    What's the maintenance of a sock vs a full body? I guess then we ask what kind of sock and full body..

    To me there's more maintenance in a sock when hunting a fixed spread than a full body...if it rains then freezes you have to shake everyone or they wont sit properly..snows, they fill up, gotta shake em out..

    You are correct, grew up with the snake and his brother Kent. Dale was his Grandfather. The stories Dale could tell would give you chills.

    The last name of the guy running the show.

    I'm not saying to what extreme they'd take it, but I can assure you that no one who knows that family would dare to help themselves...and out here EVERYONE knows of that family.

    There are people in this world who would steal from anyone, real dirtballs...but even those kind of guys know it's not worth the price that would have to be paid if they were ever found out.

    Fear goes a long way.

    Vegas? Shoot you must be forgetting about the most corrupt city ever. Chicago!!!! But back on the topic. The spread is impressive and supposedly they are makein a second spread the same size. I have no dog in the fight and can't say with certainty but I also have heard alot of rumors of the group stretching the truth on kill numbers and band harvest. Also also been told by guys who hunted the spread that payed or free hunt doesn't matter if its a single bird or very small group forget about being the one to shoot it. To me if a guy has payed $300 then you should be the first to get the shootin.
