Video 7 Longbow Tube for Airlines

This video shows my longbow tube I made for airline travel with my longbows. The above podcast goes into complete detail about traveling with traditional equipment. But it was hard to explain how I made my cap system on the longbow tube. So I made this video to offer a little visual support.

Video 6 Awesome Black Bear Hunt

This is a video of one of my black bear hunts a couple years ago. Not only did I capture the hunt on film I also got some amazing footage after my hunt was over.  When my tag was filled I decided to leave the bow at camp and sit in a ground blind with just my camera. The ground blind was positioned only about 7-10 yards from the bait so this very up close and personal. I cut some of the sound out to put it here as my full version was set to music is spots and I had to cut it down to fit it on here.

Episode 6 Making Fire


The ability to make a fire in all conditions in the wilderness is one of the most important tools we need. As hunters and outdoorsman we spend as much time as we can in an environment that can make life miserable in a real hurry. The ability to make fire in all conditions is vital for are welfare when things get ugly. The ability to make fire is also a “right of passage” in my opinion as a woodsman. This podcast will teach you everything you need to know about making fire in the wild.

There is also a video that offers visual support to this podcast. The video is listed a little further down the home page. It’s called video 1 “All about fire”.  I actually chose to publish the video as the very first video because it is that important. The podcast would have been first but I didn’t want to edit the numbering system in the actual podcasts if I would have changed them around. I already had the first 5 podcasts recorded before I made the fire video.
