  1. Today
  2. The Canadian government has been testing the waters with confiscation for a few years. They select one or two rarer guns, of which only maybe a few dozen might actually be in possession of a gun owner, reclassify it from non-restricted (unregistered) or restricted (registered) to prohibited and demand they be turned over to the RCMP. I presume that they carefully gauge the response, and the next year move on to something a little more common, and so on. What is coming now is scary. They have openly stated that AR-15's will definitely be on the list, a list that they are keeping close to the chest to prevent the buying frenzy surely to follow. They have the authority within our Firearms act to reclassify ANY firearm by Order In Council (roughly the same as an Executive Order) and demand their confiscation. Only a change in government can result in a reversal. Unfortunately our "Conservative" governments, when they do get in power, refuse to overhaul the Act, which they have claimed they would. Anyone who doesn't appreciate the value of the Second Amendment, needs to look no further than their northern neighbour to see what happens without it. Canada is a country of many privileges, but few (if any) true rights.

    Why can't we find and study Bigfoot?

    True but.... many states deny having a Cougar presence as a comparison, and sorry, they are there. So there are governmental levels of resistance to admission of these kinds of things

    The FLIR Scout has an internal rechargeable battery that can only be changed out by FLIR so it needs to be sent back to them and they will install a new one. IIRC the battery is good for two years. It's a drawback but that's the way it is

    Congratulations NorthWind. You're going to love it. For years, I would go out into the night and listen in the woods at some of my favorite spots. I was armed with a flashlight which isn't that helpful. Now, you can become part of the night and participate as things move about. You'll be wanting to spend more of your time in the dark of night. Remember, black hot or white hot as red hot will distort. Here is a video review of the FLIR case for about $30. It starts at 5:18: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8_mOcGuC_E I'll suggest another carrying pouch for consideration. The Maxpedition 10"x4" bottle holder. Why this? Several reasons. First, and most important, it is padded. You can actually add more padding if you like. The last thing you want to be be out in the dark of night and bang the carrying case against a tree or branch. It happens. This pouch will help protect against unintentional damage. Second, it has a compartment in front to carry accessories such as an extra battery, charger, or USB cable. It costs ~$10 more than the FLIR pouch. Here is a review of it and its 12" x 4" larger brother: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=23o4CokBiDg Another 10" x 4" pouch from Condor that is almost identical at only $16.95: https://tacticalgear.com/condor-h2o-pouch-multicam#/22485/848/1 Video review: A few other options: https://tacticalgear.com/hazard-4-broadside-utility-pouch-coyote https://tacticalgear.com/hazard-4-flip-bottle-pouch-coyote Finally, if you have to have branded gear, here is Dave Canterbury's (Dual Survival) version of the above: https://www.selfrelianceoutfitters.com/products/pathfinder-bottle-bag-gen3-black Here are a few very cool ways to modify the pouches above: I'm going to get one of the above pouches and am looking very closely at the Condor H2O Pouch for $16.95. I'll add a tad more padding to the padding already there as there is adequate space to do so. For that price, I don't know how you can go wrong. I'll have the extra front pouch to include an extra battery and other accessories. You can add side pouches to the Condor as well as they attach using the molle straps on either side. It is a versatile piece of equipment to incorporate in my night time adventures. here are some ways others have added to the Condor: https://bushcraftusa.com/forum/threads/condor-h2o-pouch-wip.220342/#post-4094808

    In Search of the Port Chatham Hairy Man

    I was all for it...and it may hopefully, happen in the future. We did have permission to be there, and have permission to go back. We went back last year and filmed something for the upcoming show Alaska Triangle. I understand it isn't everyone's cup of tea, but where else can you get the footage of that area like we got? In my opinion, it's worth the cost of a viewing just for the scenery alone.
  8. November 7th will see the 3rd annual Sasquatch Valley Roundup to be held at the Spokane Valley Event Center. Speakers include: Dr. J. Robert Alley Amy Bue Will "Grassman" Ulmer Larry Beans Baxter More guests and events to be announced. Check out the event page on Facebook.
  9. The snoqualmie pass one walks up the hill.... definitely not a tree stump. Must be talking about Sherman pass.
  10. You willing to be an opinion witness if he were to go to trial upon killing one?
  11. A tree stump. I'd advise the moderators to combine the duplicate posts.
  12. Exactly! It was terrifying yet exhilarating. Don’t you wish you’d gone back to get footprint castings?
  13. Cool, have a great vacation!
  14. Hi Critical Thinker, Looks like no one has posted on this topic for quite some time! I went to the BFRO site and looked up sightings or encounters in Berkshire County, MA, which I have visited. A few there mention the Appalachian Trail. The most recent one, from 2016, was of a “clapping” sound and footsteps in the brush near a trail on Mt Greylock; no sighting of who/what made the sound. This is near but not on the AT, and there are places for backpacker camping nearby. Looks like slim pickings on the BFRO site, but I hope you find more examples of how camping or hiking the major trails can lead to possible BF. If you become a Premium member of the Forums here, you have access to lots more info on the SSR database. Concerning sleeping on a cot, Joebeelart on the bottom of page 1 of this thread has good ideas. As a Newbie we welcome you and hope you have good luck in your research.
  15. When it's time to bury them, it's time to use them. This post is the best argument ever against mandatory registration. Good luck to our neighbors to the North. It would suck to live in the wilder areas of Canada and be disarmed at the whim of urban dwellers.

    @NorthWind You are out in the field quite a bit like me. I would highly recommend one of these cases to carry your Flir in. They do a great job of protecting your equipment. You can find them on Amazon, eBay, or directly from Flir.
  18. I agree with you completely. I believe that he has. Mark has kept his head very well throughout all of the stress. I think that he needs to trust his instincts here.

    Congratulations! Remember, you can charge it while you use it. Get a decent portable charger and a long cable and you can really stretch out the battery lifein the field
  20. It has been getting progressively more restricted for decades and we are actually on the verge of a massive confiscation, to be announced any day now. It's believed that virtually all semi-auto centre-fire rifles will become prohibited and expected to be handed over the government. It's rumoured that they may even ban certain ammo. AR-15's are registered so they know who has them. It will be tough call to decide how to proceed with them as when the RCMP come knocking for your AR and you don't have it at home - you will lose ALL your guns, and your "privelege" of possessing them in the future. There could be more than a million unregistered semi's that may simply get put away, and never spoken about. Difficult times ahead.
  21. It's especially interesting when the people relating their experiences are established and highly respected members of that particular forum. I was impressed to discover that there's a couple of guys on CanadianGunNutz.com who have had sightings. CGN sighting 1 CGN sighting 2

    Good move, NW. Congratulations. I know what it's like to save for something more expensive than a month's worth of groceries. It took a while for me, too. And one doesn't have to wait until night because it works day or night. Much better in cooler weather, so you should have a ball this time of year. Can't wait to see what you might post on the "Thermal Image" thread Last Christmas "Santa" brought a 32,000 Wh power pack which will charge an iPhone 11 times, or a Microsoft Surface/iPad 3-4 times. Takes a helluva a while to charge the thing up but with it I can extend my FLIR Scout time quite a bit. I thank BlackRockBigfoot and others for that tip

    Indian Army Yeti trackway

    I'm late in replying on this. I recognize your track photo without even looking at the report; that's the Mt. Baldy track in Broadwater Co. Mont. I know I've mentioned the report a couple of times in the past. It's a very compelling report. When I read the report. I couldn't see any way the tracks could have been faked by a person. They were clean tracks, no drag marks, went diagonally uphill in a single line; the hunter had to leap just to match the estimated 5 ft. stride length; they were 15 miles from the nearest road, which was a dirt road, in a rough, remote area at 7,500 ft. where the hunter said he had never seen another human. He also states he knows the tracks weren't made by snowshoes.

    Thanks for the advice, BRB, and everyone. Well, I finally did it. I pulled the trigger on a FLIR TK Scout just moments ago. It seemed like it took forever to save up for! Now the waiting begins. @Madison5716 , I hope we can make it out to one of our lakes one of these nights soon!
  25. I agree with sheri, BRB, your post is precisely laid out in the progression/escalation of events. It hasn't been at all easy or comfortable for Mark and his family. He was right to seek help but he may need to step it up to resolve the issue. I'm sure he has been weighing his options carefully.

    Why can't we find and study Bigfoot?

    Many animals are rare and elusive. Way fewer people report seeing a grey wolf or wolverine than report a Bigfoot encounter. Yet we still have clear, crisp photos of wild wolves and wolverines. So for me, things just add up...yet...but I will say I do believe many of the reports of Something being seen, heard, etc.. ..Maybe a person, or a bear...I think I might prefer a bigfoot to these other options!
