Defining Bushcraft

by Woodsbum

When I get sick, like I am right now, I tend to do a lot of video searches and internet surfing to keep my mind off feeling like crap. Today I ran across a video that was made at the 2012 Woodsmoke in Idaho. Even though the video speaks for itself, I wanted to make a couple of comments.

The way that they did the overlapping circle thing to make their point was interesting. They really did a decent job of explaining how the core bushcraft skills really overlap between the following groups:

* Primitive skills
* Re-enactment and classic camping
* Modern equipment/guide camping

This was actually fairly decent insight, although they don’t break down the different skills that DO overlap. I am sure that arguments can be made for just about anything, but sitting through one of these type discussions would truly be as enlightening as it would be painful.

Here is the video. Enjoy!
