Youtube channels for outdoor skills
« on: October 21, 2014, 11:01:12 PM »
I've been watching a lot of Ray Mears videos on Youtube and would love other suggestions for learning outdoor skills. The nice thing about Ray Mears is he does some product reviews, but a lot of the ones I've found just teach skills. That's what I'm looking for.

That channel got me interested into Bush blacksmithing and the forge I am building is similar to what Dave built. Great channel!

Someone listed this one few weeks ago. Doesn't have alot of videos but I watched them all in a row one night instead of going to sleep.

I like this Swiss guy's channel, he's usually not doing the hard kickass survival, but has some good ideas and techniques anyway :

I used to watch Dave Canterbury's videos a lot, but lately he's doing more like home-tinkering vids than survival. I can see his point in those as well, but don't really watch them much, as I usually know that stuff already. I really like the old vids he made though and I still buy at his eshop now and then. Like his brand canteen set and the bushpot.

considering the amount of stuff he has covered, his way of doing things, and his age, I'll give him a pass. Besides I always like to see what others in this sphere think we should know.

OK, there are definitely some guys out there that are more pros or with a lot more experience, but there was one guy I was following for a little while that Kinda had an interesting style and it was neat because you could tell he was a green and was learning some of it as he went, and I found that helpful because he would explain things in a way that wasn't over my head.

Four Directions Bushcraft
He introduced me to that wood. I've never heard of fatwood before.

As a disclaimer though he started making fatwood products, and then other products, and then for a while his channel became fairly commercialized. And that turned me off. I don't know if he has gotten past that, and done more skills and wilderness videos, or if the channel hasn't recovered. You're welcome to check it out and make your own decision.
