    Has anybody seen these 'bushcraft' dvds??


    ADVERTISEMENT
    I came across it on ebay while looking for survival and bushcraft dvds. They don't cover a lot of the topics I would have hoped for but they might be worth a try. They are costly though-$36/ea.! It's called Pioneering:The Longhunter Series and they have 4 volumes thus far.

    Also I am trying to obtain as many survival/bushcraft/wilderness skill oriented dvds as I can because they are always good watching so I'm greatful for any titles you might know that fit the criteria.
    Here's a list of what I have so far:
    Hoods Woods-
    Survival Basics 1&2
    Advanced Survival Guide
    Woodsmaster vol. 10-SOLO Camping
    Woodsmaster vol. 11 Survival Camping

    Dave Canterbury's Primitive Skills 1&2(didn't like this one)

    Ray Mears'-
    Extreme Survival-complete series(season1-3)
    Northern Wilderness
    Bushcraft vol.2(just ordered and on it's way)

    Dick Proenneke-
    Alone in the Wilderness 1&2

    Happy People:A year in the Taiga(this don't play in my region free player so I'm lucky I watched most of it on Youtube)

    Birchtree Productions-
    Bushcraft and Survival vol. 5(not great, but other volumes seem more promising)

    Les Stroud-Snowshoes and Solitude

    The Alaskan Wilderness Adventure(a documentary from the 70's filmed by a family living in the Alaskan bush-pretty rare find I think)
    ...and my DVR has most of the Survivorman series, Man vs. Wild, Man, Woman, Wild, Dual Survival, Out of the Wild:The Alaska Experiment, Apocalypse Man, Mountain Men(new series), Alaska:The Last Frontier, and the documentary by Ed Wardell-Alone in the Wild.
    And for 'Hollywood' movies I have Jeremiah Johnson, Man in the Wilderness and Mountain Men.
    -And I have watched 'Far Out'-Heimo's Arctic Refuge a couple times too.

    Now I know I have quite a bit but I know there has to be stuff I have never come across, so if you have suggestions I'd love to hear them. I am partial to winter/arctic survival and skills.

    the Mark Baker series is "experimental archaeology" . He is a well known and highly respected reinactor of the 18th century. I enjoyed the series quite a lot.
    I have about all of the Ray Mears DVDs and have watched them repeatedly over the last several years. I just discovered a new one with him and Ewen Mcgregor in Honduras that was good. It was on youtube.
    you will want to get the other bushcraft set and the other extreme survival if you can.
    Have you seen any of "the bushtucker man"? I enjoyed those as well!
    hope this helps...

    I find the videos by Ray Mears to be most enjoyable to watch. He has a humble way about him.

    I forgot to add that you can meet Les Hiddens "the bushtucker man"
    on the series "Ray Mears goes walkabout" another excellent series.

    You don't get that time back you know! This series is terrible!! My buddy has it and we once watched it backed to back (I think we were hung over....it seemed like a good idea). Nothing in there isn't already covered elsewhere.

    As for the other region stuff...perhaps I can help?

    Drop me a PM

    Thanks, you have helped a good deal and I will check out bushcraft man asap. I own seasons 1,2 & 3 of Extreme Survival and was under the impression that that was the entire series. Is there a 4th season? I checked ray website and only see the 3 I have.

    An interesting read is,"The Final frontiersman". It is the true story of Heimo Korth who left work as a factory worker in Wisconsin and went to Alaska to try to be a mountain man. It goes with his up's and down's and how it took him 2 tries to do it after almost dyeing the first attempt. The book is written by his cousin who went up above the Arctic Circle and lived with him for a while to get the information to write the book.I found the book a fascinating read with the truthfulness in the writing.The other DVD I did not see listed was John "Lofty" Wiesmans survival DVD.

    I didn't know Lofty had a dvd, what's the title? And I have seen Heimo's documentary on Youtube called Far Out-Heimo's Arctic Refuge which was really good. But I'll check into the book too as I'd like to hear a little bit more about his life in WI he left behind.

    Dick Proenneke is an amazing man. You can see some of his things on youtube and his cabin is now a national monument. He was the first Les Strout
