    Survival Lilly is builds a great base camp. Far North Bushcraft and Survival is just inspiring.

    Couldn't give you a name. But the video series is called primitive technologies. I'm guessing he gets a lot of off camera labor help. Or one video is shot over a very long time. Don't know how relevant any of it is to us since we'd have an axe and wouldn't make a stone one. But if you like to find the most dead simply way to do something. This guy will show you. From clay work to stone tools to iron smelting.

    McQ is a gem. A skilled communicator both in the quality of speech and quality of video. Pays serious attention to what he does. Comparable to Virtuovice on sharpening and some bushcraft topics. He is serious about knives and sharpening.

    I like some of the aforementioned YouTubers, and to that list I'd add Corporal's Corner. Great stuff! Lilly is great, Bushcraft Stephanie is funny and interesting, Alfie is a hoot.

    I watch quite a few. Joe Robinet was the first bushcraft channel to earn a sub from me. I also like TAOutdoors, My Self Reliance, MCQ, Scrambled O, most of the ones mentioned actually. I also like our very own @NWPrimate, I've been trying the bow drill a lot more since finding his videos.

    Joe robinet, far north bushcraft and survival, Doug outside, my self reliance, Doug outside, fowlers makery and mischief. All great channels. Looking forward to checking out NwPrimate. Also just started watching survival Lilly. She has a lot of good quick videos.

    KennethKramm, Reallybigmonkey1, and Simon, a bloke in the woods are some of my favorites that have not been mentioned. Love MCQ and Far north, both totally down to earth guys.

    I just found Corporal's Corner. There is no BS in his presentation, I have been binge watching his channel. Joe Robinet is another one I like. I guess his Canukiness resonates with me. I also like ReWildUniversity.

    IAwoodsman, Karamat Wilderness Ways, AncientPathways (Tony Nestor) and Townsend’s all rock and are at the top of my list.

    Hill People Gear’s Long House series. Some of the older NativeSurvival videos.

    The Prepared Wanderer. (Panzer on here)



    Unlike others, I find Alfie Asthetics shallow and useless. NOT recommended.

    I remember a thread on this since I've been here.

    I used to like JR's videos, but lately his new ones are like feature length movies. I like the quick: get in and do something videos. If I see a video titled "Tarp setup and lunch" and it's eighteen minutes long I click on it. If I'm six minutes in and the guy is still walking the trail, I check to see if I clicked on the right video and if I did, go on to another. I wish I could retract that I even clicked on it, lol.

    My recommended list has started giving me some new ones lately. Guys (or gals) that don't have a lot of watches. Some are entertaining, but dang if I can't remember them off the top of my head like the ones already mentioned. Basically, if it's got cooking, I watch it :) And I like gear reviews. The ones where the item is being used, not pushed around a table top.

    MCQ is one of the best just for his delivery.
    Joe Robinet for his humor.
    Dave Canterbury for his practical knowledge and father-like demeanor.
    just found Fowlers Makery, and I like it, but he's not the best public speaker. He has an intimate relationship with the woods though, and I like to watch him work.

    Far north bushcraft and survival, Lonnie is totally down to earth and practical. I would have to say he is my favorite youtuber to watch.
    Joe Robinet, seems like someone who would be a blast to hang out with.
    My self reliance, really enjoying the cabin build.
    ScrambledO, Odd cat but fun to watch.
    Reallybigmonkey1, kind of the mad scientist of bushcraft.He is my wife's favorite because he is"goofy".
    Kenneth Kramm, very old school and really like his historical presentations.
    Dave Canterbury, Very knowledgeable. I like how he presents things.
    IAwoodsman, Great topics and well presented.
    NWPrimate, some really interesting topics and well presented.
    I also really like Townsends for the recipes and food preservation techniques.
    I could go on but the list would take all day.
    I also really like this new guy on youtube, Biker Bushcraft. He does some pretty cool stuff;)

    I'll second corporal corner. I don't tend to note the channel when searching you tube. I've only seen one of his videos and I can't even remember the topic. But it's among the few that jumped to mind. I simply remember being very impressed with what I saw.

    GirlOutdoors is a great channel, too. It's run by a young English lass that can't be more than twenty but it's remarkable how many skills she's acquired for being so young. She's enthusiastic as well. I would also say I really like MegaWoodswalker's channel a lot. He's a good guy that's a regular over at Candlepower Forums. A lot of his videos are about flashlights but he's an avid hiker and trail runner. Great stuff if you enjoy a goofy sense of humor.

    I have that one bookmarked. I think it's probably the best, most common sense, practical presentation on a BOB I've ever seen.

    I forgot to mention NLGhostwolf. There is a decent amount I learned about snaring and hunting from that channel, another plus is the Newfies, just hearing that accent is enough to make me feel that I am with a good friend.

    I just ran into this guy last night.
    Nice length videos, very clear presentation, good photography.
    I found the food series excellent.


    And I also saw something in one of his videos that I have never seen before. An alcohol burner being used with a stove/platform he had constructed out of some wood stacked high enough to set his pot on. It wasn't a focal point of the vid, just something I noticed.


    He's worth a look.

    His machete review/tutorial/lets chop stuff up video is great. That's one long video I don't mind watching.
    The man owns a lot of machetes!

    All of David's videos are a bit long winded. But that's ok. He's got some great stuff. One of my favorites is the fireplace he makes from welding blankets in a tarp shelter.




    I would really like to try that one day.

    I think he makes another one out
    Of carbon fiber in his shop if I remember
    Correctly .
    Got me thinking about a foldable stainless stove using carbon felt for the hinges . Going to try that this week on a small
    Cook
    /mini tent stove with chimney . I don’t believe it’s really a stove without a chimney .
