Lost Hunter Solo Survival Challenge (NO Food, NO Water, NO Shelter) | Knife, Saw, 22 Long Rifle

I test my survival skills in the Canadian forest to survive with just the things I carry in my small backpack. I’ll survive with just a knife, saw, and my 22 long rifle. My Spices (Shop and Support):

I will make a primitive friction fire with a cedar spindle and a cedar base or hearth board. I’ll shoot a grouse, pluck and cook it over an open fire and build a shelter with materials I find in the woods. I’ll build a simple lean-to shelter with sticks, and make an epic fire to cook wild edibles I find in the forest.

I’m fortunate to find some fall wild foods including black walnuts, and apples, though they are a little far gone to be completely seasonal. So I cook them and dry them over the fire to make them edible. Thankfully I find a stream to purify water, but I also show you you can drink water from snow.

Primitive challenge with a few simple basic tools. I will show you how to start a fire using primitive techniques and cook a wild grouse over an open fire. Survival is all about making the best of a bad situation. Staying warm and dry is the key to staying alive. After survival is taken care of, it’s all about making your situation even better. Finding food, water, and making a shelter is a must to create ultimate survival comfort. I use a saw and basic tools to make a bushcrafter shelter in the Canadian forest using materials around us like tree branches and dried grass.

I attempt a friction fire using primitive technology – a cedar spindle, hearth board, and some birch bark and cedar shavings for a tinder bundle. Can I get a fire lite in tough conditions?

  1. Always bring a compass when you enter the unknown. In the event of getting lost, just head in the direction of the closest civilisation.

  2. แกะดินปืน.22ใส่จะง่ายกว่า

  3. โชคดีมีแอบเปิ้ลป่า

  4. Hunter-gatherer adults usually live until 60 years old. The average lifespan was so low because there was a lot of death during childbirth. Also, hunter-gatherers lived in a tribe and usually had all afternoon too hang out and relax because the hunting and gathering would be done in the morning.

  5. Ever hear of a compass. One goes with me everytime I go into the woods along with a well functioning firearm. Problem solved. This video is for the non intimidated.

  6. Hi my name is scott germaine I'm from Vermont I watch your channel all the time and Zach's channel I think you should do a gun rack in the cabin if haven't already thank you hope to see if not done yet thanks

  7. Another great SECRET WEAPON… A small device invented centuries ago and only weighs a few ounces….
    Stressing this to a Novice could very well save a life.

  8. Nests: The first several years the young spend 12 hours a day playing around, and sleeping the other 12 hours. The next several years, they learn nothing, useless as usual. They just want to sleep and play, not worried about finding food, always waiting for mother to take care of them. As they get older, mother finally gets tired and she refuses to feed the lazy bastards, and eventually she throws them out. Only then they find a partner and spend the rest of their lives stealing food, not work for it. Always stealing from others while crying that the world owes them. Now as far as squirrels, I know nothing about, I only know about the lazy bastards, the millennials.

  9. I like the video, What I don't like is how you rely so much on modern equipment like your knife, saw, gloves, Cantine, warm clothes, long rifle, etc. Try doing one of these videos with nothing on you except some pants.
