This was a tough piece. Brought and tried a really cheap saw we bought online. To bad it was really bad. LOTs of sweat. Been thinking about bringing it home to sharpen up the tooths. You guys think that'll work?⠀

High above the Boreal, it's time to reflect on a trip of a lifetime. Many days have been spent battling the winds and the rain and yet, all you can do is smile. To give yourself to the wilderness and take what may is your true reward. At times the struggle seemed never ending and yet, when the clouds broke, when the warmth of the sun shone on your face it was if the hardships never happened. Now, 2000 feet above this magical land you see things from a different perspective. The immensity of the forest, the ways the lakes and the streams connect. Suddenly, your understanding of your place in the world becomes a little clearer. Lessons are learned out here. The land of Woodland Caribou Provincial Park holds the answers.
Thanks to @joerobinetbushcraft and @myselfreliance for making these incredible memories a reality.

Another shot of the hemp backed ironwood recurve. It took an age of elves to glue down each strand of hemp but it was worth it coz this one is built to last through the ages. All of them. Dwarves, men, shape shifters, dragons and wraiths. Also, see how the shape of the wood lends to a slightly tilted handle section? I combined that with sidenocks to give it a natural ease when shooting a right handed thumb draw. Feels good :)

Fresh foraged oyster mushroom in front of a friction fire. It doesn't get better than that. Have a kid who is interested in learn how to do this? We have camps starting July 31st. #bushcraft #wildfoods #mushroom #survival #fungi #forage #mushroomhunting #mycology #organic #fungus #wilderness #thewildway #naturephotography #livewild #gotwild #paleo #wildfood #frictionfire #bowdrill #survivalskills #primitiveskills #firebyfriction #wildernessculture #westchestercounty #westchesterwithkids #oystermushrooms

Realized I never posted a picture of this back when I first made it.
Racoon was caught killing the neighbors' chickens so I shot it, skinned it, and tanned the hide using the primitive method of salting, brain tanning (swapping eggs for brains), breaking the hide, and greasing and smoking for water proofing.
I'm decent at sewing, but still pulled in @megmomx5 for help trimming and sewing together the final product.
Delay is partially because we were in the process of moving and partially because I really wanted a picture of it on my 2 year old and he wanted *nothing* to do with it. At 3, he's a little more bold.

"Then answered one of the servants, and said, "Behold, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite, that is cunning in playing, and a mighty valiant man, and a man of war, and prudent in matters, and a comely person, and the Lord is with him." 1 Samuel 16:18

The most beautiful birthday gift from Randi Coonrod. #barktan tuna & deer, #buckskin and long leaf pine needle gathered from our first walk in Florida.

All wrapped up nice and cozy in #cohesivebandage waiting for a #rawhide backing to set. It's perfect for the job ...in fact dare I say it's almost as useful as #paracord. Makes an amazing bow handle in 20 seconds
