Just curious what you use for hunting set up. My outfit is usually this.

Pistol belt with 2 canteens butt pack, knife and camel back. Depending if I am rifle or Archery hunting terrain depends on what I put in the butt pack. I keep majority of items ie engineer tape, water purification etc in butt back. I know it is a lot of water to carry but it sucks to be out of water. I usually stalk hunt and do not hunt from a stand.

Would never even think of cutting this handsome critter to the ground! After all, he sleeps outside my patio at night, keeps away the unlawfuls...and, greets me for coffee each morning with that confused," Don't know who you are but okay your not gonna shoot me look!". LOL:D

Could never harm him...besides, he likes me! :lifter

Lol Rita, except he knows he's safe! Even the doe's who come over in droves during the day know they can roam without fear...haha.

And I'm just in my PJ's, no pointy toe boots required for this bunch, lol.

Malcom McCann from the Claremont college system might be a good person to consult for some good information on hunting as it applies to modern day America (http://tsl.news/opinions/7106/).

It would seem, according to maLc0m, that this entire thread reeks of white privilege. Pomona College, Pitzer College, Scripps College, Harvey Mudd College, Claremont McKenna College are all a consortium of colleges in…
…you guessed it, Southern California that publish “The Student Life” which is a liberal student newspaper that graces the poor ignorant student body with priceless gems of pseudo-wisdom and SJW brainwashing. Notably, Pitzer Outdoor Adventure (POA) and On the Loose (OTL) are two of the best funded outdoor programs in the Claremont College consortium and both of these programs are open to ALL students.

Of course there is something nefarious going on…
Most of the participants are white!
White privilege as it relates to the great outdoors apparently prevents people of color from enjoying the outdoors. The esteemed Malcom McCann ‘mansplains it this way: "Historically, white people in imperialist conquests have appropriated land as their own. North America rightfully belongs to indigenous communities, yet it has been taken away from them by force. Consequently, a false sense of ownership of nature permeates white America."

Clearly “hunting” fits into this paradigm of white privilege and the continued exploitation of racial boundaries. Personally, I think Malcom could kick it up a notch if he also mentioned that hunting in America was also a form of cultural misappropriation. The imperialist white privileged devils locked away all of the native-Americans so the European invaders could hunt white tail and mule deer for sport. Even worse, we evil euro trash invaders mock the native Americans by bow hunting across the fruited plains while the indigenous communities spend deer-season locked away in their giant tribal casinos.

John Muir. Theodore Roosevelt. William Dickson Boyce. Henry David Thoreau. James W. Whittaker. All of them, white men, robbing the entirety of the North American continent from people of color.

Furthermore, have you ever noticed that national parks are located far away from the big cities? It’s to keep people of color from enjoying the outdoors.
Part of the trick is to pretend it is simply a matter of economics – but the inhabitants of Appalachia are mostly white Christians of European descent.
WHITE CHRISTIANS OF EUROPEAN DESCENT
…all of them, abusing their white privilege that allows them to enjoy the great outdoors.

These monsters have hidden behind claims of poor education, faltering regional economy, and the cultivation of convenient stereotypes when the reality is, they are using white privilege to keep people of color from going outside.

Appalachian white privilege has been using their reputation as moon-shiners, uneducated and unrefined family-feuder’s enjoying the outdoors and all-the-while, people of color are being left behind !!!!!!!!!
The Hatfield’s and McCoy’s weren’t having a generational feud – they were conspiring to keep people of color from shooting a white-tail deer !!!!

Stingy fucking hillbillies!!!!


Well the gig is up – thanks to the Woodward and Bernstein quality journalism of Malcom McCann, we ALL know the truth: “Due to the predominance of whiteness in the outdoors, people of color have been denied access to the outdoors.”


Let that sink in - thanks to academia, we now know about the predominance of whiteness in the outdoors.

In all my "whiteness" I go forth every year into the great outdoors to conquer whatever animal I have purchased a license or tag for and I do my damndest to make sure I kill something as that piece of paper I paid for doesn't taste very good.

In that vein, this year I have tried something different and have purchased a surplus zip front chest rig. On my left side of the rig a pouch that holds my rangefinder, my shooting sticks/bipod attaches up high with a grimlock and snaps in low so it doesn't swing around, and a flashlight that slides thru the molle. On the right I have binocular pouch, knife, game saw, and a small roll of tape (for attaching the tag to the critter).
It has been working very well so far. Being a guy who grew up wearing an LBE and later in life spending time in a plate carrier gear set up, it doesn't feel out of place out all. I will be upgrading next year and plan on adding additional pouches for radio/gps and canteens. I will probably purchase a better chest rig but this one has worked ok.
Most of the guys I hunt with throw a pack on yet with this set up everything is right there for me with no digging. A general purpose pouch on this rig could hold candy bars, battieries etc..

Box if I had a corporation I would be after you for an event speaker or CEO, as ever so thought provoking saturated with entertainment, alas...

So a few thoughts: Cherokee, NC adjacent to the Great Smokey Mountain National Park, in all it's regalia to include Harrah's and the many out buildings and accutraments of modern tribal living...although it's kind of tough hunting there, I believe it's called a felony, although they do have elk.


The park itself, after being appropriated from the native peoples was then appropriated from the menacing Europeans, then appropriated by the logging and paper mill industries who then had it appropriated by the federal government...the side story with places like nearby Lake Fontana include appropriations by the TVA who philanthropically deposited pennies on the dollar into many veterans bank accounts while they were away fighting WWII the flooded it all in a scheme that exists to this day called eminent domain... Put that in your pipe and smoke it.
A brief history of WNC.
The details create a stir in everyone's circle...

Went bow hunting once in unfamiliar territory, figured no problem as the sun and stars will guide me. Hunted until dark, then the clouds arrived…………. That added an hour to an already long walk. Lesson learned. I’ve never been “misoriented” hunting before and never since. Damn clouds.

Besides gun, compass is my first go to item in my little camelback. Knife (2x knives, little and big), water, pistol, watch with small compass, real compass, lighter, 550 cord, woobie, scooby snacks. And now, I’d have a phone, turned off, as an added safety measure.

Shot a nice 8 point out my kitchen window last week. Almost impossible to get lost.

Shot a nice 8 point out my kitchen window last week. Almost impossible to get lost.Ditto. My setup is a comfortable chair, sticks, good glass & a favorite 7-08 that I know very very well. On the lee side of the tractor shed thank you. (Done with that shooting a nice one in the valley and haulin' his butt back up.) Never fails on a Sunday, when half the woods on the ridge stirs around headed back to the house to watch the Nat'l Felons League they move the critters my way - damn near like room service.

My other half called last night to say he shot a 7 Pointer and 2 Does...I like to think I contributed to the kill since I helped load the truck up and down the basement stairs 5-6 trips, hauling gear, bags, deer stand seat pads, supplies, blankets, pillows, backpacks, rifles, more gear, oh and food for a week...LOL....:D

I'm getting old so I can't walk the hills like I used to do. This is what I use for hog hunting. I have a back pack that I keep in the truck that has flashlights, knives, appropriate clothing, rain gear, etc. I have two pairs of binoculars, 10X50's for sitting and glassing. I carry small 8X25's that fit in my shirt pocket in case I do go walking. I have a Swarovski Rangefinder. Rifle is a Winchester M70 in .270 win. On occasion, I carry a Ruger Security Six in .357 Mag.

Killed a smallish 4 point (that's an 8 point in other parts of the country) mule deer late evening yesterday. The area was wide open consisting mainly of sage brush and grass. Some rims and coulees and ground swells provide the only real cover. Seen them from the road but the wind was crazy strong (30+ mph) and an upwind stalk wasn't going to work. Drove a couple of miles and walked back up almost 2 1/2 miles to come up from down wind. I expected the one I seen to be a wide 2 point and was not going to shoot it if it was. About 800 yards out I had 30 minutes of legal light left and walking towards them in open view. They were all feeding and although the wind had dropped considerably at this time it was still blowing pretty good. I got to within 220 yards and watched them for a bit and decided I would just go ahead and take the shot even though I was after a bigger one. Today is the last day of season and who knows what it would have brought. My .300 win mag dropped it with one shot. By the time I finished gutting it, it was very dark (made the shot with 15 minutes shooting light left). Starting on my 2 mile hike down the road to go get the pickup I thought hard about having canteens as I was really thirsty by this time. I did get a ride the last 200 yards by the only vehicle that came by:D
All in all a successful hunt in an area that is tough to hunt but is known for large muley bucks. My carry set up worked but definitely need to add water.

Sent out some pieces with hunters this year. One got one of two tags for Mt Goat in a given area...he stalked them for two weeks caching his gear and returning every three days until he got his number two...hope he passes on some images.

The second hunter went for Elk, here are a few images:
