Any other flintknappers in the area?!! I am into all sorts of primitive skills, but rock of all kinds is my major addiction! I carve too... Canoe and go as far into the woods as I can for as long as I can as well! Anyone in the area feel free to bug me, very interested in sharing information, learning or teaching!

I'm from the Rocky Mountain House area.

I found this site while researching primitive bow building.

Looks like lots of stuff here.

My hopes and dreams are to replicate a traditional hunting bow using materials and techniques authentic to the northern plains 1000 years ago.

I am not finding much in the way of hard archeological examples to help me out in my quest so I think I will start looking into ethnographic type stuff.

If anyone has any good information please let me know.

I'm in the Edmonton area. Into primitive hunting, camping, fishing and just about anything primitive. Love making my own primitive gear like my ancient Ancestors did.

No other Calgarians? Aw ... looks like I gotta head to Edmonton to meet other Paleos. Was recommended this site for info on bark tanning, but hey, I think I'm going to build myself a bow, too! Would love to learn to knap, but one thing at a time LOL. 

So ... any Edmontonians planning a gathering? Send me a PM.
