At first, he started to upload videos on basic bushcraft skills.
Note – bushcraft skills include container construction from natural materials, hand-carving wood, water sourcing, foraging, navigation by natural means, shelter-building, fishing, hunting, tracking, firecraft, and the use of tools such as axes and knives.
Basically, bushcraft is about living in the natural environment, and the acquisition of the knowledge and skills to do so.
The majority of his bushcraft camping videos consist of him explaining how to harvest materials from nature and putting them together to create tipis (a tent that is typically made of animal skins upon wooden poles), fire reflectors, and lean-tos.
According to the channel description:
”This channel is mainly bushcraft style camping trips, sometimes I build a natural shelter, sometimes I sleep in a tent, under a tarp, or in the snow.”
The most popular video on the channel is titled – ”Solo Bushcraft Camp. 2 Nights in the Snow – Natural Shelter, Minimal Gear.” The video was uploaded on November 30, 2016, and it has over 7.5 million views.
The second most popular video on the channel is named – ”Overnight Bushcraft Camp with my Dog – Long Fire, Wool Blanket, Fire Reflector.” The video has more than 6.9 million views and it was uploaded on February 2, 2017.
