I'll be attending again this year with 3 wood canvas canoes, gear, and building materials displayed.

"The 8th Annual Puckerbrush Primitive Gathering will be held July 14-16 at the Pleasant River Fish & Game Conservation Association in Columbia, Maine. The focus of the event is primitive outdoor skills, traditional archery, bushcraft, survival, canoeing, and related handcrafts, such as bowmaking, blacksmithing, woodworking, firecraft, and more. Most of the presentations feature "hands on" workshops, with something for all ages and skill levels. We encourage presenters and vendors of relevant topics and wares to join us. Some may qualify for a weekend pass!"

This is a fun event for kids and adults. Kids/adults can learn to make a bow and arrow from natural materials, forge a tool with a real blacksmith, or learn to make fire with flint and steel.

This is always a great time. I got to go in 2015 when I was living in Maine, and I've always wanted to go again. 'Shcraft on!
