Hi Ryan. As you have probably worked out I am a friend of Martin Hunter's.

I am a Brit and have been in NZ for 2 years yesterday. I am keen on developing more bushcraft and hunting skills. In pursuit of this I have also enrolled on a hunting course with the Deerstalkers association.

Good to meet you.
Cheers,
Brian

Ryan, Colin,

nice video on extracting fibres from harakeke (flax).
Have not made string from scratch (processing raw fibres) but I love the reverse twist process and use linen to make strings.

I love the idea of this site and hope it grows as it should.
I am hoping to go camping this weekend in the waikato (might be wet!) and try out my swedish mess kit- let you know how it goes.

The other thing linked to bowmaking is the string, it opens up all kind of things to do with fibre from native plants etc etc. I make strings from manmade fibre but would be cool to learn native sources, must be some sources Maori would have used for cordage etc.

Do we have any Maori members, are there any resources from Maori bushcraft? After all they have been here using native resources for nearly 1000 years and should know some stuff.

Hi Ryan

I have done a bit of flint knapping, who started the query? Also thinking of starting a new group on bow making, I have done a fair bit in the UK and would be keen to experiment with NZ woods, I can make flat bows which is what Amerindians would use, they work with all sorts of woods if you understand the principles. There are some short cut bows which would be suitable to construct in a survival situation, these might be worth experimenting with maybe with a week workshop if people are interested? Cheers Colin

hey Ryan,

sorry mate, but i think u got me wrong... I know nothing about trapping... i mean, close to nothing, since Scott showed me how he does it.. I am keen on outdoors, and even more keen on survival, leaving from the land, and that kind of stuff... of course, whatever i can help with, i will, but, as i said, i don t know much... just want to learn like everybody here.

talk to u mate...

cheers

Cheers

Hi Ryan Im interested in other peoples ideas around bushcraft especially in NZ, Im keen on Hunting & tramping, do most of this in the Waikato area on a weekly basis. Im just like most kiwis enjoy the outdoors & bush I work in the Health arena after a week at work I get more sense talking to a fantail . Like your idea around the Satchel, When hunting I use a leather belt with army canteen attached x2 knives & pouch , I hate carrying a backpack will try your Satchel out. enjoy learning new skills around bushcraft

G'day Ryan, pleased to be here!

I think we could do with a book review section. I have quite a few bushcraft and outdoors related books that have been really useful/interesting that I can review.
