So who else is enjoying the heat in the south East?

Sc here and thought I would share what a friend in dnr just told me regarding the south East

Due to the almost non existent winter, deer aren't dying out like normal and dnr is really freaking out internally (at least in sc)

most plants think it's already spring and are already flowering, meaning there will be a huge glut of food for many deer right now and noaa suggests the south East won't really get a winter at all this season meaning many animals will be severely over populated.

I'm enjoying it a bit, but it didn't get cold enough here in NC for the deer to go into their ruts. Only a few people in my area got a deer, tthe biggest one was a 6 point

I plan on going on my first thru hike in April. I'm going to Ocala National Forest in Florida with a few buddies for 10 days. Anyone have experience with thru hiking?

I've been solo hiking camping for a few years so I have basic experience. As far as gear, what should I additionally bring? Do i bother to wash my clothes? etc

By thru hiking, do you mean hiking? Or is it more different?
Hiking from one trailhead to another. Just requires more planning with regard to food and transportation.
>10 days
I didn't know Ocala nf was that big

So the other thread about metal detecting is garbage, so I'm making a better one. My friend owns a Bounty Hunter Time Ranger, and the other day we went out near a dry pond and an old cattle ranch.

Found a brooch with a psychedelic design on the front, a couple pennies and a quarter, part of a hydraulic ram cylinder, and a 1901-1914 era Winchester shotgun shell.

I actually searched without a metal detector, mostly for mushrooms and trash, and found a tin of air rifle pellets(still good) 4 pennies, a lapel pin with a lotus on it, and some Witches Butter fungus.

OP here, I haven't actually tried magnet fishing yet, but I imagine the best places to start are fishing piers, boat launches and along bridges. You could also try along dams where fishing is popular, I'm sure you could pull up a couple spoon lures and tacklebox knives.

Today I searched a spot that may have been an old pump house or pharmacy, I'm really not sure. All that is left is some steel cables, scattered brick and a shitton on old medicine bottles, vials and test tubes all piled up in a...

Hey /out/,

In the beginning of May I want to take a 2-week trip to Utah to spend a couple days in the 5 national parks there (Arches, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon, & Zion).

My plan is to drive there and camp somewhere near the parks, then drive in each day and do some hiking before driving out and finding a new campsite.

I planned a couple days at each park, plus a couple 'free days' in case I want to stay somewhere a little longer.

I have all the car-camping gear, clothing, and so on. Plan to eat normal camping-style food,...

Thanks, this is exactly the info I was looking for, I appreciate it!

When you say that rural people will not hesitate to rob me, does that mean like at gunpoint and steal all my money or plunder my camp/break my car windows when I'm not around?

I'm tired of laboring for someone else to survive

What books do you recommend to learn how to live off the fat of the land? preferably with as little commercial consumption as possible (ie. expensive camping gear and weaponry)

Not talking about going off the grid here, just want the piece of mind that I can keep myself alive without external support

Just start your own business. Get rich enough to buy a modest plot of land, turn the land into farmable acreage. Start a farm, get a wife with big birthing hips and big soft titties.
Have a bunch of kids.
Have land to go /out/.
Have a hot wife.
All these retards who think flipping burgers is "laboring for others" and harder than scavenging the woods in December for nuts and berries

Is it a retarded idea to go out in wilderness (mostly a forest and lake area) for a few days? I'm currently stressed out by some stuff and want to go somewhere calm. I've been learning bushcraft for a few years on and off, so I think I will survive.

What do you want to remind me of? Are there any precautions? Also, how do I avoid getting robbed/assaulted while sleeping?

If you want to destress, go to a lale with hella steak, a canoe, and some pot or beer.

Also, its winter, so pack for warmth. Its always colder than you think itll be.
No. Everyone here greatly exaggerates dangers while out to make their lives seem more exciting. You'll be fine.
>Also, how do I avoid getting robbed/assaulted while sleeping?

You don't. It happens to everyone so just be mentally prepared. Or alternatively you could do the raping and robbing. Your choice

For all of us southernfags, dont you guys think spring is coming way too early?

I live in georgia, its not even half way through winter yet as of december, and the leaves are already coming back to the trees. The birds are fucking back. THE FUCKING BIRDS

It's no coincidence that the winters have gotten shorter approaching the election year. The NWO is using weather altering technology in order to get people to buy into global warming and shift the political spectrum further left.
Native Georgian here, our winters dont come until the new year, has been like that for years now, nothing new.

Hello I tried posting this thread on /diy/ but perhaps this board is more appropriate.

I want to buy a book on vegetable/herb/fruit growing since its something I want to get into. Ideally it should be one huge tome full of everything I need but one introductory book + one advanced seems reasonable too.

I have tried googling some recommendations but have not found anything that I like, most books seem to be full of pictures but little useful information. Can anyone suggest anything?

Also nothing like that exists per se. Also, most books are pushing only 1 type of gardening technique. It is better to get your info from a great range of books or simply from online. It needs to be tailored to your vegetables, climate/environment, and scale.
The Encyclopedia of Country Living.
You can find a .pdf of John Seymour's The complete book of self-sufficiency.

It's a little old fashioned but an interesting read, and covers all the basis so you have a good working knowledge of the whole system and the interplay between different elements.

Wanna buy a gun that's a good all around bush and hunting gun on a budget. I've been looking at the Remington 700 ADL in 30-06, though i've heard the action is kind of sloppy. Any suggestions? Also post your bush guns!

no one has ever said grab nugget go innawoods

You know the right choice op. Or a mares leg, can't shill for those enough.
What do you plan on hunting OP? 30-06 is pretty big for most game, unless you're around moose and brown bear, then it's useful.

It does kind of limit your options for smaller game, but the 30-06 is a tried and tested caliber that is very popular, easy to find ammo, and relatively affordable to shoot.

Personally I'm a fan of Savage rifles. They just shoot great. For a bush gun, you want it to be durable, so I'd get a stainless barrel model. Personally I like .308 since ammo is affordable,...

I do but it breaks a lot.

You have to protect the rubber from the cold and from rapid re-heating.

I carry a number of spare bands anyway, despite these precautions, because I use flat bands with quite severe tapers to get the speed I want. Shortens the life length dramatically though.
How different are slingshots? Does it just come down to comfort and material weight, or do things like the fork spread, tine direction and height affect accuracy?

Could a top-of-the-line GoreTex cycling jacket also be used as a three-season backpacking softshell/waterproof jacket? What would be the pros and cons?
8 replies and 2 images submitted. Click here to view.
Can you fit your insulation below it? Is it durable enough (three layer laminate, top fabric strength)? Is it long enough to cover your ass if you so wish? Will you not miss the pockets or the hood?
It'll work but most bike jackets have shitty pockets and are cut short in front (and tbqh, these days a lot are too short in back to be ideal for cycling). You might be better off cycling in a backpacking jacket, as long as it has decent vents and a double zipper.

The main benefit of my bike jacket over my hiking jacket is it rolls up smaller in my bag when I'm not wearing it.
Your main concern will be your pack belt and shoulder straps rubbing away at the goretex. My macpac coat has pertex reenforcements.
