I have spent a good bit of time studying and practicing such skills. I have in no way mastered any of them nor do I consider myself to be exceptionally proficient at them. That said, I feel I do have a better chance of survival than most if a situation ever presented itself where such skills were necessary. Todays modern term of primitive living is just as you posted. Bushcraft skills are similar to primitive living, but used more modern tools that can be carried with you such as saws, axes, and fire starters. I much prefer and would be better able to survive with my pack full of such "conveniences".
