The advantages of taking supplements during the hunt - posted 1 month ago

There are some tried and true supplements that have been proven to work (BCAAs being one of them). My beef with companies like Wilderness Athlete and Mountain Ops is that a good number of the ingredients they use have little to no research to back them up. I have a PhD in biochemistry and couldn't get away with the types of claims they make with such little data, often just one or two sketchy publications based on mouse data or a very small number of people.

The wood burners may be dicey early season area with a fire ban in place, which seems to be the norm out west for the past couple of years. I use the Kovea Supalite stove, only 2 ounces with a 1L titanium pot. Everything including the fuel fits inside the pot, nice, tidy and light.

Utah bowhunter attacked by mountain lion - posted 1 year ago

What's that Pam? I can't hear you. Please retype your post in all caps like the last one.

On a related note, two Mt. bikers were recently attacked in WA state, one of which died from his injuries. Apparently biking in the mountain lion's home is also a no-no.
