Episode 65 of the Jack Mountain Bushcraft Podcast, recorded on Halfway Day on the spring, 2019 Wilderness Bushcraft Semester course. We catch up with the students and get some of their insights, discuss Christopher’s love affair with his new (to him) canoe, and talk about possibly differentiating the spring and fall semesters in 2020, with the spring semester being focused on training wilderness canoe and fishing guides and the fall semester focusing on bushcraft and primitive living skills.

Episode 64 of the Jack Mountain Bushcraft Podcast is about how all outdoor knowledge is local knowledge, and how the idea of a global expert is a myth. For the episode I was joined by old friend and frequent podcast guest Blake Towsley.

Is it still hunting (as opposed to shooting) if you use a drone to find game? Is it ethical? Is it legal? This is the topic of conversation in this mini episode, filmed on location, between Ed and Max, with Brian returning to the podcast to lend his thoughts as well. (We were in Brian’s workshop filming a video for the YouTube channel.)

You can check out UAV rules in New Hampshire pertaining to the use of drones being prohibited for hunting, fishing and trapping.

//CORRECTION!// IT IS LEGAL TO HUNT WITH WALKIE TALKIES HERE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. However, there used to be a law that said you couldn’t drive deer with anything electronic. With cell phones it’s impossible to enforce that law. This is a good example of how difficult it is to write laws that stand the test of time with technology coming up with products that find loopholes.

For episode 63 of the JMB Podcast we gathered with the students on the current Wilderness Bushcraft Semester in the Guide Shack on a cool morning before heading down to the river. We check in with Jeremy and Anthony and get their perspective on the course, the realities of living outdoors, using hand tools, and how their experience is unfolding.

Episode 62 is about how to know a place. Part of what we teach on our immersion programs is how to be at home in the forest. This includes both academic and experiential components, which we discuss. We also talk about the Masardis glacier and give an update about our articulation agreement with the University of Maine at Presque Isle.

Episode 61 is about standards-based professional training. We’re speaking to potential students and giving them an idea of what to expect. In a nutshell, it’s hard, there’s a lot of work, and you have to be mature to to deal with the adversity it produces in a positive way.

When things don’t go your way, it’s important to know that things worth working for are often difficult, and to realize that difficulty is part of the process. If it were all easy, what would be the point of spending time and energy on it?

For more on this topic, see the older post titled Mental Toughness Is The Key To Training.

April is here and that means salmon season. Max and Ed talk about the opening day on Lake Winnipesaukee. Another topic is the abundance of coyotes and a horrifying experience an acquaintance of Ed’s went through involving coyotes and her dog. By the way, do you say “Kai-Yo-Tee” or “Kai-Oat”? Let us know in the comments.

Ed also explains how modern tree stands came out about, and Max shows his new Spyderco Tenacious, which forces him to admit something about the Spyderco that Ed gave him a few years back.

Finally, Ed and Max talk about literature, because that’s the woodsman’s way. Thanks for listening.

Viewers of the YouTube channel will recognize him from numerous videos, and also the intro to most videos shows him planing an ash log to make a long bow. Brian has spent a lifetime learning his craft and can carve wood, stone, ivory, bone, antler, ice, and pretty much everything else.

The Jack Mountain Bushcraft Podcast is back. After an extended stay off the grid running our winter programs, we’re back in the world with new episodes. Episode 59 is all about the Brushfire Rendezvous, coming to the field school October 11-13, 2019. Before we get to talking about it, we discuss the events of the day before recording the episode which consisted of pulling a 1994 Ski-Doo Grand Touring out of deep, powdery snow over and over again in an effort to pack down a trail.

Blake and Christopher joined me in the guide shack for the episode.
