""Since 1990, Mors Kochanski has been my greatest mentor in boreal survival skills and teaching methodology. He is a true living God of archival survival wisdom and someone who has walked the talk for decades. Many "survival instructors" owe large chunks of their curriculum to Mors; yet rarely is credit given. Long live Mors Kochanski; a mentor, a friend, a scholar, and a humble man who can best anyone's knife skills with a cheap, simple blade; proof positive that there is no alternative to survival competency other than decades of field experience."

I believe nowadays instructors are titled as " Survival Experts " much too easily. People write books, they do television specials, create trademarks for survival. I question them "Have you been there and done that ?" Canadian bushman Mr. Mors K. has and he truly has the survival mind set for whatever the environmental situation. He is beyond the title of "expert" he is a "Master teacher / instructor" having actual hands on application of wilderness survival skills beyond the knowledge of anyone I have ever met around the world. If I had to select one instructor to share an emergency survival situation with it would be MORS K.

"Mors Kochanski is a good old friend with a lot of ideas and the biggest book collection of bushcraft and survival I ever seen. - Mors showed me Tom Roycrafts snowshoe and how to make them. After that lesson we still teach and use them in the Swedish Armed Forces."

"Mors has demonstrated unusual skill in the world of wilderness living. I hear his name often in the gatherings of like-minded people. - I know Mors mostly from Rabbitstick where his fame is well established."

"When I first started training in survival and bush skills I read hundreds of survival stories and poured over the available survival skills books. There were only ever two that mattered: Larry Dean Olsen and Mors Kochanski's. Larry inspired me and taught me the hard core of survival and Mors taught me the beauty and art form of bush living and survival skills. I have spoken with Mors on the phone but have never met him (though I hope to one day). It's really simple - Mors is the original. He is the real deal. Survival should always be about getting back home. But wilderness living skills - well now - that is where the rest of us take over and revel in the natural world we love so much. Mors is the very best...of the rest...of us. Bushcraft is part of the Canadian identity. I am proud to be a Canadian in the world of survival and wilderness skills because of Mors Kochanski.” "
