Survival In The Bush

This film was brought to my attention this morning and I thought it worth sharing:

These historical films from the Canadian National Film Board (NFB) are always a real kick to watch and I hope you enjoy the movie as much as I did.

Thanks for reading,

Fantastic! Thanks for the trip!

"It's amazing what you can do with an axe" is my favorite quote in the movie.

Wonder why they took the time to decorate the canoe though?

They killed a bear! They killed a bear with a cub! Ok, maybe there were enough bears around at the time, when they shot the film, but putting themselves in a position, where they needed to kill a bear with a cub, is just wrong. And the bear died by crushing.. that is just plain wrong. I know nature is harsh and so on, but there is no need to add to the pain and toil. they killed a bear in a painful way and the left the cub to die a slow death. I hope they used the remains of the bear, so it didn't die in vain.
