Bushcraft Tenting with Coyotes & Hunting My Dinner
Bushcraft Tenting with Coyotes & Hunting My Dinner
Luke here with the outdoor Boys YouTube channel and it's fall here in Alaska I'm camping in Bushcraft survival shelters hunting Grouse and hairs cooking up good food and having a great time this is a place where I'd expect to see a lot of Snowshoe hair or even Spruce grous and frankly either one of.
Those sound pretty good for dinner tonight there you go those are little rabbit poops this is a great time of year to hunt Snowshoe hairs cuz they turn white in the wintertime and it's uh right the beginning of winter but we don't have snow on the ground here yet so it makes it really easy to see a white rabbit in all this brown just got.
To spend a lot of time looking an invasive Beetle called the Japanese Spruce bark Beetle has wiped out more than 90% of the spruce trees in this Forest large patches of forest in Alaska have just been completely wiped out by that Beetle I can see a spruce gr sitting on.
A tree branch up ahead I definitely got him so well camped camouflaged oh there he is look at that so this is the Spruce grous and they are delicious like a wild chicken but you can see how camouflage they are when they are up on the ground they are really hard to see see there's.
A little marking on their eye a little red got like a little red eyebrow the grows have feathers on their feet to keep their legs warm in the winter time but they like to sit up in these spruce trees about 68 ft off the ground and you'll see them just like a ball right there but you have to just look and look and look this time of year there's.
Rarely just one of them I have to look around really carefully and see if I can't spot more well I've got myself dinner and this trip is off to a great start at it is check it out those are moose bones right there.
That looks like a big wolf dookie see all the hair in it oh there's more wolf poop wolves probably Patrol this Trail looking for food sure's a lot of poo on it oh this looks like a decent spot to make Camp carried this big old heavy tripod all the way here and I forgot the.
Adapter so can't use it I have forgotten so much stuff I feel so half coocked today I forgot to bring paracord and I forgot to bring any utensils or plates or cups or anything like that so uh just going to challenge myself it's all part of the fun before I get started on my shelter I've got to do some prep for dinner I.
Brought some bread flour and yeast going to make some bread but I got to let it ferment for a little bit so I'm going to start making up the dough right now all right let that sit I think I better start cutting myself some trees I'm going to need a lot of poles yeah look at all the sap oozing.
Out of this tree it's from the spruce bark beetles they drill tons of holes in the bark and the tree trees just bleed to death as far as the eye can see the trees are just wiped out I can't see a half a dozen live trees in this entire Forest I bought this Hatchet last spring on my trip to Japan no idea what it's called but this thing is awesome for.
Taking tree limbs off it's this is the most timeconsuming part of the whole process but if you use thicker logs it goes much quicker but if you use thinner logs they Flex a little bit and.
It's easier on your back all right there we go all right I got my bed made better get a fire going I'm getting hungry there you go there's just a cotton ball with some Vaseline on it the Vaseline makes it burn longer and hotter and us cotton instead of Dyer lint just.
Burns a little better there you go beetle kill Spruce just goes up like gasoline luckily it rained this morning so everything's pretty wet you wouldn't want to build a big fire like this otherwise they're kind of like let the fire spread a little bit and consume up all the dry grass and sticks then you'll.
Have a nice bare spot that's safe to build a fire you just got to watch it like a hawk right now all righty I'm going to get away from my campsite and go clean this bird here we go a couple pieces of grous breast meat I was planning on plucking the whole.
Bird and cooking it over the fire with the skin on but uh I had hit him a little bit low with the 22 and it made a bit of a mess so I'll tell you what if you're looking for the ultimate survival Foods flour beans rice those are hard to beat I mean this is like two 3 days worth of food right.
Here in this bag it's compact it's cheap it's non- perishable tastes delicious got to love it just let that simmer for a nice long time well the beans going to take a little while to cook so I'm pulling out some slices of pilot bread some cheese and salami I'm making myself a little snack if you don't know what pilot bread.
Is it's a shelf stable cracker it's really thick and hard I may have raided the kids Halloween candy a little bit last night see I got the bread dough here let's give it a smell oh yeah it's fermenting fermenting slowly because of the cold put the dough up here here let the heat of the campfire warm it up a.
Little bit that'll speed up the fermenting forgot all my utensils so I made a quicky spoon oh that's looking good let's just s it right there to warm all right I use my griddle as a plate we.
Got my spoon we got some bread oh that smells delicious may not look fancy but I'm excited to eat it wild birds like grow are so incredibly lean that if you cook them like chicken you'll completely ruin them they get very dry you got to cook them like steak you want a little bit pink in.
The middle got a little hot sauce here going to put on my Grouse a little bit of my rice and beans that was delicious it's amazing how good those beans taste just onions garlic salt and butter that's all I added so good I am very full I just fin finished dinner and there's a few.
Snowflakes coming down I think I better get my shelter finished and get in bed well I think I got the shelter up just in time it's starting to rain here we go these pine trunks are always a little bit Pokey and I'm always afraid they're going to pop my air mattress so I laid This Grass down to kind of give me some.
Extra insulation and some protection this is my pillow it's a waterproof bag and it's got this fuzzy lining on it you just take your jacket and shove it in there well it is late and I am tired I'm going to go to bed I will see you guys in the morning hey guys it's about 2:30 in the.
Morning and there is a large pack of coyotes out out around my Camp I can hear him laughing and barking off to the left and then over to the right all right I'm going to try to get some sleep we see if they come in Camp and mess with anything all right good night well good morning I didn't sleep very.
Well last night I kept getting woken up by this a massive pack of coyotes they were running in the woods around the tent I first heard them over here on the left and it was so many dogs it sounded like a dog mushing kennel they were doing their laughing and their whooping and their barking around 2:00 a.m. they were off here to the left and then they.
Worked their way through the woods in front of the tent and then they got all the way out towards the car is and then sometime around 4 4: or 5 a.m. they came back this way and this time I could hear them behind the tent but but I kept the fire going all night and as far as I know they never came into Camp they never bothered anything but keeping the.
Fire going all night burned up my entire pile of wood so uh I need to cut some more wood cutting firewoods a great way to get the blood pump in in the morning I think it's time to make some breakfast there we go fried spam a little pad of butter here we're going.
To just melt all over it just smearing some melted butter all over my bread got a little bit of honey here fried bread honey butter and Spam The Breakfast of Champions right there here that pack of coyotes started howling over there again that is a fabulous sweet and savory flavor got the grease and the.
Honey oh fried spam is so good that was so delicious well now that I got a little food in me I think it's time to clean up the campsite and go do a little more hunting you know this really was a nice bed and I got to tell you the older I get the more I care about having good back support you know one thing I worried.
About is whether or not a spark could catch this dry grass on fire you don't want to wake up in the middle of the night engulfed in flames and melting sleeping bags but I'm a little skeptical about whether that's really an issue so we're going to test it out that's a lot more than a little spark so.
If those coals don't light it on fire I think we're okay I think you need the combination of Sparks and wind for that to light on fire certainly isn't going up like a blazing Inferno it's been a fun little campsite but I think it's time to put the fire out and go.
Hunting the things I'm hunting like rabbits grous and Tagan they all live off of these Willows see these things and you tend to find a lot of these Willow patches on the edges of trails or roads so you just walk down these Trails slowly and look spend lots of time looking well I've covered more than a few miles and haven't seen anything but.
