Hunting Primitive Fire Materials
« on: March 28, 2016, 06:55:06 PM »
The Female in my life has been begging me for a Hike.
So I jumped her in the back seat and went to the woods.
Cottonwood is my favorite for bow and drill.
If you have cordage and find trees like these,and the chops
to make a bow drill fire,your done.
Its all here, Spindle, Hearth, the Inner Bark makes the best Tinder.
The slab outer Barks makes the best hand socket.


My haul for the Day.

Walking the creek bed found this Rock, threw sparks like crazy.
So in the Pack it goes.

Cottonwood Punk, Char it up for Flint and Steel, Great stuff.

Sage Brush Bark, makes awesome Tinder.
 

Red osier Dogwood, I cut some small Branches to dry out for Hand Drill
on Cottonwood.



Cedar Fence Post, Makes great Bow Drill Wood.

Great Day Outside.....

I ordered a Maxpedition Rolly Polls tonight. Hooks on your belt  and unfolds when needed. Makes a great foraging bag....for times like this.  Good for Chaga, punk wood , birch bark...etc.

Your post reminds me of the need for a gathering bag.

I've always preferred a good jumping in the back seat before my outings as well.

Sorry, couldn't resist... >:D
