Thread: Wilderness week

  1. #1

    Wilderness week

    Hi Guys,

    I'm planning a sort of wilderness week with two mates this summer on my forest syndicate ground in Perthshire. The aim is to camp up and shoot/fish our meat for the week; foraging for firewood, swimming in the lake etc... giving reign to our instinctive Bear Grylls skills. If anyone has any tips from their experience to do with taking venison from field to pot in the field, campfire cooking or any other cool ideas, would you mind sharing them?

    Any advice much appreciated!

    Kind Regards,
    AJWH

    Hi AJWH
    Check any/all backcountry elkhunting sites in the US; there is a world of info. I know it's a b**hunting site but www.bowsite.com has some excellent threads on their Elk forum, and I'm sure you will some useful postings. www.elk101.com is more specifically aimed at elk (does what it says on the tin and all that) both rifle- and [predominantly] b**hunting.
    Be sure and post some photos; hunting vicariously via t'interweb gives all of us stuck in a office some breath of virtual fresh air
    Good luck

    i do this abit and the new ground i am on will be even better as its on the coast so will have shelfish and fish to go with the venison . Heres my camp


    how far do you want to go with it i take a dutch oven and a suspended fire so i dont damage the ground or start fires.


    if you dont go that far just take a small barbi heres one i made for my griddle

    heres a nice lobster thermadore done on the tripod


    if you are on forestry ground you cant have a fire on the ground it must be contained and safe but common sence really.
    as for cooking i used to do the offal for a big breakfast and whip out the backstraps for a nice sandwich and i always took the rod for abit of fly fishing on one of the lochs for a nice brownie, atb wayne ps post how you get on .

    Water is the most important, clean water, nothing quicker for giving you the shxx , either take bottled or a purifier,

    Quality photo's Wayne, looks like you had a feast going there!

    We sometimes do it whilst Salmon fishing, camp out for the week at the river and catch most of our food, fresh Seatrout done in the pan for breakfast is my favourite.

    Wow Wayne!
    That looks funtastic!
    ​Your guests must be very pleased with a campsite and dinner like this!

    Cheers Private Fraser and Johno. Don't worry, we're obviously calling it Narnia and the big round wet thing will only be referred to as our refrigerator for trout and beer (the latter not being free to float around of course).
