>>636024 This, Arcteryx makes (or used to) some pretty good leather gloves. Cost me an arm and a leg even on clearance, but they've lasted over 5 years with no visible wear. Granted, I live in a temperate rainforest so the temperature rarely dips below -15°C, but they're nice and toasty, apparently good to -30.

I'd love to go hunting but I'll never hold a gun in this shitty fucking country because I got really fucking drunk at age 17 and was trying to take a shortcut to my house over traintracks proceeded to fall head first on to the fucking rail and when I woke up I was at the police station getting questioned on why I was attempting to kill myself.

This Lawsuit Says Animal Planet Is Doing Some Really Insane Things
The beleaguered network's latest debacle involves some seriously shady antics in the woods.
A Kentucky farmer has accused Animal Planet of setting a fire, damming a creek, chopping down trees, and illegally trespassing and building structures on his property during the production of the reality TV show Call of the Wildman.

But behind the scenes, J.D. Long, a 54-year-old resident of the rural hamlet of Liberty, Kentucky, says the show's producers came onto his approximately 49-acre property after his sister, who lives there, explicitly told them they weren't welcome. Long was furious when his sister told him that the team had built the tree house at least partly out of lumber he says they logged on his land.
(One of Long's lawyers, Andrew Trimble, says he saw multiple tree stumps at the site during a survey—consistent,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
But the most bizarre part of the incident, Long says, came in the middle of the night some months after filming had wrapped up—around November 20, 2014—when he woke to the sound of machinery. "My sister jumped out of bed, she was scared to death," he said. "It made this whizzing that sounded like the whole neighborhood was going to blow up." He called 911.
It turned out the whizzing was coming from a crane, Long said, which had arrived under the cover of darkness to tear down the tree... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Animal Planet and Sharp Entertainment—the New York-based production company that makes the show—did not respond to repeat attempts to seek an interview for this article. Neither did attorneys Rebecca Schafer and Emily Newman, from the Louisville legal firm representing the bulk of the defendants. Schafer and Newman filed documents asking the court to dismiss the case in May and denied all the central allegations. The judge has yet to rule on that request.
In March, Long filed a suit against Animal Planet... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Hey mate ausfag snake catcher here, like you said our snake can fuck you up but they luckily have tiny fangs compared to other snakes around the world. Good jeans or work pants will be thick enough. Plus the added bonus that our snakes will all try and get the fuck away from you before they bite you.
Hang your food properly Urinate and poop properly Keep weapons nearby Make sure to have decent preception score Have proper watch set up with group travelling Pray to RNGuses that you dont roll like shit and that your DM isn't out to get you
Has anyone been lost in the woods? I've been hiking, camping and hunting far far off trails my whole adult/teenage life and even as a child. I can't say I've ever considered myself lost. I've definately been 10 miles away from where I should have been, but I never feel lost in the woods. I just keep on walking until I correct my mistake. So, who has been outright lost before, for whatever they consider lost? Obviously I am too stubborn to say I've been lost.
Like you, I have never been lost. Because even if I have ended up not knowing exactly where I am, I always have a pretty good idea of my GENERAL location. Usually it is just a matter of taking a wrong trail that went someplace different than where I wanted. As long as you keep direction and major landmarks in mind, you shouldn't ever get lost.
I was up in Alaska working as a guide. Every minute of spare time we could afford was spent hiking with my mentor, a fellow guide. Eventually we were in Denali. He said I'd be doing an initiation of sorts.
He let me take my pack, a tent, and food for a few days. No compass. No phone. No gun. And, as it turned out, the wrong map.
I took the backpacker park bus all the way out to Eielsen visitor center, made sure my nalgene was filled, and set out. I was supposed to "walk as far as I can, spend the night, and be back the next... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>635726 Of course, I'd then have to hitchhike back to our hotel.
But bend after bend my soul was crushed. The only progress I seemed to make was deeper into the harsh lunar landscape. It was eerie as fuck, and I couldn't help but think that I wasn't supposed to be there, for some odd reason.
I began to realize the negativity was all psychological. I'd take a break, have something to drink and a bite to eat, and set right off again. Moving was the only way to combat the slippery slide into panic.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
