Camo clothing is expensive and I don’t see the price going down anytime soon. Hopefully I can provide you with some tips to keep that clothing usable a bit longer.

-When washing, turn everything inside out.

-Wash in cold only.

-Unless your clothes are really dirty, I use the gentle cycle on all my camo.

-The only product I use to wash my clothes in is baking soda.  I am not saying there aren’t good products that might offer a scent free wash, I just don’t use them.  I usually line the bottom of the washer with baking soda, fill up the washer 1/2 way withclothes, layer with baking soda, load more clothes and top off with baking soda.  Just be sure to break up any lumps before you put the lid down.

-I have been told that hanging the clothes up to dry also cuts down on the wear and tear but honestly, that isn’t going to happen in my house.  So I usually put the clothes on medium or light heat.  Some dryers might state delicates.  I just don’t use the full high heat.

-If the clothes are going to be stored for the next season, I make sure they are completely dry then fold them up and place in plastic containers with a locking lid.

-If I am still using my camo, they are packed up either in a scent free duffle bag or the plastic bin I have designated for that season.

-I usually have a plastic bin for heavies and winter camo and then a different bin for spring camo.  That might seem redundant but I got tired of yelling who has my wool socks?  Where are my gloves?

-While camo clothing is designed to be tough and rugged, it doesn’t do anyone any good if it’s washed out and faded.  Sometimes just a bit more care will help you keep those much needed tools of the hunt a bit longer.

Happy Hunting!

Last night I got out my Cabela’s Big Game Hunter for the Wii and started playing it.  I started with some target practice.  It starts you out with easier targets and they get harder and harder.  You can shoot all kinds of geese and ducks and then it moves you to rabbits and deer before you start getting attacked by mountain lions and bear!  It’s very addictive and fun!

Finally, once I had the controls down and was confident about my shooting abilities, I moved on to the hunts.  Again… the first hunt is simple and walks you though all of the controls which it actually does a very nice job of.  Each hunt consists of hunting for several animals.  And then there are a dozen different hunts that get more and more difficult.

I’m don’t play video games very often.  I’d rather spend my time doing something a bit more useful.  But I will have to admit that Cabela’s Big Game Hunter is a surprisingly fun game and a bit addictive.  If you like hunting you’re going to like this game.  I had a great time playing it and highly recommend it.

Happy Hunting!

I normally go out and start buying hunting gear just before hunting season rolls around.  That happens to be when I start thinking about it and it’s also when the products are in stores and are also on prominent display.  That’s a good time to buy hunting gear since it’s all right in front of you and you have lots to choose from.  But if you want to save some money, buying right before season might not be the best time to buy.

Buying products in the off-season is a great way to save money.   Products are seriously discounted so that they will move out to make room for products that are in-season.

Example: I just bought a 15′  2-man ladder treestand that normally sells for at least $179 for only $49!  Actually… it was such a great deal, I bought two of them.  The first response from several people was that I would then have to buy harnesses for it and they could cost $99 each.  Nope!  It came with 2 harnesses!  I’ve already put one together and it seems to be a pretty descent stand.  After next hunting season, I’ll have to do an update on how I liked hunting in it and how it’s holding up.

Anyway… This is a great example of the deals you can get when you simply buy off-season.  The dangerous part is…. now I’m excited to see what other great deals I can find now for next hunting season.  Don’t tell my husband!

Happy Hunting!

Hunting and fishing are fun, but they can also be expensive.  I’ve found that buying cheaper gear is not such a good idea.  I want to actually see through my binoculars.  I want a nice clear image, not a cloudy, slightly blurry one that can come with a cheap pair.  I think all hunting & fishing gear are like this.  I want the best… at the best price.

Cabela’s Bargain Cave is one of the places I find great deals.  The inventory is constantly changing so I can always find new things.  From ammo, game calls, tree stands and trail cams to clothing and hunting accessories.

The Bargain Cave also has fishing and camping gear, a boating section and so much more!  Check it out and check it often so that you can buy the best and save the most.
