what is an easy all around trap for scandi forests? bird trap or small game trail trap?
Conibear #110
This. But depending on which animals you plan on trapping you might want a 160 or 220. Also a #11 double long spring is great if footholds are an option.
Cute bear!

Bros, I want to find a method for camping shelter that works for my needs. Here's my situation:

>Motorbike camping
>I'm a cheap fuck
>I don't want to be 100% out of the elements but I at least want some protection from bugs and rain
>A lot of my camping is in places where there are very few trees so can't use a hammock
>I want it to pack small but it doesn't necessarily have to be ultralight
>This will be used for spring/summer camping in the western states
>This will also be used with a foam pad and sleeping bag

So basically I want a budget set up for minimalist camping which is not a hammock. Does anyone have any suggestions? I currently use a two man tent but the pack-size is big and it takes a while to set up. It's fine for winter but for summer I want to go very minimal and experience a different way of camping.

legiterally this. was at walmart the other day and was really surprised how small the 3p ozark trail tent packs down to. pretty heavy and not the most durable but its 25 bucks, you could go through 10 of them before you reach the cost of a good backpacking tent.
I bought an Alps Lynx 1 man tent lads. It was $85. Thanks for the help
>Alps Lynx 1
I was just about to post and recommend a Lynx 2. I've had mine for several years with no fuss.

Any fellow ontario leafbros here? I want to go solo camping for a few weeks during this lockdown. I want to be as isolated as possible from everyone. I was thinking Algonquin, but I'm not too sure, since admittedly I'm not too knowledgeable on good spots. Does anyone have any suggestions? All I really want is to be isolated and near water. Thanks frens

You'll have better luck on crownland then national or provincial parks. I camp and canoe on McCrae lake which I love but this year who knows how many people will be going /out/ due to lockdown. They said camping bookings are up by 100% in Ontario due to normies but that's probably just reservation sites unlike crown land.

Yeah i was confused because last i heard all camping was stopped for quarantine in leafland even on crownland
I'm not a leaf so i dont keep up
If you invest a few more hours drive the area between the sault and wawa is golden for camping fishing, hiking you name it
Algonquin is closed every April and early May for flooding, also they're busier than ever with all the new people who want to get /out/ during lockdowns

Why the fuck should I ever go outside knowing these murderous things could kill you at any moment in a single swipe. Or even worse, just take their time and slowly eat your face off.

Dying as part of the food chain is my biggest fear
Bears generally don't go near humans. It helps if you are noisy innawoods so they know you're coming and leave you alone. In terms of actual bear attack bear spray is ideal, and a good handgun with some practice can save your ass. It also helps to bring a buddy along whether it's a dog or a friend.

As far as bears go Black bears are the most common, and hardly ever attack. If they do attack it's because they can't find anything else to eat. Being loud usually scares them off. grizzlies are more dangerous, but that's usually because you're encroaching on their territory, and they see you as a challenge. Bear spray is best on these guys, but a big bore gun (and I can't stress this enough, some practice drawing and firing) can put them down.

You're much more likely to be attacked by a moose, or in some cases a mountain lion. And big cats can be easily dealt with.

You're fucking retarded if you're afraid of bears. Just follow all the rules with how you store your food and the only real bears you have to worry about are grizzlies. Black bears are just oversized raccoons.

If bears make you wet your pants never get in a car again because it will much sooner kill you than old yogi.
i bought some book about bear attacks and it's only really made me fear them less knowing that like every case was someone being retarded because they kept engaging a bear or generally lacked experience in dealing with them. only animal that's made me act a pussy irl was when i accidentally stepped within a foot of a rattlesnake way in the backcountry - venomous shit like that scares me much more cuz (depending on the snake and how deep you're in the woods) one bite and you're finished. but the simple remedy to that is to keep your distance from bushes and if you ever go in them stick to the sections with the most space and stay vigilant.

Good afternoon,

When looking for hammock options I as well ran across hammocks from china (both on Aliexpress & Ebay) that have a bug-net & rainfly setup, which works more like a tent or bivy, with tent poles and all, and apparently can be set up on the ground as a freestanding bivy/ tent as well.

These are examples:



I however were able to find nowhere any reviews for this style of hammock. So does anybody here have experience with these? I am especially interested in the quality & in whether the poles interfere with fixing an underquilt to it, but overall experiences - if anybody has them - or links to preexisting reviews (especially on YT) are welcome as well

I just use a 20 yearold kelty tent
thanks mate
I'd pick the Klymit because the material looks like it's more durable, and I like Klymits sleeping pads.

The extra weight probably comes from the carabiners and Daisy chain tree straps. I heard good things about daisychains but after getting a set I decided they were too heavy for backpacking. I use some good nylon straps and figure 8 knots around some lightweight 12kn carabiners.

I would recommend maybe finding a hammock with a bug net if you are in masquito country.

hey /out/
don't know which board to ask this on. if i don't find an answer here, i'll try /sci/

so i love listening to crickets in the evening, my yard has always had them but for the last 3 years, they seem to have disappeared. no change in vegetation or anything. maybe its just part of the insect extinction in progress.

so how do i attract crickets to my yard? google is no help, it just warns not to buy them from pet stores and release them in the wild, as they may be an invasive species.

More taller grass for them to live in. See if anyone near you sprayed for bugs recently. If they did, burn their house down in the night.
Buy some from your local pet store and let them loose in your room. You can listen to them all night.
You should probably try >>>/an/
I think it has a lot to do on local weather patterns, here in Australia the cicadas were literally deafening over the summer in my local area because we suddenly had a huge amount of rain after years of drought

One last thread before all the snow melts and we go back to being coomers for 8 months.

Where's everyone finishing their season? I'm heading down to Monarch pass to ski backcountry this weekend, then down to Telluride the next weekend for resort/backcountry.

Have been seeing the Enforcer being shilled a lot in this past few years — seems I will have to try those next season will put them up there on my list. As far as reviews go the Kästles have a reputation of being more hard charging skis with not-playful shaping. I enjoy ski testing anyways so yeah can‘t wait to get to test at least the Nordicas!
Tomorrow's the last day of my mountain's season and I'm working. Snow has gone to shit recently so I'm not too bummed, but would've been nice to get one more full day in. At least I'll be able to get in a few runs on my breaks
>As far as reviews go the Kästles have a reputation of being more hard charging skis with not-playful shaping

I haven't skied dozens of pairs nor do I get paid by ski brands to promote their brand/call out inadequacies in others, but the Kastle BMX 105 is more playful than the Nordica Enforcer Free 104 imo.

For what it's worth, my daily driver 95% of the time inbounds is usually the Icelantic Nomads or the BMX, I feel comfortable hitting any terrain hard in either, but slightly prefer the nomads if there is fresh snow.

The UP is generally great and the people are cool but normies are starting to flock more. I lived in Chicago and went on backpacking trips in the Porkies every year the last decade and crowds are getting worse. I last went in October and it fucking sucked - I just want to be alone and take mushrooms by myself innawoods. I moved to CA a few months ago and even though it is pozzed the /out/ is great.

I'll take this bait
LOL quality post

Is there any possible way for me to make money off of livestock if I have a small lot of land out the back? Or would keeping livestock just be a money sink? I don’t mind either way as it’s a hobby I would like to pick up.

I was thinking something that can graze more easily off the land such as some sheep or a couple of goats. I have 0 experience with this and only a half acre of land, so if anyone could help me out with some advice or material that would be great.

i want a riding yak.
>half an acre
Looks like you're gonna be limited to chickens, rabbits or mini goats.
You’re not going to be able to run a profitable agriculture business on a half acre. If you’re trying to make some cash, your best bet these days would be agro-tourism. Get something popular, like llamas, and charge people to pet them, take photos with them, etc.

My friend has a fairly large acreage in the south of England that his family used for bovine farming for generations but it was bleeding cash so he converted it into a petting zoo and he’s making a profit for the first time in years. Makes an absolute killing renting some of his animals out for TV adverts, apparently, especially his pigs.
Dont have experience with selling but if i was in your shoes i think getting a bunch of quail and selling eggs to fancy upscale restaurants would be your best bet.
Non livestock options would be selling things like herbs, microgreens, and mushrooms to these resturants.
Try chickens or turkeys, you can have a couple of nigerian dwarf goats. The goats would be small enough to warrant being on a half acre.
Sheep wouldn't be a good option imo, because they need more space and you just don't want a couple. They don't really do well with just 2, and half an acre isn't enough for more than that. I would get chickens or turkeys though in that situation. Good luck!
