Mountain men.. .. . anyone watching this on history channel, a great show one of tonight episodes covered fur trapping by a great pair of old timers who trap by canoe and a very good detailed hand forging of a knife. My new top show! Recommended and just as much if not more to be learnt here than from other survival and bushcraft shows.

And have you noticed that most of them are tough old boys from the older generation

Watch enough of IG and you will because its his lifeline. He may not bother to much with shelters simply because he knows which side of a bush to sleep under and exactly where to site his fire

A few episodes made it on Youtube. At least I believe it's the same show. I thought it was a very much staged show? But maybe it's something different on Youtube?
