2019 Bois d’ Arc Primitive Skill Gathering & Knap In
This is a video for the 2019 Bois d’Arc Primitive Skill Gathering & Knap In, held annually at the Hulston Mill Historic Park, near Greenfield, MO. It is held the fourth weekend of September each year, in 2019 this being September 27-29.
I've been interested in primitive skills ever since I read Larry Dean Olsen's book, Outdoor Survival Skills, decades ago. The past 25 years, or so, I have been striving to learn the skills...flintkapping, hide working, friction fires, edible & medicinal plants, etc. Having gained some proficiency, I have been demonstrating and teaching at historical events and gatherings. It is a never ending journey.
