DUH,


Oops!! Got a little confused on the bullet thing:o

But I was in the right neck of the woods...

A rear rabbit ear'd bag already filled with micro beads would be a good thing though.

However, nothing is perfect. Thus the two small flat bags of different thicknesses to compensate for a little up and down......



It doesn't make economic sense to send a couple of these little things down there unless they were piggy backed on something else.

Roy,

Appreciate your efforts. I'll just get the commercial bag you suggest and try and find the beads here I quess ?? For hunting I would not want a bag with a wood bottom piece, and I would prefer a synthetic bag rather than leather as it could get wet all the time.

Whats your best quess ??

Cheers

DUH

That bag isn't what I would suggest. It was just the first one that google truned up.

I's suggest the lightest leather that is findable (if that's a word). Here's a link to one that's only 0.3 lbs.

Getting a synthetic waterproof one is gonna be a real hunt. I just spray the heck out of my with waterproofing stuff. The beanie bags I just let get wet as they dry out rapidly.

Another example (I haven't tried it) but use their front bags.
