Survival Overnight & Survival Kit Test: Eating Cat Fish & Crickets + Fire, Shelter, Wild Edibles

In this video I am spending an overnight in the New Hampshire woods with just my own personal survival kit, the one that goes with me when I go hiking, backpacking, or any sort of adventure out in the woods. It worked well, and while I’ll make a few changes to it, I was quite happy with how it worked for me. If you’d like to see the review of the kit, here’s the link:

Great video Tim! Awesome use of sooo many skills. Foraging, fire, shelter. Any/best knots you can recommend learning? Esp valuable to have knowledge AND gear. Other than the boughs, what did you use to keep warm at night? Fire and the shelter alone?
Loved this video

in an overnight situation of any sort… dear god man you don't need to eat bugs…just leave them alone…humans were meant to go days without food…that truth is baked into our species… water shelter warmth is all you need for days

Cool video! It’s awesome to see you get out and test your gear and skills! On the food note I like to keep a couple packs of tuna that come in the pouches. They fit great in those kit packs and it’s doesn’t take up much room.

The best real-life scenario video I've seen in a long time. First priority, as you said, is shelter and heat management for your body. No Naked & Afraid BS. Having something setup as a base camp goes a long way towards confidence and anxiety. A quick rest and you can continue fortifying your shelter and collecting firewood/food. *adds marking tape to kits. Fishing kit a must here in MI where fish are relatively easy to catch. Ditch the Sawyer for a BeFree 0.6L that will still fit nicely in your kit. The only thing that I see is that if you can have that size kit you can have a "Get home bag" with more "snacks" and a better shelter. IMO the only time you'd be faced with that situation is getting home from a breakdown in the middle of nowhere (get home bag) or an actual situation where you got lost on a hike/backpacking trip where you would have your contents of your hiking pack or backpack…more gear than you had. IMO you would either have nothing or a better suited kit with you in this situation. Regardless I enjoyed the video and trust your content completely.
