HAMMER!!!! Always a HAMMER!..lol


When you earnestly believe you can compensate for a lack of skill by doubling your efforts, there's no end to what you can't do.

Leatherman Surge hands down. I would struggle in life without it.

Side cutters. I use wire for my drowners. I can drive a stake with a rock or a club, but I can't cut wire with my teeth. My multi tool gets a workout, I use it at least once every day. Other than that, one of the most versatile tools I use is vicegrips.


It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, but only 3 for a proper trigger squeeze.

On the trapline, a heavy 3 pound hammer. Without that I wouldn't be able to get in hardly any stakes with all this limestone.

Left to right:
A set of 9" Kleins
A 10" Klein Screwdriver
A 6" fixed blade knife

If I had to pick one, give me the Kleins, If I can get the cutters around it, I can get it cut.



If it can't be done with these three tools it dosn't need done right now.

On the trapline it's my stick(heavy shovel handle) with a hook in one end. I use it to find traps underwater, set a conibear off if I'm going to move it, test water depth, and if I shove it in the bank vertically it gives me something to grip onto to help pull myself up.


Check the archives, it's probably there!

Hammer would probably be of most use, seeings that I have to hammer in stakes a lot of the time.
