    Strange discussion.
    Never heard of mr Cantebury until a few months ago.
    Somone one here recommended some of his videos. Watched a few of them, had a laugh, started humming the Davy Crocket tune, thinking theres enough "John Waynes" in the world. Also watched a few Dual Survival episodes, entertaining... Anyone seen the movie "Dumb and Dumber"......?
    "Bushcraft" isn't a skill, it is a reflex, its a nerve in your asshole that develops for years and years. It is nothing some ex. US-Army action figure can teach you on a few videos or on an overprized weekend "course".
    Leave John Wayne and Elmer Fudd by themselves and get out there, see, smell, listen and feel.

    Actually there was only the one. And no. That wasn't nearly enough.

    Buschcraft is the ability to read the bush. Woodcraft is the ability to read the woods. And on in fintum.

    That nerve in your bottom is totally separate and No, it doesn't 'develop over years' doing anything. You're either born with it or you're not.

    I've scanned the comments on the Dave Canterbury 'issue', and a few things come to mind;
    * those who's comments are condemming or antagonistic, usually are people who fear being found out themselves; or 'What is it about others you dislike about yourself?' Ponder on that for a while, hmm.
    * Dual Survival was/is a good program which shares different approaches to the same problem or situation.
    * Dave Canterbury's reputation is ruinned for the foreseeable future, something which he brought upon himself. Why kick a person when they are down?

    Additional Observation:
    I am ex-CDN Forces SFF/Airborne, NCO and yes I have 'commanded' patrols and small units. Enlisted men can and do 'command as circumstances and situations warrant. Officers seem to be quite scarce when there is work to do or bullets are cracking by.

    They can "lead' but true "command" imparts the ability to discpline, which is limited to officers IAW the UCMJ.

    Dual Survival used to come in very high in the TV ratings, the new season just came in at No58, beaten by the likes of Spongebob, storage wars and robot chicken.

    I definitely am not a fan of habitual liars. But I am a forgiving man. I couldn't stand DC when watching the other seasons until this season came out. Now I miss him dearly. Before it was like two woodsmen/bushcrafters playing in the woods using real skills, now its like a daytime soap opera where they just argue and rambo runs around with his big knife.

    DC I think is way more qualified to teach survival and bushcraft with what he has REALLY done, than he would be with his FAKE record. Just because you know how jump out of airplanes, load guns fast, shoot nats off of hairs, doesn't give you bush skills.

    He has more experience with bush skills than a lot of people, and I bet I could always learn a thing or two from him.

    I think its good for him that this all came about, I expect he will work that much harder to show his knowledge, learn new things, and teach things than before just living off the fame. Now he has to re-prove himself as a true trustworthy legitimate instructor.

    I haven't given up on him, and look forward to any good vid's he may put out.

    AND. I used to like cody way more than I do now. Being a bush hippy myself, he made me happy to see him out teaching primitive ways and connection to mother earth. Now he is so damn arrogant its almost frustrating to watch.

    So DC isn't an experienced military man? What a shocker! (sarcasm)

    There's never a shred of truth behind any of the posers and charlatans Discovery Channel pays to create fake drama for the sake of ratings.
    Bear Grylls is a classic example... that guy couldn't survive his way out of a wet paper bag (and his branded knives couldn't cut through one, either). But, he's a trained monkey who prances around on camera, says "how high?" when Discovery Channel tells him to jump, and squats when they tell him to... take a dump.
    If Discovery Channel said "Bear Grylls has no active duty expeirence, but was trained as a weekend warrior in the TA" nobody would watch, but at least they'd have some credibility.

    Discovery Channel lies far more than its presenters do!

    The only one I had even a shred of respect for was Survivorman (Les Stroud)... and now I can't even respect that guy because he's gone and jumped on the crappy knife endorsements like a ***** hits the streets the week the rent's due!

    Yes, it was awesome, and I learned and did it myself as well. I would have never known it was possible. This was my first time ever trying to knap. Glad he shared the info:
