    I heard you make a presentation today about outdoor survival risks at the Washington Sportsman show. Thank you!
    At the show, I purchased the $35 emergency kit and I’ll take that on my hikes.

    • Peter

      Thanks for coming by our booth and listening to my presentation.

      Best regards – Peter

      Peter, heard your presentation in Bend Oregon at the Hunter Ed conference. It was outstanding! You recommended using REI matches. Over this past weekend I went to REI they no longer sell their brand of match. They sell another provider windproof matches. UCO brand matches! Have you tried them and are they any good? Thanks for your help. -Clyde

        G’day Clyde – as best I can tell them are identical. REI lost their right to be the exclusive seller of the matches and as a result I’m seeing the UCO matches quite commonly. So I’ve made the switch. They are also being sold in a rather nice hard plastic container.

        Beast regards – Peter

  2. Curtis Bagby

    I attended a class on Wilderness Survival at University of Scouting in Dallas Texas by Mel Tome and he used your videos in his class and gave us your website address.

    • Peter

      So Curtis – what did you think of my videos?


  3. Carlo Scalfi

    Hello from Italy!
    I used your DVD and yr. manual when I taught my NBEF students a basic Bowhunting Course. The material was ordered thru the official NBEF website.

  6. Jen

  7. Jen

    Correction I found you through a blog post from LPC Survival Ltd. that they posted the link for on facebook.

  8. Larry Noell

    I had the great fortune to hear and meet Peter at the Kansas Hunter Education Instructors Academy this past weekend. Thank you Peter for a great session. Your approach to mental conditioning and preparation is outstanding. I left with an appreciation that ‘preparing for an inconvenience is far preferable to facing a survival situation’. That will drive and focus what is important to me and how to prepare for those pesky ‘just gonna’ situations.

  9. Paul

    Heard about Mr. Kummerfeldt and this site from one of my hunter education instructors Mr. Martin. Mr Martin’s account of meeting and discussing survival skills with Mr K. was quite informative and I say pithy, informative and inspiring.

    I usually do not write comments on posts, but your post urged me to commend your writings. Thanks for writing this, I am going to definitely popular your site and come back as soon as in awhile. Content blogging.

  12. Jessica

    I attended the Wilderness Medical Society’s annual conference in Chattanooga, TN, and one of the seminars I attended was Mr. Kummerfeldt’s survival course. Wonderful stuff!

  13. Mickey

    I heard about you from another Search & Rescue friend in another part of our state, Oregon.
    I am in Eastern Oregon and she is more Central Oregon.

  14. Henry Meguess

    I watched your video on UTUBE best I have ever seen. Very informative looked up your site to visit your store an will be buying several items soon

    • Peter

      Thanks for the feedback. I try hard to present practical information that the average person could use in a real world survival situation.

      Best regards – Peter

  15. Darrell J Berno

    I have been to your seminars on a couple of times
    I teach Hunter Ed for Arizona Game and Fish an use your teachings in the survival classes
    Love what you do


    • Peter

      G;day Darrel – great to hear from you and glad to hear that you;re using what I taught. Holler any time I can help – Peter

  16. Ralph D. Totton

    Thank you so much for your work at the Nevada Dept. of Wildlife Outdoor Education Seminar on July 13, 2013. Your practical approach to outdoor survival has caused my teaching team and me to reconsider the content and technique of our outdoor survival instruction block. Thanks again for a very informative daytime one-hour station and a great evening presentation, Outdoor Survival Myths.

    • Peter

      Great to hear from you and glad to hear that my program was beneficial. Holler anytime you have a question or if I can help in any other way.

  17. William Riley

    Although I was USAF, I learned of you through my contact with Tony Nester and Reggie Bennett…There are a lot of people with Outdoor Survival Skills,but it is the teaching technique and personality of the specific Instructor that keep the interest of the student and encourage them to continue learning ,to enjoy the great Outdoors. Your instruction is important enough that Outdoor skills of Self -Rescue that you teach puts the lives of SAR Personnel at much less risk. I look forward to shopping your site and learning from you.

    • Peter

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts. There are a lot of people who are very good technically but are lousy teachers. There are a lot of people who are good teachers but are not good technically and then there are a few people who are good both technically and are good teachers. I work hard to fall into the latter group.

  18. Thomas

    Peter, I’m a USFS District Ranger and have benefitted from two of your one-day sessions in the past. The first in Meeker, sponsored by either Rio Blanco County SO or (what was then called) CDOW. That experience prompted me to ask you and your wife to put on a similar session in Glenwood Springs. Now I’m in NW WY and should see about getting you up this way. Thomas

    • Peter

      G’day Thomas – Sorry I haven’t responded to you comments sooner but I’ve been spending a lot of time in SOuth Africa leading photography tours. So when are you going to have me up to speak to your troops? Love to do it if you have an interest. Where are you based out of now?
