So i've been spending a lot of time looking through cabelas magazines lately wondering what to buy for this fall. With all the new gear on the market, what is one thing you've bought that turned into something you absolutely love and won't go into the field without.

One thing i love is a sling for my shotgun while duckhunting. it is so useful to throw your sling on your shoulder and have your gun by you at all times and the sling makes that super easy.

I second the sling idea, but the one I like for my hunting is the Primos Bow sling. It has 2 molded cups for the cams on the bow and a shock-corded type sheet for around your strings. Nice for over the shoulder or across the back while hiking.

I also got a Cabelas headlamp last year for christmas and love it. No more holding my flashlight in my teeth while I try to find something in my bag. The LED's are brighter than the spot and keep the batteries much longer.

another vote for the sling on the shotgun. range finders are awsome (don't have one yet!!) I will have to try the bow sling. I think that my vote would be a pack of some sort for hunting. last year i got a cheap camo backpack ($5 walmart special) and i cary all my stuff in it and i can fit lots of clothes for when it is colder. It does seem kind of big at times though.

A headlamp. I bought the $10 one at Walmart and love it, frees up your hands for carrying your bow and other gear. When bowhunting is done, it goes in my icefishing gear, great for that walk off the ice in the dark.

How does a bow sling work? Do you take it off when you're in the tree?

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
