Win a Great Prize Pack with our Tutorial Competition (CLOSED)

---This competition has ended, the winner was John Swarbrick for his tutorial How to enjoy a Steak and Kumara dinner in the bush. Congratulations John!----

With the nationwide launch of the network coming up on the 21st we want to encourage members to create some more tutorials as these benefit all members and especially help people new to bushcraft find their footing.

To help this process along we have a great prize pack that will be awarded to the member who creates what we judge as the best tutorial between now and the 28th of July. That's 2 weeks, plenty of time to create something great that can be used by the community over and over again. The judges will be looking for something that is easy to follow, sufficiently detailed but jargon free, and illustrated with pictures/illustration/videos when necessary, and is on a good bushcraft topic. Check out How to write a tutorial for tips!

The Prize Pack

An EKA COMPACT, an excellent knife to keep in your pocket or bag. It measures 3 - 5/8" closed 6" open with a blade length of 2 - 5/8." The blade is sharp and made from 12C27 Sandvik steel. This is an extremely high quality Swedish made steel designed for knives and surgical instruments. The edges on these knives retain their sharpness longer than many other steels. The handle is made of black resinate plastic and has a textured
underbelly. It is a modern version of the classic Swedish design with an oversized handle.

A 100m roll of Military Linen string, vacuum packed. A good Shrafter should always have some good cordage and linen string is prized for its strength when wet as well as its resistance to rot.

And a Hot-Spark Fire Starter, bearing the official equipment seal of the Boy Scouts of America. Every Shrafter should have multiple ways to start a fire and so this is a valuable addition to anyone's kit.

So what are you waiting for? Don't forget the How to write a tutorial page if you are not sure how to get started. Good luck!

Hi, i'm from the uk,i've been here for 5 years and love it,anyway after finally settling in,i brought a lifestyle block and i'm trying to find ways to make it work for me,so i sign up for a bee keeping course,yes i thought it would be boring and for old people,yes untill i researched about bees,as we know bushcraft is about self sufficency and living of nature,bees are that,so what do we get from them to help us,bee pollen(food,nutrient,)honey of course,(the only food that never goes off,great for putting on sting bites and for lip barm),royal jelly,(what the bees feed the queen bee,high protein and nutrients) and also bees wax( waterproofing and protection ),,and dont forget that they pollinate all the flowers and trees.,BEES ARE REALLY THE BEES NEES
