    Resources for Budding Bushcrafters and more advanced folk.

    Thought I'd share some of my favourite online resources for all things bushcraft.

    http://www.wildwoodsurvival.com/index.html - Great fire lighting section, but generally good allround.

    http://www.woodcraftwanderings.org/index.html - just found this one, but seems very good so far.

    http://www.ravenlore.co.uk/html/bushcraft.html - I really like this site, very inspiring images and some good hints and tips, some nice projects too.

    http://www.bushcraftuk.com/forum/content.php - perhaps the biggest uk bushcraft forum, however I've linked to the home page as it has some interesting articles in the downloads section.

    http://www.tothewoods.net/JeffsHikingPage.html - Excellent site on Lightweight camping, but even better for its hammock section - DIY hammock gear.

    Which brings me on to http://www.hammockforums.net/? - For all enquiries relating to Hammocking/Hanging out.

    http://www.jonsbushcraft.com/index.htm - Fantastic site for projects, check out the articles section for guides to kuksa carving and basket making and others.

    http://www.azbushcraft.com/index.php/f - Some good videos with hints and tips on all things bushcraft.

    http://zenstoves.net/ - Amazing site for all things related to camping stove mechanics and DIY Stove making.

    I could go on for ages, and include some specialist sites on Bow making, Slings, Spinning thread, etc...

    But these seemed the most useful ones for the basics and a little bit more.

    Of course there is also this wonderful site - Natural Bushcraft started by some bloke called Ashley, whoever he is

    Please feel free to add, but try and keep them generic or good starter sites, as I said I could specialise into all sorts, but I want this thread to be helpful to all not just sling hunters or bow makers.

    Supplied by Tim :- http://primitiveways.com/ - useful site, some repeated on wildwoodsurvival.com

    Found this as an extension of Zen stoves - http://zenbackpacking.net/

    A nice little site with some interesting tutorials - http://www.hedgehogleatherworks.com/...ation-s/29.htm

    Another good little project site - http://www.woodsmonkey.com/index.php...d=41&Itemid=63

    After Gary mentioned it I'd thought I'd add these wild food sites too:-

    Thanks Tim, some interesting stuff on there, A lot of it is reproduced on the Wildwood survival link at the top of the thread, certainly the articles written by Storm and Bow are. However it does provide some additional links that I'll have to investigate.

    Thanks again.

    I was just looking at the wild edibles section wondering if anyone knows of a link to a PDF (sort of a downloadable document/book) with monthly edibles in it because I'm sure there's lots of free food out there I'm missing. And then I realised there must be general Bushcraft info PDF's out there, and there are.
    Found this for starters, http://stealthsurvival.blogspot.com/...aft-books.html
    Like I say I'm still trying to improve my larder!!
    Cheers
