    I am a native Arkansawyer, but have lived in Louisiana for 12 years. I grew up in Cabot, are you close to there?

    I left Cabot the first time in 1978. I moved back in 1983, then left again in 1990 and have been gone ever since. I still have family in Cabot and make it up there at least every 3 or 4 months.

    Arkansas Bushcrafters

    Hi. I live a few miles S. of Harrison. I would love to be involved in day hikes, or camping, with others interested in bushcraft. I am slow moving due to physical problems, but I get where I'm going. I would like to start one of those groups for Ozark Mountains Bushcrafters, but haven't figured it out, yet. Feel free to PM me if interested in getting together sometime.

    Sorry for the slow reply. I keep forgetting to look down in this forum and check in.:8:

    My favorite spots are: Hare Mt area, Spirits Creek, Buckhorn Creek and Hurricane Creek Wilderness area though the last one it's been ages since I've made it over there.

    Can any of you fellow Ozarkians tell me if there is much in the way of tinder fungus in these hills, what type trees it grows on, and maybe provide some pics?

    I'm in NW Arkansas, my shop and home are in Gentry.

    Me and my 3 boys love bushcraft. My boys live on the creek as soon as it starts warming up... fishing and woods bumming.

    2stick - we got enough folks for sure....I'm just crazy busy until about october...but that's cool - it will be under 100by then...maybe! lol.

    I think we should try something this fall. It's blazing hot thru sept...but of course we gotta do it in front of deer season too...I don't know... but it sounds like a cool deal
