  1. I am 72 yoa just to give you a time frame. When I was a boy my dad and I were camped about 45 miles northwest of Gerlach Nevada and my dad made a large loop in his catch rope and put it around our bedrolls, when I ask why he said to keep the Rattlers out. He went on to tell me when he was a young man working for the Fly Ranch he was camped in the mountians he woke up with a Rattle Snake in his bed roll....He said he did not know if the rope worked but never had a snake in his bed since he started putting the rope around the bedrolls..............Idaho Al

  7. Hello All, As a retired Law Enforcment Officer and former Sheriff I have been involved in numerious search/rescue and recovery mission, mostly lost hikers or hunters and Mountian Climbers. Most are reported at night. I will get the logistic started and get a Command Post set up but I would never send my people out on a search or Mt. rescue in the dark...People with broken legs ect. will be of no help...The safety of your people is first priority-Always............Its hard for the family of the person that is missing to understand. Also The chances of completing you mission is so much gr

  9. G'day, I have two speakers, one from Doc's and one radio shack, I added a on/off switch on both. They work well alone or as a dual system, cant tell the difference between the two other than the name and they cost about the same. The on/off switch is a must in my opnion. I also use Doc's screamer system and that is GREAT not having a cord to the battery in the harness..........Idaho Al

  15. G'day All, As a retired Law Enforcment officer ( City Officer then Deputy Sheriff and then Sheriff in rural Idaho) I am appauled at this type of behavior mostly by the actions of the Deputy Sheriff, I have worked with federal officers from variuos agencys and had a hard time considering them real law enforcment. I have personaly seen and had contact with Law Enforcment Officers that were so parinoid that it made for a scarey situation. I may be the one who gets hauled off to jail in someone tries to seize my eqipment when a photo works just as well in most cases.........
