What Knots does Ray Mears use to Pitch his Tarp?
We’re often asked by customers about the Tarp Taut Hitch and other quick-release knots that Ray Mears and the Woodlore team use when pitching our tarps/hootchies; hopefully this post will help.
The knots which Ray uses to pitch his tarp are demonstrated in the following video clip:
The pitching of tarps using these knots is taught on a number of our Bushcraft Courses, including:
- Introduction to Bushcraft
- Family Bushcraft
- Fundamental Bushcraft
- Junior Fundamental Bushcraft
- Camp Craft
