Hello /out/, I need your help. I hope I don't break any boardrules/culture with this post.

I am completly new to going camping in the woods. I camped a few times with my dad at official camping spots but I never went into the woods on my own to spend a few nights there.

Can you recommend me some stuff (and brands) that I will need to spend a few nights in the woods somewhat comfortable.

Hunting food is out of question because I life in germany. Tents are a no go aswell, because that would break the law.

I hope you can give me some tips/pointers so I can become a sc/out/ aswell.

>Tents are a no go aswell, because that would break the law
What kind of shelter are you allowed to have then?

The only real differences between 1 night and 3 are your food, water, and toiletry requirements. Depending on length you may need a filter, or you can pack in all your water. If you are walking anywhere I would bring some sort of water purification just in case something goes wrong. A sawyer, life straw, or iodine tablets can fulfill this. For long trips where I know I'm going to filter a lot of water I prefer a pump style with an adapter to fill my bladder through the drinking tube instead of removing it from my pack.

Sleeping bag (+pad if sleeping on ground)
Folding chair with arms and cup holder
flask+favorite spirit
dining set- fork, knife, bowl, and cup are all you NEED
cookset- portable stove, one small pot and coffee pot if you so desire
toilet paper, soap, toothbrush+paste, first aid kit
A cigar
A book
Flashlight (LED headlamp preferable for reading)
Fire making materials (ferro rod, lighter, tinder, firestarters, etc)
A knife
Extra rope
Extra socks and underwear
Thanks for the input.
when i just build a roof over me I won't get punished as hard as having a full tent build up.
Can you recommend any sleeping bags + pads?

Will picrelated actually work?

Probably just going to smother & smoulder. One way to find out though..
What is that shit?
If the base fire is strong enough, yeah.

You're better off with a bonfire though; that one looks like a lot of work or a lot of luck. And getting fresh wood to the right spots would be a bitch.

Preferred lantern?
38 replies and 16 images submitted. Click here to view.
EverReady or Coast headlamp.
The one you pictured.

I have many fond memories sitting around an old Coleman propane lantern. Sure it's not the greatest thing, but damn if it doesn't make me sentimental.
This too interests me. I prefer a headlamp or flashlight while alone but my GF has been nagging me to take her and her kid camping and I'm thinking that a nice little LED lantern might be just the thing I need.

If you're hunting and not just camo-fagging, then the mountains of Montana Idaho and Washington are all pretty much the same. Darker greens work well. Most of the paintballers have better luck on treed arenas with marine camo than anything.

If you are camo-fagging, then I believe realtree with a very large blaze orange logo is what's in this fall.

hey /out/

im going hunting soon for the first time. nothing major just some cotton tail. however ive never killed anything before and it kind of makes me feel ill thinking about it. i know its hypocritical because i eat meat but i cant help it.

how do i get over this feeling? kill lots of shit?

You don't. You either go with it and pull the trigger and come to terms with the fact that you'll have a dead animal on your hands, or decide that you're better off shooting paper targets.

Your call.
You can't help feeling like a faggot because you have been living that life in this rotten world. Blast those fuckers until there is nothing left. It's cathartic
If you enjoy killing something then there is something wrong with you. I have been hunting for 14yrs now and I never like killing. I enjoy the rest immensely but not the actual killing the critter part. If you need to hunt then do so. If you do not then don't. Guns are just as much if not more fun to use at targets any ways. I like shooting steel targets all day long far more than shooting once on a 3 day long hunt

/out/ how do you completely remove yourself from people for a wilderness camping trip? I'm thinking Alaska or upper Michigan, but I want to be away from people COMPLETELY.

I don't want to stray onto private property or something, I just want to go to where no people are and camp out on a river; fish for some trout or something. Sure you can go on camping trails but they are still full of people and you have to deal with potential encounters with the law.

tl;dr give me your advice on getting away from everyone completely. Any stories are appreciated.

national forests, its called dispersed camping. ive never had a problem, you drive in deep until you are on dirt path forest roads, park the car and start hiking in. get a motor vehicle use map from the particular forests website, a fishing license, and plan out a spot. some parts will have larger spaces between forest roads so aim for those. keep in mind there are some forests specific rules and all forests dont want your camp 100-400 feet from a water.
also you can generally legally stay in one spot for something like 14 days, then you must at least move your camp a mile away, and you cant go back and forth between two, but you could probly be ok touring the forest like that
How far are you willing to drive and walk?

Are binoculars worth spending more than $200?

65 replies and 8 images submitted. Click here to view.
Yes, a good pair of binos will last you basically forever. If you're actually gonna use them, it's a good investment.
As long as you actually use them, good pair of nocks will last basically forever and if you take care of them they're worth their value.
literally the same deal for 75$ nikons.

paying 200+ on binos is for shit like special prisims that remove chromatic abbertition which you really wont notice that much anyway

Here are my (few) photos from the last fishing trip i did. This is the São Francisco river in Brazil. This bioma is called ''Caatinga'' (i means white forest in native Tupi language) and it's a unique brazilian biome, characterized by the semi-arid climate with long drought and small bush trees who rapidly gains foliage when it rains, a big and pretty explosion of life. Nowadays, we've being facing a terrible 5 years drought..

You could get a higher body count than 9/11 off of one hedge, yet they post them around my University like it's nothing.

Yew can eat the berries, just spit the pit.

So I want to put together a pack to be used for hiking, fishing, and day camping (this is not a bug out bag or any survivalist stuff, just for day trips). I just need it to hold the basics (stuff like food and clothing will be decided trip by trip), so I started to throw a list together of stuff to put in it and I wanted a second opinion on stuff I nay or may not need.
I live in a forested area of southern ontario and i tour up north above the great lakes at least twice a year.

So far i have;

I made a cinnamon based mosquito repellent using alcohol as the medium. I gotta say not only does it work but it leaves the little shits so dizzy you can just pick them up. I imagine what's happening is that when the mosquito spits to apply the histamine, the layer of cinnamon essence left on the skin mixes with the spit and evaporates right on their faces. That's good and all but the solution evaporates too fast when trying to apply it, and it wears off too soon as well. Is there a way to make this a little bit more... oily? Using actual oil as the medium proved to...

You could try diluting cinnamon essential oil in water and spraying that.
I believe peppermint oil repels them too... or I could be thinking of different bugs.
Also, pine, lemon eucalyptus, and basil oils work as well.
I use DEET, everything else I've used has failed to work.

Greetings comrades,

This January I'm taking the Fish and Wildlife conservation 2 year course, up in Canada, Ontario. After, I intend to take Natural Resources and the Law. Why? I have this unfaltering duty inside of me to protect mother nature from poachers, and direct and indirect human impact. The strongest argument I have; is this planet of ours, so stupendously vast in its eco systems, terrains, and life, it seems almost foolish to want to negatively impact it, when there is not a single planet that we know of , that is diverse as this one. / besides the paperwork...

I love nature just as much as any other /out/doorsmen but seriously, quit with your SJW fascist stance, you only deter people from wanting to protect it.

Anyone /sweden/ here? I'm planning a trip to Stockholm next year and I'm looking for some trails to walk (partially). Currently looking at Sörmlandsleden, Upplandsleden or Roslagsleden. All 3 are relatively close to Stockholm I think?

Also, is it worth going all the way north just to do Kungsleden?

I'll be going July/August/September by the way.
