>*crunch crunch crunch*
How the FUCK are you ever supposed to stalk deer in a southeastern forest in fall with the sheer amount of noise? It doesn't matter how you walk or tiptoe, there's no way to avoid spooking every deer in a 200 yard radius with every step. I hate boring sitting-in-a-cuckstand all day "hunting". But there's no way to actually stalk animals with these leaves.

Am I deluding myself? Should I just hunt out west where this problem doesn't exist?

Discuss Gear

Sup /out/ists,

Need a good jacket recommendation for camping in places where it rains all the time and the temperature doesn't rise enough for shit to dry. Pic related is what I was wearing last few times and I got away with it until a really bad downpour which soaked me head to toe because I went above the "water resistance rating" apparently. So pls give me something that will keep me dry as long as I don't go for a swim.

Also any advice on further waterproofing would be appreciated, I wanted to get a lot of drybags but shit's heavy and expensive so just planning on rolling large chunks of my gear into double layered heavy duty garbage bags and hoping for the best if I get caught out in some monsoon tier rain.

Also general gear thread.

wuz up wit Wild Fires lately?

No.1883653 ViewReplyOriginalReport
and how can that not be main story on /out/?

hard about lots of arson mostly around Portland but not much in last couple days on /pol/.

Guard companies calling me to do 12 shifts armed guard up in Ukiah for Cal Fire $420(sic) a day plus hotel and meals. I hope "420 a day" does mean they pay you in weed. Sounds like fun but tied down at the moment in SF bay area.

Are these fires destructive in the big scheme or just much overdue clearing of dead brush? Will be much more pasture/grass and less chaparral next couple years? Cool new places to hike in one or two years or degraded for generations?

Is this going to bring all sorts of restrictions on being able to wander about out in the wild, because every single or double hikers will be assumed to be arsonists?

Air seems bit clearer last couple days.

What is wrong with you fucks? How can you ever go outside again? My life is ruined. Thousands of people have walked into our national forests, never to be seen again. I had no idea and I know that you have no idea what I'm talking about because you're on the /OUT/ thread. Now these people don't just fall, break an ankle, and starve because they never find their bodies, or if they do find something it'll be years later in the same area they had hundreds of people scouring for days or weeks and the evidence won't make any sense. Items that the victim would have had on then will show up neatly placed miles down the trail or even miles off of the trail. Then you have children who at two years old disappear for a week in the woods only to be found 10 miles away deep in the woods, with nothing more than some surface level scratches and they're a little emaciated. There is something happening that cannot be explained in any way. I'm a /POL/ junkie and that's what I spend most of my time ranting about, but now that I know this is happening politics means nothing compared to thousands of innocent disappearing never to be seen again especially since the vast majority of other people in the U.S. have no idea what's happening or that even something is happening. Never go into the woods alone, please.

Barefoot, separate shoes for stream crossing, or just keep on your hiking shoes/boots and let them dry as you hike?

Has anyone found a comprehensive guide on building cabins?
Not that I'm going to do that anytime soon, it might just be nice to know.
Also post cabins.

Too Old

No.1885345 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
I read that hunting is usually patrilineal, meaning its passed from grandfather to father, father to son. I'm 36 and I want to start hunting, and I've always loved the idea of trying to hunt for subsistence and to help my son develop more of a love of nature. The problem is my grandpa stopped hunting before I was born, he had 3 daughters, no son's, and of course I grew up without a dad, then eventually a stepfather who also stopped hunting long before I was around. Now I have a son of my own and I want to be the type of father I wanted when I was a kid, but I don't know how to get started in any meaningful way, especially when I work so much.

I have mentioned squirrel hunting as an easy in to get started, but I don't know how to work that into eventually getting a deer down the road, or learning how to field dress properly instead of watching cut together videos on youtube.

I just want to be in nature more, be more self reliant, and teach my son a way of life that I never got to experience, but I'm clueless as to where I should start.
