What is The Bushcraft Journal?

The Bushcraft Journal is an online magazine working closely with many of the world’s leading outdoor guides and survival experts bringing you a  variety of first-hand knowledge based skills, step by step guides, how-to’s, hints and tips, and wonderful stories of travel and adventure from many different continents.

Our writers and contributors have spent many years honing these skills to a very high level in the countries they live, but have spent many weeks at a time living, learning and working closely with  cultures around the world who still use these ‘Bushcraft’ skills that have been used for thousands of years.

The goal of The Bushcraft Journal is to cover all you need to enhance your journey in the natural world so you will be able to immerse yourself safely and comfortably in it for longer periods of time, regardless of your age or skill level or global location.

With the right skills and a better understanding you need less equipment making being outdoors a far better experience as you won’t be carrying a big heavy bag full of kit you never use, but it enables you to enjoy living and working in harmony will the natural world!



Having just read the first issue of The Bushcraft Journal I can attest to it being as advertised and more. At over 90 full pages (as a .PDF) covering a wide range of topics you will most certainly learn and appreciate something new in The Bushcraft Journal. While very informative, the layout is also well done containing great pictures and diagrams just where needed in explaining each of the 16 separate articles in this premiere issue. And by the way, NO ads!  Yeah!

The list of core contributors Bushcraft Journal founder Danny Reid has assembled will keep them flush with knowledge to share, but it doesn’t stop with this core group. According to Danny, you can expect many more writers from around the globe to contribute.

A yearly subscription of 6 issues is the better value at 19.99 British Pounds, and as of this review, equates to just under $30 U.S. While that sounds like a lot, considering each magazine is close to 100 pages and you get 6 issues, that’s close to a 600 full PDF pages of information, so the price is inline with quantity, but the value in my mind is greater with the quality I have seen thus far.
