New in Houston

Postby Jrg24 » Mon Aug 21, 2017 12:16 pm

Hello all. I am new to bushcraft but not to camping/outdoor recreation. I found this forum while searching for information more specific to our region regarding flora and fauna. I have been reading "Bushcraft" by Mors Kochanski, which has been a very good read, but since it is more geared to northern climates, some suggestions are not completely relavent.

I am interested in Bushcraft primarily because I like to make things but I do not have a shop, or any sort of space to persue woodworking or anything like that. Plus, I like learning antiquated skills. There is a discipline required that I find satisfying. Bushcraft gives me the ability to effectively combine two hobbies into one.

Anyway, I look forward to posting and reading in the future.

Welcome to the forum. What you said right there is why this community exists. " it is more geared to northern climates" Texas is a very large and unique place.

Welcome to the fire brother! There are a few wild edible books and stuff that are more Texas specific. The SAS survival guide is still in the middle of being read butbso far so good. Charles w Kane has a decent book. Better to get out with a few fellas here and let them learn ya s thing or two

I have the Kane wild edibles book and Merriweather's book is on order. What I would really like to find is a book thats says "This is how you identify this tree, and this is what its best uses are." That may be a bit much to ask, but it would be nice!
