    my first figure four deadfall with pics and trigger video

    Good effort! I've been meaning to make one of these. I'll keep your findings in mind when I do so. Thanks for sharing.

    Home made crayfish/crab/lobster pots

    Thanks for the info guys. I think I'll give the bike wheel thing a go and have a few other ideas too. Cheers.

    Hi, Has anyone had a go at making their own fishing pots or traps? I'd be really keen to see your results! Cheers, J

    New Zealand, South Island

    Kia Ora!, I live on the South Island in Otago. What sort of things are you into (besides Bushcraft, I guess!)? A helicopter flight up onto one of the glaciers is an amazing trip. Heaps of good trout fishing opportunities practically everywhere. If you like hunting, there are lots of options...

    Lets see your Shotgun

    I've got a Remington 870 pump action and I also use a Beretta semi auto quite a lot at work. What's yours?

    Central Plateau trip NZ in July

    Looks like you had a lovely trip John, and perfect weather too! I bet the kids loved it. I'm planning on a night or two out with my eldest (Katie, aged 9) in a hut somewhere, but haven't got round to it yet. Cheers, Jamie

    homemade speedhooks

    I made these with some steel wire, paper clips and a simple jig. I haven't tried them yet as I'm waiting for the fishing season to start. Just wondering if anyone out there has actually tried them, and got any tips to success. Cheers, J Uploaded with Uploaded with...

    The Gamekeeper - A Year In The Glen

    Thanks for the info torc. The music was good. Capercaillie and Iron Horse ring a bell with me too! I've got one episode on tape, so I'll check it out. I'm sure the series was available on video as I saw someone selling it on ebay once. Hopefully it'll turn up again somewhere sometime. Cheers :)

    The Gamekeeper - A Year In The Glen

    Hi All Does anyone know where I might be able to obtain a copy of the TV series from the 1990's titled "The Gamekeeper - A Year In The Glen"?I know there's a book that goes with the series, but I want to watch the episodes again. I've tried ebay, but no listings at present. Thanks in advance...

    Steampunk & Bushcraft

    I just recently saw an exhibition of this stuff during a Victorian heritage celebration and thought it was great. Impressive weaponry! I'm sure a steampunk inspired bushcraft blade or survival knife would be an interesting sight!

    Rabbit and bacon pie is good. Boil your bunny first, then pull all the meat off the carcase and bung it in with chunks of bacon and the usual bits and bobs. Enjoy!

    Unbreakable shaving mirror

    Blimey!!! Take it easy! I'm sure he's not really going to carry a hammer and nails around with him, just so he can have a shave. A twig sticking out will do just a well. No need to come down on him like a ton of bricks!
