What Is #AskPaulKirtley?
#AskPaulKirtley is my Q&A video and podcast series that aims to answer your questions about bushcraft, survival skills and outdoor life.
The idea here is partly to take the strain off my email inbox and get answers out to people in a more timely fashion.
Rather than send an answer to just that one person, I’d like others to benefit from the answers too. So, just in the same way I’d previously write an email answer, here I’m going to speak the answer (which is much quicker than me typing out an answer, so I’ll get more questions answered as well as benefiting more people).

Learn from his experience!
Save yourself the trouble of learning many outdoor/bushcraft skills the hard way—meaning by getting it wrong and suffering. Paul’s got decades worth of knowledge and experience that helps you make proper decisions so that when you decide to try something for the first time you’re aware of WHY it is done a certain way, and that puts you closer to success and to an enjoyable time in the natural world.
This is one of the most informative shows out there when it comes to dispensing knowledge about woodcraft, camping, and bushcraft. Please keep it up Paul! Thanks a lot.
Great information and Q&A format
Not only does Paul share a great deal of outdoor information, but he does it in a Q&A format, which enables the listener to send in questions. This keeps the information topical, but also varied. Thanks, Paul!
