This Big stag proving he's head of the heard protecting his breeding rights from the young bucks. #deers#stag#getoutdoors#survivalofthefittest#darwinianevolution#hunting#deerstalking
Practice makes perfect. These young bucks practicing their rutting moves. #nature#deers#stags#survivalofthefittest#darwiniantheory#beautifulbeasts#deerstalkinguk#hunting#getoutdoors
Spotted this magnificent beast lay down among the bracken out walking with @coathangermoments #walking#getoutdoors#deer#stag#buck#antlers#hunting#deerstalkinguk#beautifulbeast#naturephotography
A little Saturday carving. Half way through this blackthorn spoon. Loving the colours running through the heartwood.#bushcraft#bushcraftknife#bushcrafttools#handmadeknife#spooncarving#woodcarving#relaxingday
I came home after a very very wet miserable day at work to this amazing gift of 3  different sized Sami style oil skin bags, a bar of wax with its own pouch and a cable tidy from @blueangelical πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€— your quality is second to non! Amazing and British made! Check his products out. You sir are a true gentleman. Thank you so much 😊 πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»#bushcraft #samistyle#outdoors#bushcraftkit#oldschooltrading#handmade

Doing confined space work all day today so spent the day in the dark as a tunnel rat. Open ended so no need for full BA just had escape sets just in case. #confinedspaces#confinedspacesafety#lovemyjob#adventure
A proper autumnal πŸ‚ morning this morning! The view outside my homestead gates this morning. The ghosts of cows moving through the morning mist washed in golden sun rays. #countrysidelife#countryside#fields#autumn🍁#photography#morning
Fire πŸ”₯ dispeller of darkness, bringer of warmth and lifter of spirits! #bushcraft#fire#wildcampinguk
Having a frittata for dinner tonight! First camping weekend with no meat involved!!! #bushcraft#wildcamping#wildcooking#fire#castironskillet#goodeats
Bit of campfire carving. This spoon is carved from drag horn schumac. Look at those colours πŸ‘€!! #bushcraft#carving#fire#wildcampinguk
Been way too long since I spent a night in the woods. So this is a 2 day jaunt.  Come to a secret little place down in Sussex that I've not been too in a couple of years.  Time to catch up and revisit some skills and techniques. #bushcraft#hultsbruk1697#fire#woodland#ddtarp#tripod#pothanger#reset#rekindle
My first ever attempt on a lathe.  Made this little goblet from field maple.  Big enough for a dram of rum. #woodcarving#polelathe#goblet#gameofthronesinspired#firstattempt#bushcraft
Old vs New. Finally got a #raymears fire steel.  Time to put my old one out to pasture had it about 10 years and been on a lot of adventures and provided a lot of warmth and hot food (you know the time I'm talking about @tree_ninja_esq). #bushcraft#firelightingskills#firesteel#woodlore#kitthatlasts
Just picked up a Siva Expedition 15 for 25 quid! Bargain! #bushcraft#silvacompass#explore#outdoors
Making char cloth in my honey stove, note the exhausts coming from the centre hole catch alight.  You know when char cloth is ready when there is no longer and smoke coming from the centre hole.  Char cloth under goes incomplete combustion which is why it so readily takes a spark.

Meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria) grows in wetlands and along rivers and lakes.  Is edible, but more medicinal.  The flowers contain salicylic acid, have quite a strong taste of root beer for my American brethren and germolene for my British counter parts (a lot easier on the teeth than willow bark πŸ˜‰). The young leaves taste a little like the flower but have a sweet stronger aftertaste of watermelon (I think anyway). #bushcraft#plantidentification#plantid#naturalremedies

10 years strong πŸ’ͺ with this Hultsbruk classic hunting axe. Great at brute work and delicate carving I do it all with this axe. #bushcraft#hultsbruk1697#axe#carving
