There are a couple of creative and inventive people in Jacksonville, Texas. Not only do they run a successful outdoorsman business but they have come up with a neat invention that can assist hunters when they need to "do their business" in the woods. When you see the invention, you will definitely have one of those "Why didn't I think of that?" moments. The invention is called the Krapp Strapp (great name) and the invention became so popular that the producers of Shark Tank invited the business owners on the show to make a pitch for investment.
