Update 2020!

Do you fancy carrying a boot knife? If so, you know very well that the term “boot knife” corresponds to the obvious.. a slim blade knife designed to be carried in the boot.

A boot knife or fondly called as the “gambler’s dagger” is a small, double-edged sharp blade that is usually carried or strapped inside a boot. The blade measures 3 to 5 inches and is concealed by a protective sheath before latching inside the boot through the sheath clip.

Boot knives are used for self-defense and for braving the harsh elements of the great outdoors such as wild animals and tall grasses when camping, fishing, trekking, or hunting.

Not only can a boot knife provide protection, but it also comes in handy for doing simple tasks such as opening cans, chopping pieces of wood for fire, cutting off stubborn roots when setting the tent up, and many more. In essence, a boot knife is an indispensable tool for survival in the wilderness.

What Sound Does A Deer Make And How To Hunt Using Deer Calling

Do deer make sounds? What sound does a deer make? I’m familiar with the different sounds and calls a deer makes due to years of accompanying my dad whenever he goes out to hunt. I may be familiar and experienced, but I’m not an absolute expert when it comes to “deer calling”. The content of this article is based on experience, research, and information from my fellow hunters.

Do deer make sounds? Definitely yes! In fact, deer are very vocal. We just don’t hear them because, in the presence of a predator (hunters like us and other wild beasts), they run like ghosts, not a single sound nor footstep.

what sound does a deer make 1

Deer, does, and bucks, are very sharp listeners

In reality, bucks, does, and fawns use various sounds to threaten, communicate, call for help, and convey information to one another. We’re all too familiar with the grunting and snorting noises of deer, but most of us have heard very little of the other sounds they create. Have you listened to a fawn’s distress call? Or a buck’s mating call?

The Ultimate No-Cook Food List You Need for Camping

For starters, a camper’s food list includes a variety of food types – fresh food, dry food, canned food, bread loaves, biscuits and chips, canned beverages, spreads, and sometimes, a few spices. Most of the food we bring are light, not prone to spoilage, and has a nutritive value.

Your body needs all the nutrients it can get from the food you brought because camping is a strenuous activity – setting up the tent and lying cozily in the campfire is just the small picture.

Finding The Best Gun Case: An Extensive Review and Some Useful Tips You Need To Know

“If you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one…”

- Luke 22:36 NIV

Update 2020!

Most people cringe at the sight of a gun, rifle or other firearms. Yes, these things were meant to kill (of course not a person for goodness’ sake!) and protect. Shooting is also a recognized sport around the world.

For hunters like us, a rifle is the only way to put a 100-pound beast down. You cannot hunt without a trusted rifle by your side as if you can kill a beast with your bare hands, let alone a dagger.

Most importantly, hunting (for me) is far less atrocious than commercial farming of animals.

In hunting, we learn to stalk and trace the animal for as long as a month’s time and kill it with one clean, painful shot whereas, in industrial farming, they cram the animals in filthy cages and subject them to torture.

Now I’m not justifying the act, I’m only explaining my side.
