With the coming promise of venison this deer season, and as the air gets colder, there is no better time for a jerky thread.

Currently I've been using Newman's own cracked pepper marinade bags, and also some Hi- Mountain seasoning with some additional seasoning crushed and dried from the homegrowerman pepper garden. I use an oven at 170 and toothpicks in the rack. I'm looking at dehydrators as well.

As a side note : A buddy of mine has DEC permission to hunt off any Coyotes on his property. Anyone ever eat Coyotes? Jerky?

What would that gearset look like.

I'm thinking

>muzzle loading rifle
>big-ass knife
>adequate clothing
$300 will nab you an entry-level centerfire rifle OR compound bow OR modern inline muzzleloader and enough ammo/arrows and cleaning supplies to last a couple years. If you're in a shotgun-only area $200 will get you a new pump shotgun that's adequate for the job.

Believe it or not you can fully process a deer with a cheap skinning knife and bone saw (Old Timer Sharpfinger, $18, and Outdoor Edge Griz-Saw, $15), but for a beginner something like the Outdoor Edge Wild Pak ($40) will fulfill all needs and last for years.

If rifle hunting you will need at least a blaze orange hat ($5-10 depending on style) if not a vest ($6 for a OSFM cheapo), this will not be needed most places for bow or smokepole.

Clothing is, obviously, going to be region dependent but I hunted for decades and killed dozens of deer with a chink knockoff of a Carhartt coat from my local Fleet Farm ($30) and a cheap cotton hoodie ($8 at walmart) over jeans (you already have these, or at least should) and cotton waffle-weave longjohns ($20 a set at walmart). This got me by in northern Illinios, where it was common for morning temps to be in the single digits during gun season. If you're further north you'll probably need something a bit better insulated for gun season, but bowhunters and southerners kill a lot of deer in jeans and a tee shirt. I've always just worn the work or hiking boots I already had. Yeah, insulated boots would've been nice, but I've always just gotten up and moved around when I got too cold.

No, $400 is not going to get you a gucci setup or Sitka clothing. Yes, it will get you started, and you won't be FORCED to upgrade for years if not decades.
And you will spend the $600 and get nothing for it and blame it on the weather or global warming. Hunting is a hobby, buy your meat at the store it's cheaper and better.
then go away you pessimistic fuck.

This guy's pretty close.

For where I live (south-central Missouri) this is what a gun-season outlay for clothing and gear would look like with no shopping around or hunting for deals.

Or are you just a sedentary office cuck ?

How 2 get job
Any opportunities for seasonal workers from abroad?
Yes. Loads. Come to Australia, they hire in march. You better be tough, cause it ain't the sorta job you do if you're looking for a soft one.

But seriously. 12-15 hour days are normal. And if you're working with scrub bulls you'll run a very real risk of dying if you're slow, either physically or intellectually.

But it's a fantastic job. Plenty of ack packers do it, so you'll be fine.

There's something very special about going to work every day knowing that theres a very good chance you'll get seriously hurt. And it'll make you mentally tough. It's hard stepping into a yard and being hit by a bull and then two seconds later you're ack in there playing with them.

It was my first year, got to ride bulls a few times as well which was a fantastic experience.
Sorry. As for how to get a job. Go onto gumtree.com.au and go to the farming and vetinary section of the jobs.

I literally have been offered four jobs in the last week (finished up working on friday of last week). But I've got the experience and a pretty good rep now.

Just planted some trilliums, ramps, elderberries, american ginseng, and an experimental batch of morel mycellium at my relatives place out in the country. Can't wait to see if I get any results.

I planted 3 1-ounce bags of ramps so I better get a nice patch going.
>from seed

Really, good luck with that. They are a bitch to germinate. Some seed companies acid etch before selling them, so that helps. But, they need acid etching and cold stratification and good nitrogen content in the soil. Otherwise, they can take as long as 2-3 years to germinate under normal conditions.
Yeah, I read that they are quite persnickety. In the case of the elderberries I am not counting on them to grow, this was just an experiment since I needed to spend an extra $10 to get free shipping on my order. If I get even 1 in a few years time I'll be happy.

>no knife thread
Maybe it's for the better but I'm starting one

I'm looking for a good, small carving knife. Something that's easy to handle and can get in those tighter spaces. So far I've narrowed it down to an Ahti Tikka and a Roselli Grandmother knife after a small amount of research. I'm leaning toward the Ahti since they made my current knife and it's excellent quality, but the Roselli seems more what I'm looking for in terms of the blade geometry. Anyone have any input on this? Price is comparable (+/-1$) so I'm not factoring it in

pic related, the Ahti

I've had it happen with my beagle in his older age (so much I started taking a wagon with me to put him in) and once with my current dog, stepped on something and just refused to walk. What is their daily activity like? It might just be too much for them all at once.
I've been seeing so many basic bitches getting Vizslas. Can you shed some insight on why they are the new pumpkin spice latte?
>Mutts are actually the healthiest dogs
Not always. Much better than a BYB but you can still get pretty unlucky with mutts, especially when they are designer breeds.
Could you call animal control or a shelter? that really sucks
That's not a choke collar, it's a prong collar or sometimes called a pinch collar. It's a training tool to get dogs to stop pulling, and oddly enough is often used on dogs with tender trachea because a properly fitted prong puts no pressure on a trachea at all, whereas collars, chokers and even some harnesses can put strain on that part of the neck. I can tell the owner is a faggot though because the prong is on outside of training, it's not fitted properly around the neck and it's too big and falls below where it ideally should be hanging. Prongs are a useful tool but only if you actually know how to use it.
The filter on this is fucking garbage, nice dog though.
Sex really doesn't matter if you get the dog fixed. If not, then females would be easier to train to not run off and shag but are also a bigger liability because you are stuck with puppies if it does get shagged.

Who /brapping while /out// here?
28 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
Anon, I have brapped from the top of mountains

When I go /out/ hiking I will wait at the trail head "stretching" and looking at my map until a cute girl walks by and starts hiking. I will wait another 5-10 minutes so its not like I'm stalking her, then I will start my hike. I will hike fast enough to pass her in a little bit, make a cute comment like, "oh hi again!" Then I will keep hiking until I am ahead enough that she can't see me and I will hide in the bushes. When she passes by my hiding spot I will let out a loud blood curdling fart, vibrating by anal sphincter so hard that my glutes cramp. The female hiker will inevitably be surprised at frst, but when she whiffs my butt pheramoans she jumps in and makes love to me, accepting 3 or more sperm loads. It happens every time.
I have never farted.

Is this true?

>reading comprehension
He was claiming he hiked 20-30 miles in then stayed there 7 days on 3 gallons of water TOTAL. Which works out to 0.428 gallons a day.

The recommended daily intake of water for a "normal" person (not hiking innabush for a week) is 10, 10 ounce servings, 100 ounces, which is 0.78gal. 3 gallons is 4 days' worth of water at sedentary lifestyle levels of activity.
Anybody who's served in Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait, or sub-Saharan Africa drinks at least 3 gallons of water a day because body armor doesn't breathe.

Yes they need to take electrolyte supplements, yes they need to pay attention to their hydration levels, yes water intoxication is a thing.

No, it's not extraordinarily harmful or "near certain death" like you seem to be implying. In 14 years of constant warfare in 2 countries, fewer than 100 servicemembers out of the SEVEN FUCKING MILLION to have deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan have died from heat related injuries (heat stroke/water intoxication/dehydration). More old people die in JUST MIAMI IN ONE YEAR from heat injuries.

I'm used to western states with lots of public land and mountains, wondering how I'll get /out/ without either. What's the flat land like? Where do you go hiking? How are the rivers and great lakes? I know a lot of deer get shot here, but I don't know how the hell you hunt on private lands.

I'll be in Northern IN, Chicago, or Central IL, for reference.

While yes the bead sight is good enough (and I've killed a LOT of deer with an old, 70's vintage 870 Riot cylinder bore), the scope helps a lot especially in low light (provided you get a decent one).

That being said, soo fucking glad I moved to Missouri

I'm over to, but honestly the FOID thing sounds like such a pain in the ass that I probably won't hunt if I'm in Illinois. I'm only moving east for 18-24 months, so I'm probably just spend some extra money and draw a tag back home.

I used to live near Pittsburgh but didn't use mass transit. Seems like it might be tough to get anywhere but city parks with that requirement. If you can find some way to get to Racoon Creek that has plenty of day hike options. My favorite place was Hillman State Park though, since almost no one used it.
