Default Primitive Camping Pics



Advertise Here

[B]I do Primitive Camping and get out several times a year to do so. I like to get away from the pressures of everyday life and enjoy the type of peace and quiet you only get by disappearing into the wild for a few days. Here are some pics from my latest trip into the Woods that I thought you all might enjoy...and yes, the shotgun is legal. If you other folks have your own pics, feel free to post yours as well. [B]

SH, Excellent! That's the way to do it. Nice knife, I love the sheath! Did you hand craft it? If so, excellent job!

Thanks. Yes, with the exception of holsters & ammo belts, I only wear my own work. The knife is a hand forged frontier style "Mountain Man" Butcher Knife I had crafted for me by my friend Matt Lesniewski of ML Knives. He makes all my personal straight blades for me, then I make the sheaths to go with them.

I would say from looking at it that it is superior to the new Les Stroud, Helle, Temagami knife. Looks like saw blade steel.

Matt is an "old school" type knifesmaker. The carbon steel is similar, in that it is tough like file steel, yet easily sharpened. He forges his knives using the same methods and equipment used by the old time blacksmith/knifesmiths of the 1800's. He uses 1095 carbon steel and every blade is made from scratch to the customers specifications. He will also "antique" the blade for you if you wish, to give it that "old" look. He does excellent work.

I love being in the woods as well. I don't see a sleeping pad under your bag, which one do you use?

If that is a cut down shot gun you have there you'll be going to jail for 10 years my friend. Falls in the same catagory as a machine gun so be advised. An you can't made it that way then think you'll just get a $200 tax stamp for it don't work that way.

Not neccessarily. 18" barrel and at least 26" overall is completely legal.

Interesting picture.

Here's a primitive campsite from earlier this summer. After the sunrise, I made some breakfast, broke camp, and took this picture.



Note that you can't even tell I was there other than maybe a couple broken pieces of grass.

The pistol is a 1986 Model Ruger Blackhawk 45LC and the Shotgun is an old Savage single shot 12 gauge.

I don't use a pad. If it is wet I use a water proof ground sheet under the bed roll.

Thanks for the heads up. You only need a tax stamp if the barrel and/or overall lengths of the gun fall below what the law allows for. This shotgun is OVER the requirements on both barrel and overall lengths so it doesn't break the law. It just looks shorter in the pic do to the camera angle. It is actually a bit longer than your standard pistol grip shotguns and I checked with the authorities in advance. I would never violate the law.

Exactly, and this one is well OVER the required lengths on both. I checked with the authorities in advance to make sure it wouldn't violate any laws. Now hopefully we can get back to the intended thread subject.
