Bushcraft My Shotguns & Hunting Gear

Bushcraft My Shotguns & Hunting Gear

About MCQ Bushcraft & Wilderness Life.
Hi my names Mike and I live in Northern Sweden, Welcome to my channel! My videos cover Bushcraft, wilderness survival and outdoor skills, bushcraft gear like axes, knives, saws, backpacks, clothing systems, shelters and cooking gear. Fire lighting with natural tinders, fishing and hunting, slingshot hunting, ice fishing, mushroom identification and plant identification, catching and cooking wild game, foraging and cooking wild plants and mushrooms, wilderness cooking, weaving and basket making.
My Wife Megan and I also travel throughout northern europe overlanding in our modified 4×4 exploring wilderness tracks and roads. We left the UK almost one year ago to travel and relocate to the North of Sweden where we now live in a remote town surrounded by wilderness. Outside of our working lives we spend out time exploring the wilderness, ice fishing and regular fishing in the summer over lakes and rivers, we regularly hunt with rifles and shotguns for various bird species and we enjoy hiking and camping with our bushcraft kit but also further afield with our modified 4×4 and roof top tent.
Thanks for reading and checking out the channel and feel free to have a look at the playlists and videos below.
Mike and Megan 😉

    have you ever reloaded a single round ball

  2. lil dubbz on December 30, 2019 at 5:34 am

    Mike would you ever go deer hunting and bushcraft camping

  3. JoeMason1981 on December 30, 2019 at 5:35 am

    You have great videos..very well done

  4. Grizzly Country on December 30, 2019 at 5:36 am

    *The slings like that are called drawloop shotgun sling or swiveless sling. You will find many companies selling them if you search on google. Hope that helps others.*

  5. Nick Hentschel on December 30, 2019 at 5:36 am

    An informative presentation on a very practical topic that gun culture often overlooks: break-open shotguns.

  6. warjoker18 on December 30, 2019 at 5:37 am

    You talk about pounds and quidts I believe whats the difference?

  7. Wayne Parker on December 30, 2019 at 5:37 am

    You have truly impressed me with your videos and knowledge of firearms, hunting and bushcraft in general.  I don’t think there are many people here in the US who would even know how to take off the stock to that shotgun (or any other side-by-side) and refinish as you described to repair damage.  Most would simply go to a gunsmith and pay a lot of money to have it done and probably not half as well as you did.  I’m also impressed with both the high production quality of your videos and your truly gifted didactic manner.  Take it from a former USMC officer, teaching these kinds of skills takes both mastery of the subject matter and an engaging manner to pass along the information so that it is actually absorbed by the student.  Please keep up the good work!!!  Regards from a California upland game hunter!!

  8. bop god on December 30, 2019 at 5:37 am

    Fausti Stefano sounds like a designer clothing brand lmao
    (Also, where did you buy that leather heat shield?)

  9. Kyriakos Mouzouris on December 30, 2019 at 5:39 am

    Hello Sir big fan of your videos !!!! My only question is why you hunt with ear protection, how can you hear the birds sound??

  10. Larry Banda on December 30, 2019 at 5:40 am

    Fantastic video and extremely educational in providing an overview of Side by Side and nomenclature, thanks Mike!!

  11. Gary Mitchell on December 30, 2019 at 5:40 am

    Thanks Mike- another great vid. Love the .410 !

  12. Jay Neutron on December 30, 2019 at 5:42 am

    That’s a great finish on that shotgun mate. I’ve just bought an old Baikal and want to do the same. Any tips on where to find a how to on the process you used?

  13. diamonddog257 on December 30, 2019 at 5:43 am

    1:30 …yes … the fausti sisters offer a cunning array of stunts with shotguns…….”’
    I think you were fine with that one…….

  14. Daniel Saad on December 30, 2019 at 5:43 am

    Why aren’t the barrels on top of each other ? And if they are can you shoot heavy shells with it

  15. Rob Farris on December 30, 2019 at 5:44 am

    I love the spanish doubles.

  16. Gus Stone on December 30, 2019 at 5:49 am

    That .410 is a beauty. How old do you think it is ?

  17. Jon Jon Mackey on December 30, 2019 at 5:50 am

    nice video

  18. Mac Sorfi on December 30, 2019 at 5:50 am

    thanks for showing your shotguns and your gear

  19. Shutter Speed on December 30, 2019 at 5:51 am

    I have a baikal izh 27em ou single trigger and if I want to select the second barrel all I have to do is push the trigger forward until there is a slight click and that will select the second barrel.

  20. J.T. Loyd on December 30, 2019 at 5:52 am

    410 lol

  21. Mitchell Gowing on December 30, 2019 at 5:53 am

    Thanks Mike for finally getting in depth about your shotguns man, good hunting

  22. varmartin of Kernow on December 30, 2019 at 5:56 am

    Thanks for more great content…awesome edit as usual.

  23. Espen Severinsen on December 30, 2019 at 5:56 am

    If you have not tried it, try firing your shotguns without the foregrip. Works on all shotguns I have tried it on.

  24. Dylan Slone on December 30, 2019 at 5:59 am

    Mike what idle gun would be an upgrade for a 10 year old that could shoot a 12 guage

  25. Harold Clark on December 30, 2019 at 6:02 am

    Very informative. I’ve been shooting for 45 years in Australia but I can always learn something from other shooters. Thank you .

  26. Gonçalo Marques on December 30, 2019 at 6:03 am

    Hello sir. I have a Winchester model 23XTR Pigeon grade side by side 12 gauge 3*/1* chokes. Do you think I can use it for rabbits with some wide pattern cartridges?

  27. The Duke on December 30, 2019 at 6:03 am

    What mfg is your .410 bore

  28. SmokyMountainOutdoorsman on December 30, 2019 at 6:06 am

    Hey Mike do you ever use any rifles? Love to see a rifle review.

  29. Nic on December 30, 2019 at 6:11 am

    I have an old German drilling that I just recently inherited. It hasn’t had maintenance in years but it’s fairly clean. I’m wondering if I should soak the stock in oil rather than continually applying layers. Advice would be much appreciated, thanks.

  30. squirms shed on December 30, 2019 at 6:13 am

    love your stuff by the way , I took on my fathers aya  h bought it second hand , fifty years ago ,now I use it , and it still shoots great,

  31. Alex Gorton on December 30, 2019 at 6:13 am

    I have never been hunting, but certainly after binge watching a ton of your videos I would like to learn more about it and give it a shot (I apologize for the pun). I have been camping since I was little, but the amazing amount of work you put into your videos makes me want to delve deeper into bushcraft. Thanks Mike for producing such fantastic and informative content!

  32. hostessman on December 30, 2019 at 6:13 am

    hey Mike, love your videos. I have a question about hunting. what do you do about fleas? I have never hunted but I want to get into it. Small furbearers here (Colorado USA) have fleas that carry the plague. would you not hunt these animals or how would you go about processing animals with fleas.

  33. william avery on December 30, 2019 at 6:14 am

    My father gave me exactly a similar 410 when I was 12. A fantastic gun,  and it made me place my shots. So when I got to use a larger  bore I was on the money, it should be a natural progression I believe. Mine was made by aubury lewes I believe. Full and full choke. Great videos, grab some young ones and take them with you and show them what real life can be.

  34. ChinchillaInTheHeat on December 30, 2019 at 6:14 am

    damn impossible to get a good side by side double in the states for under 2 grand.

  35. Hunter Cummings on December 30, 2019 at 6:15 am

    Here in the US I love my Remington 870 express super mag 3.5in chamber with 28in barrel. It’s perfect on upland and waterfowl. And I have a slug barrel for white tail deer

  36. Kevin Flood on December 30, 2019 at 6:17 am

    are gun owners in Britain allowed to reload their own ammo? as in buy powder and primers n what not?

  37. Michael Petridis on December 30, 2019 at 6:17 am

    Hi there Mike! One question for plz. What is the feel of a straight grip instead of a pistol one. I want to buy a side-by-side, and i can’t deside…

  38. James Gunter on December 30, 2019 at 6:21 am

    This is an old video, and I don’t know if anyone will see this comment, but was your .410 SxS a Turkish made Alesta? https://www.trimports.com/product/alesta-410-sxs-shotgun/

  39. Cap Strong on December 30, 2019 at 6:21 am

    Favourite powder for reloading?

  40. Dano DeMano on December 30, 2019 at 6:23 am

    Nice guns! I have a Remington 870 super mag in Real Tree Camo 12-ga. & a Taurus Judge pistol which shoots .410 shot shells and .45-cal. Long Colt. I love the both of them for hunting! You did an awesome job on that 12/4 stock too. I have a nice .177 Break Barrel Air Rifle that I hunt with also & it’s fun to use also. Thank You Sir.

  41. AnthonyArteaAmerican Artea on December 30, 2019 at 6:23 am

    Just went upland game hunting for the first time today,harder than it looks on t.v., flock of quail flew past not one down,then I almost stepped on a pheasant scared the crap out me and couldn’t get the safety off in time ,subscribed😃

  42. Hunter Cummings on December 30, 2019 at 6:23 am

    The make of your 410 is a El Faisan Spanish Rossi-Braztech

  43. chris bohn on December 30, 2019 at 6:25 am

    What’s your thoughts on 20 gauge?

  44. Zachary Adams on December 30, 2019 at 6:25 am

    how do you reconcile instinctive shooting with game ID and only taking safe ethical shots? not being judgey, I just want some advice about that.

  45. shadowvface on December 30, 2019 at 6:26 am

    Should I get a 26 or 28 in sxs? 🙁 hard decision

  46. -- on December 30, 2019 at 6:28 am

    My limited shooting experience with 12 bores was really fun but the 410…wow! I did reasonably well with the 12 had fun etc etc when I tried the 410 I literally couldn’t miss, made it too easy lol.

  47. Louis Bushcraft on December 30, 2019 at 6:29 am

    Nice video, do you use air rifle for hunting?

  48. mike slane on December 30, 2019 at 6:30 am

    does the safety not move left an right to select which barrel fires first

  49. JKHERPS _ on December 30, 2019 at 6:30 am

    love the vid

  50. metimoteo on December 30, 2019 at 6:31 am

    This is another really well made video that complements the many you have produced. I thoroughly enjoy the topics you cover and the manner in which you present them. In the two days since I subscribed to your channel, I’ve watched at least two dozen of your videos. And while I work my way through the ones you’ve already produced, I look forward to new content, too. Keep them coming!
