    Maybe something a little tacky/gummy? Rubber cement is a thought but I would think it would rub off quickly. Small patch of gorilla glue? Or you could scoff the buckle a little. Not so much that...

    Just a reminder. Whiteblaze still has a user agreement which has pretty much stayed the same for about 13 years now, perhaps longer even. Bringing up previous moderation generally breaks

    Yeah, trekking poles weren't really much of a thing for hikers until about 2000-2005, at least not in the States. You got snide comments for using them, guess it goes both ways. I traveled around...

    Not much of anything really, just a strawman argument and deflection from the hunter's responsibility to know what he was shooting at. Hiker may also be a hunter who knows right?
