I head into the woods to learn basic beginner bushcraft tips from Bushcraft & Survival instructor Paul Kirtley. This long, informative video goes through a number of different techniques on how to use an axe, a knife, setup camp and light a fire. This video covers some very useful skills that can help to enhance your knowledge of Bushcraft and potentially help you in a survival situation. Myself and Paul also setup a camping spot to do an overnight. I opt for a hammock and tarp setup, as the bugs are still around. Paul goes for a ground sleeping setup with tarp overhead.

I just read and drive lol that's a joke. thanks for the content and my favorite book as a kid was the hatchet grate young teen book i highly recommend if you like that kind of survival stories(i think adults would in joy too(I still do) and i think there's a few more books about the same character too) it takes place in the Canadian bush but i think the character(a 14 or 15 year old kid by himself) is from the us(maybe south Canada) and is going to see his dad up north but the bush plane goes down and the pilot dies from a heart attack(its not a real story tho). btw I'm buying lost in the wild thanks

  • 21:47 I usually baton pieces like that with a knife, which allows me to keep control of the piece and prevent it falling while still keeping my hands off of it and splitting it safely. And i baton it with a .25” thick Sleipner steel knife with a 6.5” blade, so it won’t snap or break creating a hazard. Seems overall much safer and actually easier than using an axe for stuff like that.

  • It's not bushcraft if you bring steel or other processed items with you. Knifecraft, yes. Axecraft, sure. Bushcraft is what you scavenge from the busy. Just as our most ancient ancestors did. Pre-steel. Pre-iron. Pre-bronze. Wood. Bone. Flint. Tar.

  • Excellent ax/hatchet tips. I lopped off the tip of my finger about 10 years ago while I was holding a piece of wood while splitting it. We were way out in the middle of the woods and to make it worse, my first aid kit at the time was extremely limited. Fortunately it grew back after about a year, but man that was a painful lesson. Thanks for sharing gents!

  • There's thousands, tens of thousands even, of bush craft videos available on DE-visions, but this one has to be one of the very best. So much information squeezed in to an hour and half, and so straight forward. Sadly, and it says a lot about today's society, these are skills that, not so long ago, almost every man in the country would of known. Shows how dependant we've become on the "system" to take care of all our needs for us, they say its called progress, but progressing towards what is what worries me. Some of us were lucky enough to have a father who taught these skills to us, and being self reliant is just a way of life, but the majority of the general public would now starve, or freeze to death if ever the supermarkets closed and electricity wasn't on tap. Remember people, we all came from the woods, where we looked after ourselves and took life much slower, and swapped it for the rat race and dependence on a corrupt system, where we spend 60 years of our life slaving for someone else, trying to make ends meet.

  • For wood chopping, what if you don't have a stump like that at your camp site and you want to cut pieces into kindling? What alternatives do you suggest? I do a lot of camping in national parks where you have to purchase bundled wedge cut firewood in the park, and I like to chop up the big pieces for kindling but don't have a solid flat surface besides soil.

  • One real easy way to make coffee without any filters is make it a good bit stronger than you like and once its done brewing add some cold water and the grounds will sink right to the bottom.

  • Only way to learn these is that you need to really practise these skills, usually people practise these in nice and sunny day... But when you really need to build fire in the woods it can be pouring rain or -30c weather, then everything is 100x harder

  • I’ve got one critique for your hand drill. Use your whole hand, roll from the tips of your fingers to just before your wrist. You get a longer faster rotation. Best part is that it spreads the friction on your hands over the whole length of both hands; no more hot spots right in the middle of your palm.

  • I would also recommend laying your split wood on two leather belts if you have them. Not too much though, but still enough that you can carry it all and move it as necessary, without damaging the belt! The two belts also can function as a strop, an emergency tourniquet, a belt (lol), compressing a pack, holding a bed roll together (then you could wear one and bring two extras, use to pick up pots that may be hot, and you can even use two of them for holding loose ponchos or emergency blankets against your body if you need.
