Scouts Show and Tell

We spent another fun evening down with our local scout troop trying to expand their knowledge on the adaptability and practicalities of Bushcraft and survival, we brought down a number of crafted items that could be usable in the field if you were put in a difficult situation

All sitting in rapt attention, ( I don't know why, I'm not that interesting!!)

All the items I'd made on the table including cutting tools, arrowheads, harpoon heads,antler digging sticks, baskets, hides, cordage and steels, and spears and atlatl's against the wall behind

Even after nearly an hour the guys were still showing great interest and asking very intelligent and well thought out questions,working with a group like this makes all the effort very worthwhile

It seemed to go very well with a number of requests made for a few "courses" to be run over the next few months and especially over the summer when the schools break, so we look forward to running "From Bone to Broadhead" , "Constructive cordage" and "Basic Knife construction and sharpening techniques"...I think Buzzard will be very busy over the next year or so!


  1. Hi Guys,
    I see you have been basketmaking without me.
    Well done you learnt something.
