>>789906 I fully admit the Chinese are dumb animals less worthy than rats but I don't think a language/literacy barrier was the issue here. I think it was entirely foolhardiness, recklessness, and hairbrained and temerarious impulsiveness.

We finally got some cloudy and rainy weather down here as the remnants of that tropical storm have been hanging around. Haven't had a ton of time to go fishing, but the few min I have been at the lake, I have been having even worse luck than when it is sunny all day. I thought the weather would help but I guess not. Or I'm just fishing the wrong spots with the wrong lures.
Went striper fishing this morning. It was windy as hell and cold ad balls. Got a few though. I'm going out to plum island again Friday night. Hopefully the bite will be better. I got a new lucky strike needle fish to try out. $20 for one lure, shit better produce.
>>789240 The few times I have tried to fish with bait instead of lures the past couple years, I end up walking away with another rod that has a lure on it and get nervous my rod is gonna fly into the water.
I do need to hit some catfish or carp one of these days. I see so many huge carp and I'm sure these FL lakes have some nice catfish.
How bad of an idea would it be for me to take my first backpacking trip alone? I don't really have anyone I could go with, my girlfriend isn't exactly the outdoorsy type and plus she can't afford to buy a bunch of backpacking gear, and my friends certainly wouldn't be interested either I'd do a one or two night trip and take plenty of precautions, but how dangerous would this be?
Have you done you research? My advice is this; Know the area you're going to go, and tell at least one person from home. Tell them the time frames you are planning. Stick to your own time frames. Don't be afraid to call the trip. And of course have all your gear and a knowledge of LNT. It's always dangerous, keep risk mgmt in mind.
I run cheap-ish safety glasses. Z87.1 approved when I need that, nice to know they're held to some degree of safety when I'm on snow or moto and there's chunks of ice, snow, dirt, rocks etc being hurled at my face. Inexpensive to replace when they get scratched or if I lose them.
Also, fuck air travel. >Flight's delayed an hour! >the $15 sandwich was good, but not $15 good.

Yes, that is your face when because that face in the pic is barely visible through the pound of makeup, dyed hair, and contact lenses. No wonder you give a fuck about how everyone else looks. You can't stand how you look.
Hey guys, I've been thinking of getting into knife hunting. What kind of gear should I be looking to get? Any advice for a first time knife hunter? Should I practice on smaller animals and then move up to bigger and more dangerous ones?
>>787167 doable i have seen it with and without dogs too. without dog you can still practice endurance hunting. simply run the prey to exhaustion overpower it and stab it in the heart. with dogs pretty much the same but you run less.
Honestly the backyard is where you should practice all your skills and test new gear. If a piece of gear fails, no big you're home and have access to shit to fix it, there is no better place to get familiar with your gear. Look at ol' Shug, he hangs hammocks in his backyard to test new ways to hang all the time. So, yeah do it as often as you can, it will only make you more comfortable with your skills and gear.

Let me make this clear to you autistic bastards that have never actually been outside
1) You don't need to have the best knife on the planet, nor will you ever be able to select such a knife 2) The weight of your backpack is completely irrelevant if it isn't difficult to carry 3) It is totally fine to have a fire in the woods, just don't leave it unattended 4) Leave no trace is good but not LITERAL, it doesn't mean footsteps you autistic fucks it means candy bar wrappers and beer cans 5)You don't NEED to only use trails, you are a...

Starting to get into bigger blades and need to step my sharpening game up. For my pocket knives I've been using a turn-box and finishing on a strop, but I'm thinking of investing in some proper stones to sharpen convex and scandi ground blades.
I've been hiking my whole life, but I've never really prepared for it the way I should. I don't like carrying more than I need to. I brought 1L of water and a king sized Payday to get me up and down Yosemite falls last year. It was tough, and I ran out of batteries for my phone so I ended up hiking down with a high school kid and his mom since they had a flashlight.
When I was in college, I remember hiking up Mt. Laconte with a 12oz of water and nothing else. It was a seven hour hike, and I was saved by a Forrest Gump man who gave me half his bagel, in... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Water. Probably rain gear and some snacks.
Unless there's something dangerous about the conditions (ice/snow, rockfall, cliffs, etc), then I will pack more actual emergency stuff: beacon/comms, firestarter, headlamp, essential first aid (iodine, gauze, tape, knife).
Hello /out/ friends. I didn't know if this was for here or maybe DIY.
Does anybody know what pic related is? Googling hasn't returned anything. I live in the Northeast US and the back of my yard is regularly overrun by this highly unpleasant, thorny and resilient overgrowth from the fuckers behind me.
This stuff grows like wildfire. I pulled all of it out in early spring and it's already back if not thicker than before. I've tried a few of the "natural" and Internet favorite weed killing methods and now I'm considering using... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>787969 This. I've dealt with this shit alot before. Lots of luck OP. Idk how you could truly eradicate it without massive and potent poisoning or literally digging it all out by the roots down to the very last strand.
Try checking with your local city or county extension office. they may have tips/advice on certain nuisance plants like this.
What are your thoughts on going /out/ in calk boots? i work in forestry and everyone who has them says it makes walking through the woods 5x easier, and is like having 4x4 for your feet Anyone have experience with them?
I've got two questions for you guys. Firstly, I am tanning the pelt of an animal I can't identify. I thought it was a raccoon when I picked it off the side of the road, but it's definitely not. The face was all black; no cute coon cheeks, and heavy padded forepaws, not like raccoon hands at all. But about the same size, and with a ringed tail. Long fox-like snout. It looks *exactly* like pic related -- except pic related lives in South America, and I'm in Maine. Do we have invasive coatimundi population in New England, or am I crazy? It's not...
