    I got it in the States. As Mike said, TSC has it, just not the bulk pure stuff we get across the border.
    Another product at TSC, I’ve heard of is Bronco.....

    I think I have too many decoys! I found another bag with a new avian X Jake strutted I bought last year. I had this niggling memory of this decoy and found it in the garage. I did hunt it last year but forgot until this morning.

    I swear every year my vest gets lighter and lighter. I am tired of taking things I do not need for a long walk in the bush - LOL.

    I'm down to the following:
    - Leatherman tool
    - 2 pot calls (1 slate and one double crystal/slate) and 3 strikers
    - Pot conditioning tool
    - 3 mouth calls
    - Hand trimmers
    - Decoy Stakes (I carry my decoys in a separate decoy bag)
    - Couple of Cliff bar's for a snack
    - Small little of water in metal bottle.......plastic is too noisy

    I also keep a baggie in my vest pocket with my hunting license, my tag, and a piece of rope with loop on the end to help carry the bird out with - much easier on the hands then grabbing the feet for that 1km rad carpet walk back to your truck - LOL

    Pretty much bare bones come with me, I'm only about a 1K walk from my Kitchen. In addition to the basics I also carry a few lozengers in my pocket in case I get a cough.

    And of course I take my Kindle, so I can read while I'm sitting...otherwise I'll fall asleep, snore and then wake up with a Turkey staring at me...from experience

    Man, you guys pack when you go out, it makes me feel like a first timer.

    Generally for me it's a small snack, bottle of water, knife, 2 mouth calls, box or slate call, few shells , compass and my phone.

    MikePal, the Thermacell is a great idea, thankfully I don't have to worry about it yet as the buzzards are still frozen here. 2-4 cm tonight/tomorrow. Last year on the morning of day 5 I burried my truck to the axles in snow, glad its mostly cleaned up here now.

    How is it one careless cigarette can cause a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to light a campfire?

    One hub blind and one brush blind installed. Cameras hung. Decoys checked. Think I might leave my strutter at home this year; its done nothing for me but attract coyotes. Still got to go through my turkey vest and calls (IIRC my vest may need some stitching). Looking forward to calling for my boy on opening morning

    Two rolls in the back of my vest. Couple years back, me and buddy went out to a portable blind i had setup and we were able to slip in with birds roosted directly above us. I lit up a cigar with 10 minutes to shooting light. Huge mistake.. Needless to say those birds were bumped off the tree but we ended up with a couple birds by 7:30 am.
