Anybody have any good paternal stories in the great outdoors with your dad/grandad/uncle? My grandpa passed last month and he was the biggest influence on my love of hunting and fishing (even his coffin was lined with camo). Shot many a dove and caught many a speck with him. He left me a few of his rifles/shotguns and flyrods. Pics from January of last year with my dad, we caught about 60 specks in 2 hours at the small pond on our farm, had a huge fish fry at my grandads that night with men from our church. One of the best memories with my pop.Share some of y’all’s

I just moved to Denver, guys. What the fuck do I do now? I was expecting a trendy little city nestled in the mountains, not this sprawling urban slough on the edge of a featureless prairie, with Arby's and Target as far as the eye can see. I drove around Golden last week and all that mesa stuff looks super boring. Then I went to Boulder to hike around the Flatirons, and the trails were literally gridlocked with foot traffic.
Without making a huge road trip out of it, where can I get away into the woods?
Also, I'm from the east coast so I don't know how federal land works. I want to disappear into the national forest with my shotgun for a week, but google shows conflicting information re: what's allowed.
Also anyone want to meet up?

Maine would be the only one. Vermont and New Hampshire are actually small states and compared to their population they are pretty full.
Vermont has over 100k more people then Wyoming but Wyoming is 10 times larger then Vermont. Seclusion is better in Wyoming/Montana/Idaho/Dakotas, that or Alaska

Of course not, there are no liberals or leftists in Colorado.
Gun ownership is not going down. No new gun laws, magpul never left the state.

Face it, Colorado, Washington, and Oregon are becoming more and more leftist and becoming more unfriendly to gun owners. Gun ownership is going down in said states.

Mountain dweller here

it was -5F this morning and the mountains are snowed the fuck in. It didn't go above freezing all day, even though it was sunny. You picked the wrong time to try to get into the woods. The real wilderness is now the domain of hunters and cross-country skiers. Denver folk don't go in the woods this time of year. You'll die up here if you don't know what you're doing.

Pic related, my drive to work this morning.
>>
lmao looks like they tried to have as few people as possible in that pic and there are still over a fucking dozen in it. Picked a bad place to be, friendo.
Denver is a vacation spot, not a place to live. Should have gone into the mountains or down to at least down to Colorado Springs if you wanted to be in the state. Even then that's a pretty crowded place.
Do some fucking research next time you move somewhere. Literally looking at google maps would have been enough to tell you it's crowded as fuck and on the prairie's edge.

Climate change is just a scapegoat that is easy to wave around when you need more votes or want to raise taxes.
While the effects are going to impact many people, we'll get by alright for the forseeable future, barring a shutdown of the Atlantic Current.

The real bogeymen of the 21st Century are rampant overpopulation, dwindling freshwater reserves due to overconsumption, and plastics accumulation.

I'm a little worried about wild life as the last thing I would want is to run into a black bear in the middle of winter.
But then again I think being coupled with being able to climb urban environments so easily and the fact im a human I should be fine.

Questions that don't deserve their own thread!

I feel like a dick for doing this, but I have alot of questions and I felt it would be best to just compile them all in the same OP.
Basicly, I'm a total beginner when it comes to /out/ing, only slept in the forest a few times during childhood trips, did not serve in the military so never got any experience from there.

I want to start going /out/, but heres what I'm curious about first:

>dangerous animals
How do I avoid them? What are some precautions to take? When you are /out/, do you actively look out for dangerous fauna, or do you perhaps have a routine you do to keep them away?
Myself I try to sing to keep them away, and when I get too self cautious about my shit-tier voice, I clap my hands occasionally.

>How does one truly go /out/?
I do take some trips along popular mountainpaths close to my home, some trips taking 4-6 hours, but I want more, I want to spend a weekend or something in the wild, but have no idea how.
Do you just "get lost" in the forest on purpose, like, where do you even go? What do you bring (yadda yadda, fire-supplies, knife, first-aid etc) do you have any UNCONVENTIONAL suggestions you find really helpful to bring?

The smells of /out/ are one of the huge draws. Head out hiking and camping somewhere with pine trees in the heat, it's amazing. Also just breathing the cleaner air of the wilderness is like aromatherapy.

Should I just get a shitty mountain bike from Walmart? All I wanna do is ride around the neighborhood, maybe in the woods a bit.

Id recommend looking on Craigslist, you can get a real bike instead of a bicycle shaped object at walmart for probably the same price. It will actually be pleasant to ride instead of constant creaking and parts breaking.

the bikes arrive at the walmart store disassembled in a box off the truck, and before they go on the shelf on the sales floor they are assembled by some minimum wage fuck who doesn't care if the brakes work or not or the fork is on backwards or if the front wheel will come off as you're riding at full speed causing you to faceplant into the street. stay the fuck clear of walmart bicycles.
>>1380247
is correct, walmart bicycles will not be enjoyable to ride. start with craiglist test rides or befriend the lads at a local bike shop and get their advice
>>
If it's something you plan on actually keeping (IE your not moving away) you should really consider getting a better bike. I spent around 375ish on a Trek, and absolutely love it, best bike i've ever had. So much easier to peddle, very smooth and comfortable. For sure worth it

here's the actual answer, from a real fisherman.

club it on the head to stun. look it in the face, take your knife, insert blade directly above the eyes. This should result in near instant death. Slit the throat and let it bleed out and fillet.
>>
>>1379618
Considering I said they are the only fish I am disgusted by, don't you think that implies I have experience coming in contact with a variety of species? I catch and harvest and consume dozens of species every year. Carp suck.
>>
>>1378742
So you don't like your beef or pork or chicken bled either? It's just blood.
>>
>>1380343
Salmon as an example bleed better if you fill instead of latch.
Also, from a commercial fisherman, you don't have to give a shit if it's dead. If you want to bleed your meat then bleed, otherwise just let it soffocate. I latch tuna because their heart is almost under their head, but be careful not to go too far back or the fish will shit its heart out of the latch.

Putting a feeler out there -
Any of you interested in meeting up for a weekend camp/hike in one of the eastern national forests?
I'm planning on car-camping in either Allegheny, Monongahela, or Wayne National Forest sometime this fall.
Dispersed camping is awesome, and if any of you guys wanna tent you have the capability as well.
