Hello all I’m new to the site and thought I would join after reading a few threads.
I’m a survival enthusiast and enjoy camping, fishing, and hunting. I am also into archery and target shooting as well and know my way around bows and guns extensively. I am not into the whole prepper aspect but I believe in being ready at all times in case the need arises, so with that being said I usually keep a bug out bag handy which I use primarily for when I take my family camping.
I grew up in a hunting family and my father would take us out for week ling trips into the wilderness to camp and live off the land. Now that I’m older and have a family of my own I have been working to show my daughter the same values I learned when I was a kid from my father.
I enjoy hunting whitetail in bow and rifle season and when the weather is warmer riding my motorcycle and going to lake to fish.
Anyway, that is a little about me and what I like.
Welcome to the site from Illinois. I’m catching what you’re throwing down about “prepping” or at least “TV prepping”, preparing for hard times or emergency is practical, and what a responsible parent/gaurdian should do, kind of like having at least a few dollars saved back at all times. “Prepping” like the weirdos on tv, is pure douche baggery, and a lame attempt at being subculture-ish. Some times I wish those people would get tattoos piercing and join some other subculture. Unfortunately every time you go to a second amendment rally or similar event, there is a moron there dressed in fatigues with a hat that says “you can have my guns when you pry them from my cold fingers” or some such, and guess who the reporter is going to talk to – yeah that dude, not the guy dressed conservatively that is an informed voter with a career, family, and life.
