NA­TURE CALLED AND RU­INED MY HUNT

Outdoor Life - - NO EXCUSES -

I have noth­ing but con­tempt for some­one who would end a morn­ing’s hunt with a trip back to camp be­cause they are afraid to crap in the leaves. My dad put up with a lot of mis­takes when I was young and build­ing my bedrock of hunting skills. But when it came to poop­ing in the woods, he would ac­cept noth­ing short of 100 per­cent mas­tery. I’m thank­ful for that be­cause sev­eral times now in my hunting ca­reer, I’ve climbed out of my stand, walked a hun­dred yards down­wind to an­swer na­ture’s call, and then set­tled right back in to shoot a deer shortly after. If ever you need to take a dump in the woods, there are only three rules to know: Al­ways bring a lit­tle more toi­let pa­per than you think you’ll need. Al­ways bring your gun. Avoid gar­ments with hoods. —W.B.
