Most Interesting Miscellaneous Accessory: The Pisser 

the pisser

Last on my list of gear from the Archery Trade Association Show is the most random one I found. Once upon a time, I peed in bottles while deer hunting. Then, a revelation struck. In my opinion, human urine doesn’t spook deer. In fact, I sometimes pee in my mock scrapes to jumpstart use by deer. And it works. That said, some deer hunters still prefer to pee in a bottle. Better safe than sorry, they say. And those hunters pour one for The Pisser
