Still hot out hurr. Gonna see if some sneks will go for buzzbaits or chatterbaits. The bass are still so slow, I'm not expecting them to hit anything not on the bottom. Hopefully the chatterbaits and buzzbaits don't work, because I will end up buying a bunch more if they do.
I carry my Taurus PT111 9mm with me at all times, either in my molder belt holster or an IWB depending on where I am and whether or not I'm near other people.
I know a lot of people aren't fans of guns while /out/, and instead prefer to carry a spray or other kind of deterrent. I carry because I have a lack of trust of other campers due to a past experience, and I'm willing to sacrifice the non-lethal option for the deterrence that a firearm has. I want to get a higher caliber weapon, more than likely a revolver,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

If though some celestial misfortune I should stumble onto a drug deal or a grow site or a meth lab or something then I'm sure as shit going to want a gun. Apart from that, it's useful for survival purposes. I don't really worry about critters at all because there... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>839182 Coyotes are a problem everywhere, it seems. The county offered "bounty rewards" on them where I was out west because they were enough of a problem, and I used to see them on a daily basis. Down here in the South they don't show their faces, but they eat small animals like cats and chickens during the night.
Mountain lions out in Tooele County of Utah are becoming a problem because the people living there have thought it a good idea to start feeding the deer. >deer head... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I don't carry I own some guns but haven't gone through with getting my CCW yet There's a place where I can get all the instruction and training done in one day and also provides free ammo which is cool
Even obese people can do 100km on a bicycle in a day
Pedal as fast as possible until your legs cramp so badly you cannot pedal, do this twice a week. This will build muscle the fastest for long term riding. You could actually probably sprint 100km with a bicycle on one of your first training sessions if you are average health.
-I bike 30-50 miles 7 days a week and go on much longer rides monthly
Sup /out/ I'm gonna go to survive in the Alaskan wilderness to survive for 40 days this spring. I'm packing bare minimum, so only a rifle, knife, fire starter, and water bottle. Any suggestions? Any other items i should consider?
>>837949 B because it looks the most fussy and steampunky.
Nothing I like more than sitting at a roadside picnic table in a national park, stroking my well oiled beard while pulling a draft of craft brew from a portable pump station as my friend films me in 4k with our Filson Wedge tent in the background and Gransfors Bruk axe conspicuously arranged in front of me.
Im in a competition with my dad: who can make the better walking stick.
I got this stick(i dont know what kind of wood).
He got a straight piece of cedar.
Pic related, the stick with the tools ive used thus far. I was thinking of sealing the ends with wax and sticking it in the garage so it can dry slowly and to prevent splitting. Then once it has seasoned i will rub it down with sandpaper low to high grit so it will be really smooth. Next i was thinking i might rub it down with linseed oil once a day for a week, then 3 times a week for 1 week, then once... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Does anybody have a good idea for a bag to put trailmix or nuts in while you're /out/ and about. I don't want to carry a big tub or jar with me because it would be nice to not have to carry empty containers bags at least collapse. A ziploc baggie works I guess but that's no fun. Is it really my only viable option?
TL;DR noob apnea tips pls Hi, /sp/ecialists, I have found a love for apnea. Freediving this year in Croatia was fun as fuck (hunting shells, seastars and stuff) and I want to train for next year as well as for shits and giggles. If there are any freedivers here, I have a couple questions I couldn't find online:
>How often should I practice my O2 and CO2 tables? Erryday? Every other day? My maximum the last time I checked was 2:02 static (it's shit, but what can ye do but train more) and I want to get better. >Is there any advice regarding fins I should know? I dived only in shoes this year and it was difficult moving around, I feel fins would give me a great advantage. What should I look at when buying fins? >Any tips on great dives around Europe?
Thank you. I want to get more in shape and this seems like a great sport.
>>837373 Ok anon, I'm not am expert or pro,, but I've been snorkeling and freediving since before I could walk so I kinda know know what's up. >>How often should I practice my O2 and CO2 tables? Erryday? Every other day? My maximum the last time I checked was 2:02 static (it's shit, but what can ye do but train more) and I want to get better. I never did anything special to train except for my technique which is a few minutes of deep breaths, complete inhale and compete exhale, pretty slow so not to hyperventilate. There is science behind this, but I can't be fucked to explain it. There are some very goot tutorials on youtube. >>Is there any advice regarding fins I should know? I dived only in shoes this year and it was difficult moving around, I feel fins would give me a great advantage. What should I look at when buying fins? Fins are a MUST for even casual diving. Human feet are shit in water and the mobility fins give you is insane compared to bare feet. There are a bunch of different finns, but you should just look for semi-stiff, pretty long, preferably without a back-strap/ just slip ons. I suggest getting a chepa pair so if the're to stiff/long/short/ narrow etc. you know what to look for. >>Any tips on great dives around Europe? Literally all of the mediterranean is the fucking bomb and it's cheap as fuck. Going to malta for a week in a month to scuba dive, and I've been to many of the countries around the mediterranean and they're seriously good. Also, where are you from? I guess ireland due to your use of "ye". Anyway, your seas are cold as fuck, and I don't know if you can dive there in anything thinner than a thick wetsuit. But Ican say for a fact that cold reefs are sick, and you shoud check them out.
I'm staying in the thread, so if you have questions just ask.
On my bucket list. The Adirondacks are probably more beautiful but Algonquin has the remoteness, is less crowded.... Still wild enough to have wolves and mountain lions. Algonquin also has a massive interconnected system of canoe routes that gives you a way to access all these wild areas by canoe.
Lady Evelyn Smoothwater park looks interesting also.
I was wondering if that soundfag from Massachusetts managed to record the epic t storms we've been recently having. I just missed the one at my house by a day. I knew I should have caught a earlier flight.
Also t storm thread. Post pics you might have and tell of your experiences.
>>836433 >soundfag from Massachusetts That's me. It pains me dearly but I have not, for various reasons. The first one (which was beautiful) happened when I was a couple towns away at a friend's house, the second one happened when it was like 98% humidity, I'd taken my mics out earlier that day and they malfunctioned horribly because of the humidity so I had to shut them down. They can be damaged permanently if it's too humid and you're running phantom power through them.

I'm in dire need of survival/apocalyptic file dumps. I'm trying to find the most extensive one I can find. I wasn't sure what board to post this in but I've tried others and no one wants to help me. If anybody could redirect me that would be awesome.
>>835408 By interference, I mean how well they respect property rights (imminent domain, regulation, etc) Also I would want to home school my future children, so laws regarding that would also be important.
My friends tell me Colorado would be a good place.
Just got my Maine trappers license and was planning to do a few Coyote sets, a bunch of culvert sets (because duke 5' traps are cheap) and MAYBE an attempt to snare a bear and spear it.
I'll probably shoot that last one depending on how much balls i can muster and how big it is. The spear i've got is 8 feet but still, i'll probably pussy out on the bear and use a handgun.
The problem is the guys who bear bait to use their hounds to track them down just set up shop in my territory, i can smell that shit half a mile down wind. Basically imagine... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>834107 If one of the hunting dogs bites your face off, oh well, it's not your land, it's owned by your road association. You are a dick just by virtue of trapping. I'm a hunter but trapping is a slow painful death for the animal. We're not living in 1700
Going entirely off grid permanently is fucking rough for one person. You can do it if you have a vehicle that you can go get supplies in. I have a friend who lives in a 200 sqft home off grid but is by no means self sufficient, takes showers at the fire station, drives 20 miles for wifi and basically does what anyone does in a city, just lives in a box outside of it. Don't get me wrong, it's a lifestyle that can certainly be enjoyed but if you're thinking of "homesteading" it, think harder about what it takes.
>>829540 I lol'd pretty hard at that. I had a groundhog do the exact same thing and I've had deer walk up on my porch and eat flowers before. Nothing is safe.
Right now I have raccoons/opossums eating my tomatoes while my electric fence is down. They've wiped out 1 bushel of tomatoes so far. I put a 6 feet tall fence around just the tomatoes, but they still climb over.
Thread dedicated to all your OWN /out/ related pictures. Google images should not be used as this is a thread for all the active outdoorsy posters on the board to show off their campouts/setups/gear and hopefully bring /out/ back from its current state ie; shitposting until a new primitive technology comes out.

I once went mountainbiking and fell forward over a root and faceplanted like 10 cm next to a big sharp rock. That thing would have hit me right between the eyes if I had been a tad to the right. Never mountainbiked carelessly after that
Just spent two weeks hiking in CO. Thunder almost every day. Just find shelter until they pass and keep going. Don't stay on the passes too long and try to do then before noon. Otherwise you shOuld be fine.
>>840264 Yeah dude, high mountain thunderstorms aren't something to fuck around with. I would plan to be making your descent down by the time the storms even start rolling in.... if not below treeline by then.
Should you find yourself caught in a storm... find a low spot in a valley (or as low as you can easily get to) and crouch down on the balls of your feet. If you're in a group, spread out 20-30ft from each other. Wait it out.
