After doing the finishing touches at our bushcraft shelter comprised of the bed area, we spend a wintry first night at the bushcraft shelter in the woods with only an open fire for heat. I build a huge tripod capable of holding up a hovering fire grill which can be used for easy cooking. Buy “That Fishy Thing:”

Rabbit Pound by William Larkham Jr:
We prepare a wild stew of rabbit fresh caught in a snare, set minnow traps to catch bait for fishing, and show off our winter camping sleep systems of sleeping bags and air mats. We show you how to winter camp with just simple items.
In the morning, we make pancakes and bacon, and dine on coyote steaks from an earlier hunt.
We build a natural bush shelter using hand tools from materials we find in the forest around us. The majority of the primitive shelter is built with spruce trees which are not as heavy as hardwoods. We will use a bit of rope, a tarp, and axe, hand saws, and a lot of hard work, sweat, smarts, and ingenuity to build this fort in the woods.
Bushcraft Shelter Playlist:
A bushcraft shelter out of natural materials in the woods, doesn’t need to be very elaborate, but this one is pretty amazing. It only needs to protect from rain or snow, wind and trap some heat from a nearby fire. If you really enjoy these types of builds, let me know and we’ll do an over night trip and work on some more elaborate build projects.
We build a natural bush shelter from scratch using hand tools and the 20,000,000 trees around us. We mostly use overpopulated spruce trees that are too densely packed together for their own good (because this property has 20 million trees already). While Mr. Beast lives in a place that has no trees, Canadian’s don’t…we have a country rammed full of these beautiful creatures that need proper management to thrive. This is why careful selected trees for our fort which will help prevent forest fires in the long run. Canada has a lot of trees, come visit them and have a look for yourself!
Thinning the trees will help the forest grow by reducing the canopy and letting overcrowded trees grow even more. This is very healthy for the forest.
We chose the build site carefully on 200 acres of woods with a field nearby and instant access to water. We will be able to trap beaver and muskrat as well as snowshoe hare. There is a creek nearby, but it is only deep enough to hold small minnows. It will still form a solid base camp for nearby lakes and other opportunities.
