Last winter I filmed a number of winter skills videos, which I added to my YouTube channel.

I wanted to bring them to your attention here on the Frontier Bushcraft Blog, so that you can see them all in one place.

We’re now gearing up for winter programmes (plus I have a few more winter bushcraft videos up my sleeve), so we hope this blog post whets your appetite.
