I guess a lot depends on location and skill level. It is well known that people in the 1700's would spend several months at a time in the wooded areas and they didn't have near the gear that is available to us now.

Daniel Boone was one of the early explores that would spend years in the forest exploring. He was once asked if he ever got lost and he said no, but he was confused for a couple of weeks a few times.

He was in northwestern Quebec. Not in the woods of Kentucky or something. Also, he had little gear because a bear destroyed most all of it. ALL of us would have a hell of a time surviving in that situation. Give the man his props.

That is why I said it depends a lot on location and skill level, It maybe very hard to survive in Northwestern Quebec, but in wooded areas of the lower USA in the early part of our history for many it was a way of life.
