It's that time of year. You and I are likely getting less sleep due to the long hours of hunting and drives between locations. I know I'm sleep deprived. I've done several stupid stunts in the past couple of weeks and all lead back to a lack of sleep.
This past week I tried one of those energy burst drinks for the first time. Up until now I've relied on Diet Mountain Dew (sponsorship hint!), but the folks at Code Blue have a dietary supplement they call "No Limit." It's similar to the 5-Hour Energy rage, but this little shot gives you up to six hours of energy and it comes in a refreshing berry flavor.
I like it for the energy, but also for the fact they are marketing to the hunting crowd. I can't tell you how many times I could have used a burst of energy to complete a hunt or a drive to a hunting locale.
I know I could have used the night I was driving back from Cody, Wyoming, and hit a whitetail buck at 70 mph as it stood in the middle of the highway.
How did I miss seeing that one?
I also could have used it while on deer stands several times over the years.
Have you ever woke up from a quick nap only to discover the backside of a buck heading in the opposite direction?
I'll never give up my Mountain Dew fixation, but for extreme fatigue it's good to know there's a backup.
I'm going to need an energy drink to keep this pace up.
