    I recently had some positive interaction with the Creek Stewart operation. I ordered the Aboriginal Tool Kit. (I'll post about that later after some photos and initial handling) I received the Mini Bow Sen tool kit. Upon contacting the folks a Creek Stewart's operations they quickly sent out the correct kit and they said keep the other kit for my trouble. (more or less) Overall very happy with customer service!

    Not wanting to profiteer from a minor mistake but more so wanting to pass on their generosity, I will be doing a GAW for the Mini Bow Sen tool kit. The tool with handle and cover, sharpening stone, wax, tool info, bow making guide.

    0.jpg
    READ THE GUIDELINES VERY CAREFULLY! Failure to comply with guidelines will result in not being eligible.

    The GAW will start today and end August 16th. Final prize to be awarded within a few day's after.

    To be eligible you must be a BushcraftUSA member. I'll ship any where that this tool is legal and you must be of legal age to own such a tool.

    Please submit a video or photos of you demonstrating something you have learned from Creek Stewart. A video is pretty straight forward. Photos would require additional written information to explain what you have shared with us. Perhaps you learned something in a TV show or other Creek's video's, Perhaps reading online, perhaps a book or written resource, perhaps in person.

    You must reference where you saw the skill, project, activity and show video/photos of your experience, process, finished product.

    After Aug. 16 I will review the thread and pick the top 3 or 4 entries. (This will be total subjective and my own opinion for what it is) From there I will do a random number generator or roll a die. Whatever is handy that day.

    I would ask that to keep the thread a little bit clean please do NOT give me an atta' boy, pat on the back, cool but I'm not in kind of post. A simple "like" will do if you do like the post.

    After entries are submitted please feel free to submit constructive responses, who knows it might influence my thought, might not though?

    Any questions please ask. :50:

    This looks interesting. Not quite up my alley, but I can see the winner being rather happy. Good on you, mate.

    Too old to play with this. If I want a bow, I'll make one with greenbacks :4:.

    This would be awesome. I have always wanted to make my own bow. Sadly in 2012 I sustained injuries to both my shoulders and have had 5 1/2 surgeries combined to both shoulders and things still aren't corrected. Drawing a bow is a bit painful nowawdays. I hope whoever wins this giveaway makes a bow and posts progress pictures throughout the process.

    I'll bump this up today as things get buried sometimes. And maybe a reminder later as well. If no submissions I'll find some other way to pass this on down the road.

    I'm in. Just need to either take photos or make a video. But I have learned a lot from Creek, from survival hacks, bug out bags and bug out vehicles. He actually sent me a fee signed copy of his survival hacks book that I used to teach the youth in my BSA troop.

    Looks like we have a couple of folks working on photos/videos! That’s GREAT! I know it takes time and effort to put up such a response so much appreciated.

    This will likely be the last reminder. About ten days to post a reply.

    I can't get my videos to upload so I guess I'm going to use pics and text.

    Haven't been able to make any videos. I'll see if I have any pictures that I can explain in detail.

    With watching Creek's show on the Weather Channel and reading some of his books and his blog post on his website I learned (before I got more into this site):
    - How to survive out on the bush for a week with only a backpack, knife and a few other odds and ends.
    - How to make a fire with a bow drill and flint and steel.
    - Different uses for a survival blanket.
    - How to use what I find to my advantage and repurpose it.
    - That a simple hike can turn bad in a second.
    And now for any outing I carry the bare minimum but I always have what I know I will need if things go sour.
    In my pack I have shelter, fire kit, fishing/hunting kit, first aid kit and a cooking kit as well as a high quality knife and a hatchet made camp axe.

    Thanks RangerWeaver! I know it takes time and effort to get the video/photo materials together! We all learn a little bit to a lot of bit from here and there and life's experiences.

    Thanks @mjh, for a cool GAW!

    @RangerWeaver: I spent some quality time studying up on survival & bugging out, including books by lots of folks including Cody Lundin, John McCann and -- most definitely -- Creek Stewart. If I were to think up stuff I learned from Creek, my list might look similar to yours. Creek pretty strongly influenced what I carry and how I might go about things. Good job, and best of luck, sir!

    The fire on the left is unwrapped and burned for 15 - 20 minutes. The partially unwrapped on the right burned for about 5.

    Well looks like we had two submissions! :dblthumb: Thanks folks! Looks like RangerWeaver got in before the posted 6PM deadline. He will receive the Mini Bow Sen.

    But for your efforts Hawkce541 I do have a small token of appreciation as well. A mini kit with small belt pouch.

    We'll follow up with some PM for send to addresses.

    Thanks again for your willingness to share your learning, experiences, and photos! :50:

    Lol. I didn't realize it was that late. I post from work, but can't put pics from my phone in there to upload. You don't have to send anything. It was a cool thing to do and I appreciate the opportunity to play along.

    I know this is completed but on one of his episodes on the Weather Channel he made cord from a coke bottle. I also liked the “why didn’t I think of that it’s so obvious “ of lashing down your whetstone to a log when you sharpen your knife in the field. That’s much safer and easier than trying to hold it.
