Using a Map and Compass on a Hike – Map and Compass Skills – Video 4

Survival Skills
Join me for a practical demonstration of map and compass skills on a short hike. We’ll adjust our compass for declination, or the difference between Magnetic North and True North; orient our map to the terrain and determine our position through triangulation.

You may notice that this video was filmed on two separate days. The first time I had some technical difficulties and left some stuff out, so I re-shot some parts of the video.

Here are a couple of Amazon links to the some compasses to check out (links support this channel):
