Lots of new folks here these days and I thought it would be nice to start a thread on tips and tricks you've learned for hunting in Alaska. What I'm talking about are little shortcuts and tips you may have learned from native elders, or other Alaskans; things that help you on your hunt.
I'll start with a little trick I learned a while back to help stabilize a tent in high winds. Take about six inches of bungee cord and tie-wrap it to itself into a loop through the tiedowns on your tent. Secure your parachute cord for tiedowns through this bungee, and the bungee gives just a little during high winds, which keeps the rainfly from ripping.
How about your ideas?
