Lost WINTER Survival Challenge (NO Food, NO Water, NO Shelter!) | Knife, Saw, Axe, Wire, Rope

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, axe, rope, and some wire! Ocoopa Hand Warmer: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B08GQ34XWW?ref=myi_title_dp.

We will make a primitive friction fire with a cedar spindle and a cedar base or hearth board. I’ll try to shoot or snare grouse or snowshoe hare 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 spruce or balsam bows, and make an epic fire to cook wild edibles I find in the forest.

The winter offers sparse resources generally, as most things have either died off, or been burred by the snow. Deer have moved off to winter yarding areas, and bears are deep asleep in their dense. However, some small game still lurks around trying to stay away from frostbite and carry on with the rest of the living.

Thankfully there is plenty of snow to make water, but first a fire is needed to survive as eating snow cools the body and is difficult on the body’s system. Thankfully we have a small billy can or steel water pot for boiling water.

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?

Can you eat snow? Find out!

    Only this legend would manage to be stranded 100 miles out in the frozen tundra forest and still manage to do an unboxing of his sponsor ahaha too good x

    The cooked inner bark of the spruce tastes like cooked sawdust, but provides 500 cal/lb. That’s around 1100 kcal/kg for those of you that only know metric. Every little bit helps. And of course the pine needle tea will provide Vitamin C. And thanks for the bow rod demonstration. It reminded me to always carry a lighter.

    Best regards from the land of ice and snow.
    Great tip for your viewers and you guys, in a real surviving situation, if you really want to die or kill yourself don’t eat snow! It’s slow and painfull, knife in the temple should be faster way. If you don’t want to die and actually survive, again don’t eat snow. Your body does not like it when you insert something extremely cold inside you, lowers your body temp and eventually will cause hypothermia if you get unlucky with fire. High fever is treated with ice to lower your body temp if you are going to die cause of it. Also, your body has to warm that near freezing liquid to body temp witch cost you insane amount of calories, do not consume anything cold, you just make yourself weaker. If you are desperate,just small amount of snow inside your mouth and let it melt and warm up before you swallow it, and i mean like a few snowflakes at a time. Last week was around -40f or -40c, i am not making this sht up. You can drink another day if you waste your first day to make a shelter. Just don’t harm yourself this way. Most important thing is how to keep yourself warm and first thing is fire. If you manage to get that done you can stay awake couple days easily, working and keeping your fire and body temp up, you can boil water to keep your body going on. Eventually, like on 4th or 5th day is time to think something to eat, if you have not done this yet, you still have the energy to fishing/hunting if you know how. If you don’t know, stay out of the freezing cold wilderness, it is not a place to joke around.

    No space for sasquatch snuggles….. Best advice ever, Jeremy! I thank you for your wisdom and humor!!

  12. grotevijver on March 2, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    I love your videos man, but please don’t go on a rant about "negative comments…" it’s still your followers. As the Fishlocker keeps saying: "every comment and interaction IS an interaction, whether it’s positive or negative". Stay humble. And focus on the people that ARE making positive comments 🙂 Ignore the rest. It’s your channel, you do as you like, therefore you have all these people waiting for a video (including me), appreciating you. Your followers and commentors got you here. Filter out the negs ^^

    Place the heater near your heart on the solar plexus. This will warm the core and allow blood to circulate to the extremities. If you can find some rocks, heat them in the fire; they can do the same thing and produce a long lasting soothing heat when wrapped in heavy cloth.

  14. Jerem Tolentino on March 2, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    I wish I could like this twice

  15. Gary Minick on March 2, 2021 at 11:39 pm

  21. Dakota Byer on March 2, 2021 at 11:45 pm

  34. LittleR on March 3, 2021 at 12:00 am

    I think the difference between water from melted snow and water from a well is that wellwater is inherently filtered by the ground while snow water isn’t. Shouldn’t really matter especially in the short term

  35. Gringodingo7 on March 3, 2021 at 12:02 am

    Never knew that taking a dump will make you feel less lost

  36. Joosep Truusalu on March 3, 2021 at 12:03 am

    do next challenge no oxygen

  37. Mz Clementine on March 3, 2021 at 12:07 am

    in the end whenever your friends laying there and you ask him if he’s okay I saw the look of fear in his eyes. Poor thing he’s going to be freezing. And he knows it

  38. Calico InVenus on March 3, 2021 at 12:08 am

    It’s safe to drink snow water especially if you boil it

  39. Riley whittington on March 3, 2021 at 12:09 am

    I wonder if you could use fishing line in a pinch for a snare of it the rabbit would be smart enough to chew through it

  40. Unstable Expert on March 3, 2021 at 12:10 am

    Water without hydrogen, sounds like Pizza without cheese😂

  41. bali song on March 3, 2021 at 12:10 am

    If you’ll put the trifecta bivvies on different ridgelines, one above the other, and stake out the larger, outside bivvy into a triangle(as viewed from the end) you normally dont need the stuffings, as long as the ends of the bags are taped together and there’s no air-leaks. The trapped air is what does the insulating. The stuffing is just to help reduce the air loss if you get a hole in the bags. It’s also a bit of padding when it’d under you, but not much. That’s why you need a sleeping pad, or hip and shoulder depressions and a pile of debris or loose earth under you for comfort. The "breathable" mylar is unaffected by its getting wet. Just the two bags, without stuffing, between them, on a pile of debris, suffice for sleeping down to 0C if you’ve got longjohns, outside clothing, jacket, a beanie and gloves, bibs, and shoes or booties. For 2.5 lbs and 2 gallon sized bundle, not bad. I put zippers across the ends, so that I could wear the bivvies as ponchos and not have to lug around the extra weight of extra clothing., but it doesn’t get nearly as cold in OK as it does in Canada. We almost never go below 0F here and it’s rare to get below 20F. I think that you’ll love them in place of a simple groundsheet and tarp. I certainly do. You can fully unzip them and lay them out as tarps.

    Yo dudes, heavy kudos!! being stuck in a concrete jungle makes me miss the woods

  43. Adam Daley on March 3, 2021 at 12:10 am

    Seems like the other guy knew what he was doing and this YouTube guy was being controlling 🤷🏻‍♂️

    I am Indonesian, and yes, we are speaking "Indonesian" Language 😊

  45. Red Dragon on March 3, 2021 at 12:12 am

    This is a great idea; bring a friend along, have free help to build a shelter, then afterwards a source of food and a spare layer of clothing.

  46. Paul Fudge on March 3, 2021 at 12:12 am

    Hey, can you recommend a nice, high carbon bearded hatchet that wouldn’t cost me to much? Or a nice hatchet head that I could find a nice handle for?

  47. Dexter Fraser on March 3, 2021 at 12:15 am

    i am 38 and i wanted to do this since i was 10

  48. Robin Hansen on March 3, 2021 at 12:19 am
