What is the best way to get a large volume of those round stuburn hitchhikers off your clothes? I had to walk thru a patch and theyre not coming off in the wash and picking them off seems impracticle.

Buy new pants. :help:

Seriously, I've had some limited success with sticky lint removers.
Usually just end up picking them off though. :doh2:

A trick I've often used is to take my hunting knife and, while wearing the pants, run the sharp edge across the legs in a downward motion as if shaving them. That usualy removes the biggest portion of the burrs if not all of them. I imagine you could do the same thing by laying the pants over a chair or something. I usually do it while still in the field before getting in the truck to come home.

Forgot to mention is my pair of scentlok pants. I think I'll try shaving them off with a knife. Rifle season starts 12/1. If I have to pick I'll be ready by next years rifle season. Thank you for the suggestions everyone.

Would a fine tooth comb be a "safer" option?
(I haven't a clue, just throwing it out there.)

Really probably anything with an edge would work. Don't know that it realy needs to be sharp. I just use my knife because it's handy. Try diferant things and see what works best.

The edge of a new plastic ruler works pretty good for the shaving trick. A wood one works if it has that steel edge insert in it.

Wrap some duct tape around your hand sticky side out to get the little left overs the shaving trick misses.

I tried the knife edge and it worked well. Still took awhile but thats because I had to walk thru a field of hitchhikers and went from seclusion 3d to burr 3d. Sounded like quarterroy when walking and velcro when I tried to move. Not a good time. Thanks for everyones help!
