    I think I like this thread. in the morning you can get fresh roadkill before it gets warm and giant eagles come to eat it. You can leave the mashed roadkill for them haha.

    I also want an animal trap because I don't really get into guns. I like them but I just don't know about them.
    Getting stricter with my ignore function.

    You can start here

    http://www.sportsmansguide.com/produ...+gutting+knife

    There's much to choose from. This combo caught my eye...



    skinning, gutting, and chop through bone
    got a deer to cut up? That'll work

    And you need a skin ripper for the fur

    We use one much like the bottom knife in your top pick. We've also been known to field dress with about the tiniest pocket knife you can find in a pinch, though.

    A pair of binoculars are handy. Like anything else, the more powerful the better, but there is a downside of added weight with higher power.

    You are very kind.

    I'm sorry.

    My people come from coal miners and they refer to a magnifying glass as a spy glass.

    I guess they get that from Sherlock Holmes.

    Or the Little Rascals, "Hide and Shriek", episode.

    Check Out Hide and Shriek on Hulu.

    Thanks for the clarification and Lil' Rascals video.

    When flying in the military, I wore a survival vest. It had several items in it, including a 1.5 inch "spy glass" (along with a flint to go with my steel survival knife) for making a fire. Bigger would focus more light and generate more heat, but the little magnifying glass worked fine.

    My only comment would be to have glass lens, not a plastic one. Plastic works, but not as well and, if scratched, much less.

    This is nice,but I suspect the lens is plastic: http://rustybayonet.com/pro1142215.html

    One of the surprising ideas I ran across on YouTube videos was that of packing two of the big Rat Traps in your backpack and then set them in high traffic areas if you absolutely need to trap something to eat, Dave Canterbury said.

    Good trick. Would probably work on squirrels. Safety wire (stainless steel wire) has several good uses including making a squirrel snare.

    In Florida, the house I was renting had a very large squirrel problem which I helped them fix....along with my dinner....using a squirrel snare like this video.
