Favorite YouTube content creator?

So I’m not a huge movie buff like everyone else in the world nor do I watch a lot of tv because of the poor quality now a days. Andy Griffith still reigns king in my opinion. But what is everyone’s favorite YouTube channel/vlogger? I am into woodworking and Andy Rawls and Third Coast Craftsman I watch religiously. But there are so many random ones I watch also like LakeForkGuy, Dale Brisby, Demolition Ranch, Last Line of Defense, Vigilance Elite, Talon Sei and the list of random channels go on. I wanna see everyone else’s favorites and check out the ones I haven’t watched yet!

Since we’re talking about our favorite YouTube channel that would have to be my own channel Bumble Bee Hikes (Spelled exactly like that or you will get videos of the transformers. Sorry I know shameless plug. It’s a somewhat newer hiking channel. Bumble Bee is my trail name).

Now that I have that out of the way lol.
Firearm related: Armed and Feminine, Colion Noir, and Iraqveteran8888

Hiking/backpacking: of course mine lol, Homemade Wanderlust, and Darwin onthetrail

Woodworking/turning: April Wilkerson, Carl Jacobson, and Nick Zammeti

Mostly guns & gear and some other random something I’m interrelated in. I like Hickock, Vigilance Elite (when my son goes to bed), Sootch, WPS, Colion Noir, and MAC.

I have to go with Shaun Ryne and Vigilance Elite. Very knowledgeable and straight to the point.

I go down a lot of Youtube rabbit holes in the wee hours and can end up in some pretty strange places.

I do particularly like Hicock45 and Colion Noir in the firearms realm. Outside that I like Lehto’s Law, The History Guy, Crash Course, and sometimes just dialing up a bunch of music I like and playing them all.

I particularly like Active Self Protection , Warrior Poet Society, Mr. Guns and Gear and many others on the gun front. Mike Huckabee, Candace Owen and Ben Shapiro for commentary and good fun. Purely entertainment I like to watch all sorts of Fails on u-tube.

“Active Self Protection” on YouTube. Daily real life video scenarios and expert commentary.

@Joseph_1970 vigilance elite is one of my favorite channels for sure. The dude is no frills and just straight to the point. He cracks me up. So everyone is into “force patina” nowadays and trying to make it look weathered and his video on how to paint a rifle, at the end he is like people ask how you get the weathered look on your rifle…you take your rifle through my class lol.

@Lacy I’m big into woodworking myself and I enjoy watching April Wilkerson. In my opinion Andy Rawls is the absolute best vlogger when it comes to woodworking/furniture making and I suggest checking him out. Another one I mentioned is Third Coast Craftsman and he is just as talented at his craft as well as the videography. Those two are absolutely amazing at what they do and I watch them religiously. I’m also going to check out your channel. I am into bass fishing pretty hardcore also and my friends have a channel and I’m thinking about starting my own channel. I might have to ask for some pointers from you on how to get things started!

@David323 Warrior Poet Society is a really cool channel for sure. He is very knowledgeable when it comes to firearm drills and just keeping it simple and basic when it comes to self defense shooting. I watch his channel a lot as well as Garand Thumb when I want to watch some simple and effective shooting drills.

@bmurphy315 the best advice I have for starting a channel is if you want to start one is to start it. I’m still learning myself. Something I hear from others is they keep learning all of the time what to do to make their channel better. Taking that first step is the hardest.

@Lacy I’ve come so close but all the successful vloggers always say consistency is key and you always need to be pumping out content. I don’t think i am that cool enough to be posting regularly😂

Also on YouTube search for…

  • “Brandon Herrera” (aka The AK Guy Inc). Both informative and comical content.
  • “Binkov’s Battlegrounds” comparing scenarios where countries battle it based upon past and present capabilities.
  • “704 Tactical” with guns, knives, and gear.
  • “Black Rifle Coffee Company” a MUST subscribe.
  • “Honest Outlaw” guns and gear reviews.
  • “Jerry Miculek - Pro Shooter” everything firearm related.
  • “Legally Armed America” anything gun related, This is a FOX TV show that airs in both TX and LA.
  • “Liberty Doll” liberty minded news and discussion. (she has a great sense of humor as well).
  • “MBest11x” Mat Best at his best. He once titled this show as “Better Than Unicorn Porn”.
  • “The Daily Shooter” with William McNeill. Guns, reviews, politics, and general information.

I subscribe to all of these and contribute as a patron to most.

@TexasEskimo I love the entire BRCC crew. They are absolutely hilarious. Jerry Miculek is one guy you wouldn’t want to mess with no matter how old he gets either😂. I will definitely check out the other channels you mentioned.

“Corridor” is a great example of how realistic special effect videos have become.
An episode example…


Perhaps we better start treating robots a little more humanly(?).

Another couple of channels I recently have gotten into are Best Damn EDC and Jeremy Siers. Jeremy Siers has the ultimate cigar room/man cave. I’m definitely jealous of it

Amen, brother. I am a researcher by nature, so I spent a LOT of time watching online videos about handguns. Hickok45 seemed both knowledgeable and honest in his evaluations. At my age, maybe a brother-in-law is a better choice, but I agree he’d be a good family resource.

Just a few of my most watched…for 2A news & current events, my go-to’s are Townhall Media, Guns & Gadgets, Colion Noir, Liberty Doll, Kotaboy32, sometimes Gun Guy TV; world & domestic news, also Liberty Doll, Glen Beck & Blaze TV, Independent Institute, odds & ends others. I like the History channel site, God, Family & Guns, Hickock’s always entertaining, I listen to music, and when I need to hear a dose of common sense I find a Paul Harvey piece. Active Self Protection is most always interesting with their internationally sourced videos where good guy meets bad guy. Have found some of yours I’ll check out, so thanks…
