Re: Allergies

With benadryl i suffer for 24 hours with lingering yuck for another day. Looks like field dressing gloves past the elbow, respirat...

Re: Thoughts on wrapping the stirrup in paracord?+checkingSc

I have wrapped mine all mine. though it does not eliminate the vibration completely, there is a noticeable improvement, which was an accidental improvement. My original intentions was to put something on the stirrup to protect it from getting beat up. if you do wrap it, make sure you have vane clear...
