As you browse the Internet or big box stores, you can’t help but notice the flood of imported LED flashlights on the market. They range in price from a few dollars to hundreds. The old saying “caveat emptor”really applies when it comes to these items. If you go cheap, you will get what you paid for.. not much. Problems common with cheapies include flimsy switches, inferior LED’s, overheating batteries, leaking batteries and recharging stations that cease to work after a short period of time. These knock-offs of major name brands may work for a few weeks but over time, they almost always fade away (no pun intended)
We were so high and at such a precarious location that I asked Clarke to take the pictures for me. Looking down the sixty degree grade on each side of our perch gave me a queasy feeling and that admission is from a guy that used to jump out of airplanes in the military.
About an hour before sunset, Dennis called on the radio and told us that the goats were moving toward the Crab. As they got closer, he told Clarke that I was to shoot the lead billy, as the next two had broken horns. Clarke pointed to a notch on the side of the Crab Claw dome and told me to find a position from which I could shot to there, as the goats would likely come right through that notch.
Many skilled hunters swear by their knife in the field.
