When you have to go #2 while hunting??? What do ya'll do? Got into an argument over this last weekend.

Go. Be sure to keep your firearm within easy reach though!

I scratch out a hole in the dirt (the size of the whole is directly related to how long I waited before deciding that it wasn't going to keep until I got back to the truck) and do my thing! When done I cover it up like a cat and then spray some cover scent on it, then get back to work.

Been an awful lotta years since I was not able to hold it until I got back to camp.

Depends on how many chicken wings, sausages and steak I ate the night before. I also try to go at camp before I leave.

On a normal morning (didn't gluttonize myself the previous night), I have no problem making it back to camp for an afternoon session.

However, every once in a while, I have to go in the woods.

Either way, I always go prepared with some striking paper in my back pocket. I just try and make it couple hundred yards away from where I am hunting before I go.

Thats what they make long sleeve t-shirts for..... emergencies:eek:

Had my first emergency in 18 years of hunting last Thursday. Most of the time I can make it back to the house. Benefit of hunting close to home.

I know what I had for dinner the night before.......


If I know I'm gonna have to "GO"......Then I come prepared.......If not......I just hold on till I can get to the "throne"!!!!!! :bounce:

You would be amazed at how much a rumbling tummy full of last night's chili sounds like an old buck grunting!

I try to hold on until I can't hold on any more!

i couldnt ruin a mornin or night hunt with poopin in my stand. my luck wind would blow in my face. so i prarrie dog it!(just know what prarrie dogs do-in the hole-out the hole- back in the hole)

Squeeze tight until I have a turtle head poking !! I can usually wait 'til I get home that evenining though. If Im camping, put it off as long as humanly possible. Then after I go I think to myself " that wasn't so bad, why did I suffer all day long for nothing?"

I get up about 2 hours before 1st light, drink about 1 1/2 pots of coffee, take care of my biddness, then go hunting ;)

I really like that quite time in the morning before everyone starts to get up.

10-25-2004, 11:29 AM
when you gotta go, you gotta go. I try to get at least 100 yards from my stand and find a hole that I might can cover up when done.

10-25-2004, 12:29 PM
That waiting til the last minute can be veeeeerrrryyyy dangerous. Especially if you are in a climber. The action of coming down a tree in a portable can sure lower your "squeeze factor" and create a very messy situation! :speechles :speechles

Not that i speak from experience or nothing but last nights baked beans can become a real problem! :eek: :eek:

I do like Jeff does. Coffee works wonders for getting things started and cleaned out before you begin the hunt. But be careful. Deer can smell coffee a mile away!

10-25-2004, 12:47 PM
i kinda do what jeff and randy do. got a regular routine, 2-3 cups of coffee when i get up and a couple "sit-downs" before leaving the trailer and i'm cleaned out...but i take paper just in case....

10-25-2004, 12:56 PM
You shouldn't ever put "that" off ; carry some paper with you and cover it.

10-25-2004, 01:09 PM
If I gotta go I gotta go....

10-25-2004, 02:27 PM
For those that hold it.....now we know why you're full of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:)

10-25-2004, 03:59 PM
Both. I always come prepared, but don't want to ruin a hunt. I try and wait it out, but when it gets to be too much, I go wherever I can make it. Always have your weapon close by, though.

10-25-2004, 08:56 PM
I try to always be prepared, but luckily haven't had an emergency in a long time. Two years ago my Dad and I were out in Wyoming hunting mule deer( 2 yrs ago this week) it was cold, around zero, 10 inches of snow on the ground opening morning. You know just a brutal day for a middle ga boy! Anyway my Dad says he gets back into the area we had scouted and set up his blind and the "mood hits" Well at first he tried to "dismiss it" and concentrate on hunting but the "urges" were overwhleming. SO he decides there ain't but one thing to do; take care of business. Do you know how many layers of clothes us middle ga boys had on? He said the bushes and branches looked like a clearance sale at Bass Pro Shop! Needless to say he was highly motivated to finish.

Tee it high and let it fly!!!! ;)

While taking care of business, better listen for other hunters, be on guard if you hear, "John, load the gun! I heard a buck snort!"

10-26-2004, 08:31 AM
Never know when that possum wants to poke his nose out. I'm always prepared. :eek:

10-26-2004, 11:13 AM
That's one of life's simple pleasures. Me and the bears do it in the woods.

10-26-2004, 05:38 PM
Let'er rip tater chips.. :D

10-26-2004, 06:55 PM
Several of the guys and me included just get down and let her rip. I do like several others posting this one and make a small hole then cover it. Only problem with that is if I dont hide it I'll step in it shonuff. :eek: :o :D

10-26-2004, 07:57 PM
Is that all you could come up with to ask?

10-26-2004, 08:27 PM
i use the "bush doctrine"--take a pre-emptive, you know, before heading to the stand just in case. don't want to take any chances. find a nice, quiet spot near my jeep and take care of business! ahh, i feel better already!

Since having my Gall Bladder removed a few years back, "holding it" just isn't an option for me anymore. I'd forget my bullets or my arrows before I'd forget my TP.

I used to be able to "pinch up tight", but since I had my gall bladder taken out, there is no more of that. When it's time to go, it's time to go.

I come with plenty of paperwork and drink a cup of coffee well before my morning hunt to clean out the plumbing before my hunt. Hopefully.

nah, just kidding.

One flusher....pray "oh cheeks please stay together"

Two flusher.....git-ir-done asap. however far I make it is how far I make it.

Three flusher.....leave the climber in the tree and slide down my pull rope.
