Question for British anons, I know you are supposed to bin that knife but are you still allowed to own an /out/knife? How do your basic camp craft, like say you have to cut some paracord do you use a sharp rock? Or take it into town to an approved cordage cutter?
Anyone have any experiences camping in NJ during the off season? My buddies and I want to hike the BATONA for a little bit during the beginning of January.
Now, it seems like this dude https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0xEZ4oSMfQ is able to just kinda camp where ever he needs to, but we just went back there for a walk last night and ran into a ranger who wouldn't believe we weren't up to shenanigans. Are we gonna be able to camp for free if we move each night?
It's not just a money thing, it's not all that expensive, but I don't want... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've never hiked the batona before, but I used to camp and 4wheel out there a bit.
About 2 years ago most of the campsites went to reserveamerica, which is a horrible company and they charge a ton of money. Also, the campsites are really not located conveniently for a hike. I'd say pack light and plan to stealth it out, people do it and get away. There are plenty of rangers up there though, so just be aware of that. I wouldn't set up camp until dusk.
I've camped there in December at the paid sites, and it can get cold, but not too... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Pic related, Delaware river 1 mile north of where the AT crosses over.
Hello /out/, I am really new to weapons and specially hunting, but I'm still really interested, but I find it really hard to find good tutorials on hunting (anything from hares to deer). Most tutorials are on more advanced shit like what type of scent killer to use, whether you should smear yourself in Internet deer shit or not, or what kind of camera to buy. I just want to know the bare basics. Speak to me like I'm retarded. I just got off the truck, what's the first thing I should do?
>>652476 First you need to pick what type of hunting you want to do. There is scrape hunting, stalk hunting, and stand hunting and many other varieties of techniques. Each has their own pro's and cons.
>absolutely necessary that you work to make money for someone else, and collect a small percentage of that so that you can live
Do you even have a skill? If you are like most people you produce less at work than you get paid. You are a freeloader in life and you come here wanting us to do work for you, for free. You are a lowly parasite, your plan is unachievable because you can never scrape together $10,000 to get started on your failure. Your life is already over. Happy holidays faggot!
>>652515 I do have a skill. I can scrap together 10,000 dollars. Absolutely necessary was a stretch. >>652518 That's not really what I'm worried about; there are probably plenty of non profits and volunteering things I could do that would bring me fulfillment. I would like to try Americorp at some point in my life.
I just want to learn all that stuff and realize the dream at some point.
Happy to announce I'll soon be spending the winter alone in the woods with just my backpack in the cascade range of Oregon. Going to have a great time living the easy life. Wake up, warm up, get food, warm up, get food, warm up get food, sleep, repeat.
Good luck, anon. Make sure you bring books pertaining to what plants are edible or you'll fuck yourself like that one kid. Also, a small wildlife book with good details will point you in the right direction for where to look when hunting.
Find a nest. Do some research on the birds mentality though. often times keeping them past a fledgling makes them demented. My suggestion is to let it go after adolescence and it will stay in your area and bring you cool shit.
>>652311 This is a worthy goal. The nests are huge , you just need to work harder at finding one. They will use abandoned nests so if you find one , keep checking it. You could also help repair one that is damaged and easy for you to get to. It will not go unused for long.
all things aside, i usually run into girls who claim to like the "outdoors" and "adventure" but when I ask what they've actually done, it's always something really mundane like going to a coffee shop in the AM hours
>>652310 Probably the clothes and the whole 'woman are stronk' thing. But this is a huge generalisation since I know many women who are very athletic and fitter than me who know their shit and hate normie hikers as well.
>>652277 If it says "tactical" or "survival" in the item description there's usually a better alternative that costs less.
If you're buying a first bow and are just getting into archery, you need to find out if you're patient enough to learn traditional archery over a few years or want to get something with sights. I have a Fred Bear Montana Longbow and love it, but you can buy a decent rifle/scope combination for less money.
The bow in your post has some weak links where it hinges.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Okay /out/ I'm looking to go to Guadalupe peak today and I'm in need of a hiking buddy since all my friends are basement dwellers. I'm a fairly skilled outdoorsman with quite a bit of hiking/climbing expirience. Who's up for it?

>>652183 I found some on eBay for pretty cheap, would this be advisable to buy it from there or should I get it from a Gander Mountain/Academy instead? I don't believe it would matter, but I am relatively new to equipment knowledge.
I'm going /out/ on a week long camping trip again for new years.
And I've always struggled to know what food to even take every time. Sometimes its been easy with cold meats for the first day or two, but then its tinned tomatoes and carrots for the rest.
This year its a pretty stationary camping trip.
My problem is that because of the extreme heats for most of it, there will likely be state-wide fire bans, so cooking shit is going to be totally out of the question, which sucks because I'd just gotten a new camp stove for christmas.
