jbarrow is absolutely right.  The best instructional videos (DVDs) on the market, winner of multiple Telly Awards.  The first 5 DVDs are absolutely essential.

Hey dude! Welcome to the hoodlums forum! Limey is right Texas is a survival state! Many a famous and capable hoodlum hails from down there!! We have a few token Canadians here of which I am one (and even one Australian and a Brit that are quite active on here) but mostly made up of ...good ol' red blooded 'Mericans!! Heart

This forum is an awesome survival resource and home away from home, you can make great friendships, sell or buy used gear and exchange gear in give aways, read about stories trips, see and learn about everything from atl atl's to zyclon B gas...we sometimes have gatherings where we learn cool skills! 

On the forum alone in about 4 years I have went from knowing basically nothing to building my own bows and arrows, flintknapping, weaving cordage, hunting, braintanning a deer hide, sleeping in a teepee, identifying wild plants and eating them ...achieving (finally) friction fire, the members here know their shit errr stuff--that basically means you regulars are the bees knees (to all youz whoz dont appreciate my colorful truck stop language)

Posts of you doing your thing with or without pics are ALWAYS welcome!

They are correct about the DVD's eh...they are addictive and by far the best on the market--much more interesting and engaging than the majority of youtube vids ect, I have all the DVD's now and sometimes when I'm having an off day-- jonesing for the outdoors and thinking of throwing my computer out a window or telling my boss to shove it Big Grin Angel --i come home and put one on...almost as good as actually being out there.

Davy Crockett went to Texas and died. I just wanna go there before I die! Welcome!
Message of Insight and Unity 

We go into the wilderness to fulfill our hearts and empty our minds of life's garbage.
The gear we leave behind and the challenges we encounter, 
Are methods we use to cleanse our spirits.
Of Survivalists and Bushcrafters, Primitive Technologists too, we are one.........

It is the wilderness within, we strive for first and always.
Not everyone can have a cabin in the mountains.
The thread that connects us, is fine like silk and strong as steel.
Together, the song of the wilderness is the song we sing!

"And can I say something else?"
Bushcrafting is "doing what you want to do." 
Survival is "doing what you have to do"
Primitive Technology is about all of the above........
