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

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.

Hard Work

Thanks Surefire for all your hard work and sharing with us like minded folks. Look forward to each new video. Thanks again. ThePatriotGunner

What to do when things go wrong

This is the best information I've ever seen on chainsaw use and felling trees. I have always been amazed at the skill and confidence a good sawman/arborists displays in felling trees. Well, Surefire Woodsman shows you the secrets and common sense methods to felling trees yourself, with a focus on safety, and what's required to get the job done, and just as importantly, what to do when things don't go as planned. I strongly recommend you get his DVD's and share them with family and friends. splungecreek

DVD Comment

Hello John,
Just finished watching "the informed woodsman" and was wondering when the next ones will be ready for sale?
thanks!

The DVD is very informative and the quality is superb. Many "how-to" videos have a very grainy amateurish substance to them but yours is very well done. I can hardly wait until you have the others out on the market.

Common Sense

Hey John, Your videos are really important to get out. I think your prices are too low. Personally, I think 49 to 65 dollars would be reasonable, besides, where else can you get this kind of information all laid out for you? The tree felling DVD was so simple and common sense oriented that it has given me some new ideas about what to do on my properties.

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.
