    This compass will be a learning curve for me, as I'm used to simple flat basic compasses. Looking forward to learning new skills though.

    And a HUGE SHOUT OUT to CAMMENGA for the blistering fast shipping speed!!! :)

    Mail Call from our very own @Sam Wilson / GEAR CONVOY ( https://gearconvoy.com/ )

    2 x Blaze Orange BUSHsteels , plus a service kit (spare O rings, FerroRod, loctite, set screw and wrench, plus storage bag. Thank You SAM!!!! One of these tools is going to @Twoody88 !

    I had to laugh when I picked up the parcel from Canada Post - CBSA (Canada Borders Service Agency AKA CUSTOMS ) classified the ferro rods as "electrical" and dinged me for $40 CAD Customs Fees :D:p:D:p:D:p:D

    electrical :D

    I'm not complaining though - CBSA let my Platatac Jungle Ruck thru inspection with no fees.

    :)

    Just got the jg5 today. Why I waited I don't know but love it. Been reading up on Sears and finding out he lived near my ancestors. So I ordered this book on Kindle as well. Not crazy about the looks of the hump on the knife but I'm sure it has its purpose. Probably going to make a left handed leather sheath for it, keep it OG style and possibly new scales, but from wood or bone. 20220625_164908.jpg Screenshot_20220625-171947_Kindle.jpg

    finally got this finished up and ready to go for a first outing today. HPG Recon Belt with Buttpack, pouch, and two nalgene holders. Bottle holders aren’t HPG though because I liked the ability to close the top.

    Driving force to try this was I didn’t really like having a pack on my back during bow hunting but wanted the ability to carry a lot of stuff like a backpack. The light green thing is a rolled up pack to haul meat out with. Our hunting species aren’t huge so a 30 L pack will carry out most animals once deboned. So far I like it. Problem is this picture is the only shot I got today haha.

    I was thinking about that because the buttpack was a little off balanced since it’s pretty big. Thanks for the suggestion I’m going to try the one on my Junction f I can’t order one right away.
