    Default Ray Mears' Bushcraft Youtube videos

    It rained for a couple of days so, I watched ALL (I think) of Ray Mears' videos about bushcraft on Youtube. It was enjoyable, informative and motivating.

    I enjoy his videos and have consider buying some of his DVD's. I like the fact that his videos are not only instructional but he gives some good history. The America one with "trapper Jake" is a must see, IMO. Maybe because it is the closest to me

    Love the Mears.

    Ray Mears is the tops. His shows are always informative and enjoyable.

    You know those, "if you could take 3 items into the bush" type things. Mr Mears would be one of mine. He would also be one of my multi-use items.

    Edit: Not sure if it's on youtube, but try to find his Northern Wilderness series. It was so good I bought the book!

    Raining again today so, I watched some of Dave Canterbury's vids. I picked up on a couple of good ideas. However, I think the videos were too amateurish. IMO, he should have hired a professional team to help.

    I think it was Dave Canterbury's You Tube channel that got him noticed and placed on the show Dual Survival.

    I would say you are probably right, I also think I heard him mention that because of his contract with discovery channel he can not upload new video's of himself onto his youtube channel. Thats why there are many other people from his pathfinder school uploading vids on his channel.

    I could see that being the case. Too bad.
