BaseKamp App is a Simple Solution to Draw Odds

By Mike Deming From January to June every year, I’m scouring through state released statistics on hunt success, bonus/preference point requirements and draw odds for all the western states to determine where I would like to hunt in the coming year.

When we speak to the important items in a kit, I think the container seems to be one of the most misunderstood. Lots of folks understand the need for carrying water all the time, but most of the plastic bottles on the market are a single use item. Sure, you can use them to store other things in as well, but for the most part, that is still a single use, whether you are storing water or bits of gear or food. The key to a well-rounded kit is making certain that all items within the kit are as...
