I use to make a commercial steelhead rig using the ear plugs...called "SCENT SOAKERS". I tied yarn on that hook, brought the ear plug down, and when you wet it, and squeeze out the water, you can then squeeze a bit of your favorite bait scent on it, release your squeeze pinch, and it will soak up the scent...plug helps to float the drift rig off the bottom....many a steelhead was caught on that rig.

Solar powered lights for the campsite.

A great idea. Bears love to snack on campers by candlelight. It adds such ambiance to the meal.

Cheap and effective Bear repelant that could also save your life. we all know times are hard right now do the economy $ I have allways wanted to purchase a good can of pepper spray the ones that spray up to 30ft. cost any where from $30.00 to $60.00 dollars. I found out from a source where test have been done and showed to have the same effect as pepper spray. the product is "wasp spray" shoots a straight stream and accurate and shoots up to 30ft and only cost $5.00. I hope I aint the first one to try it but if the situation presents it's self I guess it's worth a shot!

Jose..Best Griz repellent is our city limits. Stay out of bear territory. Make a deal with the bears, I'm sure they will go along with it. WE won't go in your backyard if you don't go in ours.

To save money on buying ice for your cooler refill & refreeze water & soda bottles to keep your cooler cold and have fresh cold water to drink when they start thawing out 3 or 4 2 qt bottles will keep a cooler cold for 2 or three days

to keep thorns and twigs out of slip on boots, cut
9 inches off of old jeans and fabric cement them under the knees of your work and hunting pants.
works as an apron to keep stuff out.

Go up to your browsers search bar and change the "photo=1#" to whatever photo/page you want. It starts on page two but the page numbers are -1, for example page 4 will be "photo=3#". This works throughout most of the site.

You can delay the need to clean your water filter device by prefiltering the water with a coffee filter in a funnel. It does not make it safe to drink but does remove a lot of particles that would clog your filter.

I like that idea. I will use that when I transport my gun during hunting season (in the gun case)

I have used this idea, it worked great. my rack was very sun bleached. Gave the rack two coats of stain and they came out excellent.

Additional Info

Some of the best hunting and fishing tips that appear in Field & Stream every month don't come from the editors or writers at the magazine. They come from you, the readers. We get so many good tip submissions, in fact, that it's sometimes tough to select the winners for our "Reader Tips" section. But there were never any doubts about the tips in this gallery.

If you have a good Reader Tip for the magazine, e-mail it to fsletters@bonniercorp.com, or post it on The Tip Board. If it appears in the magazine, we'll send you some great outdoor gear—free!
