It's what ever gets the messages out to the readers. I think it was more about acting correctly when the worst possible scenario took place and doing the exact right thing in seconds without having much time to think about it. Hence SHTF. When I think woodsmanship, bushcraft or wilderness survival, I tend to think of building shelters, tying knots, setting snares, things you would see on survivor or alone. But I could be wrong. Doesn't matter to me one way or another. 3 times I've been in a very bad way and came thru it. Not to be confused with an inconvenient situation, but rather one that could've easily taken my life , quickly. I know others on here have as well. I agree, keeping it on track with back country hunting. There are already tons of prepper videos out there. This would be strictly for what we faced and how we got out, alive. Not to be confused with how we survived a 24 hr day with no internet service.Not a bad idea, but maybe call it woodsmanship or wilderness survival. For me SHTF makes me think of someone stockpiling campbells soup in a buried schoolbus bunker prepping for the collapse of modern society. I’m all for it as long as it stays on track with backcountry hunting.
LOL My wife made me get an InReach when she first read about one. She wants me to take it every where, not just hunting.Flood,
I do think its a good idea....but maybe just with the mods compiling the different tips, mistakes, etc that are in their respective categories.....all compiled in one section.
I will say I'm a little worried what this section might end up looking like.
I probably have posted enough of these mistakes, prominent in that section. I'm worried the mods might want to name it the Beendare section- grin. I already have a wife for those 'Reminders'.....
memory lane, when I was a little kid I lived for those little comics in each issue. Outdoor life once dedicated an entire issue to those. I might have to do some digging and see if I still have it.Who remembers the section in Outdoor Life magazine “This Happened To Me”?
Sounds like this could be the same
If it happened while you were Elk Hunting, then I would put it in the Elk Hunting Forum.I dislike the over categorization of forums. If I was archery hunting elk in the backcountry on an out of state backpack hunt and broke my leg, what forum should I post my story in?
Im thinking the General forum.
Hunting from a tree stand. Arrow nocked in bow, resting on safety bar in front of me that sits over my legs. Spotted fawn walks under me. Wife loves "Bambi". So I got cell phone out and filmed it. Went to put phone back in front pant pocket, raised up a bit and bow started to slide down. I grabbed it, nocking arrow into a position that caused it to stick in my thigh, just at the knee. Looked and saw torn pant leg, then felt a wet foot, really wet foot. Pulled up bottom of pant leg, whole sock was already soaked red.I want to know how you got the broadhead in your thigh.
