what do you have to expect when you go hiking with a human female?

Oh, mostly this pissed me off because she went the wrong way and ended up having to split up the group, one guy goes for the car, others go looking for her. And we got stuck in a snow drift with the car because of this. 0/10. Would not repeat.

Just go for a short hike with her and see for yourself. It's not like there is one model of human female with hiking sliders set for the same values.

What makes urbanoids so incredibly awful? Why do they insist on not packing out their trash, and leaving their shitty tags on landmarks?
>>
>>1986594
stereotyping all urban people together is just blind ignorance; shitty people exist that do things like litter in every community, even rural ones
>>
>>1986596
yeah the irony is a lot of rural people - I'd assume teens and young people especially - are the ones leaving trash and tagging rocks and stuff.

City people are just the easiest thing to blame I guess and it reinforces their preconceived notions that they are good stewards of the land and everyone else but them is the problem.

It just degrades the quality of discussion here. There's a few people here who are adamant that we not talk about which trails are nice because that's "spoonfeeding" - so any attempt to discuss specifics gets derailed by hostility.

I grew up here and have been here for 30 years. I've seen other great outdoor places, but to say IL doesn't have a decent share of outdoor stuff is ignorant. If you're in Chicagoland, I could see it. We have the best deer hunting in the midwest, maybe even the country. Fishing is debatable.

The only ones from IL dismantling your culture are Chicagoans.

Based. IL prairie is beautiful for what's left of it. There used to be a beautiful clearing with a small hill and a single tree on top of it surrounded by woods you could see from Route 48 just outside Palmer. Someone decided to farm it and now it is no longer beautiful.

I am wanting to get into using a bivy and the part I like is the little to no setup. I was thinking of something lightweight with no poles. I saw the snugpack SF bivy and like how compact it is. Do any of you guys have any experience with it? Is it actually waterproof? I cannot find any videos or anything of anyone actually using it in the rain as a stand-alone option. Is there something else you guys would recommend that is better but still lightweight and compact? I already know about the MSS and am not I want to know if there is a lighter option.

Every week seems like someone posts a new thread asking what dog they should get to hunt what. Below is the /out/ approved tier list of hunting dogs and their purpose.

Upland Birds: Pheasant, Quail, Grouse, Prairie Chickens, Ptarmigan, Woodcock, Snipe, Chukar, and Partridge

Pointing Breeds: Dogs that track and point birds. All inherently superior to Flusher Breeds except for Pheasant hunting.

Top Tier: English Pointers, English Setters
Mid Tier: Gordon and Red setters, Brittanys
Shit Tier: All novelty breeds/imports

Flushers: Dogs that scent and flush game at closer range than pointers. All inherently inferior upland dogs to pointers except when hunting pheasant. All Mid Tier and above breeds are Mid Tier retrievers as well.

Top Tier: English Springer Spaniels, Boykin Spaniels
Mid Tier: English Cocker
Shit Tier: Everything else

GSPs dominate the NAVDHA game. They make up like 50% of my chapter. I would have gotten one, but Viszlas are just so damn handsome. I do the NAVDHA thing as a way to keep my dog sharp in the off season. I look at it as a bar to aspire towards and as a community to network with.

>>1984766
I’ve also heard that Vs can be soft. I didn’t get that. I’ve shocked my dog on full power and watched him twitch as he chased a rabbit till it went to ground. Thankfully I’ve broke him of that habit, and now points every thing. I had a pro-trainer who was impressed enough with my dog to tell me that this will be the dog that I judge all others against. Which is great cause I got my dog from a backyard breeder who just wanted to make some money off of their Vs.

>how does your V range?
In open prairie he works out to 200 yards. In the woods he works closer. And he will check in with me about every 2 minutes. Yesterday I went scaled quail hunting, I walked 6 miles and he did 18, he covers massive ground.

Idk why everyone say the Drahthaar is the chad of the versatile dog world.
>>
>>1985999
Because those dudes are absolute nazis about their breeding standards. Hard to argue with the results. They follow the German doctrine of breeding and cull pretty ruthlessly. Not the behind the kennel way like the old timers did but their club won’t register a litter unless the dam and sire meet their relatively strict standards. AKC breeders can be pretty clownish in their form over function philosophy. Even us AF guys don’t really give a shit about conformation. Seems like the draht, kurz, and brittany guys strike the best balance between the two. The former two being more versatile and the draht having the more functional coat. Thats the logic behind the reputation imo.

Glad to hear the Vs doing better. They are a good deal more aesthetic than a GWP lol. Sounds like you got a great one. When I was in NAVDHA we only had two in our club and they were both boot polishers. That was when I learned you can reel a horizon chasing dog in but getting a closer hunting dog to range out is a bigger challenge.

Loads of lurcher type crosses here in the UK. A friend of my gf was walking her three whippet crosses when they took off after a deer. By the time she found them they'd caught, killed and eaten it with basically only the head of the deer still more or less intact.

Great dogs. Perfectly calm and gentle 99% of the time, until they spot something they want to chase, at which point they instantly transform into a horrifying 40mph death machine.
>>
>>1986450
Wooosh. The joke was my V was jumping a Draht. And yeah, those guys are nazis about their dogs. That’s why the breed is so good. I’m strongly considering adding one to my string.

NotOP here, how does one tell true SSO/SPOSN gear from fake shit? Greyshop was the first site I had seen with Russian web gear on it, but I appreciate the heads up
To be entirely honest I'm not sure if I would try doing this with Russian webgear primarily because its easier and cheaper for me to get US webgear where I'm at, but I am interested in trying this idea of camping using web gear (plus STALKing sounds pretty fun, so I'd want to get some for that at least) cool loadout picture by the way, if you've got any pictures if your current loadout I'd love to see it

Honestly just airshit forums there are plenty of airshitters with autism who spend considerable amount of time getting authentic gear.

By western standards the gear is cheap as shit however so you might as well just go on ebay and buy from the first seller with good reviews.
