“William Myers is dedicated to the pursuit of providing the best in out door education and products for your outdoor adventures. William has devoted a large portion of his life to both modern and primitive skills. He takes his roll as a outdoor educator very seriously quoting safety with every lesson. William especially enjoys teaching youths the skills that he has developed over the years of hiking, trekking, camping, hunting and fishing. Mr. Myers specialty is plant lore but believes in being well rounded with his skills. Any chance that he gets he is in the wood working on his own skill in bush-craft and general woodsman-ship. William is a student of history especially the 18th century. When he is not in the woods or with his family he can be found in his favorite chair reading books from such authors as George w. Sears, Horace Sowers Kephar, Joseph Doddridge, and Mark Baker. William will forever be in the pursuit of regaining the tribal knowledge that was commonly handed down from member to member.
William is a happily married father of 7 (6 sons and 1 daughter). He is dedicated to their education both in the woods and in the classroom. William includes his family in all that he can from his outdoor classes to his YouTube videos. William firmly believes that the children of today are the woodsmen of tomorrow so a lot of his attention is focused on youths. Passing down the knowledge that William has gathered throughout his years will always be his life long goal……”
