    I head into the woods to learn basic beginner bushcraft tips from Bushcraft & Survival instructor Paul Kirtley. This long, informative video goes through a number of different techniques on how to use an axe, a knife, setup camp and light a fire. This video covers some very useful skills that can help to enhance your knowledge of Bushcraft and potentially help you in a survival situation. Myself and Paul also setup a camping spot to do an overnight. I opt for a hammock and tarp setup, as the bugs are still around. Paul goes for a ground sleeping setup with tarp overhead.

    I don’t mean to shoot this guy down but, This guy taught the simplest things. I was hoping to learn something new but this video was a waste of time. He’s definitely a woodsman but I personally think he’s not in a place yet to teach anyone anything yet.

    As he's splitting logs at around the 40 minute mark. It looks like it would be easier to try the cut like a golf swing from the side rather than behind you. Just looks bad ergonomically.

    Sideways wood splitting like you did is the worst way possible. You split up and down; the way you showed is just plain wrong. Just look at your crooked body swinging awkwardly sideways. This method of splitting wood is not the best... Far from it, it might injure your back.

    I would like more on drill and hearth materials from different environments---not just "the best" or your favorite. Many in the South-West like Yucca. What are the principles?
