I'm Mark Hatfield, relatively new to buckskinning when compared toothers. I spend time helping at the San Juan Bautista State Park doings. The Mission and Park are host to thousands of school kids annually. Several of us spend four days demonstrating the skills that our predecessor needed to flourish in the wilderness such as, setting beaver traps under water and why, loading and firing muzzle loading guns, and starting fire with flint and steel or a burning glass. In addition to this we the "Three Pines Group" do living history the first Saturday of every month at the San Juan Bautista State Historic Park. In the month of October we do The Boy Scout PAC Sky Rendezvous near Bolder Creek California where I teach primitive cookin' to the scouts. This is what I love to do "Cookin' over an open fire", whether using a dutch oven or more primitive methods such as a green stick grill or flat rock, it's all fun.
