Dude, You’re Screwed
is a new Discovery T.V. show starting this Sunday, December 8th at 10 eastern.  One of the cast, Tom “Tomahawk” Moore, has shared his knowledge and travels on some popular internet forums over the years, so you may already be familiar with Moore.   Chad and I first met Tom in person at Woodsmoke;  needless to say, the guy is very knowledgable and a lot of fun.  Here is a Discovery video on Tomahawk.  I hope the T.V. gods do Tom justice.  If they don’t, we still have his amazing blog, one of the best ones out there (period!).   By the way, Tomahawk is an instructor with our good friend Tim Smith of the Jack Mountain Bushcraft School…

And speaking of Tim Smith and his school, USA Today just published an article on December 3rd; 12 survival schools that could save your life.  Of course the Jack Mountain Bushcraft School is listed and we whole heartily agree!  As you will see in the Master Woodsman directory of schools under Survival Training, we have a relationship, attended, and/or know by reputation several of the schools on their list.  We also have some other great schools they missed too.  We suggest you check them out.

A couple more updates…

The much anticipated second issue of the American Frontiersman magazine will hit newsstands around Dec. 17th.  Harris Publications did a great job on the first issue.  With the authors they have lined up and what they have done with their New Pioneer magazine, the second issue should be even better.  🙂
