    Experiences buying from huntingandknives?

    Hi all, I recently purchased a knife from huntingandknives.co.uk. It's been a over 2 weeks since the order was placed (payment was made via PayPal), and although I did get an order confirmation email the day the order was placed, I haven't had any further emails or shipping/tracking...

    Hunter Gatherer On Meat Alone.

    On Meat Alone. Copyright Keith. 18/4/11 The list of period foods is quite long, but whose foods are they? Would a woodsrunner bother to carry dried peas, parched corn, oats & currents? Somehow I don’t think so. It all adds to the weight, & sooner or later it has to run out, & what then? Well, he...

    Skills Tomahawk Throwing & How To Throw A Tomahawk For Beginners.

    Tomahawk or axe throwing is a good survival skill to learn, as it can be used in defence, & for hunting. Tomahawk throwing is also a competition sport & good entertainment when you have some free time. Keith.

    Food & Water Fauna Foods In The Uk.

    I thought perhaps a list of food animals available in the UK might be a good idea, especially those less thought of these days. My Father was born in 1904, I I remember him telling me about how the poorer village children would hunt for food using sticks & catapults. So I will start off this...

    Hunter Gatherer The Whys & Wherefores Of Survival Hunting.

    First of all I must explain that I am not a sporting shooter, I only hunt for food or in order to kill a feral predator. Hunting for food is a lot different to hunting for sport. When you are hunting for food, especially in a survival situation, it is vitally important that you bring home the...

    Hunter Gatherer All About Flintlocks. Part Two.

    A lot of people when they first venture into the world of muzzleloaders choose to purchase a percussion lock muzzle-loader. There is nothing wrong in this, these percussions work just fine. The only reasons I prefer a flintlock over a percussion is because the percussion requires caps to make...

    Safe & Secure Flintlock Muzzle-loading Guns, Rifles & Pistols.

    This post is in response to earlier requests for more information on firearms. I do NOT consider my guns to be weapons, I think of them as tools, but of course they can be used for defence as well as hunting & in the case of a flintlock, the lock can be used to make fire. My .32 caliber...

    Hunter Gatherer Hunting & Trapping.

    I started hunting & trapping as a kid in the UK, hunted there for about 10 years, meat for the table. Mostly rabbit,hare & wood pigeon. Now we purchase all our meat because I love to see all the wildlife about the place, but I hunted for meat for the table here for about 30 years, mostly with a...
