This new pourable attractant is berry sweet syrup made with real sugar but no unnecessary chemical fillers. Bear Trap comes in a convenient 1 gallon, pourable container, which is both easy to transport and use. The Insights Nutrition website touts “BEAR TRAP™, the irresistible sweet syrup that Draws ’em in – Keeps ’em in.”

We started several bait sites in Saskatchewan and topped them off with the Bear Trap syrup. I noticed immediately how good it smelled and could not resist sticking my finger into the syrup and sampling just a bit. It was delicious! I almost decided to hoard some to pour over ice cream, but this is bear bait, not Diane bait! I poured a small amount at the base of a pine tree near my stand, away from the bait site, just to see if this product was drawing them in or was it the combination of flavors. Time after time I witnessed bears coming into the bait, then turning and walk directly to the pine tree and lick the syrup from the base. As the bears would leave the area, they were spreading a scent trail throughout the forest with the syrup that clung to their paws, drawing more bear into the sites.

In one day of sitting on stand, I saw 11 different bears come in and sample our offering; most came in multiple times. Checking the trail camera pictures, there were new bear coming in every couple of days and still the others made sure to come in. This was fast becoming our hottest stand.

The morning of the 3rd day, I unintentionally chased a big cinnamon color phase boar off  the bait when I came into the stand. I had a good feeling he would be back for more Bear Trap. I settled into my tree stand and waited.

Just an hour and a half later, a black sow came in and I felt the cinnamon boar would be close on her heels. Not more than 30 seconds later, sure enough, here came my boar. Soon both bears settled in to eat their fill of bait and lap up more syrup off of their paws. When the proper shot was presented, I took my shot and my cinnamon boar was truly mine. Three days later, a 7’ chocolate color phase boar was taken off of the same stand and, yet again, early the following week another near 7′ cinnamon boar was also taken at the same site; 3 trophy bears in just 8 days at the same site! Bear Trap was proving its effectiveness.

The MSRP on the gallon size of Bear Trap is $11.99 and can be purchased at http://www.InSightsNutrition.com. For more information go to http://www.insightsnutrition.com/#!bear-products/c8iv.

McNett PT Pod and Ultra Compact Microfiber Towels

28 11 2014

mcnett outgo logo 2If you spend time in the woods and outdoors you will find more and more uses for the McNett Outgo microfiber towels. I used them on a recent trip, and they became my go to towels for just about everything!

The PT Pod Microfiber Towel is a compact 20” X 32”, 3.2 ounce towel that stuffs into its own 6” X 4.5” attached zippered pocket for storage. I can honestly say this is probably the only sewn in zipper pocket that I have actually been able to get the product back into and still be able to zip the pouch. Being as it is microfiber, it absorbs five times its weight in water, and dries faster than terry cloth towels.

It is also treated with an antimicrobial silver treatment to ward off odors and keep it fresh. There is a snap closure hanging loop, complete with name tag, that can be used to hang your towel for drying, or for attaching the towel to your hunting pack or even jacket. These towels come in Moss, OG Green, Khaki, Mocha and Cobalt.

Ok, so it is a towel, plus it can be used for so much more! I keep one attached to my hunting pack to be used as: a lap blanket on cool mornings, easy drying on my scope lenses and cameras in case of rain, the zipper pouch can be used to hold keys, license or other items securely, a scarf to keep your neck warm as well as being used to dry anything. The name tag makes this towel perfect for sending off to camp with kids, with good hopes of it coming back home.

The Ultra Compact Microfiber Towel comes in 2 sizes: large 30” X 50” and extra large 35” X 50”. The color selection of these towels are; Khaki, Mocha, Moss, Cobalt, OG Green and Terra Cotta. The advanced material of these towels makes it possible for them to absorb more moisture while they dry faster. These towels can absorb 5 times its weight in water and dry quickly. The antimicrobial silver treatment keeps the towels smelling fresh by warding off bacteria that cause odors. The towels come with a hanging loop, which works great for hanging out to dry or hanging in our camper. There is also a convenient zipper pouch that can be used for carrying the towel and toiletries to the shower house.

On our recent trip I packed the Ultra Compact Microfiber Towel for myself, while I took our regular terry cloth towels for my husband. During our morning walk to the shower house, everything I needed, including the towel was inside the small zippered pouch that came with the towel. My husband carried a much larger carry on type bag, to store his towels. By the end of the 3 week trip, my towels still smelled fresh, while his were getting a very distinct musty smell to them. I used one to dry my hair with, and it helped wick most of the dampness out so my hair dried quicker.

Other uses for these multipurpose towels could include; light blanket, body wrap, scarf or head wrap, padding for a seat, or even as a picnic blanket. With time and use, I am sure to find many more uses for this unique towel. If you travel and spend time in the outdoors, or are sending your child off to camp, these towels would make a great addition to you equipment. Actually any activity that you would need to shower or dry off, these towels would work wonderful for.

The MSRP of the PT Pod Microfiber Towel is $19.95 and the Ultra Compact Microfiber Towel is $24.95. Both of these products can be purchased at https://www.mcnett.com/outgo.

D2W Base Camp Holding Tank Deoderizer

28 11 2014

d2dMy husband and I recently trekked 4000 miles round trip, across the United States and Canada, to spend 3 weeks scouting and hunting for bears. We lived in our toy-hauler trailer for the duration of the trip. Since we were not staying in campgrounds along the way to utilize their dump stations, our holding tank had the potential to get very ripe, scent wise!

D2W had sent out their Base Camp Holding Tank Deodorizer + Cleaner. This treatment system treats both the black & grey water tanks. This formaldehyde free Bio-engineered Enzyme ScentPrevent technology eliminates odors, breaks down waste and is biodegradable. It comes in a convenient 16 ounce bottle which can provide up to 16 treatments of your tank. This deodorizer and cleaner is also good for portable and marine toilets. Each mL of treatment contains 67 million colony forming units.
I started the treatment process prior to our departure. It took just 4 ounces per 5 gallons at start up, and then I followed up with 2 ounces per 5 gallons for each of the next 3 weeks.

Anyone who has ever traveled in an RV or travel trailer, that did not have the holding tank treated, can attest to the fact that after a week of hot days, the smell could become unbearable. I can happily report, that never happened!
With 2 of us living in an area of just 7’ X 14’, foul odors coming from our small bathroom could have ruined the trip.

We had days where the temperatures topped out at 90+ degrees and days that the temperatures would dip down into the 30’s with snow. The D2W Guide Gear Base Camp Holding Tank Deodorizer + Cleaner worked throughout it all.

Since I was hunting and trying to stay scent free, if odors from our holding tank had invaded our trailer, the smells would have permeated my hunting gear. Trusting Dead Down Wind to keep you scent free while hunting, you can now trust them in your camper as well. Without going into graphic detail, my husband reported that everything was broke down when the tank was emptied.

The MSRP for this product is $8.99 and is proudly made In the USA. The D2W Base Camp Holding Tank Deodorizer + Cleaner is available online at http://www.deaddownwind.com/store/department/d2w-guide-gear-10009.cfm.
