@ wsdstan, In my case i just drink it, they are all fresh streams coming from the hills / low mountains. But the other guy has a sensitive stomach, so he used the mini sawyer to filter his water.

@ wolfy, nah, it can be really nice weather as well there, we just where not lucky with the timing. Enjoy the meal :-)

Deer Hunters and Trappers Hide Tanning Formula. Makes a stiff skin unless you break the leather. - Which is a lot like work.

At one point I had 12 rabbit pelts cased out in the freezer (2 bags worth).  They got bumped (per SWMBO) to make room for edible stuff before I got around to processing them. Oh, well....   She won't be getting any surprise fur-lined gloves for awhile.  Her fault, not mine. ;D

LOL.  Kelly made me take the trash out because of a dead carcass in the bin.  Then she found a mysterious bag in the freezer.  Sea trout.  They have to be fileted to be allowed to RIP in the freezer.

Minor setbacks.

A 5-6' length of big plastic sewer pipe works really well as a fleshing beam.....no knots or lumps to smooth out as there would be with a natural wood surface.

Heather has become used to my efforts along this line......she once discovered a rolled up ziplock in our freezer thinking it contained some bratwurst that we had long since overlooked.  It turned out to be a mole that I had stabbed with my Opinel in our front lawn and stored in the freezer 'til garbage day rolled around the next week.  Guess it slipped my mind. :shrug:

That seemed like a very relaxing time with good friends.    Is it damp & foggy in that area most of the time.....it kind of looked like it might be?

By coincidence, I just bought a big wheel of French Brie a couple of days ago and I'm going to try some deer meat cooked the way you did in the video......it would be a new experience for me, so thanks for the idea! :cheers:

Thanks Dabberty, nice video of the terrain you hiked in.  Truly a beautiful region of the Czech Republic.

Do you boil or treat the water on these hikes or just drink and cook with it as you wish?

Thank you :-)
For fishing you need A, a license which states that you have the knowhow to fish, and B, a permit from the specific region where you want to fish.
Since we completely didn't count with fishing on this trip, we had nothing with us. But the lady in our group follows a course of primitive bushcraft skills, and making the fish hook from natural materials is one of them. We tried it with a worm, and with some other insects, but the fish where completely not interested.
No issue at all since we brought food anyway.
It was just a nice test.

Thanks for including us on your hike! 
Nice country.  I always enjoy seeing sights from other parts of the World.  It's amazing...taken out of context, it looks a lot like some of MY woods. Things aren't so different where ever you go, discounting borders, rules and language.  I'm always in awe of multilingual folks (I flunked my 'language aptitude test' in the military...haha).
Looks like you had that beautiful trail pretty much to yourselves.
What are your fishing rules there? Seasons?
