Those heavy tubes are a great investment.

I use the Moose heavy tubes and 18 psi front and 15 rear in the rocks. I have not had any trouble other than desert thorns which can take out both tires if you run upon them. I have never heard of that scenario yet. 2 flats in one day with proper air pressure and heavy duty tubes! Wow. Lucky you got your riding in and got help on the first one. At least you have little statistical chance of this happening to you again.

I have only ever had one flat, rear, and it took me a while to figure it out....it was muddy as h&%*ç and the bike was sliding around all over the place.... the flat didn't help with the handling at all, but being a stupid newbie at the time........!!!! As I recall it cut my riding day short about 15 mins into my ride. I didnt have a spare on me or at home and hadnt been riding for a few weeks!

I don't buy it...hunters are on our side more or less. They use the same trails as we do. They ride their ATV's on the 2-track and they hike the single-track, not to mention the negative impact it would have on game using these trails. He's trying to keep game in the areas he hunts not push them out due to injured hooves/feet. Also, he'd pierce his own feet and those of other hunters in his party or those of his dogs if he hunts with them. Doesn't make sense, I think you're barking up the wrong tree.
