I'd like to make backup of some specific console logs.
How do I find the location of a specific Console log file on my Mac to copy as back up?

Console.app's logs are stored in the following locations:
/var/log /Library/Logs ~/Library/Logs
To back up all the logs, simply copy the contents of these three folders to another location.
To back up a single log, look in Console.app for the log that you want to back up, select it in the sidebar, then press ⌘R (or right-click and select Reveal in Finder). This file can then be copied to another location.
Actually it is simple.
While you are looking at magnitude of console logs pick the one you want.
While in the Console app window, click on any of logs that interest you (on the left side), then either right click and use "Reveal in Finder", or use shortcut cmd-r. – Buscar웃 5 hours ago
