Hi Ryan

Archery is my main passion (I'm the chairman of The English War Bow Society) but I'm interested in all things outdoors/bushcraft etc.

Hi Ryan. Just came across the site. Seems quite a good one. I was wondering if perhaps we could start a contact page for ex deer cullers. I am a "Dipflat" graduate from the sixty's when we were under the Internal Affairs and shot in the Owen/Matiri and the Glenroy/Lewis blocks and later in the Uruwera. I often wonder where these old shooters are now. 

Cheers. Rod Thompson (Slim)

Do you have a FAQ page? How do I PM, and do you have a waikato group?

g,day ryan

i am replying to your message about the workshop in otago. it was with envy that i red about the workshop you mentioned that would take place in auckland, and when you said their might be one in otago, i was was very glad. i will love to attend such a workshop.

you also asked about my level of experience of bushcraft... obviously we all have a level of knowledge in bushcraft but for me it is rather a oppertunety to practise and share your skills in a community that share the same values as you are.

please share the information about the workshop in otago as soon as it comes available.

cheers David

Hi Ryan, thanks for approving me =)

You can call me Huan.

I do not know if bushcrafting is of any interest to most Singaporeans but I want to believe there are some who are into bushcrafts lol~ Most adult males in Singapore do have at least alittle experience in vegetation because we have to do national service in our country =)

Thanks Ryan

I'll have a look over the site in the coming weeks. Am interested to find any bushcraft teaching meetings/  trips etc.

 

One question how does the messaging system work - Am I effectively sending you a PM here or is that different?

 

Cheers

Mark

Hi Ryan, thanks for the welcome.  I have been hunting now for ‘several’ yrs and have spent a fair bit of time in the bush.  Ironically I got into bushcraft whilst living in England between 2000 and 2007 when I got stir crazy with city life and needed some outdoor action.  I was lucky enough to go on a couple of Ray Mears’s Woodlore courses one of which was taught by Ray himself.  On the first course we did fundamentals like fire, cordage, cooking, knife work, observation and camouflage and so I have bought those skills to my hunting trips.  I have really let my bow drill skills laps though and have just made a new set and am practicing in the garage at home.  The screech of wood on wood has joined the urban cacophony!  I am enjoying experimenting with different woods to take a spark from a fire steel, so far nothing matches Birch bark but there is not a lot of that in the NZ bush.

Thanks for welcoming me Ryan. I am relatively new to Hunting/Shooting and Bushcraft but have done a fair bit of research and want to continue expanding my skills. Its great to see a forum like this for NZ and all the other forums i have visited are from the states. Keep up the good work mate.

Thanks for the welcome Ryan. I was just on google seaching for bushcraft and came across this site. I had no idea there was anything like this in NZ.  You have done a great job putting this together and I'm sure I will learn alot.
