I am fascinated by Wyoming for some reason. I want to do a week long road trip out there in the spring. Does anybody know anything about it out there? Where are the best spots for /out/?

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
I wanted to stay a night in laramie and then do a day hike in Medicine Bow forest/mountains. Is this is a tight spot?

I keep hearing about The Grand Tetons. Are Grizzlies a major concern if I go hiking there? Also, is it better than checking out maroon bells in Aspen, CO?
Fun fact: Wyoming is the tenth largest state but has the least number of people (<600,000)

what's the best oil or other treatment for them?

I use obenaufs lp for winter rain/ boots that will get muddy at the beginning of the rainy season. Obenaufs leather protectant for a quick coat on top of it after washing them off.
Mink Oil Or Brown Kiwi shoe polish and scrub the absolute fuck out of it.

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.

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. >:]

So there's about a week left of hunting season (bow hunting) where I live. As I didn't see a hunting thread in the catalog, I figured I'd start one up.

I'm a sort of rookie hunter, been going inna woods for 3-4 seasons (whitetail,bow) and have yet to get anything. So I'd love some advice, if any would be so kind

ITT we can also share experiences, stories, pictures, tips and tricks, hunting wisdom and any other hunting related things. Doesn't have to be deer, and doesn't have to be bowhunting

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...

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...

Dont shoot a deer with a .30-378.

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...

Check out wranglerstar on youtube. The guy is a toolphile especially when it comes to carpentry and felling trees.
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.
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...

How you handle vision correction while /out/?

I'm badly nearsighted, I wear glasses at my desk job and contacts when I'm doing something more active.

That works fine for day trips but if I wanted to spend a few days camping, what's the best approach? Being blind in the middle of the woods is a horrifying thought.

wear your glassed? get a strap for them if youre that much of a pussy.
>what's the best approach?

wear a blindfold for a year and heighten your other senses
Just put one of those little necklace type lanyards that attach to each arm of your frames so they don't fall off your face and break.

Might look nerdy/goofy but it's better than bringing all the shit to put your contacts in and out when /out/ while avoiding getting shit in your eye

The bushcraft mind set is that you carry the tools you need and not much else. What would happen if your tarp / tent fucked up? Its a more long term ideology.

Well you'll need a permanent resident visa, and those aren't really easy for Americans to get. Especially if you don't have any professional skills and don't intend to have a job.

So you have no skills of knowledge of any kind, and want to move to what is possibly the most remote aRea of the planet and expect somehow to survive?

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
