Can you post your locations in your video summary?
Unfortunately, I can't give away the majority of the location I go to since it would cause too many people to go to the same spots and could potentially destroy the ecosystem there. I find all of my spots by just exploring.
Can I come with you foraging/pay you to take me foraging?
Thanks for the interest but at this moment I don't have the time to take subscribers out.
Why is your knife bag limited stock?
The knife bags are handmade. To make sure people aren't paying and then waiting weeks or months, I'll only be putting a few out at a time so we can keep up and get your order out in time.
Why don't you sell your knife bag as a bundle with knives included?
Good chef knives are really expensive. On the cheap end, they're a couple hundred, on average, a grand and up.
Do I need a fishing license?
In the state of California you will need a fishing licenses if you want to fish or forage. You'll need to check your own state or country laws. You should always check what the rules & regulations are.
How did you learn to forage?
I learned most of it by reading books (check out the Gear I Use) as well as by watching videos of other foragers like Craig Evans.
How do you get your campsites?
I usually google for campsites in whichever area I'm planning to go forage/fish. You can reserve a spot in advanced or opt for the first come first serve. I also use Hipcamp if reservations are all taken and I want a guaranteed spot. If you're new to Hipcamp, feel free to use my code to get $10 credit or use the link: TAKUK
Why do I need to call the biotoxin line?
You should always call the biotoxin line before foraging and eating any shellfish due to Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning. The Annual Mussel Quarantine in California is in effect from May 1 through October 31. You can get updated info by calling (800) 553-4133.
