Wild Spirit Bushcraft
Bushcraft Kit List
A Bushcraft Kit List is essential whenever roaming around in the wilderness. However as you knowledge increases less equipment you need to carried. All the kit you need is all around you, all you need is the ability to harvest it. However as we set out on this journey of discovery, a bushcraft kit is advised, especially if your travelling the the far Northern hemisphere.
Firstly a knife, axe, shaping stone, rope, and some cooking utensils in a good start. Equally important consider a light weight quality tent or Hammock with a roof would be preferred. Thirdly sleeping bag and mosquito net is also a good choice among other things. Comparatively, in the modern world we are spoilt for choice regarding Bushcraft equipment.
