Overnight Winter Storm Bushcraft Camp

I head out into the woods during a winter storm and build a bushcraft shelter to sleep in. I camp out with my dog and cook some delicious food over the campfire during the snowstorm!

  • Your so lucky to live there mate, beautiful country. A great place for children to play in, and grow up also. My dream is to build a luxury log cabin out in the country side and say goodbye to toxic citys. Keep up the good work Mathew, I love the channel and the star of the show, the Monty 🌟

  • Winter hiking Matt - your videos is always worth looking at and pure pleasure! Here are my experiences after using a tarp for night shelter when the wind directions changes and cutting far too much firewood only to discover the smoke got into my eyes! We have a double sheet hot tent and a collapsible stove, a good advice from the Norwegian army as a survival thing; put spruce branches in between the two sheets vertical with the thick end of the branch downwards, this creates a distance between the two layers and still air in there, thus creating a sort of insulation, likewise do the same on the outside of the tent; spruce (or fir) branches vertical and tie the small ends together on the top, thus creating a protection of the tent in a storm. WE did this on one of our hiking tours, found shelter away from the wind and the tent opening away from the wind, erected the tent in minutes, again put small spruce branches on the “floor” (the tent have a plastic sheet bottom), then a canvas sheet over it and lightning the stove. A tarp put over the opening zipper protecting the opening from wind and snow. The outer branches catch the snow quickly and the whole thing became now a sort of warm igloo. During the late evening some sort of strange noise could be heard, not knowing what it was, the next morning we wnet up for a wee and discovered that it was a small deer calf the had found shelter in our camp! It ran away and we prepared some sort of padding in the pulk under the tarp. Not long after the little babi came back and although the tent zipper wh ere partly open, it did not came inside, but the small black nose found soon our food for it; bread ends, vegetable left over etc. At the third day it became clear that the little babi wanted to stay with us at a distance and have whatever food we could provide. I never forgot that episode. HM.

  • Hi Matthew, such a cool shelter, can't get over how much snow there was 😃 looked beautiful, pity it was so wet. Wish I lived somewhere as beautiful as Michigan, Manchester UK just ain't the same 😌. It's 11th May 2021 when I'm typing this (supposedly Spring ) yet it's grey & raining here ☹️ so this video is sooo gorgeous & cosy to watch. Thank you for making & sharing this, I could watch your videos all day - would probably if I didn't have to go to work 🤭😀 Much love to Monty, Rueger, Yourself & Funk 😘😘😘😘

U make everything so comfortable for Monty & he actually seems to show an appreciation some how. This shelter is epic. Couldn't u get a sm paint brush or a basting brush & when snow builds up, on ur beast of a camera, brush it off so theres less water when snow melts. Just trying to help ya. Would it help to put ur jacket in a trash bag & then u sleep on top of it between ur sleeping & ur sleeping mat? Great vid Matt.

I was drifting in and out of consciousness, bingeing your long ass videos. I felt like I was out camping with you, fantisising about getting outside myself again. Helped me get through it. I didn't have it bad luckily, but it still fucked me up for about a week. Cheers for the help. I hope you're doing good. Look after yourself pal. I hope one day I can be as zen as you.

    • If they are promoting a product or website they get auto flagged and deleted. If they are promoting their KGflow channel and it is obvious from the comment that they did not watch at all and make some generic comment, those usually get flagged also. If they genuinely want feedback or they at least watched some of the video and mention their channel, totally fine by me!
