    Thanks for the informative videos…learned several things from this. I'm from Appalachian region. Learning new things r so kool to me & Ur very good at showing how to do survival skills hands on from start to finish. Just a note…take Ur cup to process water n to catch those with & not use tongs. Spear them with the sick U used to make the tongs & roasting will b easier also. Again- great videos! Keep on making these excellent survival vids.

    Thank you please keep the Texas region bushcraft & wild edible cooking videos coming. You are doing a great job. Much appreciation.

    Very interesting James! How long do they stay in season? I was wondering if you could roast the seeds? Make them easier to eat possibly? Want to try these… they look tasty! So glad you're showing desert bushcraft. Would like to see yucca or agave in an upcoming video. Many uses for these. Good job my friend!
