Here's a fun video to watch. How to survive in the bush, filmed in 1954.

That was great. Angus made things look easy. I'd love to be that much at home in the bush.

I wish NFB done good stuff like they use to. I adore watching the old films.

Interesting film….although the NFB producer probably couldn’t have ‘survived’ without the Native guide….he wasn’t allowed to ‘chicken out’ though (you’ll have to see the film to get that reference LOL LOL)….and I hope the bear cub in the film wasn’t just left to his own resources in the bush either, after the mother bear was killed in a deadfall trap (it never did explain why this was done, especially when they left soon afterwards)….they wouldn’t allow a rabbit to be harmed after it was trapped….but then they had plenty of fish (well up until the bear came calling)….building the bark canoe and making paddles was a neat touch though. Check it out for yourself. Might not be quite up to SurvivorMan standards, but still quite entertaining.

Yes, seen it many times. It is interesting all you need to survive in the bush is an axe, and of course a "bushman".

Angus was the star of the film if you ask me.
