Nice Setter woods walker. Looks like mine. if your carrying any flashlight uses batteries a tuft of 0000 steel wool does the trick also. so does a magnesium kit with your first line utility blade is your sharp tool. An old Zippo lighter, home grown in the back country of northern PA, made famous in WWI as well. Bettern modern lighters in extreme cold. Little square of char cloth in your priming pan woks dandy. My prim archery and my black powder kit both hold the makins of short time fire in primitive way in at least four forms. Jute garden cord available in any good hardware store's garden section carried in a very tight small ball is both superior tinder and if you know a quick cable lash strong enough for a couple uses with a fire bow. All members of the birch family contain phenolic oils in the bark which ignite like kerosene soaked even when wet. Most bracket fungus growing on birch species will carry glowing coal for days and serve as handwarmers if properly bundled. a proper sized magnifying glass lens carried in your medical kit will start the coal in any of many tinder forms mentioned above. Cattail head 'fluff' will not burst into flame by itself, but coupled with most of the other tinders will double heat production, hence cutting flame time in half. Proper prep of your tinder nest is over half the process of a quick start. When the firebow or hand spindle is used, larger diameter works better in damp conditions like dusk or dawn. If it's downright WET, preserve your next days' start with the hoof fungus mentioned above. Preferred choices of spindles in order for me personally Mullien, dead sumac, sassafras, horseweed. Favorite hearthboards Black willow, eastern cottonwood, aspen, cedar. Favorite handhold, stone. Carried both Prim archery and Black powder. Stone drilled v-shaped hole one side for fire, opposite side used to properly dress handknapped gunne flints. have on occasion thrown stone at pesky bears. Once bear threw it back
Any time using friction methods devote about five seconds to just warming materials, then compose your self..and put the materials to work. Fire 17 seconds. Everytime. now you know most of what I know.
for PA. other climes...well it is all there also. Learn your environment first, then go hunt. In my experience all cordage materials are also tinder materials. One other tidbit..for whatever reason different days require different application of yer huffnpuff. Some days a steady blow, some days the huff&puff, best days simply hold your tinder bundle between your lightly cupped hands and let the breeze blow through it. Thiose days are my favorite.
