Hi Fellas. There's one or two things I think that could make this site easier to navigate. One is a Reply button when a member makes a comment. When I want to reply to a member's comment, I have to…Continue

Hey, that sounds like a darn good idea to me! My only drawback is that I don't currently have a vehicle, so getting around is a tad difficult! Lol! So who else is in?

The Ten Commandments – of Bushcraft

The Ten Commandments – of Bushcraft

These ten commands are passed down from generation to generation within native communities across Canada. I believe they should be taught in school as they represent the core values that are needed to become a Friend of Nature.

1. Always keep learning. Despite all you know, you will never know enough because Nature knows better.…


Pining for the bush.

Posted on August 14, 2012 at 16:34 0 Comments

Hey there, fellas. I'm feeling the weather warming up, and am looking forward to many more hours and days outdoors.

My feet are starting to itch again. I find I'm watching more video's on Youtube and going to websites that deal with possuming, trapping, fur, etc, etc.

So, any of you fellas need a partner to work the possum lines with, or know where I can get ahold of a block with lots of furry critturs on it?

City life is strangling me, I need to get away and breathe…

Hi, Ben. I am posting this in reply to your query as to my background, etc. I'd love to tell you that I was a bushman from way back, that my father used to take me hunting and camping every chance he got, and we had the times of our life. But that would be a complete lie. I have never been hunting, either pigs or deer. My sad loss. 

But I have been camping, in the Urewera when I was possum trapping, and in the Raukumara ranges, doing the same thing. I used to camp out in my back yard…


Bushcraft and Survival School.

Posted on December 8, 2011 at 2:41 3 Comments

Hi, everyone. I was talking to a friend on facebook tonight about my dream of starting and running a Bushcraft and Survival School here in New Zealand.

This friend of mine gave me encouragement and told me to go for it, and to follow my dream.So, here we are, the first step on my Journey. I am asking everyone out there in the New Zealand Bushcraft community for advice, encouragement, and for whatever help you can offer me.

Here is a basic start to the what I want to head…

Yeah Im trying to build up a big enough bushcraft community here so that if someone did start workshops it would be sustainable. I think to start off with we could get a group of Auckland people together for an overnight outing, and take it from there. What do you recon? What locations do you know of in the area we could use? You could add them to the Bushcraft Map of NZ if you do it would be great to have more people contribute to it

Hi Rania welcome to BushcraftNZ! Great to see you stuck right in. Read through your comments, have you had any experience instructing bushcraft in NZ or overseas?

I would like to help facilitate getting groups together, which was really one of the main reasons I started this site. Not sure about others but myself I have usually had to fly solo, and I think you can only go so far this way!

Let me know your thoughts
