    Tracking CSI (bit gory)

    Spaniel man these are dog tracks with the rizla in them. First of all look at the interdigital pad: If you look at the dog and cat track pics from clcuckow first. The front of the cat track has three extentions at the rear and two at the front whereas the dog has what you would call a...

    Becoming a Tracking Intructor

    I was not focused on the East or West but in that something that was lost (Indiginous tracking skills) had to be reintroduced.

    Becoming a Tracking Intructor

    KIMBOKO, you have hit the nail on the head, exactly square and I feeel completely understood. I am looking for purity almost a reformation in tracking; and as you have spotted, could also apply to bushcraft. In a sense going back to the first love of the craft rather than what it has become. I...

    Becoming a Tracking Intructor

    This is your first point and on this I fully agree.:beerchug: This is your second point and on this score I also agree but would add that it was used by primitive cultures as a part of warfare. Yes this in an assumption but I cannot imagine any self respecting hunter recognising the tracks...

    Becoming a Tracking Intructor

    After posting this, I did some soul searching in, I suppose, a purist search for authenticity in what I pursue. Tracking. I came across this term that I had never heard before: Plastic Shamanism. I looked it up on wikipedia and below I have put their definition. The phrase plastic shaman...

    Becoming a Tracking Intructor

    I am not yet a tracking instructor but I hope to get there. I am going to journal some of my experience of this journey so far. I was given my introduction to tracking by Anthonio Akkermans at Wild Live Nature Awareness Tracking School. It was also my introduction to bushcraft or backwoods...

    Hunting Expo in Budapest...

    I spent about a month working in Budapest during the late 90s and then a fortnight the year after. I love that city and hope to visit again this year. I took so many photos of dogsthere and have never seen so many dogs per head of population anywhere else I have ever been. Out in Vac where I...

    Idea for a bushcraft reality TV show.

    There are reality shows that have covered bushcraft, for me the new element for discussion was about bushcraft with a real lack of communication and how they would learn to communicate without a common language. I will try to put you in the picture a bit. I believe this forum is portraying...

    Idea for a bushcraft reality TV show.

    I said twelve bushcrafters, not twelve random people. Most of the bushcrafters I have met have not thought with the same patterns as your average Joe, sex, violence, greed etc. I give bushcrafters more credit than that, when I meet up with my brothers at Shadowhawk tracking courses, I...

    Idea for a bushcraft reality TV show.

    Imagine twelve bushcrafters, none of whom speak the same language in a bushcraft situation having to get on together and survive. A bit like what it would have been like at the tower of Babal in Genesis; hypothesise even if you don't believe in that story. This is not a religion topic. You...

    British bushcraft - a dying art?

    Hi Wolfie, great post, despite the squabling. I have not been at the forum for a long time due to getting fed up with squabling ruining my experience here. Britain is made up of so many tribes, that if we are not fighting someone we are fighting among ourselves. Fighting became a part of our...

    Where to get plain brown wool

    I have not been to the forum for about 6 months due to the hastles with logging in, but now am looking to find some plain brown wool of a fairly tight weave and descent thickness. Think medieval friar and you will know what I am looking for as to plainness and thickness. Any help in...

    Impressive bird attack!

    At least you had your camera handy. Unique content even if a bit blurry, you should be proud of that shot. A few weeks ago I saw a tag team of hooded crow and herring gull seeing off a grey heron. It was most unusual as usually the crows and gulls are having a go at each other. Nice one. Jamie

    What colours to wear when one doesn't want to disturb the wildlife

    About the whole orange colour thing, as was mentioned birds have a broad colour spectrum; deer and other animals listen to the birds. I would be more worried about setting off bird alarms than plain green or DPM. The orange thing makes no sense to me apart from being seen by trigger happy...

    West Highland Way

    For me it has always been in the head rather than in the body. I competed in a race with a PTI and beat him. He could out run me, do more pushups than me, more sit ups than me but he could not understand why I matched him step by step on a cross country tab carrying 90 lbs and he had 75 lbs I...

    West Highland Way

    I have completed the WHW twice already the first time when I was about 20 in 6 days with a group of friends, the 2nd time when I was about 27 in 4 and a half days with the missus. I am now at 35 considering doing it again but with more of a challenge. In October during my holidays I am thinking...

    CD Life Of Brian

    I was given the Monty Python CD of The Life of Brian, listened to it once and can't get into it. (I know it is not bushcraft but I have heard more montey python quotes round the camp fire than any other film genre) Would love to swap it for something made from flint or antler.
