I once read an account of a frontiersman who sold his life for a parcel of expensive "wooded land" is the southwest, sight unseen. His plan was to start a sawmill to build a cabin, then run the sawmill for profit. As you might expect, it was miles of mountain juniper. After years of trying and failing to anything with his lot, he sold it at a huge loss and was reported to call the trees "the only thing created by god which holds no earthly purpose".

I've got the chisel version of that on my work belt. They hit the heat treat amazingly well for such a cheap knife; it's both hard and tough. I use it to bust through old nails and screws in wood that can't be pulled or drilled out easily.

All your points are spot on.

I hate these trail / game cameras and want a way to detect them so I can either avoid them or delete my picture. I don't want to be caught pissing or shitting in the woods or picking my nose.

Does such a device exist? I guess the only way to detect them would be the infrared flash light, but that is only active at night I would think. I am able to make it myself, but rather not if I can buy it.

You still have to know what band it’s transmitting on. Otherwise you’ll be scanning huge spectrum and might walk right by it and not see it because you’re in the wrong band at that moment

Take a pic of the next one you see and google the model so you know what freq it’s on. You’ll be able to locate any others in the area. People usually buy these like 6-10 at a time

https://www.citizen-times.com/story/news/local/2020/09/22/great-smoky-mountains-national-park-offers-reward-dead-bear/5865032002/

Visitors reported finding the head and pelt of a black bear Saturday draped over the parkway entrance sign near the Highway 321 intersection in Walland, Tennessee.

Along with the dead bear, there was a handwritten cardboard sign attached to the entrance sign that read ‘from here to the lake black lives don’t matter,’” a release from the Park Service said.

"The skull was still in it and there was still fluid dripping off the backside of the skin," he said, adding that he'd seen tanned hides of black bears and can tell the difference.

Park officials have not released any additional details on the bear. Hunting bears is illegal in the national park but it is legal in other parts of Tennessee, with certain restrictions. Bear season doesn't begin until Sept. 26.

Transporting animals killed elsewhere requires special permission from park officials, according to parks spokeswoman Dana Soehn.

Only if you are slow of mind.

>and offers no benefit.
The latin name is unambiguous. The common name can be specific to a time and place, but the latin name uniquely defines the species. For example, daddy long legs could be a bug, a spider or a plant. Or the bird called robin in NA, which is a completely different species from the European robin it was named after.

Scientific names serve as a shared language for species as the same species can have regional common names that are wildly different or certain regions will have the same common name for completely different species. It's unambiguous.

Why not? Save up your money and buy a small parcel of land in the middle of fucking nowhere. A prefab building costs less than a used car and can be purchased at most major hardware stores; and yes, they deliver. They even have two-story buildings available.

My cabin is almost as big as my house; consists of two pre-fab buildings I had delivered to my property. I joined the two buildings together to make one big cabin, insulated them and put up walls (wooden boards in some rooms, drywall in others), made a real wooden floor by salvaging the flooring out of a 100+ year old church that was being demolished, buried a big propane tank hooked to a gas stove and gas-powered refrigerator, installed a wood-burning kitchen stove as a backup means of cooking and for heating the front building and a pot belly stove for heating the rear building, put in three 5,000 gallon water tanks and a rain capture system, and a composting toilet. I built a porch out of 2x4's, lumber, and old telephone poles. Solar panels charge batteries I bought off a guy whose job is to replace the batteries used by cell phone towers; they replace the batteries every two years whether they're still good or not, so he sold me the good ones for the price he'd get from recycling them. During the day, it provides enough electricity to have indoor lighting all day, and at night the lights last a couple of hours. To run the air conditioners (window units, one in each building) I have to run a generator; eventually I'll have the money to put in one that runs off of my propane tank, but for now I just use a regular gas generator. Really only need A/C for short periods of time and only on the hottest days; I designed the windows to generate a cross breeze (hint: they should open at the bottom on one side of the cabin, open at the top on the other), and the cabin is very well insulated, so if it's too hot to just have the windows open I only need to run A/C for an hour to cool it down.

That's the new cabin. My old cabin I built entirely myself from plywood and logs. It last a decade before it started to rot, and the cost of replacing the roof, floor, etc. was such that I'd basically end up building a whole new cabin. I took the pot belly stove, furniture, windows, and everything else I could reuse out and burned it, then ordered the first prefab building and had it placed on top of the remains of the old cabin. Prefab building was nice for a few years, then I had the budget to expand it and improve on it, so I did.

Don't spend your money on stupid shit like trendy clothes, iPhones, and other bullshit and you'll discover it's a lot easier to save up for that sort of thing than you initially thought. The more work you can do yourself, the cheaper it gets. I did all my own plumbing, electrical work, flooring, insulation, etc. I only purchased what I couldn't build myself, and had it delivered; all labor was my own. Hell, look into how to build a log cabin if you want to do EVERYTHING yourself.

If you can't afford land, look into the squatter's rights laws in your state. Some guy delivering a prefab cabin/shed in the middle of nowhere isn't going to ask if you're the property owner, and if you can show you've lived on the land for a certain length of time, the land is yours. Don't steal somebody else's land; take it from the government or a corporation. Fuck 'em.

Let’s start a dear season thread boys.

I need advice, I live in Houston and have never hunted before. I just bought a .270 and plan on chasing whitetail in Sam Houston forest because public land is limited in Houston. I don’t have a tree stand so I’m hunting from the ground. I have heard the best way to hunt public is to hike a couple of miles into the forest but aren’t deer heavy as shit. They look pretty large what’s the best way to get it back to my car. Also Sam Houston is literally an overgrown jungle so should I try hunting clearings or ponds/creeks? Also general season doesn’t start for whitetail until November 7th. I want to hunt opening day what would be the best time to start hunting. I planned on getting up before dawn and hiking in the forest.

>how do I get it back to my car?
You’ll have to field dress it, that is you cut it from butt hole to sternum and remove its internal organs. You can then carry or cart out the carcass. I’m not a hunter but I’ve seen it done.

>what time?
You’ll want to be in the woods when the sun rises. Often night hunts require special permits or have different regulations, but deer are most active at dawn. When I hike in deer season most hunters are done by the time I even arrive at the trailhead.

What's it like here? I've lived in both southern forests and western forested mountains, the problem with the former being the god-awful humidity almost year-round (and no snow or real winter) and the problem with the latter being mountains making travel difficult and lakes (i.e. fish) more sparse as well in a way. I've heard a lot of Finns move to this area due to its resemblance to central Finland.

Dinty Moore beef stew, or Wolf brand chili (no beans; adding beans to chili is heresy), cooking in an Austrian surplus mess kit. Add some pilot bread to dip in it; delicious, and very filling.

Sardines in mustard sauce are great, but any seafood product SMELLS once you open it while camping. In addition to being obnoxious, the smell attracts unwanted guests.
