Tip:

If your auger is going dull while out drilling holes and you have no files or stones nearby....

you can take your pocket knife and run the knife blade down the topside of the auger blade. Your knife blade should be in a position like a scraper. Like you were trying to scrape off the edge. One or two strokes will sharpen the auger enough for a few more holes.
