    This is only my 3rd season in, but what I have learned so far is get something that is going to be comfortable! If you plan on sitting for a long time, spend the better money on something that is going to be comfortable for you! There are plenty of "good-priced" items out there without having to break the bank.

    I have a wishlist of many items. I plan on pimping out my mountain bike to go deep on public. Need to put a rack on the back and something that will hold my bow. I also would like another trail camera. :tu:

    Was thinking maybe a few hawks and another scentblocker suit. Relatively cheap off-season! :nana:

    I need replacement cables for my Summit climber. I may pick up a Hawk stand and sticks if I can. The big purchase will be buying a crossbow for my sons to use. This year will be the first time they are old enough to hunt but they cannot pull back enough draw weight on a compound yet.

    I just bought a used Mathews Halon. So I think the only thing on my list that I need are a couple or several more trail cams as well as a couple more tree stand buddy attatchments.

    This is the best one yet. My Dad just turned 65 and I know the number of adventures we will have together are numbered.

    I tried a Gooserbat call last year and liked it. Granted it was my first season. I bought two more of their calls for this season. I got their Bacon and Double Bit calls. $10 each and free shipping. They sound great to me.

    I may get new strings for my Charger. I have broadheads and got an XOP climber last season. Also have a dozen uncut Axis arrows that I got a deal on. My brother is closing on some property in May. So I might put some money towards food plots.

    I am in the market for a folding saw for the upcoming season. What brands do I need to avoid that are just crap and for the money what is the best buy? Can anyone recommend anything for me?

    Check out the Wicked Tree Gear saw. It's probably the best saw I have used. Another option is look on Arborist gear sites, there saws are made for pro use every day and hold up alot better then most junk out there.
