Hoping this works as never loaded videos. This past fall, I broke my left ankle while getting ready to go bear hunting. Well, the bait they were using wasn't working and I had brought up a bunch of stuff including donuts. well the donuts worked as the bear started to come to bait station. This is the video of my cousin shooting "MY" bear! So, now you see why shooting a bear has become an icon with me. This dam thing will be in the chicken shack I stay at while we hunt and stupid stupid stairs! :evil:

Was a 2 year old bear just the right size for eating.

thanks
ricky. just shows that when all the fancy bait being used, and all the same mix, some good old donuts with a few fresh ones works every time. we also added peanut butter, grape jelly, honey and bread. it gets a little expensive but as with this bear, she came in within a day's worth of my bait put out.

MakeMine and I are thinking about going Kodiak hunting with a spear made out of our survival knives. Rambo style, from a tree. Lol.

nice area. i go up around grand rapids by my cousins land, he was the one in the video who had the balls to shoot my bear lol.
I have other bait stations that he recorded but those were over his bait and only drew in wolves and deer. some awesome video of wildlife via game cam if anybody is interested in watching them, just post here i guess and will add to bottom.

Count me in on that, will hone those survival knives to shaving quality. Took me a few days of putzing but got it to take hairs off as well as thin layer of fingernail. that would be the survival knife i bought off ebay.

Here's a trick I learned from a chef...YMMV, use a piece of plate glass to steel your knives on. He showed me how to use those triple (triangle shaped) hones to great advantage. Then as I mentioned in another post he would use a simple chromed screwdriver shank like craftsmans to steel the edges. And that's good enough for day to day cutting as it leaves a durable heavy edge. But for fillet quality sharpeness he said to hone it on plate glass with some veg oil. Always sharpen towards the backbone of a blade otherwise you'll roll the edge. And never take more than one swipe per side of the blade across the stone. However, these tips where given to me over thirty years ago. Modern materials may have changed the way things are done. His way has worked for me so I'll stick with it. Ceramic sticks and such might work just as well. IDK. :dunno:

I use a finishing steel, like your glass to do majority of my knives. As i know condition that they are and how used. And same technique. Ultimate challenge is to take silk and drop over top of blade. If it cuts it then she's ready to go.

A dull knife is far more dangerous than a well sharpened blade.

I'm not arguing with you or disagreeing with you buddy, but a steel has teeth that actually shape the blade and put the blade tines back into the right place. I've never heard of using a glass or a screw driver shank. Now, calm down, don't get a big dick. Lol.
I'm always game to learn new shit.

wolf, have you ever seen a finishing steel? very smooth piece of steel no grooves in it but just smooth.a knife drawn on this to 'finish' the knife is taking the micro edge (for lack of a better name) and pulling it into one direction. A finely sharpened knife like I said, should be able to cut silk with no effort. Stopping with a medium steel or a ceramic stick wont do that, those work ok for field touch ups.
That help any?

This is a finishing steel thanks to my now gone FIL and a screwdriver, both are smooth and both work to finish a knife. Now, would glass work? Yes, glass is smooth surface that will help to finish the edge. The only "new" way that I would trust for final edge is a system i saw at Cabela's. It was basically a tiny belt sander that had a finishing grit of paper of 3,000 grit I think. The wheel grinders.... :wow: OH HELL NO!

Bubba, I've seen all kinds of steels, from rough to fine. I guess you didn't know that I used to be a butcher and I currently cook and use a steel, also called a tuning rod, all the time.
What I'm saying is that even a finishing steel or finest tuning rod has microscopic teeth on them.
I'm not saying that a screw driver shank wouldn't work because I've never tried to use them in such a way.
So in essence, even a finishing steel have teeth one them to shape the splines on the blade back to a razor sharp edge.
If I were to take a finishing steel and try to sharpen a dull ass knife, it would take a very long time. Hence the rougher, courser steels.
I might be some dumb, but I'm not plum dumb. Lol.
