Our Aldi's is 99% groceries, also, but there is a section of other "stuff."  Never paid much attention to it.  Will have to look the next time we shop there which is pretty often.

That's cool. All our Aldi has is grocery. We shop there often though.

I assume Aldi's is just back east.  We have none in South Dakota, at least the western area. 

Those mats are pretty good.  I have two or three and use them quite a bit.  I think mine are made by Thermo Rest.  Yard sale finds for cheap.

We have a chain called Shopko in the nearest town.  Besides clothing, shoes, housewares, a few tools, and groceries they have a a selection of camping and fishing supplies.  A few items like cartridges, inexpensive knives, compasses, low end binoculars, and so forth.  Once a big game season ends they put a lot of stuff on closeout and I stock up.  Last year I bought a lifetime supply of 20 ga. shotgun mops for $1 each and some shooting gloves for $3.00 each.

I was surprised to see a camping section at Aldi's. If you don't have one it's a discount grocery store. all no name canned goods and home supplies. Most of their stuff is decent quality. It's the main source for our frozen fish.

They had a large section. Hammocks 9.5'x4.5' for$12.

2,  35' polyester  ropes with glow strand utility rope. A black camp shower bag. An 8 oz flask. A few other things i don't remember all $4.99 each

An 8 person two room tent for $69.

A single burner propane (maybe butane, I don't think so tho) for $14.99

Bunch more. I got a self inflating mat like I always see for $80+ for only $14.99. It's heavy duty, not real heavy, it airs up 2" and is very comfortable.



I couldn't pass this up either. $9.99 and it's 23"x 12.5"x6.7" very light and folds up into it's own inside pocket. I actually carried our grocery's in the house with it. Not real well built but it'll come in very handy for a quick outing with the dogs. They had multiple color options as well.

Plumb hatchet for size comparison.

That's hardcore. I missed that that thread O.P. glad you linked it.

Not sure I want to do the butchering or I'd already have a few. I wanted a mobile chicken tractor I could move everyday.

Only duck I've tried tasted like a nosebleed. I know it's all in the prep.  Bet Merganser tastes like a fishy nose bleed.

Here goes my heron story...
I once saw a heron trying to get a 2+ pound trout down his skinny little heron neck. Heron dropped the trout and I tossed over a 7" trout I was unhooking. Heron grabbed the little trout and I took the bigger wounded trout. Good trade.

I feel a 'wolfy story' coming on. :rolleyes:

Back in the late '60s there were a couple of brothers who farmed together near our place.  They had an old john boat that they used to net-fish the backwaters and sloughs along the Missouri River.  One night their luck took a turn for the worse and they ended up with a heavy net full of quillback.  After hours of untangling the spiny-backed sunzabiches from their net, they took several washtubs of them back to their farm and threw them over the fence to the hogs.  Several months later, they took a fattened shoat to the local slaughterhouse to renew their larders.....all of the bacon and pork chops tasted strangely like fish!  Funny thing was, since they were both quite frugal, they ended up eating it anyway.  One of them said (and I'm not lying here)...."It wasn't TOO bad."  :shrug:
