Re: Escape & Evasion kits

If you will use fishing line, go with a mono line (such as a fire-wire) over a braided line. My preference only.

Re: snares

Trapping is an art into itself. It's not especially difficult, but knowledge of the animal and the local area will greatly increase your odds. Wire snares work very well, and if positioned correctly will harvest any game you want. Given the choice between a wire snare or a conibear, I'd take the con...

Re: Canteen ?

Those bottles are great - stainless... need to check that, SIGG bottles are aluminum with a baked in lining. They do have a series of Stainless but its only .4L and the top is one of those lever locks, no threads. You are completely correct - I got it mixed up with a different stainless bottle I pi...

Re: Canteen ?

I got my wife a few of the SIGG bottles after the big recyclable 7 scare - she's preggo and I will bend to concerns of possible safety issues, founded or otherwise. Those bottles are great - stainless, don't leak, won't hold smell/taste from different liquids. Heavier than I'd like, and the lack of ...

Re: My shoe survival kit

With what my feet go in and through on a daily basis, I'll pass.

Almost all those items could fit comfortably in my pants pocket and be a LOT less obtrusive - and draw even less attention.

Re: Modular tent system?

I believe Eureka made a piece that would join the Timberline/timberlite series, so instead of a vestibule per tent the entrances are shared with a common entry point.

Not MOLLE capable or tacticool for the pseudo-militia, but I've got a couple of their packs and swear by them.

Re: Mixed Camo Patterns vs One Pattern?

Sticks and Limbs is more a single shad variant of the original Predator pattern. While the boxstore HD camo's are all the rage for current media, there are many "open" camo patterns that I use while hunting. Some are: Predator Camo (I prefer the Spring Green/ Fall Grey / and now discontinued Fall Br...

Re: Possible Emergency UL Shelter?

I know, I know - I need to clarify - I don't like open pitch tarps (standard A frame, para wing style, etc) setups that have open walls on more than two sides. :? I don't have any problems with using a setup like that for cooking under, or to quickly get out of the weather. I don't like sleeping und...

Re: Possible Emergency UL Shelter?

have you considered the gatewood cape ? Its a squeeze for two, but is full protection in a more versatile design. KISS - that's PERFECT. Exactly what I'm after - most of my gear is wool/rainproof, but this looks much more usable in various scenarios. The other person (rare that they'd be there in a...

Re: Deer Season

Got two in the freezer right now, one with my recurve and one with my compound. Missed a dandy 10 point eariler this year at 8yrds, sent the arrow flat over his back and gave him a haircut. I've seen a couple good bucks wandering now, the ruts getting close and the weather's turning. They're out the...

Possible Emergency UL Shelter?

Hello everyone, new guy - first post was over in introductions, so bear with me - I'm looking to prep for a trip out to CO for a hunting trip next year. I have what I consider to be an adequate shelter (Eureka TimberLite 2) for near full four season use (I say near because while I have had it out in...

Hello from the North!

Just wanted to say hello from up north in Wisconsin! I'm primarily a hunter and outdoor's nut that enjoys camping with friends and family. I don't consider myself a thru-hiker (my brother sure is), but wandering around the northwoods and many beautiful areas of the US have become a favorite past tim...
