SHTF Survival – could you survive in the wilderness mountains – hiking tips and more!

- in Survival In Mountains

In this video, I take you on a journey on a novice survival hike in the rugged mountains of montana. If you were faced with a shtf scenario where you and your family had to flee to the wilderness for your safety, would you be able to survive? Here I show you that it’s not as easy as it looks.

With so much uncertainty in the world today, with economic collapse hanging over the heads of so many countries, with wars breaking out and constant change looming in front of us, it’s hard to imagine that we might actually have to one day run from the towns and cities into the wilderness. But that “could” happen. And if it does, you need to understand what you are getting in to, know what you need for survival, and be prepared to face the challenges that woods, forests and mountain areas throw at you.

It’s easy to take a hike in the flat lands, but climbing up the side of a mountain is quite different. In order to handle the rough terrain you have to be in good physical shape and condition. You also have to know the area and if there are things such as bear, wolves, mountain lions, etc present in those areas.

Let’s hope that none of us have to be forced into these situations. But it’s better to be prepared to handle it and have the stocks and supplies you need, in case you do find yourself in this situation.

  1. Sir, that tree you saw with the outgrowth "bulge" at 4:16 could be used as a partial "roof" for a small house or tent for your campsite or shelter…do you think?

  2. Although Scutter seems like a nice guy trying to give good advise, this video lacks substance.  There are numerous statements made which are just untrue, for example, easier walking downhill than uphill.  News flash: It is much more treacherous walking downhill. Having hiked thousands of miles in the Canadian Rockies, and Waterton, which adjoins Glacier, the only way to do it safely is with
    company, or a guide for the novice hiker.  Changes in weather is much more of a danger than wild animals.  I am also surprised by the replys below.  It appears that most of the people are unable to write, and lack the skills of proper use of the English language.  In Canada we don't need to take guns with us everywhere we go, especially into the mountains.  What the hell is wrong with you gun crazy people?

  3. I thought that the bell was to let Yogi and Booboo know that dinner was served……

    Was tha a female sascuash with a blue jaket infront of you?

  8. On the bright side it is now legal to carry in the parks. Cheers

  9. The Forest Service has issued a BEAR WARNING in the national forests for this summer. They're urging everyone to protect themselves by wearing bells and carrying pepper spray.

    Campers should be alert for signs of fresh bear activity, and they should be able to tell the difference between Black Bear dung and Grizzy Bear dung.

    Black Bear dung is rather small and round. Sometimes you can see fruit seeds and/or squirrel fur in it.

    Grizzly Bear dung has bells in it, and smells like pepper spray!

  10. I don't hike and don't live near any mountains. But some of the visitors to my Facebook page may find this info very helpful. Thank you!

  11. Glacier National Park is beautiful. Been there.

  12. That would be great to actually visit Glacial NP.

  13. Fuck yea this guy is a savage. May you be with god on a great journey back into the wild. were his greatest creations still dwell

    Good tips, incredible views & very beautiful scenery. Here's my two cents worth on what was covered. In a forest environment, bad whether is usually a much greater threat to life than wild animals.When climbing up a mountain, try walking slow enough to not overheat or loose your breath without stopping to rest. Learning to look ahead & read terrain for best travel routes is #uno.Traveling steep downslopes is more of a strain on body joints than traveling uphill. Zigzaging will help reduce strain

  15. You've probably been told this already, but it's now legal to carry a firearm in a National park. Thanks for the vid and I hope you enjoyed yourself sir.

    the right gear and knowledge is needed to bug out into the wilderness or you could find yourself dead in short order

  17. I love Kalispell, and the Glacier area!

  18. Thank you so much! i am your new student. I do have a van. and an apartment now.

    And if you go, talk the steps up to the top of Avalanche Creek. Beautiful.

    No kidding! Got to watch for surveillance cams. I was taking a nature walk in a newly renovated spring area locally. I looked up and saw the sign…SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS. WTF? What for? Takes the bloom off the rose, doesn't it?
