- While camping is an extremely popular pastime—U.S. campers logged a collective 587.2 million camping days during 2017 alone—many people who would probably like camping avoid it because of the perceived discomforts they might face. Some people claim they don’t like the hard ground, bad food, dirt and grime, nighttime wildlife sounds, and other things that they’ve either heard about or maybe experienced on a single trip where necessary amenities were lacking. Go prepared, though, and the uncomfortable aspects of camping can at least be somewhat mitigated.
- The old saying “Don’t spoil your bird dog” continues to get further and further out of vogue. Whereas some owners once thought “spoiling” a dog led to less intensity and reduced ability in the field, many now believe just the opposite and choose to spend lots of time afield with their furry companions. That often means letting them ride along in the truck when running errands or going to the store. Of course, a dirty dog can mean a dirty problem in the truck—easily solved by a quality seat cover.
- Fishing rod holders act as an extra arm for anglers and help catch more fish. Basic rod holders have a base that mounts onto a boat. Features to look for include a flat mount and a holder that swivels. Anglers who fish several rods at once should look to a rod holder that accommodates several rods, which keeps all rods in one spot but allow the angler to spread baits over a wide area. Clamp-mount rod holders don’t require drilling and can be used on any boat that has a place to accommodate the clamp arms. Kayak anglers are well served by track-mount rod holders, because the holder can be moved to various places along the track, which often is necessary when current or wind changes.
