Best Bushcraft Knife for under $75!

A Survival Crossbow
By Joshua G. Hamlin
We, at Sigma 3, recently posted a video on how to make a survival crossbow. I would love to take credit for inventing this crossbow, but I cannot.

Bushcraft Camp Hygiene

Smoke Baths and All Natural Deodorant

The technique I use more than any other to keep from stinking is the woods has got to be taking a smoke bath. It is surprisingly effective and has long lasting effects. All you need do is to consistently expose your skin and clothes to smoke and it will not only keep you from stinking but you will smell like a well smoked roast! Yum. And this also helps to keep the bugs off

But how does a smoke bath work you ask? Well it works because smoke kills bacteria and bacteria is what […]
