Fresh caught snowshoe hare. My favorite winter spot to visit. My primitive bush camp. A dusting of snow covers everything. These rocks will be useful in cooking today. My bedding is covered in snow that blew in. I use this to grind up corn to make flour. My bow drill kit to make fire. Need some fresh bedding. This dying spruce will do. Spruce provides enough insulation from the cold ground and wet snow. A dead goat from last meal. Dead grass makes an excellent top mat. I thought this tree would snap easier. These dead cedars will be good enough. I will need a lot of wood for this type of primitive cooking. My complete bow drill kit. A thin slab of rock to cook on. It is held up be a pyramid of tall rocks. Cedar bark shavings make great tinder. Cedar does not hold moisture well. It is very rewarding to make fire this way. The tinder bundle can be any combination of flammable material, I prefer birch bark, cedar bark, dried grass. It’s like magic when the bundle finally flames up. I am singing the hair off. I want to see if it’s possible. Early hunter gatherers cook like this much of the time so nothing is wasted. This does not taint the meat with gut contents. Nothing is cooked, except the hair, the full contents are still very much raw and intact. This smells like burned hair. A quick rinse in the creek. Now it is gutted and ready to be cooked. It takes a lot to heat up the rock enough to cook on, even though it is very thin. I am being careful not to overcook the hare and dry it out. The meat is okay, slight burned taste, a little dry, but for hare, not bad. A fox enjoying the goat remains.
