Tetons are breathtaking Yellowstone is fantastic if you go in the back country and stay the fuck away from tourists Laramie is also known as Laradise for a reason Bighorn Mountains are amazing Devils Tower is a sight to see and climb Thermopolis has some nice hot springs
If you use mink oil remember how qt minks are. Also, when I was looking for a picture I saw some mink in a cage. Probably in a Chinese farm. He appeared to be blind in both eyes but half his face looked rotten, like a zombie.
Live in Southern Nevada, wanting to get into light trail walking/hiking and working my way up as part of fitness and rehabilitation. I was wondering if anyone had any good ideas on where to go, as well as what I might need to bring, etc.
I MYOG quite a bit. Almost always cheaper, always fit my needs better than commercial gear. Pic is my roll-top alcohol stove (coca-cola bottle). I've also done a cocoon hammock, hammock straps, several bike bags and I am currently dehydrating and vacuum-packing meals. Next up is Tyvek reflex rain pants and poncho. Will probably make a bivvy with this as well as a backup for my SOL Escape bivvy.
I made my own Jecklin Disk for field recording. Commerically sold ones cost three-hunnred dollars or more, and not only are they not fucking worth anything close to that, they also seem to have a number of limitations and design flaws. It's fucking ridiculous. Anyway, mine's not especially pretty looking but it sounds as beautiful as an adolescent orgasm. >:]
>>668916 Bowhunting is very demanding, and many people who try it aren't skilled enough marksmen to consistently make clean kills. If you're not confident you can kill cleanly, don't shoot. I assume you're in the states, so I have to ask why you don't hunt with a firearm of some sort to start out. Basic shotguns and muzzleloaders can be had for less than $200 and aren't hard to shoot accurately within their effective ranges.
The best advice I can offer is to scout hard before the season opens... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>671158 btw I killed a massive ten-point with one side broken off this afternoon. It's a crying shame he wasn't intact but I guess the antlers will have what they call character.
My best hunting story is the time my father shot a hog through the lungs with a .270 and it ran a half mile from where he shot it and died right in front of me. Crazy coincidence and he might not have found it otherwise because the blood trail was so spotty.
I've mostly hunted the American south and Namibia, so come at me... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Here in early spring, i plan on heading off to Dillingham AK. i have some land up there and am planning on developing it. I have to hike in about 10 miles and dont care about hiking in some tools, i plan on cutting some timber for a cabin, plus cutting a quad trail to the access road. I dont want to hike in gas and chainsaws so i plan on getting a misery whip, some axes, some garden tools. What will hold up to a summer of work? Should i get a pack animal to bring in my tools, or hump it in solo. I have a tent and a sleeping sack. plus, enough family to support me should i start... Comment too long.

>>668883 Well, regarding saws and axes- depending on how you're building your cabin, I'd suggest going the chainsaw and gas route. 10 miles is pretty easy (assuming it's not hard...), and you can get a ton more work done with a chainsaw compared to a crosscut saw.
I wouldn't bring in an animal unless you can get one for peanuts, have a water source, and a bunch of forage.
>>668883 Legit find a used ATV.. Fuck animals and shit they are still more expensive than gas. Vet bills, feed, boarding. Kay?
Now you got an atv go ahead and use a chainsaw. An good sized felling axe. Some wedges. A 3lb hammer with a long handle. And a claw hammer of your choice. Some big ass nails, lets be reasonable here you never done this before and your log joints are gonna be pretty shit without the help of big ass nails. A big carpenters square. A level. A plumbob. Maybe a small crosscut saw for cutting timbers... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>wool is overrated, particularly heavy coats >hunting deer from a blind is for fags, double faggotry if you're using bait or feeders >bushcraft gear for "survival" stupid when your tools weigh more than the things you intend to make with them (bringing an axe, knife and saw to make a shelter instead of a tent/tarp/hammock) >softshells are silly
>taking dogs on longer (multiple day) hikes is for wolfaboo faggots who want to act cool. >taking survival food on trips shorter than 3 days is retarded. >bringing a fuck huge bag of supplies with you for longer trips is still fucking retarded and means you're too stupid to survive, stay in your city environment pleb. >bringing more than 3 multi purpose knifes. >camping pillow and mattresses

Alright /b/ros. Usually a lurker, but need some advice. I currently live in Colorado, USA, and I'm considering moving to bumfuck nowhere Siberia so I can live off the grid (kinda). I know nothing about Russia or living off the grid, but really would like to get the fuck outta dodge. I would like to boat there, as you can't take a lot of the shit I will be taking on a plane. So I was going to just stick to the coast on the way up there. >pros and cons of Russia >shit I'll definitely need (price is not the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>668781 Lots of good trails and parks around Lake Simcoe, Southeast Georgian Bay, and into Muskoka. The GTA was great back in the day for blasting groundhogs in fields but now it's all pure shit even in aspects not related to the great /out/doors.
Sup guys, how is it going? So I love /out/doors but most of the time I only hike/camp and do some MTB and even though I'm reasonably fit I would like to improve my arms and back size and strength. What activities should I start looking for? My first thought was climbing but despite rock climber usually having a nice strong upper they don't seem to get bigger in size.
Tl;dr /out/doors activities to build up strength and muscle in the arms and back
