How the FUCK are you ever supposed to stalk deer in a southeastern forest in fall with the sheer amount of noise? It doesn't matter how you walk or tiptoe, there's no way to avoid spooking every deer in a 200 yard radius with every step. I hate boring sitting-in-a-cuckstand all day "hunting". But there's no way to actually stalk animals with these leaves.

Am I deluding myself? Should I just hunt out west where this problem doesn't exist?

I hunt traditional recurve and have found that wearing very thick socks with leather moccasins treated with a fuck ton of water proofing wax (parafin, beeswax, "greenland wax", etc) works very well. Your feet wont get absolutely soaked unless you purposely walk through water and the leaves kind of "stick" to your soles. You'll find that different leaves act different underfoot. Oaks suck due to them curling up, while maples tend to lay flat and are primo. Of course like others have said you will be standing/squatting a lot too. Depending on animal activity I usually: walk slowly about 30 min to a spot, slav squat behind tree for an hour by a game trail or feeding opening, and then move on.

Two girls (19, so young) I work with have about a 40 minute drive, each, to get to work every day.
WNY area, so winters get heavy.
Neither have ever had emergency car kits. Type of family that never worried about it.

Thought I'd give them a hand putting one together, but I'm a non-driver (what I can't walk to, I use public transport. Poor fag), so I'm not sure exactly what the kit should have.
Plan is to come up with something for 1 or 2 people, not a family kit. They usually drive alone.

My idea so far:
1-3 of those mylar emergency space blankets.
1 wool blanket.
2 pairs sweat pants, 2 sweaters or sweatshirts
2 pairs extra gloves, 2 extra winter hats
2 scarves.
6 road flares (or, more likely, the high intensity green 12 hour glow sticks)
a box of those hand warmer things (best way to keep feet warm. Stick one in each shoe.)

Hmmm, I wonder why you're so angry that someone wants to be as warm as possible.

>You don't need wool either you fucking retard, it's just an emergency blanket, not a luxury item
Oh, it's because you don't live in the real world.
Army surplus wool blankets are literally $15 where I live.

>Look, all your need is a way to either call a tow truck, or flag down another motorist
And you also don't live in a rural area, like 2/3 Americans do.

>Drop all the sperg shit and add a hi viz vest, jumper cables, a tire pressure gauge, stuff like that.
By adding useful items, you are only slightly less of an asshole.

Because I totally bought this for the bracket and the bracket alone, not for the entire rest this piece of kit consists of. Yes. The item is practically this bracket only, and there is absolutely nothing else of interest why I could possibly have decided to spend money. Yes.

You must be the kind of idiot who picks up a wad of cash held together with a rubber band only to keep the band and throw the money away.

I found this stone disc today when I went fishing to a remote creek, does anyone have an idea what could it be?
As you can see it has circular ridges on one side, the other one is blank. Diameter is 19.3 cm, thickness is 1.5 cm..
It's too small to be a millstone and too smooth to be a grinding stone (plus there's no hole in the middle). It also doesn't strike me as a coaster or a base of some pot - why would you put so much work in such a simple item, making it out of stone.
I live in the Alps, there's a small village 2 km away from this creek, there are historical settlements, but way down the valley.
I'm perplexed by what this perfectly circular disc made out of stone was doing in the creek, perhaps someone can help me?

pic related it's the disc

Trees are supposed to be planted in Fall in the deep south. Summer can dry them out from the heat, so you are supposed to let the roots acclimate during the mild winters. It is recommend that you cover the saplings with frost clothes during the few nights when tempts drop below freezing.

Acclimation in that sense is a meme. Acclimation only applies to predictive dormancy cycles or exposure shock. If your tree is sourced locally, plant it whenever you want.

Chinese haven't a clue how to farm animals historically, you go into rural china and you will still find places where the pig pen is also the villages toilet. They grow rice with their abundant manpower, and eat any meat they could get their hands on, because there has been many times meat was in very short supply

How did our ancestors deal with (((mosquitos)))? Imagine being a hunter in the forest spending a few summer nights in the forest trying to hunt some big game. Literally impossible to sleep without a modern tent to block (((mosquitos))), they are all buzzing ""oy veyyyzzzzzzz" in your ears all night and try to leech your life force away. Did (((they))) even exist back then or is it a recent phenomenon created by (((them))) as yet another technique to keep us away from the forest and force us into the system of (((civilization)))?
