hog is a general term for pig
you're thinking of barrow
given the proper tools, numbskull
I'm not that crowbar retard who thinks he can 1v1 a wild boar
if I was unarmed when attacked AND managed to get out of there unscathed like >>1582286 claims, I'd certainly return to hunt them all
Um hey there pardner, perhaps we should just surrender to the piggies?
Are you stupid???
Hogs are natural climbers.
Did you teleport behind it and eviscerate it with your soul forged katana?
I have personally seen a rabid oinker take 4 rounds of 5.56 before it finally keeled over. Maybe it just got "lucky" and all its vitals escaped the first three.

I'm thinking about kayaking down a local river. About 60-70 miles in length and no more than a class 2. My kayak looks about the same as pic related, a cheapo, walmart yak. Is it possible? About how many days will it take?
My biggest fear is the homeless living along the river so I'll probably be armed but is this feasible? I love kayaking but i've never done a touring, yaking, camping combo. Am i stupid for trying this? Anyone experienced in this sorta thing. I'll be pretty much noobing it out there solo but I'm willing to take the risk for the sake of adventure

Stop being a fear fag. It will take one day, maybe two. Don't bring a gun. All you fear fags annoy me. A bat or big stick is a better anti-homeless tool than a gun.
I really don't get why /out/ is paralytically afraid of bums when they're about a thousand times more likely to be killed by one of their own neighbors.

I don't mind eating only cold food for 5-6 days, but a day started without coffee is a bad day, especially when /out/.
How do you go about heating/boiling water?
I'm considering buying pic related, it's an alcohol heater. Has anyone experience/tips regarding this type of burner?

Not really sure, mine came with my whitebox burner, and seeing as the one in OP's pic also is with a whitebox. Maybe they sell them on their site. Let me have a look.

So it's just a sheet of 0.16mm thick aluminium. I found a site selling them in the UK, but I'm sure it'd be pretty easy to google them for sale in the states.

It's alive! My basic electrical setup somehow works... against all odds. Battery strapped under the seat. Goes to a master switch. That goes to a positive and negative bus bar. Then to a fuse box. All the 12v loads can now be run right off the fuse box. And additional charge sources (shore power, alternator, solar) can be fed into the bus bar. Easy peasy.

But i have absolutely no idea what to do beyond find a place i can legally hunt and walk around until i see a deer, then shoot it in the heart/lungs and wear orange so i dont get shot. What do i need besides food and water, a gun, and a knife to field dress the deer?

Fugg, I misread the post. Yeah it's 30-30, I don't need much more most places I hunt.
Nice straight grain. Love the foreend cap, hard to find such nice ones!

I just picked up a Win M88 in .308 Win, also in great shape.
>hard to find such nice ones

It was one of those weird super lucky gunshow finds. Paid like $275 for it. Jelly of the m88 though

Alright so I'm finally making time to take a trip to Dolly Sods WV this weekend. I've wanted to go for a while. I have a Tacoma and I want to be able to sleep in the bed. Can anybody recommend a place to go in Dolly Sods where I can drive in and camp? I'm from PA and there are always a lot of off-roading trails in state forests where you can drive in and then just camp wherever you want. Googling isn't helping so I thought I would consult with some experts. Thanks

I live an hour away from the Allegheny national forest, not alot of people actually stop and explore it. People just drive through or stick to the trails.

If you know how to marginally read a map and spend $30. On the topography map they sell. You will be set.

I plan on actually doing a kayaking camping trip sometime before the season gets too cold.
You know there's UXOs, right?
I already told you that unless you want to be an asshole camping in a parking area or a trailhead, you have to go to Red Creek campground, or start walking. These roads you keep going on about don't exist up there, there is only FR-75 and the one on the other side that run the perimeter. You don't like it but just accept it.gif
Fuck I didn't see this thread when I posted mine:


I am taking a trip the last week of September to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for 2 nights then staying at a cabin near Spruce Knob (Riverton, WV) for 4 nights.

Any ideas for what to do there?

I want to maybe do an EASIER day hike in Dolly Sods with a good view where the trail is at least somewhat decently marked if possible and I won't get super lost.

I also was thinking Bald Knob chairlift, and the last day we are going to raft the Savage River dam release.

I want to have multiple ideas of hikes, caving, maybe something outdoors near/in Pittsburgh as well.

Last time we did just the first bit of the Bear Rocks trail in Dolly Sods, and the Cheat High Falls trail, and the time before we did the Seneca Creek trail. I love water features, views, and meadows.

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Literally just land nav arpu d off the trails. Or hike the north country trail. Horse back camp.

Kayak camping. There are alot of oil and gas roads that you can drive down and get lost in and camp.

It's a massive park, use your imagination.

I go there once a month to the national forest.

>Tfw exploiting 3rd worlders for youtube views so you can live like a dictator in whatever shithole these things are filmed in.
I'm going to start limiting my use of youtube. If I only give myself three videos a day I'll probably use them wisely and learn something instead of wasting time. Does this sound like a good idea?
Does ANYONE have the link to the old man swamp/river hermit? He has a small pad next to the river's edge. He went into the woods to live with a bolt action rifle and an axe and has been living out there for like 30 years, even selling furs for salt to cure meat. He also has a big slab of meat hanging out in the open that he salt cured. I think his grandson heads out to live with him for the summer.

The whole Pocket area is one of my favorite places, but it sucks so much has been paved. My family had reunions on the side of the dirt roads there years ago. I hiked the whole JM loop with my son not long ago and the only other humans we saw were a tatted up Desert Shield vet woman and her female companion, about 1/3 in clockwise.
we used to love to ride the trail up the mountain in the mud but they paved it. the whole area seems to be getting paved. ruins it imo. my son is also my /out/ sidekick lol

Well, just the one service road to the top was paved, the trails are still as they've always been. I'm deeply missing having my son for /out/ sidekick, he just went off to UGA the other day.
GO DAWGS! mine is three. right now any ole city person can get up there.
Yeah, but they'll just drive up, look at the view, and drive away, not very many hike the full trail, especially with so much of it grown partially over and all the poison ivy/oak on both sides of it in many places. Even the average "hiker" isn't going to do the loop.

think outside of your thick skull

sometimes sleeping on the ground is a really bad idea. in lots of situations. sometimes it's safer to be in the truck. you're only thinking of absolutely perfect conditions in 1 setting
where would you need to go if you are getting ready to go to sleep? this is silly thinking. leave your house every once in a while it's not that scary

This shit seems like 10x worse.
I had two raccoons start fighting/fucking about 20 yards behind us while catfishing one night. It was dead silent and the fuckers just lit up out of nowhere.
I used to have around 2000 hectares of land in a secluded area in my country.

We took a long walk around the area and when we got back to the house it was full of guerilla fighters that were well known for kidnapping people.

I guess this didnt happen outside, but whatever.

The tip snapped just above the second eyelet. The rod is so thin there its hard to find something that wont just bend if i set the hook but also wont completely ruin the action. It was only $20 and is still returnable, I'll probably just get another for the time being.
Ya'll ain't never fished for a salty slime dart before?
I'd just take the end eyelet and use it in the broke off section, replacing the remaining eyelet near the break if needed. I've done that like.....way too many times thanks to other people slamming car doors on my rods.
