    If the whole GoWild thing doesn’t work out for you, there’s always cartography

    That’s an interesting idea and question. The first reason I’m inclined to think I’d not do that is because I tend to run and gun if the first set doesn’t produce, therefore it wouldn’t be accurate for the whole time I’d be out. I will say that the friendly tone you’re setting at the beginning is a great touch. And good job not identifying the roost tree🤣👊

    I do like this idea for sure, if one is setting up and staying put. It could have saved me from hearing a bunch of cussing and our time out being screwed up by some hunter walking close by our blind way after we got set up.
    Nice, Chris

    @Lisa my nature is to assume the best of others, and that’s definitely the case here. Also I definitely knew I was staying put.

    I've slowed down my 'assuming the best of others.' I say that and laugh, but it has bit me in the backside a wee more than I prefer. Yet, respect to you for doing this at the hunting grounds. Hopefully it catches on and others will start doing it too, if they get there before you.
    The system out in MT on public land when you first arrive could easily be set up with a map and some pins to stick on spots that are being taken (when you sign in). But even with a better system, you get arrogant land management guys who manage private property butting up against public lands. They either turn their dogs loose OR will sit there in their trucks making all sorts of noise...just so you don't have success. Sorry, 😵‍💫 I got off on a tangent there. 😆🤦‍♀️
