Many more skills are needed to be a complete woodsman, but the list above is the skills that seem to be lost more than any, at least as I see it, with the hunters I meet. This has less to do with a hunter's age, I think, and more to do with the times we live in. I was raised in an area that demanded you know how to do everything on that list. If you didn't you went hungry. Not everyone, I realize, is lucky enough to have a rough childhood.
