Unless you have your toilet paper. I can see it now we will all have our t.p. strung up on our sternum stap in a few years. That is until someone invents a despincer for our t.p. You all can say you saw it here first??????

*Patent pending

Also good for those tough mornings

Obviously a blood trailer wannabe. Sitka Tracking Toilet Paper (STTP) is far superior. The only downside is it can't be used for actual butt wiping, because of impregnated enzymes that repel wild tracking spiders. Sitka will be announcing in-house bred Sitka Tracking Spiders (STS) that will compliment the STTP. Then you'll be able to order a STS-STTP combo pack.

But you'll still need ordinary tp for your butt.

But with the optifade camo the tracking spiders will be invisible unless you have the binary coated mirrored tactical glasses integrated into a flat brim hat, that will show the spiders less camo. Just one more way to keep your secret spot secret.

From: Jaquomo

Good that the guy also has a shoulder sheath for his tactical knife. You know, in case the buck jumps up and engages in hoof-to-hand combat.

You laugh all you want but twice I had to quick draw my Havalon to dispatch game.

Havalons are not a good choice for this

From: Scrappy
30-Oct-19
Definitely would not want to be in a havalon knife fight against hooves.

From: midwest
30-Oct-19
Don't bring a Havalon to a hoof fight, Grubby.

From: t-roy
30-Oct-19
Sounds kinda like a little different twist to the “bear country “ thread.

Deer spray or Havalon? Any pics of that quick draw Havalon holster, Grubby?

From: APauls
30-Oct-19
I've also been in the havalon knife fight which quickly turned to regular hand to hand and then to drowning. Best bet don't even start with the Havalon.

From: Scrappy
30-Oct-19
Sounds like we need a thread about what animals have you fought.

From: t-roy

Good thing that you could fall back on your prior muskrat brawling experience, APauls!

I won a hand to wing fight with a wounded gobbler. In case you are wondering, their rubbery necks easily aborb throat punches.

From: Grubby
30-Oct-19
I think I can take out pretty near anything with a good fixed blade.

Havalon is the rage of the knife world

From: Jaquomo
30-Oct-19
I have at least 12 fixed blades, including 3 customs. So far this year I've skinned and quartered two elk and a pronghorn with the Havalon, using only two blades. Love it.

Once had a terrible mano a mano fight with a big angry gobbler. At one point he was on top of me beating with his wings, pecking, and trying to spur me. I had him by the neck but couldn't get enough leverage to break it until I did a reverse and rolled him underneath me. Vicious animals, those birds.

From: SBH

Glad to hear I'm not the only one who brought a knife to that fight!

From: Surfbow
30-Oct-19
Maybe that guy has a terrible case of IBS, shame on all of you for making fun of him...

From: Ben
30-Oct-19
Jaq, That is hilarious. I'm still giggling picturing that gobbler on top of you , then you getting on top of him!

From: Will

This thread is hysterical. I use TP to mark blood trails, it's great and degrades fast... But this is completely awesome regardless!

From: APauls
30-Oct-19
We should also start another thread with the over under on how many animals have tried to Get Jaq under them

30-Oct-19
I've also finished an animal with a Havalon. It sure seems puny when faced with violence.

From: Woods Walker

I heard there's going to be a Cheryl Crow tracking TP coming our. The pieces will only be about the size of your thumbnail......

From: Grubby
30-Oct-19
The problem with the Havalon is blade retention, you better make the first thrust count because there’s a real good chance the second thrust will be sans blade....

From: DoorKnob
30-Oct-19
If you're (not your) bleeding from there you need to see a proctologist.

From: elkstabber
31-Oct-19
Fortunately the only deer-knife fight I was in was many years ago. If it happened recently I'd have to dump my pack, and root through my game bags to reach my Havalon. By then I'd be thoroughly stomped.

But in case of a sudden attack of the Mountain House Squirts I always have tp available for quick draw. Most importantly, I don't wear a belt. Honestly, it's more important to be able to quick draw your pants down. The tp can wait.

From: Grubby
31-Oct-19
So no bibs?

With a handle like elk stabber I’d expect a better story than stabbing stomach pains

From: rallison
31-Oct-19
Jaq...a buddy had a similar turkey experience years ago. He was wearing a down vest and those spurs absolutely shredded it. It was snowing down like a Wisconsin blizzard! He came out relatively unscathed and a bit smarter...lol.

From: elkstabber
31-Oct-19
Grubby: definitely no bibs after eating Mountain House. Bibs would be a liability. Everybody is affected differently. No stabbing pains at all for me - more like a sudden unavoidable explosion. The only way to prevent a big mess is to immediately drop the pants. Hence, no belt.

Haha! Definitely not that solid Jaquomo. The Mountain House Squirts would be more like somebody dropped a bucket of really muddy water. Or, maybe more like spilling chocolate milk.

Oh man I wish my mountain house poops were soft and watery mine are like having a baby then your o ring blows out.

I can just imagine Lou hunched up in the isle at petsmart grunting that one out

Someone above mentioned the guys knife in the photo. Obviously it's there in case you run short of tp and have to cut your skivvies off to finish the job.

From: Grubby

Been there

Who needs TP ? Always some American Beautyberry bushes where I hunt. A handful of these and you’re good to go. Therapeutic too ! ;-)

Actually, paper towels and baby wipes have a permanent spot in my fanny pack, but on certain occasions the Beautyberry leaves have saved my ass, or my drawers at least.

01-Nov-19
The knife in that position.....seems strange, and more than slightly awkward to draw.

From: t-roy

Drycreek.......Velvetleaf (buttonweed) leaves work pretty good here in Iowa. Unfortunately, they’re pretty scarce after the first frost.

Forgot to add, if you’re using the used tp for blood tracking, it sticks very well to trees or brush, etc...

Had a "situation" last weekend. Improvised as all the leaves are dried and gone. Used moss for the first time ever. I think I have a new winner. It's like Mother Nature's bidet. Very soothing.

According to Cheryl Crow we only need one sheet, destroying the planet by using more than one...

Just try that when you are on doxycycline treatment for a fall tick bite. Yeah, you have to get out of the stand a lot, if the cramps don't kill you first..
