Digging Stick (Part 4 of 4) Digging a Rain Catch

In a wilderness survival situation, primitive skills, bushcraft, and wilderness living skills can save your life. In this video series we focus on primitive technology and show you how to make a traditional digging stick. In part one we discuss its early roots and join up with archaeologist Andy Christenson to look at original examples. In part two we shape the digging stick out using stone tools, a knife and a hatchet, part three the stick is fire hardened, and part four we use the digging stick to collect and catch rain water.
