Its a rare event when I find the need to delete or edit a post but in this event I do.
My original post on this subject was more a reaction to what I read on the below blog
Since reading this and the comments posted here I have done some research and read a few blogs etc - and my opinion has changed hence the edit to this article.
Thanks mostly to AMERICAN GROUCH and Wikipedia I see that this is actually old news - one year old no less and as such not necessarily so shocking.
I have no problem with the bushcraftUSA trademark but I am still to get my head around them trade marking the word bushcraft??
So in the interest of fairness I have removed the original post - people can visit
As these show both sides of the argument and make up their own minds.
Bushcraft should be all about learning to love and live with and within nature, learning and sharing skills that belong to us as a species. Bushcraft skills are our inheritance as much as reading and writing are.
As long as that remains true I'm a happy man!
