Thanks for the video I just received my Dustrude buck saw and it works great. What kind of axe and Knife/Machete were you using in this video?

Greg's First Archery Black Bear

I just wanted to thank you again John for your help in finding, retrieving, and skinning my bear. Couldn't have done it without you. The video you made is incredible!

Latest Review

SureFire Woodsman has just put out a DVD detailing the most fantastically well-thought-out bug-out vehicle I’ve ever seen, and I watched the whole first season of Doomsday Preppers, so I know what over-the-top looks like. This guy’s trailer has it all, from solar cells to wind power to first aid, camouflage, food gathering, building, repair, metalworking, welding, and the list goes on. I took some time to watch the 15-minute YouTube video of excerpts from the DVD, and the main thing I learned from it is that everyone else on the Internet is unprepared for the apocalypse when compared to this guy. - See more at: www.alloutdoor.com

Wow! Not only are you prepared, but you're all set up to go mobile in the most compact, organized, wrapped-up-tight, neat-and-pretty way I've EVER seen. To top it off... after reading through the comments, I discovered that you're a patient man, the real deal, with class and stand-up character who is able to take the high road. Thank you for the video, your willingness to help others, and your example. Wishing you all that is above and beyond what you can imagine! Smiles! Lynette Pollock

Learn the ins and outs...

I recommend this DVD to anyone who is wanting to learn all about the subject matter of being an outdoorsman. If you are living off grid, prepping for SHTF or just wanting to learn the ins and outs this DVD is for you. I was lucky enough to preview the entire DVD and I learned more about trees and their uses, what type of trees to use when building structures, building fires, and anything else that you can think of. This is something that should be in everyone's BOB or home library. ThePatriotGunner

So Much Detail

Hey surefire, hope all's good. I received the dvd's in mail. The content is very professional and very informative. You went so much into detail about types of trees and logs, building a blind for hunting. Very professional. I actually went and bought a pocket size notebook and started taking notes because it'll help out when I'm out there camping. So much info about making fire with different materials in the wilderness. These dvd's have more info than any wilderness survival shows I've seen in the past. And commentary is very well done. And over all it's top notch and definitely worth buying because it made survival in the wilderness easier. Btw I'm going to buy that folding saw. Its an amazing tool, as well as the log and wood shaving tool. magnumcr00k

I saw the ad for this on prepperlink a couple of weeks ago, clicked the link, watched the teaser video, and bought the DVD. I don't buy a lot of "survival" books or DVDs anymore because most of them don't provide anything new or unique and I could easily write my own book. That being said, this DVD was very useful and had way more than $18 worth of good ideas. I really like his approach and how he setup his trailer. Likewise, he has an excellent setup that is a good model for others to exploit. For me, this was less a call to buy a bunch of items (I have most of the same or comparable gear) but more of a system for organizing what I already have with a couple of exceptions like the Magna Grecia Italian digging hoe (bought one; got it today; really is useful as described). However, for others, this is a great guide for gear to get and how to use it.

Stoves

Hunter Stove

What a great stove! I brought my new stove on a week long camp in eastern WA in June but didn't plan to set it up since the weather is usually pleasant. The first day rained and the second day we got 2 inches of snow, and the constant wind changed my mind. The stove gave out great heat, and needless to say, we had everyone in the tent staying warm and happy (I think the horses would have been in there too if they knew I had it). It burns well and holds the heat, the dampers allow a great range of temperature, and we could usually find coals going the next morning. And it looks good, too. I didn't use the water tank until the last night, but figured out that having the water tank going gives enough humidity to keep the air from being really dried out. The only draw back is that with all the accessories stored in it, it is not only heavy but awkward to carry. I rigged up a handle to go between the leg sockets and the tie down loops which allowed me to carry it easier. An absolutely great stove that will accompany me on all my trips.

Many People Need These Videos

I know that many people need these videos, but many of them don't know it yet. I started watching Dave Canterbury a couple of years ago. Your methods, in my opinion, are much more workable and practical than the methods he uses on Dual Survivor. Most people would give up if they had to live day to day using his methods, while your methods are much more empowering, and productive. Dan Bailey Bham, Al July 15, 2011

Treasure Called Morels

To the same fellow who made the 4-part videos in regards to morel picking and preserving 'there-of': What extremely well presented videos you are offering to the viewers on You Tube. I was pleased to discover your work and thoroughly enjoyed your presentation in the collecting, cleaning and preserving the treasure called 'morels'. There is not much more to say other than 'thanks so very much, friend; well done. Continue your good work, Sweetdoughy
