>>794494 Somewhere on the east coast of new Zealand like hawkes bay or the wairarapa. Further north is warmer but rains a lot, the south island east coast is drier but colder in the winter. Look at the climate chart for Hastings on wikipedia
How could I hunt a bit in Europe, without much practise? I'm an okayish archer but I won't be making my own bow, so what are some easy traps, and how do I skin them? What are some stupid mistakes I shouldn't make?
>>794440 Well it depends on what you want to do if you're doing traps you won't be taking on big game much if not at all. One of the mistakes I made was placing traps near someone elses property (they got mad and I never saw my traps again). You also have to decide how much effort you're going to put in it. Are you going to build your traps from stuff you find in the outdoors, or are you going to buy traps? Once you have that sorted out I would go out in the area you're thinking of trapping and find game trails,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Make sure that whatever you do is legal where you do it. I live in Sweden where bowhunting is outlawed, doing so leads to big fines or some time in prison. Trapping here is fine, as long as the trap is approved by Naturvårdsverket ("ministary of nature", something like that) I think and you follow the guidelines/laws.
Can /out/ identify this tree? It seems to have fruit that distinctly smell cherry like, but i'm not sure if they're actually cherries or edible for that matter. I took this picture at Virginia Tech during July-August 2015
I want to drop everything and move to LA. Yes, it is a child's dream, but I realize the negatives and have been through a lot. Given what you guys know about survival, how could I maximize safety and efficiency in this situation? I have businesses set up I need time to work on, so I'm not going with no plan. But I need a few pointers until I can make it happen.
Shit-tier European law finally lets me keep a whole one sea bass (over 42cm) per day as of July, so me and my angling kayak want /out/'s opinion on God-tier methods for catching this most delicious of fish from the back of a kayak. Pic related, the deadly Fiiish Black Minnow which has caught me more sea bass than any other lure.
>>793576 whatever you do get something with soft soles. you don't want to be hoofing on pavement for a long time in shoes with stiff hard soles. around cities i just like running shoes because they're light, breathable and well cushioned. >>793787 i recommend not getting goretex. your feet will get hot as fuck and will always be soggy.
Picked up soaproot still in leaf: a few to make into a brush, a few to eat and the rest is being transplanted to help the health of the existing stand at a new sit that seems to be a good fit for future harvests.
>>793666 I live everyday /out/ so wearing headphones keeps me entertained while being in the oak woodlands.
I edited the picture to be much smaller but when I checked to see how it would look with just the plants it was small and low quality. Idk, didn't think that was a big deal, really just want to see people foraging/tending, the nitpicking to me is unnecessary.
>>792574 get a heel insert, they're cheap, you place them under your insole and it should take up the volume that is allowing your heel to slip (alternatively get a larger aftermarket insole like superfeet or both)
wearing thick socks or two pairs (so long as its not constrictive) could also solve the problem
Ontario 499 alternatives? I really like the durability, style and size of the knife. I've read about it in a few threads but I am afraid of using carbon steel and leather handle that will shrink in the long term. Any other 5'' blades similar to this one? >Inb4 ur penis
Hey, that looks like a cool project. It seems like it might be hard to carry around? I was thinking about trying to make pic related, how do you think that would go?
I was also considering making those penny stoves out of two beer cans, but having to take fuel around with me is giving me second thoughts. I dont really know how to add fuel to a penny stove while its burning, either, so youre screwed if it runs out half way through, right? Wood burning ones wouldnt have that problem, I guess. Any advice?
I have a 1TB external HD about the size and dimensions of a large smartphone. It contains extremely valuable stuff to me, content from my whole life on there. It's a backup HD. The thing is, I don't trust keeping it in the house, and don't have anyone else to rely on to keep it safe. But I'm living in the countryside, with fields and forests all around. So I intend on hiding the backup HD somewhere outdoors in a safe place no-one will ever find it. This shouldn't be too hard a problem, there are an infinite amount of places to hide the HD. But what are... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>797491 This bait is sex-mode, would probably catch a pike or bass, dogfish if that had them.
Mimics a dark sunfish very well. The main thing with fishing is to mimic what's naturally in the lake and predators snack on. Also, I'd recommend going with smaller than you'd think for lures. A Rapala minnow, rubber worm, some shiners/spinners, a sound bait such as a jitterbug/hoolapopper, and maybe one more shiner would do you good.
You could get by with less probably. Might want to get weedless, but my... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

What are some essential navigation tools for the novice hiker? I was thinking about buying one of those Garmin GPS's along with an analog compass, but the price was a tad steep. Would a simple compass and map be enough? What kind of compass is cheap and recommended?
>>797108 Did lots and lots of dismounted night ops in Kandahar province. Night hiking is not something I would recommend to someone without NVGs. Sure on a clear moonlit night everything is great once your eyes have adjusted to the darkness, but a little bit of cloud cover rolls in a few hours into your march and then it's stumbling around in the pitch black kilometers from anything with only a depth-perception free green-tinted bumwad tube to protect you from tripping and breaking your ass. And that's without roots... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>797027 I would suggest an alarm. I have been bugged heavily by bears there in PA. It's bad, be careful. Use your nose. You will smell tons of piss markings. If you smell death in the middle of the night, that's bear breath. Alarm + run.
Watch out for deer too, they are extra aggressive in PA.
>>796723 you better have mad skills and access to a junkyard. Also tools including a welder and cutting torch. Start with an old mobile home and use the chassis. Cut down the axle to narrow the width. remove the siding to reuse later. Good luck getting it water tight , use house wrap and bituthane under the siding.
Bear with me /out/, lets talk trespassing. What are your opinions on walking across land that is posted? What if said land is owned by a large corporation who leases out the land to farmers and hunt clubs that charge insane membership dues? If you aren't hunting, fishing, or anything that disturbed the land, merely taking in its beauty?
So I've been working on a new light weight configuration for hiking trips. My plan was to stop using my big 60L Gregory Scout backpack and instead try to use my 20L Lowe Alpine Z20.
I know 20 liters is rather minimalist for extended trips but I decided I want to give it a try. I added an image for reference on my initial setup for the essentials. One note: - I might replace the 1l water bottle on the right for the tent currently strapped on the bottom. I will use a 1,5L camel bag with water instead.
I would really appreciate some feedback... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>795916 My intention is to take on the Scottish Highlands somewhere over the next year. Norway might also be an option but I'd go nowhere near the arctic. Probably I'd travel for no longer than a few days without resupply opportunities.
>>795916 The UL 7 LW is an air inflatable sleeping mat yes, the reason I prefer it over other solutions is that it folds down to about the size of a 1 L water bottle. It's insulating properties are also the shit.
I've got two trips coming up, and the second, while being the less /out/ one of the two, is the one I need some advice for. The plan is to drive from Senegal along the coastal highway of West Africa, with time determining where the ride ends. Given the current season, things may be quite wet there, and I still need >footwear >a hammock with mosquito net and tarp

I browse /out/, /p/, /diy/, /mu/. I read book about stuff (non-fiction only). I'm constantly either making plans or organizing my thoughts for to make plans. I fap. I think about how sad I am that things have worked-out the way they have, and make plans to fix things. I miss people that I don't see or know anymore. I yearn. I watch M*A*S*H.
