That’s why I always have a roll of TP in a zip lock bag that I keep in my backpack that I take to the stand.

I've lost socks in the woods next to a bar, Uvalde roadside brush after a golden corral breakfast buffet, and many times after visiting the taco truck and not having warp speed on my vehicle to find a suitable throne. Never hunting though. I'm always prepared.

Hence the zip lock baggie!!


In a pinch, socks will do. As long as they arenít ankle socks. Or dress socks. Or arenít already black or brown!!

I lost a pair of gloves last weekend. I usually have TP or unscented baby wipes, but I failed miserably at preparation this deer season.

When I was in college. Me and a good buddy were at the lease. We went to town and found a bar. Left at closing time to head back to the lease. Headed to the blind to "hunt"
I woke up well after day light and went to go pick him up. When I got to him. The urge hit me and I just spun and took care of business. I was not far from the jeep and asked him to toss me the AWP (*** wiping Paper) he laughed and go quite. He came walking around and had the AWP on a stick and a camera in the other hand.
God I feel bad for the person that developed that role. Poor person is probably sill in therapy

That's why I swore off Friday night chili...it was inevitable the Saturday morning hunt would be cut short with a trot off into the woods to blow mud.

I always carry TP to the stand just in case

That's why you wear long socks, if you have to use them just cut the top off . Bam new pair of ankle socks.

Brother in law was in the stand with my 5 year old nephew when the urge hit. He had TP, but it got funny when he made it back to the stand. Nephew looks him square in the eye and says you pooped in the grass.... like a dog??

X2 they are individually packaged and work great in the woods, on the water or just as a last pass at work.

Available at walmart in the toilet paper area in a black box. Keep a couple in your pocket.

Back when everyone wore long socks one of the guys we were hunting with used one of his socks. Held it with one hand in front and one in back and wiped with a back and forth motion like he was polishing his shoes. He didn't know we could see him until we started laughing.
