As the title says, I have been given permission to use some woods not too far from where I live. I can do whatever bushcrafty stuff I like and take my rifle to make a dent in the pigeon population.

So I can now stop being a, mostly, armchair enthusiast to being the real deal. ha ha

so what to do first?

Answers on a postcard please. Best answer wins a . . . . . erm . . . . . . .nod of approval from me. :)

last time i went out on my own i tried making a few different styles of pot stands, i like this one simple and fun to make, i stashed it somewhere safe and dry for next time im out again, and also you can choose the pot stands that work for you and your set up ;)

Nice rig!

Looks like a variation of the burtonsville rig mors describes.
You'd get better results with 1 stick at 45 degrees propped up with the hanger coming vertical of the crosspiece.
The pot hanger notch is great because if you make it right the pot hanger should be able to swing quite a lot in any direction without falling of.

Angleterre.
do a recon, of the place, then try keep it invisible from ignorant, and anybody who just chuck rubbish anywhere, have some sort of rules, cook in one place only, camp in another and at least try to leave no trace no the land, then enjoy the place, also try planting a few shrubs and a few trees wherever you have bigger gaps around your woods. also you can make a few benches, tables, with forked sticks then take them down. cheers the interceptor boy. carved yourself a nice Kuska, spoon.
