    Dauer: 34:06

    In this video (part one and two) I go into the wilderness of North Eastern North America with only a knife and live off the land for a week. I document many of the crucial steps and tips and tricks that I do to survive in the forest. Skills shown are shelter, primitive fire, bark containers, water purification, fishing, weaving natural rope, bark shelters, trapping, edible plants, primitive cooking, fish traps....and tons more.

    After a few decades of being obsessed with collecting survival and primitive skills techniques, I am putting out these videos to demonstrate the skills and excursions found at my school, Wild Survival (wildsurvivalskills.com). Videos are focused on primitive skills, rewilding, tracking and nature awareness, living off the land, off grid living, indigenous skills, shelter building, primitive fire, water purification, trapping, hunting, bow making, flint knapping, primitive pottery, basketry, edible and medicinal plant preparation and numerous indigenous skills.
    I began studying wilderness survival when I was 17 in order to have the ability to spend extensive periods of time in nature, seeking out empowerment without the need for external sources. I began studying in 1993 under Tom Brown Jr eventually teaching for Tracker Inc. I sought-out every old Native American teacher I could and eventually traveled the world living in very remote indigenous villages in the Amazon, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and Peru. My school teaches survival and primitive skills, nature awareness, how to live off the land, re-wilding and how to prepare for disasters. I strongly believe that experiencing survival living changes the way people approach their entire lives.

I know this is an old video, so a reply is unlikely, but wen building the shelter covered in leaves, are insects and bugs not an issue?

Just wanted to say - a really absorbing and potentially highly useful video. It's not very often that one sees a video that's so entertaining whilst factual, void of dramatics and potentially life-saving. Nice one!

The human population is depleting more & more resources to the point where we will have no land available for the animals or wildlife or food. We need to stop the human population growth in order to survive.

We all couldn’t do this even we tried our hardest. This guy could teach les Strauss or whenever his name is)! The tv Show (the Survivorman) how to Survive with much better techniques. Less Strauss is show he pretty much starves though the week of trying to survive. I can see that I don’t matter how bad This world gets. There’s going to be people that will survive through just about anything. Great show of Survival at it’s finest thank you 🙏

How the hell would this benefit you in your llife later on? I mean if your life goal is to live alone in the wilderness then there you go. But I don´t need to know how to make a fire because I live in a house with heatings and a stove. I would probably die along painful death in the wilderness but why would I.

That's about 1200 to 1500 calories of fish. If you can procure enough wild edibles you can make it about 2500 calories worth of food for the day + 90~100oz of water, and it'll be as if you never left home. If you can find some good edible wild fruit that would be a tremendous plus...
