Welcome to!
Bushcraft is a term that's employed to express an understanding of our natural environment and of the wild and how to live comfortably within it.

We provide an excellent discussion forum replete with bushcrafters, both seasoned and beginner, offering a broad wealth of knowledge and experience and a strong community atmosphere, so join up today and get stuck in to the banter!

I'd encourage our members and visitors to send in any articles, kit reviews, tutorials or anything you think may be of interest to the bushcraft world! Please email to info[@]

Old news maybe but I've just noticed that Ray Mears is set to release his autobiography in September, coinciding with a brand new nationwide lecture tour. I see he's coming to my local theatre so I may just buy a ticket myself!

I'm sure it'll be a thoroughly interesting read...

Frontier Stove

This particular wood-burning stove is a recent addition to the market from Camping Solutions, having been launched to the general public in October 2010. There are many different varieties of wood stoves and fireboxes available for the bushcraft/camping community, Tenttipi alone seem to produce over a dozen, but what’s interesting about the Frontier Stove is that it wasn’t originally designed for general sale. Instead it was designed in conjunction with the humanitarian community for use in Third World countries to assist with disaster relief and aid projects.

Hi everybody, as I'm sure you've probably noticed the forum has been down for some time now, we encountered a serious problem and are having difficulty restoring the forum to it's former state. Please be patient as it may take some time to get it sorted.  I will send out an email alerting you when we are back up and running but until then I'd ask you not to visit the forum url to avoid straining the server.

51d1bmmyeal. sl500 aa300 Many bushcrafters and outdoorsmen will have at least a passing familiarity with the art of foraging, whether that be as simple as gathering blackberries or heading outdoors to regularly supplement your meals with the wild greens, roots and fruits available around us.
However, unless you’re an expert botanist in the making, the chances are you’re knowledge is not as full as it could be (I know mine isn’t) and if you’re serious about foraging you’re really going to need a field guide that tells you what to eat, where to find it and how best to cook it!



UK Government approve badger culling

The British Government have approved plans to introduce badger culling in an effort to combat the spread of Bovine Tuberculosis. The proposal is for two pilot studies next year, followed by a wider rollout if successful. This is a difficult one. Badgers are protected animals under UK and EU law, but the government can approve culling to prevent disease. Bovine TB is a serious issue and reportedly costs the UK £100million a year, but a cull doesn't seem to me to be an effective policy. From what I've read there are serious concerns that badger culls could actually make the problem worse....
