Hey guys, what kind of gear you bring with you on a hunt or when you go hiking etc?
I'm a collector of all kinds of gear..
I'm currently living in Ontario but will be moving to Alaska soon, I'm trying to prepare and buy things in advance like bear spray etc.
Here's a few items I always bring from my collection:
Kabar Kukri Machete
Strong chopper, great for clearing. This ones my favorite machete because of the blade shape.
Csar-T Tops Buck Knife
This buck knife is awesome, normally I'd go with a fixed blade but I just love the durability and quality of this folder.
Folding Credit Card Knife
This little knife is actually one I got free from a survival life promotion.
It has a quality blade, all metal build and it fits into the credit card area of my wallet. It makes an excellent backup tool and I have it with me always.
You can get 2 of these knives for free from http://knifefreebie.com?=free-knife-giveaway-2016 I originally found out about the giveaway in Ducks Unlimited magazine.
I'll probably be picking up the Ka-Bar Becker BK2 next week, will post some pics and a review if I get it.
For flashlights I'm thinking about either of these two:
Fenix PD35 TAC 1000 Lumen CREE
My last flashlight fell from 2 feet off a log, hit a rock and broke. Terrible durability for a $75 light.
For my compass I just use a cheap one.. I mainly rely on my GSP (it's made by Garmin I forget the model) it syncs with my dogs tracking collar.
I try to keep things minimal, I barely even bring food or water when I head out I like to try and rough it as much as possible. I do bring some fold out cookware but also like to cook on flat rocks or do primitive cooking setups.
What are your choices for best machete, buck knife, EDC, gear items etc?
