I noticed the survivalist board already sort of covers this (sort of if you want to talk purely about SHTF scenarios...) but I would like to propose a BTS forum dedicated to Hunting, Fishing, Hiking, Mountain Climbing and the like...

I'm sure there are people here that would like to talk about their favorite outdoor activities without having to worry about going into some SHTF end of the world conversation...

IMO I believe that many of the members here would take quite well to it as there are many hunters, fisherman and all around sportsmen browsing the boards quite often..

I figured if there is a board for video games there should be a board we we can go discuss rods and reels, hunting rifles, outfitting equipment, Trail cam footage, sweet fishing spots or some of the new fancy sportsmen technology..

You could call it something like "The Great Outdoors"

Anyone else like this idea...

As do I


I figure if there's a place where we can talk about the new Mass Effect 3 release and a place to discuss the engine tweaks to our Mitsubishi... there should be a place we can go to talk about the new bass tracker fishing boats or that sweet new fish finder with heightened sensitivity and a 3d view of the lake bottom...

Proposal for a New BTS Forum re: Outdoorsmanship


Love this idea!

Maybe re-name it Wilderness Adventures or something non-sexist (-manship)...



**Kidding, really

MODERATORS! GO FOR IT! Most of us are here to learn about things we aren't familar with. I have no damned idea how to climb a mountain. (And i'm not sure I want to but I'll still read the thread.

i agree

too many survival threads have a insane premise , or focus on firearms as a solution

in the real world people need to know how to stay warm dry , hydrated , confortable and fed on a 30 hour wilderness wekend

rather than cold , wet , thisty and hungry and chafed , exhaused and miserable

Well that's a good point..

I think the most important thing (other than having a place to discuss this stuff) is it will keep the survival forum from being bogged down with threads that are more appropriate here.

agree...but Im already looking at what arguments will ensue...somebody will find something wrong with whatever is said just because people on here love to fight over crap that doesnt mean anything...lets give it a try

I agree 100%

I was born and raised in the woods.
Definitely a good idea, because I have a lifetime of experience in all things outdoors.
As I'm sure a lot of fellow posters do, also.


Anything about camping, hunting, fishing, well...really everything.
4x4's, quads....
I walk off my back porch and into the woods on a daily basis.




I see a title....
"Anything Outdoors"

Sounds great. Can we include scuba diving and spearfishing?

I'd imagine anything having to do with hunting fishing and other outdoorsy stuff would be included..

hunting fishing is okay DaMod... but no skinnydipping stories...
lots of us here at ATS would pay good money never to see you naked

Any mods around? Who do I need to talk to in order to get the ball rolling on this?

Yeah lets get-er-done... I already have the draft for a thread... Deer and wildlife movement during hunting seasons...
the facts are kind of surprising too.

Sounds like a winner idea to me. I grew up outdoors, and I still learn new things. Especially from DB and the rest here.
Thanks.
