These are what I consider to be seven of the best bushcraft-related channels on YouTube. There’s a wealth of outdoor knowledge and experience on these channels. When you have some time to spare, check them out.



Sean Emery is quite a character. His videos on hammock camping and ultralight backpacking in the piney woods are informative, creative, and so funny. He backpacks, he sings, he plays music, and he rides a unicycle. You’ll find him active on several forums, including hammockforums and backpackinglight. Shug’s vids were instrumental in getting me hooked on using a hammock and tarp for backpacking. One of my favorites.



Adirondack Woodsman

SkogKniv is a woodsman and craftsman. His channel has original bushcraft content as well as documentaries on primitive living and bushcrafting. You’ll find him active the bushcraftusa forum. He spent most of his bush time in the wild forests of the Adirondacks.




Paul Kirtley is bushcraft instructor and blogger who is passionate about bushcraft, nature, and wilderness travel. He runs Frontier Bushcraft, a wilderness bushcraft school, offering bushcraft courses and wilderness expeditions. Paul is one of only a few people worldwide who have been recognized by Ray Mears as a bushcraft instructor. He has produced some excellent videos that he shares on YouTube and Vimeo. You’ll also find links on his website to the videos.




Dave Canterbury and the Pathfinder School LLC have produced an amazing number of informative videos about bushcraft, survival, primitive living, and self-sustainability. Dave is always trying new techniques, improving his knowledge, and then passing on what he learns. This is in keeping with the Pathfinder vision to share and educate.




Dave Wendall of Bushcraft on Fire is an excellent instructor in all aspects of bushcraft including shelter, fire, water procuraction, wild foods, bushcrafting tools, & more. He is a down-to-earth guy without pretense. He shares what he knows through his many videos, which are well done.




Mike Dixon of Stoneage Bushcraft is a climber, mountaineer, bushcrafter, hiker and a conservationist spending most of my time in the real outdoors. He teaches wilderness living skills, bushcraft and survival techniques. His videos include trip



Eat the Weeds

While not technically a “bushcrafter,” Green Deane and EatTheWeeds is the most watched foraging channel on YouTube. Well over 140 episodes on foraging and using various species of plants for food, medicine, and survivability. Check out the blog on his website too. Green’s writing, photos, and videos are invaluable. Love his videos.


I hope this post will encourage you to take a look at some of the great bushcrafting video resources available on YouTube . If you know anyone who might benefit from this post then please share it with friends on Twitter, Facebook, etc.
