I just checked out the trailer for this game. It's almost enough for me to want to get a gaming system now. :lol:

Re: Ridiculous Zombie Themed Products

I was at Wally world looking for my usual issue of Backwoodsman when I stumbled across "Zombie Nation". I guess I'm a sucker for marketing schemes :/ I bought it. I really did like the article on the EMP proof land rover and kinda got chills over the tacticool Mossberg 30-30 lever action featured in...

Re: Bowmanship Thread

the Turok series of games used bows and I saw a write up for the game Cyrsis 3 that features the use of a hi tech compound.

Re: Opinions on hunting broadheads

I've had good luck with just plain 2 bladed Magnus broadheads, they're easy to sharpen and affordable enough that it doesn't eat your budget up to use a few just for practice points.

Re: Bowmanship Thread

NXP I got the qwickie quiver but it rattles a bit too much for me. Found and old 90's PSE quiver that's in good condition and it's pretty quite and stable. It's only four arrows but that's plenty for my needs. I don't want to spend much money on this bow, it's just my beat the shit out of bow.

Re: Stealth hunting/gathering

Permaculture/wild gardening are options I've considered but without a definite BOL in mind I haven't looked into it as close as I could. I'm pretty sure I could graze on native flora until something in the fauna group fell prey to me. Seems most people can't tell the difference between wild edibles ...

Re: Stealth hunting/gathering

any method that's quiet is a given. Fishing and trapping come to mind over hunting but any opportunity to put food on the table shouldn't be passed. I'm fond of bowhunting on the ground myself but I've put a lot of thought into air guns too. Also entering and existing your foraging area is a big con...

Stealth hunting/gathering

I've been putting a lot of thought into this subject for the last couple of years. If you're going to supplement your stores with any kind of wild harvest, how do you intend to do it without drawing the attention of others who would either compete with you for what resources there are or worse take ...

Gecko'45 is legendary but few can match the famous Gunkid for sheer volume of bunk and bs. I think he's still serving time for parole violations.

Re: Bowmanship Thread

I added another bow to my collection. It's the PSE Mustang T/D. 45#@28" and is a fairly inexpensive bow at $209 plus tax. The finish is a little rough and from what I suspect it's made for PSE by either Samik or Ragim. I like it. It'll make a good all round bow for roving, small to medium game and b...

Re: When you see someone with 5.11 Gear or any brand Name Ge

I see a few folks around here wearing tacticool clothing, I do have a few pairs of Propper Tactical pants and shirts but I end up looking more like a Boy Scout leader than a bad ass. As for the elastic waistbands, well I'm one of those poor bastards with a 35 inch waist so my choices are a snug 34 w...

Re: Bowmanship Thread

This has been an interesting thread so far, still haven't gotten an answer to who all shoots three fingers under but thats ok. I'm used to being passed over as a typical ZS thread tends to meander around like a drunken Scotchman with his kilt over his head. :lol:

Re: Doomsday Preppers (2nd) 02/07/2012 Nat Geo

I prefer the minimalist approach myself so I can relate to Nyerges. I'd rather look like a poor, eccentric, almost homeless person while moving around in an urban setting than all tricked out like shorty shorts in Houston. There are some real interesting ideas presented in this show. I like it and I...

Re: .410 shotgun

I've shot the Judge in .410 before and for a 15 yd (maybe 20 yd at the best) rabbit gun its fine. It seems better for rattlesnakes, intruders in the bedroom and other close range propositions.

Re: Bowmanship Thread

A flecthing jig is a good investment, making your own arrows is pretty rewarding. Mine aren't exactly things of beauty but they function. I got too many 4 inch feathers right now to invest in buying another lot of 5 inch but my jig can be set to a four fletch configuration. So I guess next go around...

I swung over to the local Bass Pro Shop to look around this morning. They only have a few recurves in stock and non of them seem to have strings, not surprising the guy at the archery counter wouldn't let me try one anyway even if they had strings. Did use their crappy little bow for checking drawle...

Re: .410 shotgun

In order to fire a .45 LC out of a .410 you need to have the choke removed. Otherwise you stand to damage the muzzle of the gun.

Re: Bowmanship Thread

I'm making the transition to traditional archery. I've learned that my stance is more compressed for lack of a better term so my usual 31 inch draw length with a long ATA compound is closer to 29-291/2 inches with my recurves. Also learned that my 31" 340 spined carbon arrows work well enough with b...
