  Minnesota BushcraftUSA Members Day Trip #16

About

Published on Jul 4, 2013

On Sunday, June 30th, I had the chance to meet up with BushcraftUSA member Shonuffisthemaster, at the Hyland Lake Park Reserve near Bloomington, MN. This was the second time that I have visited Shonuff at the Hyland Lake Park Reserve, as he is trying to get going a twice per month meetup of local Minnesota bushcraft enthusiasts, mostly members of BushcraftUSA. The purpose of these meetups is too of course practice bushcraft skills, get in some dirt time and to just have fun. On this particular day, we worked on map reading and direction finding, wild edibles and medicinal plants, and bowdrill and friction fire methods as well as examining debris shelter construction. This video is just a sample of some of the things we accomplished during the day and I hope that it will encourage other members to get out and practice skills, get in some dirt time and have some fun.

I hope you enjoy the video and thank you for watching.
