    need a good long shovel...

    ..... so I don't have to bend down as much.

    Any good suggestions? I was looking at the Lesche Ground Shark series. Anybody have any experience with these?

    One of the veterans I get to hunt with periodically, uses the 40" Ground Shark. He says that it gives him the freedom of not having to bend over near as much, and that if he lost his GS today, he'd but another one tomorrow. I bought the 36" model myself but have not used it much yet. Bending down doesn't bother me so I wish I had bought the 28" model for a lighter shovel. Be aware that the GS in really concave so cutting a neat 6" plug will be more than a challenge. I personally might have gone with a wider bladed Lesche because of the small holes the GS naturally wants to dig by design. martin

    Both Predator and Lesche are great products. I think you'd be happy with either !!
    If there's anything I hate worse than diggin' pulltabs, its missin' a gold ring.

    You can't go wrong with either
