I just recieved the Cabela's 2004 Waterfowl catalog. As I was flipping through I got to thinking about how much crap there is out there for hunters to buy. I remember hunting over wooden decoys with an old potato sack as camo when I was a kid. Now they have decoys that's flap, swim, dive, and dance the salsa. Gone are the decoys of a duck just sitting there. Now they all have moods and facial expressions. No more sitting on a stump, now there's portable padded chairs with built in ass warmers. There's even a layout recliner that will turn your head into a goose (I'm NOT kidding). 9 pages of duck calls! Of course you need some camo socks to go with your camo long johns even though they'll be covered by your camo pants and camo shirt which are underneath your camo jacket and camo waders. With the ultra realistic patterns out there nowadays nature is having a hard time making cat tails look real enough to match the clothes. I'm not here to pass judgement as I too have been mesmorized by the modern gadgets at times. It does make you think though. How good are men today at hunting, compared to years gone by, if they need all this stuff?
