    Hunting Food

    I've taken salami and cheese in the past and still do as a regular staple. The salami can get a little greasy as it heats up, but it's not a big deal to me. The cheese does fine for a few days. Hard cheeses are better then soft ones. Buy the individually wrapped little slices. I knew a guy who...

    New back country hunter. pack weight

    You'll get there in time. Just weigh every single item that you take. As you look at replacing things, get the weights of the new items and the price, and then figure out the weight savings per dollar spent. This will help you decide if replacing said item is really worth it or not (unless you...

    Fat Guy Weekly Weigh In.

    Consistency is key. Even if I'm tired and have no desire to go to the gym, I still do. I may not run for an hour, but I still get about 30 minutes in. Some days I am able to power through and do go the whole hour, and on those days I feel a real sense of accomplishment. My diet is nothing...

    Cheapskate Friend problems

    Finding a good hunting/fishing partner is harder then finding a wife IMO. Usually before I invite somebody to go out with me, I invite them to help me with some sort of large project around the house (or work on the truck, haul wood, ect ) and see how they are. If they jump right in and help or...
