Sometimes you just need to write it down the old-fashioned way, and Field Notes are perfect for just that. The smaller size allows it to fit in a shirt or back pocket, and these in particular feature a cherry wood veneer cover, which could double as tinder in a pinch. There are 48 pages of 3/16” graph paper between the covers, so you can plot your course, mark trailcam or game sign locations, or poorly sketch the bull elk you saw while scouting. Printed and bound in the USA, you’ll be glad you took one in the field with you. Just don’t forget a writing utensil.
