The bush tucker man Les Hiddens.

Wanna know how to survive in the outback? Listen and enjoy what this man has to say.

"Bush Tucker"? Does that mean food in the wild?

Nice vids BTW. I guess every you can't really be a good survivalist unless your name is Les.

Yep it means food from the bush.

I'd love to take a trip across Arnhem land with Les, would learn so much.

Glad you enjoyed the vid.

If you get the trip arranged, try to reserve a seat for me. Seems like a fantastic adventure. That guy has a great job.

These are great survival videos! Some of the best I've seen, hands

I'm American but many of the same things apply here as
they do down under, like using the fish poison. Here in the US you
can use Horsechestnut or Mullein seed heads to stupify fish and
bring them to the surface. His freshwater prawn are bigger than
our native crayfish but you can catch and eat them the same way.
Digging for water is a superb method of getting safe water anywhere
you are - just learn the water-loving plants of your region.

Wherever you live watch these! Good stuff m8!

As you say many of the survival techniques he uses can be used all over the world so it's quite handy to know.

Karl: Definitely will keep a seat open mate!

Ahhh, good ol' Les Hiddins!
I've got most of his books, and both series of his show "Bush Tucker Man".
It's a definite must for anyone considering camping out 'in the wild' in Australia, however unfortunately most of the stuff he talks about is only specific to Australian native flora and fauna.
Unless they have Acacia trees in America, and widgetty grubs, it just becomes more of a good tv show than actual survivalist information.

As for Arnhem land, anyone wanting to trek through there, needs to apply for a permit through the Northern Land Council, as most of Arnhem land is actually Aboriginal territory, and they have legal precedent to shoot you for tresspassing.

Agreed that surviving in the Australian bush is a lot different to anywhere else but there a quite a few things that can be used where ever you are, like methods of finding water etc.
