    Safety glasses

    A pheasant hunter from my hometown in Minnesota lost an eye this week hunting in South Dakota. Safety glasses are pretty cheap insurance. I myself would have lost an eye several years ago due to a slob hunter who shot towards me from the road as I was hunting private land. Put them on!

    RR tracks

    Thanks to everyone who responded to my rr track question. Based on all the input I will not be hunting them. The chance of trouble is remote, but so is the chance of not wearing my seat belt. I will not chance either one.
