Just a friendly reminder that threads about weapons which do not pertain to their use in outdoor activities should be posted on /k/ instead. Thanks.

Want to get a good knife for camping,hiking, etc. What would be a good, generally useful knife to get? (Preferably under $100)

I use it like a normal human being and my goal isn't to destroy the knife or push it to its limits, it's to use it as long as possible. They have a 25 year guarantee on them IIRC. I don't think I'll ever need it though. It seems like a good, solid Gerber knife. I also like Bear Grylls, so there's a sentimental attachment I have to the knife. He's the one who inspired me to start doing /out/ stuff. Sadly, my dad isn't the type of guy who would do stuff like this with me, and he never did.

The main difference in the 1st and 2nd edition is that in the 2nd, the fire starter rod is rotated by 180 degrees so that it can't slip out from its sheath (which hasn't happened to me yet though), and the sharpener is one of those weird slit types in the 2nd. I prefer a good old fashioned flat surface. I suspect the latter does the job just as well though.

just been to a knife shop in my city. I'm gonna put out there is a brand of knife "hultafors" that seem a lot better than the morakniv though quite similar. The handles are quite a bit better, with friction grip, I think a lot safer for crafting. bit cheaper than mora as well.

Was looking the outdoor hatchet/mora 2000 combo but i dunno man, I might just get a more traditional hatchet or some cheap shit from the hardware outlet.

Same, and even though I've used mine quite a bit, it still looks to be in great shape because I do not intentionally try to rough it up. Whatever "damage" occurs naturally via the execution of a particular necessary task is perfectly acceptable, but I would never purposely abuse it for aesthetics just so a bunch of faggot retards will be "impressed".

I also like Bear Grylls. In a way, using his gear almost kind of feels like he's "there" with you helping you to survive. I appreciate that his little fold up emergency survival guide includes to keep faith in "The Almighty". It's very comfy gear.

Is mushroom hunting /out/? I found these mushrooms under a cluster of ash junipers today, it's been fairly rainy and warm. They look like real chanterelles but I'm not enough of an expert to tell for sure between this and the Jack o Lantern, which grows in my area.

Yeah I think it's candlesnuff, but I have to wait and see, the things are under 1cm for the biggest ones at the moment and my hands don't do so well on small delicate tasks anymore. I'll give them a few more days then go see if I can collect some bigger ones for proper identification.

If they're hollow from stem to tip, you've found edible morels.

If they're not hollow, there's a chance they're poisonous false morels.

The ones you showed here look fine, but I wouldn't take the risk, desu. Think of the risk / reward. Is it worth it? No. Just throw the ones you're unsure of away, and enjoy the rest. Pretty simple.
>>
>>1519592

Those are mica caps or inky caps. Technically edible, but not worth the taste / mess. The "melting" you see is called deliquescence, or self-digestion, which marks the end of that particular mushroom's life cycle. Interesting species, and common in spring, but not a foraging prize.

My 16 yo brother likes to fish on the pond on our newly aquired land. However he wants to catch bass and there's only a shit load of crappie and some catfish in it. I recently learned that crappie are the niggers of pond ecosystems, and it's impossible to breed catfish and bass in the same pond where there are many crappie. There are many methods for removing crappie but those methods will harm the catfish my brother wants to keep.

We can't go electrofishing because it affects catfish more than crappie/perch.

My solution is to use our seine line + boat + feeding pellets to draw in fish to a certain place, net them up, then sort out the catfish from the nigger crappie. Then repeat this process in quadrants until the pond loses most of its' crappie population.

Though the seine net genocide method is the most effective it is very time consuming. Is there any way we can genocide the nigger crappie without using as many resources? I know I can't completely destroy the crappie population, though I do want to limit it extremely so bass and catfish can grow.

Birds, usually.

A egret flys to a lake. Wades around, and sometimes little fish eggs get caught up in the down feathers by their legs. They then fly somewhere else and the eggs get dropped into the water.

This is why you may come across a ditch that has minnows in it that is in no way connected to any other water source.

What's the scariest thing that's happened to you innawoods?

Summer of 2015 I had a guy follow me and my friends while backpacking through the Sawtooth Mountains in northern Minnesota.
It was raining for about three or four days straight and my friends were getting really pissy about the weather but really pushed ourselves through the terrain once we noticed that sometimes on the trails we kept seeing the same guy behind us, but he would never pass us or make a camp in the same campsite. It must've been five days of seeing the guy about 100 yards behind us without him passing, and then he stopped appearing after a group of a dozen or so college girls passed us in the other direction. It was kinda weird. The youngest of our group kept saying somebody was in our campsite in the middle of the night but nobody wanted to go see.

I was hiking a 12 mile loop to see some water falls in Big Basin one time and misjudged how long it would take and ended up hiking in pitch darkness with 3 miles of strenuous terrain to go. It was bad enough to hike with just enough light to see 10ft in front of me i started hearing steps that was in sync with me. I thought it could be a person but i had stopped several times already and never once did someone pass me. With a mile to go, i distinctly heard the steps being out of sync to mines. It was like split second faster. That last mile constantly pointing the light behind me trying to catch eyes reflecting still gives me the heebie jeebies.

Autumn 2018, Tatry
It was such a warm autumn, normaly, there would be much snow at the higher parts, but luckily there wasn't any.
I decided to hike at Zawrat, very popular trail at the season, but at the time, it weren't many people, almost none.
I went from mountain safehouse, and i haven't met any people for like 5 hours, and suddenly pic related.
A crow eating a sandwich, a backpack which it opened, left by someone at the middle of a narrow trail.
When i got closer, bird fly away with a chocolate candybar, up to the peaks.
I came closer and i saw that next to that opened backpack is a graveyard candle.
Crow took out some things from that backpack, like a wallet, which he opened too some medical bills.
I checked it, and through he may want to commit suicide, because i heard about very simmiliar things about that place.
I was looking for the body, but i didn't find anything.
I through he may go at the Orla Perć, and do something from there, but decided to just wait.
Half hour later, i saw someone coming down.
It was some 16 year old student, who ran from the school, and he was suprised, that something ate his sandwiches.

I've had this one for about a week, not even fully broken in, and it's the most comfortable hat I've ever owned. Loads of shade and plenty cool.
Due to the size, not too great for thick scrub, but still, can't recommend them enough.
