Hey guys this is a short film I made...In bushcraft we talk a lot about what is the best knife or axe.But seldom do you hear anyone talking about using these tools ethically.

I am really angry and upset at some of so called bushcraft videos posted in you tube.Some people seem hell bent on killing trees and destroying there local wild habitats.

I think that wild foods and natural materials should be gathered ethically.The way some "bushcrafter's behave in the woods is little more pure vandalism.Some videos show several 30 year old trees being cut down just to show how good the axe is.Also we see bark being cut and striped from living trees to demonstrate a survive food.
