Aaron Luna

I've spent a decade building primitive bows and arrow , a majority of them made utilizing nothing but stone tools . That particular weapon has been perfected by me and I have successfully hunted the elusive whitetail deer with primitive sinew backed bows , rawhide bowstrings , hazel shafting fletched with turkey feathers and handmade flint-knapped points . In the aspects of primitive survival , I can answer just about any question regarding shelter construction in all environments , water purification utilizing primitive methods , fire making and maintaining with the bow drill , and trapping and tracking / observation . This also includes clothing making from buckskin and cordage making . Medicinal and edible plants are also engrained in my mind . I have spent years perfecting these unique and individualized skills . I have spent 5 months and 12 days in the New Hampshire bush with nothing but a heavy knife , a whetstone , and the clothes on my back .
