Welp, I always knew he was probably right.

Today while listening to the MeatEater podcast they were discussing the daddy long legs as a tracking spider.

So..... you can come clean, if you have been using tracking spiders you can admit it now that it’s mainstream.

I’ve had better success with piss bugs. They don’t range as far out from your position, and that lessons the chance of them jumping a wounded deer out of its bed while you’re tracking it.

Can’t a piss bug take a deer down? Spiders can.

once watched a dung beetle work for several hours during a turkey hunt, taught me a lot about the importance of pig poop in the diverse dung community

I prefer recluses as the shock collar stays on better.

During a bloodtrail I was on last week I had to laugh when one of my buddy’s said “man everywhere there’s blood there are spiders on it.” TBM was classic and didn’t try to be funny like one of the regulars!

You can't beat a snow spider for stealth and tenacity
