Are you fishing with magnets or for magnets?

I think it's using rare earth magnets to "fish" for "treasure", like water based metal detecting.

>Are there laws against carrying in most state forests?
Unless it is illegal in general in your state, the open transportation of firearms is perfectly legal in national forests. There's only a handful of states that don't allow open carry and I don't think any of the ones that do care about if you carry in the forest or not. If you're doing long distance hikes and you're not in bear country, I'd recommend a compact, polymer frame pistol than a revolver....

State Parks out west allow a .22lr revolver specifically and you can't shoot it unless you have to dispatch a snake in your boot or fend off a backwoods serial killer.

I usually go to national forests and unless I go there to shoot, I just bring my .38 revolver for no particular reason, just because fuck carrying around a 10lb longarm for no reason.

I've only ever camped in state rec areas or forest campgrounds, but I want to start doing some dispersed camping in state or national forests. It seems like a nice way to get away from people and enjoy nature. I've done a little bit of research but I'm still not sure about some things. Can I just park my car on the side of a forest road and hike in to some random spot and camp for a few days? Do I have to get any special permits or pay anything? Are there any special rules about fires or firewood I should know about I live in Michigan by the way. Any tips or stories...

I suggest just calling a DNR field office/customer service center or USFS headquarters near the state/national forest you intend to camp in. Im not sure about the parking, but the rest is straight forward (print off the free permit, attach near campsite, only collect firewood from ground, stay no longer than 14 days in one spot, and be at least 1 mile from a designated trail or campground, clean up). The parking issue might depend on the situation (i.e. would you plan be parking along a major roadway or just on some shitty pull-off on a logging road). To be safe you could park...

You're going on a five day hike. You can expect rain, cold nights, and significant elevation change. There will be no deserts or associated heat extremes. There will be no shelters or resupply along the way, though there will be ground water (which needs to be purified somehow). You're hiking for recreation, not competition or survival.

How much does your pack way?

14-15kg at the start, I prefer to have a prudent amount of gear when going solo.
>>
3 kg

I'd say about 40lbs.

I'm a pretty big guy so I need a lot of food. For five days I'd need 10-12lbs of food, plus I'd want 2-3L of water on me at any point in time. So that's about 15-18lbs of consumables at the onset. Pack, bivi, tarp, sleeping bag, pad, raingear, clothes, filter, stove, and creature comforts all add up as well.

I really need to buy a lighter pack though. And I tend to pack with the expectation of colder conditions than I actually end up encountering.

I didn't used to believe in skin walkers until I went on a hunting trip with my uncle last Spring. But strange things happen in the woods at night.

We'd just settled down in his pop up tent trailer for the night, the sun now just below the horizon and the crickets chirping.

Then in the pitch black of the trailer interior I felt a strange sensation. Something spread my ass cheeks and pushed into my butt hole.

I didn't realize it was a skin walker at first, I am not an expert after all. But as the rigid, warm, pulsating ghost tendril or whatever...

If I bear wants to fuck you up, you aren't going to have any time to light flares. There isn't any sizing up or shit talk.

Carry the bear spray on your hip. Make lots of noise while traveling. If you see signs of a bear, carry the spray in your hand. If you see a bear, also immediately draw the spray. It's most effective at about 20 feet. The idea is to create a cloud of irritant that the bear will inhale and his highly sensitive nose will become hell.

Alright, /out/. You all are way more aquainted with the outdoors, so I wanted to ask you this. What in the world is this thing. I think it's a tick but I'm not certain. If you could give me the type of tick, that would be great.

definitely a tick, well fed too. if it had any diseases to transmit to something, it has done that.

Get a needle, inject it with hydogen peroxide. Watch it bubble up and burst. Hilarious.

Hey /out/,
Have you guys ever used an army surplus store to prepare for a week or two innawoods? There's one near my house and I was wondering if any of you /out/doorsmen knew if it was mostly garbage or actually a good deal.

Pic related, these are the same kind of jungle boots I got as a kid in boy scouts and they tore my feet up pretty bad

Most issued military equipment really isn't that great, especially the older stuff you'll see in surplus stores. It's designed by people who don't have to use it, and produced from the lowest quality material in the most cut-rate way possible. They just need to equip troops with the bare minimum necessary to accomplish their task, so it's often usable, but just not really the best option.

Sometimes there are great pieces of gear that get issued though, like the American woobie or the...

My recommendation would be to not buy anything made before the 90s other then tools and maybe clothes.
Ergonomics and comfort was not really a big deal in military equipment back then.

I use shit from the military all the time while /our/ but that was stuff they put out recently. Those boots in OP pic are garbage. Even the issue boots now aren't that great. My unit bought us s2v boots every year.

The old alice pack is a beast it might be worth buying. The poncho + woobie is great. If they have the goretx shells for cheap i always loved mine, but i had to give that back when i left. The acu/bdu pants are pretty comfy too i left with a boatload of those and wear them innawoods.

Sup /out/

I just went on my first adult camping trip for about a week an a half, though it was just car camping
I had to bring a lot of shit to make it work, and I obviously couldn't carry it all if I was backpacking

My question is, how do you cut back on all your shit so you can go backpacking?

Simple get rid of some of the shit. Knife, Axe, Food, Cooking gear, Gel Stove if you want, Tent, Sleeping Bad, First Aid Kit, Bear spray if you need or firearm, 1 pair of clothes suited to the weather, 3 pairs of undies and 3 pairs of socks. Any medications you need. Thats all I bring at most. ~50 Pounds

smaller, lighter, less

start with a 45L pack to limit your ability to overpack. go on 1-2 night trips to start. pay close attention to what you have that you don't use and what you don't have that you wish you had.

Ex military retard detected. 30 pounds is still too heavy, shoot for 20 to 25

I always wanted to go to camp as a kid. Mainly cause one of my favorite movies as a kid was heavyweights and it made camp look fun as fuck. I wasn't and still not fat though. Anyway, my parents never sent me cause we had a boat and went skiing in the winter and did all sorts of shit. That was how they justified not sending me cause all the shit we did as a "family". I feel they did me a disservice in life for not sending me. You learn a lot at camp and meet all sorts of people. It's a whole different...

I went to Melita Island and some kid in the same tent as me pissed himself one night. Overall it was a fun time but the pussy range instructors made us use pellet guns for the rifle shooting merit badges. I never got that far into Scouts, quit shortly after the island and decided to just learn all the stuff on my own.

Camp Councilors are basically pedophiles. I was forced to give blowjobs every summer. It was wrong but it made me the man I am, a Camp Councilor.
