Pinhey’s Point Bushcraft Demo’s

Bushcraft demo's at Pinhey's Point

(Dunrobin area on the Ottawa River)

For those of you who made it, thanks for dropping by the last couple of sessions at Pinhey's Point Park. I actually had one person create a bow and drill fire after a short lesson...very unusual to get on first couple of attempts. Jeff Helmes blacksmith is parked beside me and one can likely get a striker of knife blank made on the spot. The next two events I plan to attend there are on September 5th and 12th.  Drop in an chat about bushcraft! Many other set-ups are there for viewing too.
