They’re a protected species.

Blacks are considered a noxious nuisance, so no closed season, no bag limit. Best of all, you can hunt them with any legal weapon or method you want, even over bait.

Serious question, but where do you hunt? With that equipment it looks like you're not tagging...

Ive been riding my whole life on the trails. Harescrambles and enduros. But I've always dreamed about taking that type of equipment into the woods and setting up camp for a week or so, bag some game and survive off the land. Be it a peashooter and squirrels or going out and bagging a deer.

Hey /out/, I realize this may be a more /k/ question but I want your perspective on the matter:
What do you guys recommend as far as a good longarm (as opposed to a pistol/sidearm) for home/self defense, hunting/innawoods, and survival; preferably without breaking my wallet.

The standard AR15 5.56 carbine/rifle always comes to mind due to ammo and gun prices/availability; unfortunately it is illegal to hunt deer with them (just don't get caught, r-right?)

.357mag carbine/rifle might be neat to share ammunition with a sidearm while still being legal.

12ga shotgun sounds pretty versatile with ability to take birds, small game/varmints, and up to deer and bears; though being a skellington the recoil might break me.

Are 'takedown' guns a meme? Conceal/packability might be cool for innawoods.
ie Taylor Co. 357mag Alaskan takedown

12 gauge can do everything
the gun is cheap
ammunition is cheap
as long as you don't need to take a shot more than 75 yards
or 150 with a scope. maybe 200
>>
>>1130583
get a 12 gauge
everyone should have

you will feel the recoil. if you are using some hot hard kicking loads and you don't hold it right you can get a bruise on your shoulder. but don't worry about it
>>
>>1130587
>>1130592
Mossberg 500 and Remington 870 seem to be the go-to recommendations, but they seem rather large for self-defense (maneuvering inside house). Any thoughts on bullpups like the Kel-tec KSG?
>>
>>1130275
>he fell for the scout meme
>>
nope, I just hike, camp and backpack

I tried hunting back in 2012 but I didn't try to control the recoil at all, and I hit myself in the face with the stock of the gun

Always!
I’ve tried my hand at bow hunting this year, haven’t seen much but it’s been too fucking warm so the deer aren’t moving much
Maybe tomorrow
>>
>>1130633
Huh?

Works perfectly for the areas that I hunt in.
>>
>>1130745
Then so would literally anything else, because a forward-mounted LER/EER scope is literally the single worst possible way to mount a magnified optic.
>>
>>1130764
Why do you care?
>>
>>1130615
Just buy an 18 inch barrel. Remington and Mossberg both sell combo package shotguns that will include a long barrel for hunting and a short barrel for home defense. literally takes two seconds to swap barrels.
>>
>>1127836
They're surprisingly easy to get here (in Aust) if you do pest destruction or primary producer. Fill out a form, send it off, get approved and just buy one.
I sort of looked at it for a while trying to justify it.
But figured the amount of fuck arsing around to get it to work on my semi-autos, adjusting gas pressure, dicking about with barrel threads, maybe some sub-sonic rounds and wearing them out. Just couldn't be bothered, most of the on the job, inna bush shooting I do is more or less crashing around, murdering as many pigs/goats/dogs/foxes and pussy cats as we can in as short amount of time or in a helicopter terrorising them from the air. Being quiet and sneaky is less of an issue.

Good luck! Yeah I've been bowhunting for about a year (I did practice archery for a year beforehand to get my confidence up), still haven't gotten anything, but i've been super close. It's definitely not easy, especially when you mainly hunt public land, but stick with it, worse case scenario is that you get to spend a day out in the woods.

I'm also a big fan of suppressors for hunting. Really helps confuse the animals as to where the shot is coming from. The lower noise and lower recoil is also a bonus.

No, in my country you need to pay at least 1000 bucks and take an extensive test to get a hunting permit. Then you need to find someone who has land to hunt on and ask older hunters to tag along. I plan on getting my licence soon, because I finally earn enough to pay for that shit.

But speaking of taking tests, how is it in the US? Apart from legal mumbo jumbo they put an emphasis on only shootin "proper" game, i.e. not too young, not pregnant etc. and killing it as quickly as possible, e.g. by shooting the lungs for best meat or head for quickest kill possible. Also, you are required by law to kill everything you hurt, even if you just hit its leg, you have to pursue it until you can find and kill it.
>>
>>1136554
The US is very relaxed compared to those rules.

To get a hunting license in my state you have to be 50ish years old to be exempt from taking the hunters education course. The course isn't long or difficult at all though, maybe 15ish hours of class time and was free.

For actually harvesting animals each location and species has their specific rules for what is and isn't legal. It's usually along the lines of: any buck, any antlerless or a certain point minimum or maximum.

There's no law saying you must kill what you hurt or not to kill pregnant animals etc. Of course they time hunting seasons so that you won't be hunting pregnant animals for the most part. They do encourage good hunting ethics like that, but they aren't laws.

God damn it, I hate this fucking sperg country.
I really want to go hunting but I also live in Germany. It's fucking ridiculous what you need to do to get a permit.
They tell you hunting is a "privilege". No you fucking assholes, it is the most natural thing to do and everybody should be allowed to go hunting.
I'm probably more skilled with my bow and have more knowledge about wildlife than most official hunters. But fuck that, you need to spend at least 1000 (one thousand) euros to be allowed to do it. Oh and did I mention that bow hunting is not allowed altogether? Something that was done literally for the last few millenia all over the world.
>>
>>1141607
Really? So you can legally hunt with a gun with enough paperwork/time/money but you can't bowhunt?

I shouldn't be too surprised, the state I live in, In Australia has 0 legal public land hunting, thankfully most of the state is farmland and farmers are generally pretty OK having you hunt pests on their land.
>>
>>1141611
Bowhunting is prohibited on account of it being too ancient. The reasoning is that guns can kill quicker and more efficient (which isn't true if you are good with your bow).
There is, however, a growing number of people advocating bowhunting, it's just the old fudds blocking everything.
Don't get me wrong, I think the idea of Waidgerechtigkeit makes a lot of sense and is really important, but if I can drop an animal on the spot with a bow just as I could with a rifle, why not?
>>
"Rifle hunting" is hardly hunting at all. It's simply a matter of hiking around until you see something and shooting it at very long range.

Bowhunting is the master race outdoor pursuit.
>>
>>1141611
Bow hunting is illegal in most of Europe afaik. It's certainly illegal here in Italy, as well as in Germany like the other anon said.
I don't think it'll become legal anytime soon, the animal huggers would raise a neverending ruckus.

Is handgun hunting a meme? I hear some people say they can take low/mid-tier game with 9mm, .357mag, or 10mm
>>
>>1143575
Given that with similar barrel lengths of about 4.5" the .357 produces twice the energy of the 9mm they aren't really comparable and when you factor in the .357 responding better to longer barrels you have handguns which aren't suitable for carrying but can deliver energy close to a .222 rem.

I wouldn't myself but assuming you got close enough I can't see why a .357 wouldn't work at least as well as historic lever hunting cartridges(think 44-40 or 32-20) but in a handgun package.

Well the 10mm is a better round out of short barrels than the .357 but I've 0 experience with it against game.

I'm interested in hunting but damn is it expensive. If I actually want to shoot something in Austria I'm gonna have to take a 3-month course that costs 860€, reading material and exam excluded. I talked to a guy who introduced me to the sport told me when he did it it cost him about 5k Schilling, which is a bit under 400 euros. How did shit get so expensive?
Also, is there anything I should know about hunting before I bite the bullet and sign up for the course? It would make a pretty good christmas present, but I don't want to half-ass and regret this.
