Naked and Marooned

Naked and Marooned 18 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
So after people saying over and over again that I should watch "naked and Marooned, because it's so real, and it's such a survival show"...and mostly, I'm not that disapointed. It's kinda silly that they make such a big show at the start of the first episode that he spent nine months preparing for this...and then he took many, many days to make fire, and continually consumed raw snails which could be carrying brain parasites...If I were doing 9 months of prep, looking at the local food sources would be step one. The reality is, there are two occasions in the first season he'd most likely have died without medical help, either from his kit or from his emergency kit...and I RESPECT that. This guy has skills, experience, and a lot of tenacity and he almost didn't make it a few times. He does all kinds of stupid shit...his shelter design is over-ambitious, it would have been fine half as tall, with a deeper pitch. He'd have been in in days. He could have had it completed in a day if he'd done his base without braiding his leaves and just tossing a pile of leaves a foot thick over it...but I mean, that's a personal choice thing, and he had other shelter. Whatever. But then It got to the goat. He's been trying to kill a goat for...the entire time he's been on the island...and then he walks along and the goat is "Stuck". Look as this screenshot. It's antler is wrapped, tightly, many, many times in the vine. That is so fucking staged it's not even funny. Thoughts? Am I imagining things, or is the Piss-drinker levels of fakeness?

The /pol/ folk are making noises about a "happening" again, which got me thinking.. 1) Given current events, what is the probability of said happening (World War 3) actually taking place? 2)Say this happening did happen. What are: A- My Chances of survival (irishbro) B- If these chances of survival are low, how can I improve them? I'm asking you guys cause /pol/ is fucking nuts at the best of times

Tarp needed - seeking advice

Tarp needed - seeking advice 17 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hi /out-doorsmen and women! I would like to lighten my gear by trying out a tarp instead of a tent. I know there is a lot of choices available. I know some are extremely cheap, some extremely expensive. Browsing the internet I've already seen tarps that seem too heavy for their size to make sense. Please spread your knowledge. Share the makes and models of tarps that you use. And eventually, help me decide on a tarp I should buy.

Hunting Land Management Thread

Hunting Land Management Thread 13 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hunters: how do you care for the land you enjoy? Do you take any steps to groom it? Plant it? Clear it? This weekend, I'm going out to do some work on a small 6-acre family plot that I get to bowhunt the back 2 acres of. This "back woods" part of the property is basically unmaintained and is part of a 6 acre island of native trees with an intermittent creek in an area dominated by farm fields. My agenda is as follows: >clear debris and sticks from existing game trails >improve bedding areas for whitetail deer >scout for "hunting trees" to perch in >improve stream access for deer and turkey >determine where to place a gravity-fed corn feeder >determine where, if anywhere, to place a ground-blind for turkey What do you do during the off-season to improve your hunt?

Does /out/ know what kind of animals live in woods like these(the picture)? I've had mates tell me nothing lives in them, but others have told me different. I plan on bushcrafting, foraging, hunting for food, etc. I'll use a throwing stick to hunt (legal in the UK) so deer and big animals are out of the question. Squirrels are not allowed, they're mostly red so we can't hunt those. Cheers sc/out/s

Looking for some advice for fishing a nearby rock quarry. The quarry has been private property for years up until last year when it became a state park. There have been a large amount of big fish being pulled out of it and I can't seem to find them. The quarry is very deep in the center (25-30ft) shallow on the south end and northwest bay and mid-deep on the northeast side. The most easily accessible area is the dam on the northeast side which drops to around 15 feet pretty quickly. I fish there with spinners, cranks and minnows and catch a fuck ton of 12-13 inch bass but very few bigger than that. When I fish the northwest bay I catch few bass and alot of nice sized sunfish and occasionally one or two crappie, every one I ever caught was big 14+ inches and rarely catch more than 2 in a trip there. Never fished the south end as it is very shallow and weedy, i'm sure during summer heat there are big bass but I've never tried it as it is hard to access and so shallow and weedy. The bottom is mostly rocky aside from the shallow areas. Does anyone have some tips or strategies for fishing conditions like these?

Hey /out, I really want to get into hiking & mountaineering, and I need your advice about how to go about achieving that. I live in England on the coast and wouldn't at all know where to even begin besides trailing up big hills that aren't that far away from me. Where did you start? Where are you now?
