    Anybody know of an inexpensive source for used gunny sacks for a Survival project? I can get them new at the feed 'n seed store but they are very expensive.

    Any suggestions are greatly apprecated.

    Goto a craft store and you can find jute or what I prefer a 10 yd roll of 6" burlap... good luck on your 'project'. Also don't forget some old duffle bags you can cut up to reinforce the areas of high use on your 'project'.

    Brady's Oysters in Westport, Wa. sells brand new ones.

    Last time I bought em they were 3 bucks apiece.

    Good quality. I use em for a lot of stuff.

    Wal mart sells burlap by the yard and it comes in all kinds of neat earthy, foresty colors Worked great for my special project and was much cheaper than the fabric stores in Salem
