First ever post, wanted some advice/ panoramic perspective on this homemade black pipe shotgun I found. The only purpose it's for is hunting and self defense if shit were to hit the fan. It's really cheap to make and is pretty straight forward, see pic. I think you could make this really small and lightweight, illegal but wouldn't matter in the hypothetical shit-uation. Thoughts?
Noisy criket made the video on YouTube I screen shotted thus from "black pipe shotgun"
Pretty much every dog has sharper ears than you. If you want the dog to hunt with then the best one depends on what type of hunting dog you want. There are a bunch of different types sighthound, scenthound, retrievers, points, etc. Then you have to train them from birth to do what you want, and even then they might still suck at hunting.
I don't think a dog will be much help keeping you safe from bears or wolves though.
I have always wanted to get into something like this. It seems like such an accomplishment to summit a peak and would love to be very appreciative to be able to do this one day. Question is..how do I as an amateur with no experience. I know I would like to make all 7 summits.The way I figured to do so is by starting at the lowest altitude mountain Kosciuszko and move up the list. Problem is I know Kilamanjaro is not a technical climb therefore making it semi ideal for beginners but is the 4th highest. Maybe someone can shed some light on this.
>>638135 Yeah but thats not what Im asking. Sure I can go with a expedition with no exp and have literally no know how..or I can do the reasonably smart option and start at the beginning. Thanks for the input though. I do know what expeditions exist to bring beginners up top but I just dont feel that would be the appropriate route.
Hey guys, I've been on this board for a while now and I'm looking into careers in forestry. I'm Irish and there's opportunities for studying abroad like America. What can I expect from this kind of job area?
I'm moving to Boulder from the midwest soon and was surprised to see this happening in Colorado. It seems much more progressive than here. Are these kinds of people very common there or is it just a case of wackos are everywhere?
So, I will be purchasing myself a pair of 9ft brown wool puttees for outdoor hiking use. I already know what they are used for but I want to know if there is anyone else who uses/has used/want to use for themselves. I personally can not wait until mine arrive just in time for this cold snowy weather
>>637828 Just to point a few things out... They take time to put on, for example when you want to change socks or something. They stop circulation in your feet if you pull them too tight. They will usually get really dirty. Wool cloth doesn't get dirty easily, but it's comparably harder to wash.
Definitely go to a store and figure out your size first. Even if you don't buy it from that store.
My first pack was an Osprey Kestrel 48 and I haven't felt the need to upgrade yet. It's durable, well made, and everything I need. It's the kind of thing you'll keep around for a long time even if you decide to go ultralight or something. It's just as good for regular travel as it is for backpacking.
Plus they have a lifetime no-questions-asked warranty. So if something does break, even if it's your fault, they will fix it or replace it for free.
It's a pretty expensive pack for a starter pack. BUT if it fits all your gear nicely really can't go wrong. 70 Liters is a good space for 3-4 days and they claim it handles loads up to 50 lbs very comfortably so that's more weight than you will use.
Lot's of people for their first pack spend something like $30-$100 and is like 50 liters and under but then you are really limiting yourself what you can bring and how it can be packed.
I figured you guys would know more about this than I would But today I was walking through some woods ( 2 sq miles surrounded by houses in a fairly big city) not really looking to do anything spectacular just figured it would be fun. But I found this seemingly severed doe head laying in some brush keep in mind, i found no blood, no body, no real trails besides deer paths, Des Moines IA, skull cleaved clean through no brain, looking at the spine not shown in the picture it almost looks ripped off the body. Wtf happened? i feel like it would be weird... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>636024 This, Arcteryx makes (or used to) some pretty good leather gloves. Cost me an arm and a leg even on clearance, but they've lasted over 5 years with no visible wear. Granted, I live in a temperate rainforest so the temperature rarely dips below -15°C, but they're nice and toasty, apparently good to -30.
