    Hey all,

    Because cheat sheets are handy:
    For more info about them, I have another thread in the Minnesota forum which gives a bit more detail.
    And I did ask BCUSA if it was ok to post them. They said it was ok to do so in a thread.
    If anyone else has any handy resources like this, please add them!

    Here's another one.
    I didn't include fire pistons or lenses or ferro rods or magnesium or anything. Strictly stuff you can do with a knife/hatchet/axe:

    These are excellent resources!! Granted you can't always learn from pictures but it gives you ideas and refreshes things you've already learned.

    i keep a copy of these in my bushcraft journal for reference in the field-and that's my intention with next week's students. i'll show/teach the concepts, and toss some of these to them to help them remember after class is past.

    Those are good cheat sheets. I made some for local edible plants that come in handy sometimes. Thanks for sharing!

    Use at your own risk! This information is widely available on the internet, but that doesn't make it correct! Do not eat any wild plants that you are not sure are edible!

    Thanks for bumping this! I have been wanting a cheat sheet for knots and had not seen this original posting.

    I think I'll put a copy in the field note book like @NevadaBlue posted in another thread. I saw another member mentioned recipes so I'm working on that for the field note book also.

    I have been wanting to make a try stick. I just haven't found the right one to try it on yet.

    Here's one I found on BCUSA but forgot where. Downloaded it in Word. Knots on both sides and it can be made any size before printing. Both sides laminated together. Picture 33.jpg
