I Destroyed My Bushcraft Survival Safe haven – It Caught Fire
Luke here at the outdoor Boys YouTube channel I'm here in the woods of Alaska and I am going to be working on an awesome Bushcraft shelter we'll be cooking some amazing food bringing the family along and I'm also going to be answering some of you guys questions that I know I get a lot of come along for the ride guys it's gonna be a good.
Video well that's Bear poo right there they're starting to wake up so many rabbit poops down there well today is the day we're gonna put a roof on this shelter and seal it up and I must have a high degree of confidence in my ability because I forgot to bring.
The tarp and it's snowing today so yeah we're gonna do this or we're gonna have a really horrible night foreign to get a little hungry I think I might make some lunch I got some beautiful white bratwurst for.
Lunch I love these white brats foreign thank you foreign foreign well there we go that looks pretty tight it's not going to be waterproof but.
It'll keep a light drizzle off me and definitely keep the snow out well it's not perfect but I think we got it buttoned up pretty good all right oh I gotta tell you what it's nice up here so much of that fires heat is coming up on this platform toasty warm.
We got the shelter done and I still have a few hours before Sunset so I think I'm gonna go do a little hunting I'd love to shoot a grouse or a tarmigan but I think snowshoe hares are the most likely animal I am to run across there's just sign everywhere these are old Snowshoe hair poops you can see where the hairs have been chewing on these branches.
See that that's a p mark from a snowshoe hair there's more two marks some old Fox prints right there you see a pine squirrel's been eating pine cones right there well we got a good chance of seeing some Pine squirrels too but I've eaten them before they're not good.
So the key with hunting Snowshoe hairs is you just gotta go really slowly and just look and look and look you're looking for a White Rabbit in the middle of the snow main way you spot them is their little black nose or their black eyes uh check it out that looks like some coyote prints.
Looks like I'm not the only one who figured out there's rabbits here there's some tracks right there there's some tracks right there you know I get a lot of people asking me whether I carry a gun or any sort of protection when I'm out in the woods and the truth is I rarely do especially in the wintertime there's really only two.
Situations that get me nervous about animal encounters one is where you have limited visibility and you can walk up and surprise an animal and the other is in campgrounds animals are used to taking food from people are aggressive and cause real problems well right now all my food is sitting back at the shelter unprotected and the odds of.
Something getting into it are really low but if I was in a campground I would not do that you really don't have to worry too much about surprising anything in these conditions every time I take a step it makes a racket so loud every animal can hear it really hard to sneak up on anything in the wintertime oh.
I think it's time to make some dinner all right you got a little potato there this is a Tomahawk Steak and it is a gorgeous one questions um oh that is a good steak oh my goodness this is so much food but the good thing about winter camping The.
Food doesn't go bad I'll just uh put that in the snow and it'll be good for tomorrow a little salt and butter on a baked potato not bad at all it's been one heck of a meal all right for dessert I've got Ling hee movie flavored gummy snacks from Hawaii anything covered in linghi mui powder is.
Amazing if you've never had lingi mui powder it's uh really hard to describe but you should go to Hawaii and try it out that was an amazing meal but I've got a belly full of delicious food a warm fire and a cozy shelter so it's not a bad day the shelter on fire.
Go deal with that okay catching your shelter on fire is a major issue all of this wood right here is dry and warm and if a fire starts it spreads pretty quick now if you're awake and paying attention you can put it out pretty quick but if I was asleep up here when that happened I could be engulfed.
In flames before I realize what was going on and this stuff up here is really dangerous if this stuff catches on fire I am not going to be able to put it out in time when I'm sleeping in these shelters I'll often Let the Fire go out or I'll keep it really small and make sure it is far away from the walls and in a shelter like this where it's a.
Little bit hard to get in and out of uh I got to be extra careful so I'm probably not going to sleep with the fire on it's not that cold tonight I don't need it but in the meantime I'm just gonna make sure the fire is a little bit further away from the walls well guys it's getting dark so I'm gonna.
Go ahead and make sure I've got enough firewood for tonight and tomorrow morning nothing worse than getting up in the cold and then having to go out and gather firewood all right well I am exhausted but it's not quite my bedtime so I'm going to turn on an audiobook I'm.
Gonna shell some peanuts and I will see you guys in the morning oh it's so cozy in my sleeping bag but I have to use the bathroom so bad I think I better get out get the fire started oh that fireworms this place up so quickly it's nice all right I think it's time to get some.
Breakfast made foreign breakfast we got some smoked pork gel bacon homemade crumpets that had made a few days ago Fried Tomato egg not bad at all butter and crumpets is hard to be if you never had them they're kind of like.
Thick pancakes really similar recipe to pancakes oh that was good well I think it's time to start straightening up foreign but this is not the end of the video first I want to go get my son and my wife and bring him over and show him the shelter but also I need to take the.
Shelter down so that's something else I'm gonna do and I'm going to show you too the driving to the shelter does it look nice yeah we got a hot dog stick it looks cooler in person actually it does you like let me get the Caribou hides out and you guys can hang out on the bed.
While I get some lunch made all right should I get a fire start get some lunch made yeah all right let's do it here mama let me hand you the lunch there's some gummy snacks in there thank you oh yeah that's for you yeah you don't get to do this very often do you.
Oh this is fun to try it out you guys like eating gummy snacks in the fort here yeah we got some hot dog sticks here okay my first all right yeah you like your extra long hot dog stick I do this is very convenient yeah there you go now where you put your hot dog in the fire.
Tells a lot about you this is the foodie the starving camper that I have ADHD the four-year-old and then there's the sword fighter you like that is that a good lunch is the shelter warm sitting on it's soft yeah no this is pretty cozy I'm fine.
I like how the heat comes up underneath your bottom and warms your bottom up yeah it is nice you good you're full yeah all right I think it's time to tear the shelter down oh we gotta pull this all apart make sure there's no paracord no trash all right let's get to it all right well there we go it's all taken down and.
