Hylete Icon Lightweight Knee High Sock – Review

Hylete Icon Lightweight Knee High SockI’m always looking for quality stuff and looking for that “something” to give me that little extra!

So, what are compression socks? You ask…

Compression socks are specially designed, made from specialized elastic material, which increases blood circulation.

Some believe that compression socks improve their performance by increasing blood circulation in your legs. This increase in circulation improves your recovery time, which leads to better performance.

The Hylete Icon Lightweight Knee High Socks felt weird at first, as the material and thickness is reminiscent of dress sock. The sock is very comfortable and didn’t slip inside my shoes at all. I have worn the socks in Salomon, Newton, Icebug and Reebok All- Terrain shoes. [Read more…]

Natural Deer Urine Attractants Illegal in Virginia

Virginia Dept of Game & Inland FisheriesEffective July 1, 2015, it will be illegal to possess or use deer scents/lures that contain natural deer urine or other bodily fluids while taking, attempting to take, attracting, or scouting wildlife in Virginia.

Chronic wasting disease (CWD) poses a significant risk to the long-term health and stability of the Virginia white-deer populations. Since it was first found east of the Mississippi in Wisconsin in 2002, CWD has been found in a total of eight eastern states, including Virginia.  To date, the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (VDGIF) has spent over one million dollars on CWD monitoring and management efforts.  Importation bans on whole carcass and certain carcass parts (i.e., brain and spinal cord) from high-risk CWD areas (including areas or states infected with CWD or any North American enclosure intended to confine deer) are already in place in Virginia, along with a ban on interstate movement of captive deer and elk.   Reducing the use of natural deer urine attractants by prohibiting the possession or use while afield for the purposes of taking or attempting to take, attracting, or scouting will further minimize the risk of introducing CWD into a new area of Virginia.
