I'm not the handy project type. Show me plans for a DIY piece of gear that requires precise measuring, cutting, and sanding, and I'll show you something that I'll gladly pay an extra $5 for at Bass Pro. For me, DIY gear must be both truly useful and truly easy to make. I know of no piece of hunting gear more worthy of that description than the coat-hanger squirrel tote. With a Leatherman (or even just a pair of needle-nosed pliers with cutters) and a wire coat hanger, you can make two of these totes in about a minute. I like to hone the straight side of my totes to a point with a file, but that step isn't absolutely necessary.
