Sometimes we aren't much on nuance, but there's usually plenty of advice and a wealth of experience. Here's a sampling of the PS advice and sick humor available here:I'm not new to shooting but need to learn some of the nuances of varmint hunting.
YEP! What Mikey just said! (Especially the WATER/LIQUID advice. I recall a session among the pasture poodles on a 90º day when I got dehydrated before I realized it and experienced a brush with heat stroke. That was the ONLY time I experienced a really good outcome from a couple cans of Budweiser!Sometimes we aren't much on nuance, but there's usually plenty of advice and a wealth of experience. Here's a sampling of the PS advice and sick humor available here:
- Don't EVER get behind on your fluids. It's hot and dry up there and heat exhaustion will ruin a trip real quick.
- If you're camping in either tent or trailer, take 3 times the rope you think you'll need, take duct tape, and make some custom tent/awning stakes out of rebar 18-24 inches long. No, I'm not kidding.
- Try to go soon after the pups are born, which is mid-May in the area we visit just south of Murdo. After being shot for a while, the dogs get more skittish and stay down longer before popping back up. They're still there, but the wait is longer.
- For best aerial action, hold low on the abdomen, which should propel the pups and smaller dogs skyward like an Atlas rocket!
