What is bushcraft? Definition is - "skill in anything pertaining to bush country."
This is a term that describes specific skills that came about from wilderness living in the Boreal Forests of Canada. And other northern wilderness throughout the world.
The North American Fur Trade was a booming economy and brought many to the north lands. Bush skills were needed to work and live in these extreme conditions.
