    I try to go out and watch game to learn how to hunt them. Also clean up shooting lanes and work on stands.

    I would definitely put about 15-20ft of rope to use if you need to drag an animal very far. I used one on the hog I killed, tied a loop for my arm a slung on my shoulder to pull out 200 yds to the road.

    When I was 14 I sewed some old black tie-down straps to go over the buttstock of my .22LR bolt action and hold extra magazines. It was pretty cool and lasted for several years.

    Nope. I found it in a drawer when I was cleaning up to move. Probably threw it away. It really wasn't all that pretty but it sure was functional and it didn't cost me a dime.

    Buy the braided boot laces, put it around the call, slide the laces ends through each slit, slide it down to the call to keep it tight, put the laces ends together and clinch knot em

    Yep. Make smaller ones to go one the big one w other leather loops and small pieces of boot lace. Key rings and boot laces, or any other thing you can find of the like will work as well.

    Is there a way that I could use an old key lanyard? I know I could just clip one call on the hook but how could I put additional droppers on it?

    Put key rings on the loop w strings hanging off from them. Just make sure your calls stay seperated so you don't get busted.

    Just hang them all from the hook at the bottom at different lengths?
