Figured i'd make an Outdoors man thread so we could share pictures, stories and tips on Hunting, Fishing and Camping. I'm fairly new to this so i would love to hear what you guys have to share.





I guess ill start it off with a pic of my first and only Deer i shot back in December of 2012 in NJ. I used a compound bow and shot from about 10 yards from my tree stand (18ft up). This little guy was under me and quartering away and was also one of 4 deer in my corn pile. Sadly he had the biggest rack of them all lol. Even worse he had Cystic Fibrosis there for i opted not to eat it. O well, there's still more fish in the sea and deer in the woods.

This is my first buck with a bow this past fall.  I've been hunting since I was 16.. patience pays off to say the least.

here are some randoms of mine from the past couple years, mostly fishing.  a few photos from each, but you can check all the photos and stories in the links.  this is my dad and uncle's boat.  they go at least a few times a month for 2-3 days at a time.  I tag along for at least a couple trips each summer.  we normally go to the outer coast out of cross sound, to a place called elfin cove, and fish about an hour south of there.

last fall on my skiff with friend and dog, trolling.  so relaxing..



last summer, went to lituya bay.  most amazing landscape I have ever seen, and I can't deny I've seen a lot.


camping on the top of the boat with the head of the bay in the background


the mountains at the back of the bay, zero to 8,000ft


pulling shrimp pots the next morning, ended up with 5 gallons of tails



pod of 40-50 orca passed us.  15kft fairweather range in the background


toward shore on the other side


camping on the back deck in deer harbor on the coast



overnight trip a couple years ago.. shrimp, about 5 gallons of tails again




earlier that summer, a few nights on the coast again.  video of my pops pulling in a 170lb halibut.  this is uncut so it's long, but a good fight... you think it's slow until the fish runs.  I think it starts to come to the surface around 12 minutes or something like that




90lb halibut just prior to the 170



and the 170, screenshot from the video


pops with his catch



couple years ago, just a day trip not too far out


a pod of humpback bubblefeeding


seiner near where we were fishing


a childhood friend was back in town and came to slay kings


sea lion doing the usual

I'm thinking about making a PVC long bow for target practice and bow-fishing. Anyone had any experience with the? I've been doing a lot of youtubing and it looks legit. Probably cost me around $15 for the bow I want to make. If anything It'll be good fun and hopefully good for target practice. I'd rather try this first than going out to the store and get a real bow for much more.

I don't see anything wrong with using a pvc bow, but what kind of arrows are you going to use?  DIY ones too?  

So...what do you do with your big game kill?  Shocked

bow and string is going to be home made. Arrows are purchased at the store years ago. I had a compound bow way back but broke it. I got a few brand new arrows I found in the garage. I'd like to make my own arrows too but they won't be as sturdy as real arrows. Tomorrow I'm going to make my target out of 30 thick Dell computer boxes. Hopefully it'll be enough to stop the arrow.

heres a real Jersey buck beachbum!
The old man took him on our old five acre piece in SJ 3 years ago, with the Bow. I miss that place.
And here we got stuck in a pit offroading. To give you a perspective of how deep it was the truck sits probably 3.5 feet off the ground with 38 inch tires.
A little more offroading aftermath this truck is considerably smaller.
heres some fishing pics i snapped last year like this spot because the plant is cooled off of seawater so there is a warm spot there that keeps em biting.

It comes and it goes, get it while it lasts.

I made my target out of boxes and it doesn't stop the arrows very well especially if you have massive draw strength.  LOL  You need to either stick Styrofoam or a phone book inside otherwise it's gonna pierce right through.  LOL

I'm gonna guess my homemade bow is going to have a 35-40lbs draw strength I hope that'll be light enough to not pierce through 10 inch thick of cardboard.

You should be fine....
10" of cardboard is surprisingly tough...
It'll wear faster than you think though...

I postponed making it due to work but I've already made a few strings in different sizes for small bows i'm going to make. I'll finish it in a few days and post a picture of the finished product. Bow, string, and target!

Finished making the bow. The draw weight is actually more than what I expected. Leaving the string on overnight to let the bow cure with the shape. Need to paint it but that can wait after a few target shots. Currently 45# @26 inches.


Here's the serving rig I made to serve strings.

That's quite the craftsmanship you've got going there. 
How long did the project take? and did you document the whole process?

Thanks, this bow is actually my 2nd one. The first was experimental, basically learning how to press, bend, and mold the shape. I took some pictures by not many. I will be making another bow (smaller bow) next week and will take lots of pictures then--now that I got my technique down.

The 2nd bow took 4 hours. Most of the time it was standing there looking at the bow and deciding which side needs to bend more. lol. I'm sure it'll be a lot faster once I get more experience.

I watch Backyardbowyer's youtube page and went from there. Now that I have all the equipment my next bow will cost me $2. LOL, here's a list of material I got to make my pvc bow.

Heatgun $10
100lbs Fishing String (free)
Serving String (to serve string) $10
Bee's wax $9

I got the rest of the stuff in my garage. 2x4 wood for clamping, Clamps, Filer to sand edges and bolts and screws.

I'll upload a video tomorrow if it's not wet. I actually made another one in a hurry today because of the bz day it has been. The smaller one is actually more fun to shoot because of the weight strength being so forgiving, roughly 30# @ 28 inches. It looks bad ass too! Cost me $1.00 in material and 3 hours of fun!

If it's really a fun thing for you to do... You might want to consider selling custom made bow's

I'm sure you could sell a few on here and theres always craigslist and archery forums.

I think he already had most of the material so he didn't really need to buy anything to make another one. Super sick bows though!

Yeah, you read that right. A 10 feet pvc pipe cost $1.86. One pipe can make two bows. If you want to account for bow string, it'll cost another $1.00 since I bought a big roll. It'll take around 2 hours to finish a bow depending on the style. So if I wanted to be creative with it, it can take me all day.

I finally got to shoot both of the bows I made today, a 30# and 50# bow I made earlier this week. It's sick! the weaker bow is a lot more fun to shoot because it's lighter on the fingers. The 50# bow left puff marks on my brother's finger tips because the string was so strong and hard to pull. it was hilarious seeing his puffed-up fingers.

Yup. Planning on making a another one since I'm more experienced. It's gonna be the Hunger Games replica LOL and also going to make a 100# crossbow. I just picked up supplies today. I will upload videos from this past weekend of me shooting. Nothing exciting but it's a lot better than looking at pictures.

By dead spot, do you mean area where the bow won't bend?
From the handle to the the white joints it bends a bit. From the joints to the tips it bends a lot more, allowing 6.5inches of brace height--the length from the bow handle to the string when strung.

Personally, this is my favorite bow to shoot because it shoots straight. My other 35# bow curve just a bit if I don't pull the string back all the way. With my new release trigger, everything is just more fun because I don't get finger blisters anymore LOL

Video of me shooting my takedown/portable bow last week. It's pretty accurate. Shot it at 20 and 30 feet, I think? We shot it at 120 feet at my sister's house too. I just broke it yesterday because I left it in the garage with 100+ degrees of heat. One of the limbs bent on me because the plastic got a little soft. I already saw it coming and knew that limb was a bit week but unfortunately it gave out quicker than I thought. Nevertheless it was really fun and everyone loved shooting it. All I gotta do now is make a limb to replace the broken one :)

I guess that would be the downside of a plastic bow.  LOL  I guess in your case, there's no need to worry about it snapping and flying into your eye or something.  Your cardboard box target is much smaller than the one I made, but you probably have better aim than me anyways.  Shocked

The cardboard target is actually 2'x3.5' (7 inches deep) and weights 30lbs. I've never gotten to shoot straight through it yet and have only gotten halfway if I stood up close.

Half way done with the hungers game replica and half way done with the crossbow. Thinking about finishing the bow tomorrow and crossbow next week.

Yeah, my cardboard target is like 4 times bigger than yours but only like 4 inches deep, but I stuffed it with Styrofoam and memory foam from an old mattress.  It's pretty light but due to the size, I either have to drag it or need help carrying it outside.  LOL

I it stormed last night for a good 30 minutes. I left my target outside and now it's all ruined :(
Time to make another one, this time, a portable one.

I had a bow when I was little, then upgraded to the pulley system, then got a crossbow. Then got more into school sports :-( I still love my crossbow though :-)

I know I posted this in two other pertinent threads, but I can't help it; I love me some salmon!

got my first king of the year the other day... a fatty 36 incher.  gave half of the fillets away and still have half of what I kept, after eating it every day between 2-3 people since catching it.




our catch for the day consisted of, in this order of catch, a dolly, my 36", and jeremy's 28"

Here is a pretty rad video of the provo boys fishing and backcountry boarding in Alaska. Looks like a pretty amazing unguided trip they took. 

Can't figure out how to insert a vimeo video, so here's the link
