75 each. That is when I learned the importance of a good pair of gloves.....which I did not own at the time. :evilgrin:

    I believe I had that exact same brand when I first started bowhunting in late 70' s.

    Another vote for that tool.

    Very nice to have when its freezing cold outside. Don't use it to pull out the intestine-just cut around it.

    The cough silencer was one that didn't do much for me. Seems like every season the first week I get a dam cold with stopped up nose and a hacking cough

    I have shot a peep and kisser for about 15 or so years, no issues...if it twists its not installed properly and or string has stretched.. as far as gadgets...I fell for the rage broadheads...and after 10 years and over 40 dead deer, I keep falling for them

    Used to fall for the scent control gimmick when I was younger. Used to spray everything down and washed my clothes before ever hunt haha

    Other gimmicks that are hilarious to me but never fell for them are the Hecs suits for land animals and Ozonics

    Speaking of hecs suits, my dad and I were at the deer classic in Iowa one year. We got drunk and back at the hotel we saw a commercial for them. One of those I’ll buy it if you do things lol I still wear it because I refuse to throw it away for what I payed for it. I like the mask in warm weather hunts.
