What's your unconventional hunting accessory?

I actually have 2. I use a life preserver cushion as my tree stand cushion. 2" thick. Much better than what comes with the tree stand. I use an old binocular case tied to the side of my tree stand to keep my accessories in, range finder, cell phone, snack.

Binocular case is a good tip, will save a lot of dropped things. Baking soda in boots and clothes for scent control and screw in hangers from lowes or home depot. ( private property of course )

I carry a thing I made. Its a piece of 1/4 inch plywood 2"X3", it has 2 3/0 fish hooks on it with the sharp ends cut off. One screwed one each side of the wood. I put a wire loop at the top of it so I can hook my hoist rope to it. If I drop something out of my stand (Climber) I hook it on my rope and fish what ever I dropped back up. One day in my haste to get up the tree I forgot to hook my bow to the hoist line. In less than a minute I hooked the bow and had it in the stand. The guys at camp call me the mad inventor.

What is it they say.....necessity is the mother of invention? Perfect example.

You took mine! I was going to say office chair for a blind seat.

I have a regular "possibles bag" for my flints and powder and balls and what not, it hangs on my left side. But I also have a much larger leather bag with a flap that hangs on my right side for sandwiches, water bottle, gloves and others things. It started its life as a woman's purse. I got it at a garage sale years ago, put a couple coats of mink oil on it and it is about perfect. I hate back packs for hunting. To much motion and noise getting them on and off to reach something and zippers are noisy and unreliable. I can lift the flap on this "purse" bag and see down into it and get what i want. No noise no fuss. As for the purse, what the heck any woman would need a purse that big for is beyond me. Unless maybe she was a blackpowder long hunter like myself.

Listen, or your tongue will make you deaf.

Here is a picture of my unconventional hunting accessories.

I bicycled in 1.09 miles then killed an adult doe with the crossbow. It took me a half hour to get the deer out to a game lands fire line where I could get the deer on a cart. Then it took me about fifteen minutes to pull the cart out to the game lands road where my bike was stashed. Once I got the cart attached to the bike I had 1.09 miles to get it out to my truck. Normally not an easy task on bare ground.

It took me a total of ten minutes to bicycle the deer the 1.09 miles out to my truck. Sure beats dragging or pulling the cart by hand.
