Primitive Technology new book

Im sure most of you are familiar with the guy from Primitive Technology on YouTube. I just saw that he wrote a new book which will be available in October. I wonder if it will cover the sling? I have his email and will ask him about it and post the answer back here. Hes a great guy and an awesome slinger. I told him about our group here but not sure if he joined.

Anyone else here a fan of his? Whos buying a book? Im picking up a couple!

never heard of the guy - but then I tend to watch mainly music videos on youtube. 

The thing about slings is that they are pretty useless for survivial, unless you already know what you are doing and have a lot of experience.

The cord is much better served with snares, traps and deadlines.

So interesting to see if he's included it.

Got any links to him slinging ?

Just found out he does have the sling in his book. If you preorder, let me know here on the forum. Would be a great stocking stuffer for the holidays!

  I've seen his vids before.  Pretty good stuff. For twenty bucks it had better be a really good book.
