Folks who think state- or federally owned hunting lands are a waste of time had better rethink their bias.

Chris Brazzell of Louisiana has taken the lead in the race for this year’s Golden Laurel Citation by arrowing a new world record in the BTR’s Perfect category. And he did it while bowhunting public ground in Ohio.

The bodacious whitetail carries a massive mainframe 5x5 rack with two small stickers, only one of which is scoreable. The antlers top the previous world record set in 2000 by Geoff Lester – also a 10-pointer – by an inch. The Lester Buck was arrowed in Ogle County, Ill.

Stocking Stuffers

Sometimes you just can’t take the boy out of the man, I guess.

While these two new-for-2010 items sound perfectly practical and probably work as advertised, they reduce me to my inner Beavis.

Rutt WipesProtect Your Assets

Among the first cyber press releases to hit my inbox this year was for Rutt Wipes, rolls of blaze orange toilet paper marketed as a “hunter-safe” alternative to ordinary TP that could be mistaken for a deer’s white tail. The label warns: “Don’t get shot with your pants down!”

You can buy two of the “biodegradable, non-toxic and soothing” rolls -- the packaging emblazoned with a cartoon illustration of a man dropping trou, a roll of white TP in hand, as a bullet zings past and a buck snickers in the bushes -- for a mere $10.

ThermajockMembers Only

When I got the e-mail touting Thermajock from a PR agency, the sender went to great lengths to persuade me not to junk it. “Someone really did invent this,” it began. And so I took a peek, looking for the punchline.

There was no punch, but there was a man pouch. Ergonomically designed, too. Made of fleece in the good ol’ US of A. Think of it as one of those little purple Crown Royal bags with a drawstring, perfect for keeping a man’s “most sensitive area” warm. It’s touted as being way better than a sock, which is what inspired the creators to invent it.

Who cares about public land.If you shot it with your bow and left the gun at home, you got my respect. Great job. That's the way to collect bones. "From a dedicated bow hunter in West Virginia"
