The Prairie Dog Camp Shovel is Lighter Than Yours

For digging cat-holes while camping and other off-grid scooping jobs, the compact & ultralight Prairie Dog camp shovel is a rugged minimalist tool designed for backpackers. At .7 grams, it weighs the same as a Bic lighter & about 1/3 the weight of a standard plastic trowel. It is made of aerospace aluminum and features resealable nylon cable ties for attaching it to a stick or hiking pole to add leverage for digging your little poo pit.
