Introduction to the Survival Guide

From the beginning of time, Mans survival relied on his own knowledge and skills passed down from one generation to the next of from a simple survival guide like this. Whether it is constructing a shelter, gathering food, or preparing for war, man has continually progressed with technology in every way possible. We now live in luxurious homes filled with flat screen TVs, iPods, and other gadgets that we have become spoiled to. We have supermarkets and restaurants at every corner; making it convenient to grab a bite of food. Today, many of our wars are fought with radars from miles away with equipment you thought only existed in Star Wars.
Have you ever stopped to think what would happen tomorrow if all of that was gone?

Would you be able to survive?

Would you know what to do?

Would you know what to be aware of and what to look out for?

Could you start a fire, make a shelter, and find or kill food?

Are you prepared for the unexpected?
The sad truth is that many people are not.

The great news is I am going to teach you everything you need to know and do in order to survive the wild outdoors. Another wonderful benefit to this vital report is the skills taught can be used in many other ways in the event of natural disasters, a pandemic, riots, and even the “Zombie Apocalypse”!
I can’t stress enough how important it is to know how to survive on your own. As I said before, our society has become so dependent on technology that many of us couldn’t find north if someone had a gun to our head. Many would say, “I can find it with my Tom-Tom!” Good luck when radars and satellites are down or you’re out of juice with that thing in the middle of nowhere!
I’m going to take you to bare basics and show you how to survive and protect you and your family. I will give you the knowledge on how to sharpen your instinct and how to make fast, smart decisions in hectic times. Let’s face it; these are things we don’t normally think about or talk about, which is why you and your family need to be aware! Being prepared for the “worst case scenario” is the least we can all do to try and survive whatever element life throws at us.

As I have always said, no one plans on getting lost in the woods while taking an enjoyable hike! No one plans on taking a 10 ft plunge off a boulder, breaking their leg in the wilderness! And no one plans on spending the night in the woods without shelter or food. What would you do?
Well grab some paper and a pen and start taking notes so you can lay out a survival plan to help you and your family through all the “worst case scenarios”! Let’s get started!

Basic Wilderness Survival Tips

With the popularity of camping, hiking, and trailing at an all-time high, there comes a great demand to known even the most basic of survival skills before heading out on your next outdoor trip. Although most tourist destinations that include campsites and hiking trails are marked to ensure that you stay on the right trail, there are instances where you can stray from the marked trail and become lost in the wilderness. However, knowing these basic wilderness survival tips can play a big role in whether or not you can survive in the outdoors until you are found or have found your way back.

The first thing you want to do before even leaving for your outdoor trip is to let your friends and family know where you are going and when they should expect you back by. This can help out greatly if you are stranded out in the middle of nowhere and of course your rescue. Authorities can then be notified that you are missing and they will then scour the area where your last known whereabouts are and find you. This can also help in the amount of time you spend in the wilderness before your rescue. So make sure that if you are going on an outdoor trip that you let someone know where you are going and when you expect to be back.

Another basic wilderness survival tip is to of course find shelter if you have found yourself lost in the woods. Make sure that you choose a shelter that will protect you from weather and other animals. Keep in mind that the temperature can be dramatically changed between night and day, so make sure that you are choosing a shelter that can keep your body temperature balanced and that you don’t get too cold. You want to make sure that you have a type of roof or covering so that if it rains you don’t get wet. Mixing wet clothes and cold temperatures only leads to worse life threatening problems. Make sure that you get familiar with the location of your campsite so that when you venture off to find food and water you don’t become more lost and can’t find your campsite. This is a very important tip that anyone that plans to survive in the outdoors should know.

The next important tip to surviving the wilderness after finding your campsite is to get a fire going. A fire is very important to have when you are lost outdoors. A fire can help you in many different ways such as helping to keep your warm at night, keeps animals from approaching your campsite, and can also act as an oven to cook food from. A fire is also very important to have because the smoke from the fire alarms rescuers and helps them to pinpoint exactly where your campsite is. You want to make sure that your fire is constantly burning and finding wood to keep it going is another great tip when it comes to surviving in the wilderness.

After you have found a campsite and created a fire for your campsite, your next step is to find food and water. It is always wise to carry a backpack whenever you go on an outdoor trip and should have basic survival gear, some of which should be water, canned goods, a metal bowl, utensils, and of course a can opener. However, after you have run out of your materials in your survival backpack you then need to find a clean source of water, such as a running stream, and either hunt land animals or find a good fishing spot to fish from.

Keeping yourself hydrated is very important as well as eating food to give you energy until your rescue.

One of the most important tips you need to make sure that you do whenever you get lost in the wilderness is to remain calm at all times. For many people they become angered or scared when they realize they are lost, however you need to remain calm because you need all of the knowledge and energy you have to put forth towards surviving the outdoors until you are either found or have found your way back.

Although all of the tips are very basic survival tips, they are very important when it comes to actually surviving in the outdoors for days on end. So make sure the next time you decide to go on an outdoor trip that you keep these simple tips in mind and use them if you happen to get lost in the outdoors.

What You Need To Know When Surviving the Wilderness

You can never be too prepared when it comes to taking a trip or adventure into the woods or mountains. It is very important that have you plan on going on an outdoor adventure that you keep some important tips in mind at all times. Here are a few things that every person needs to know to ensure that if they get lost in the woods they have the survival tips they need to help them survive in the outdoors.

You need to make sure that you know where and how to create yourself a shelter in the woods or mountains. A lot of the times many people think of a shelter as being a cave of some sort however this is not always readily available depending on the terrain and area you are in. Some of the most important things you need to keep in mind when deciding on a place to create a shelter is of course that you are on dry land, that you have a wide variety of firewood readily available near your campsite, and to make sure that your location can be made visible for anyone that may be looking for you.

You want to make sure that you have materials needed to make your shelter and that you have chosen an area where you can be protected by winds and harsh temperatures as well as a good food source if you happen to need food. Making sure that you have a campsite and suitable shelter is essential when it comes to surviving in the wilderness and something that you need to know about in case you need to build a shelter of your own if you become lost in the woods. You also want to make sure you have knowledge about creating a fire. A fire is a “must” if you are lost in the wilderness and serves as a purpose to many things, such as cooking food, keeping you warmth, as well as protects you from predators. You want to make sure that the location that you are placing your fire in a safe area and that nothing is near it to catch on fire such as other small bushes or trees. You definitely don’t want an out of control fire on your hands. You want to make sure that when you first start building your fire that you start off with small pieces of wood and that you gradually work up to larger pieces of food. You also want to make sure that you make your fire in an area that has low grades of wind so that debris from the fire is not blown to other areas of the woods creating a forest fire.

Finding a good source of water and food is also a very important key that anyone should know if they find themselves lost in the woods. Because our bodies are made up primarily of water and we literally lose around a gallon a day, it is very necessary that you remain hydrated. You certainly don’t want to become dehydrated out in the wilderness by yourself. You can also find fruits and vegetables that can help in the amount of water that you give to your body as well as nutrients to give you the extra energy you need to survive in the outdoors. Make sure that you research the different plants that you can consume without giving your body bodily harm. Most of the time, unless you are lost in the desert, you will find natural sources of food, which is why it is essential to know what types of plants you can and cannot consume.

Another important tip that you need to know if you happen to get stranded out in the woods or mountains, is creating your SOS to alarm others that you are lost out in the woods. You can send an SOS through smoke from a fire, mirrors, or even a flash light. An SOS is three short signals, then three long signals, and another three short signals of either sound or lights. This is a great way to let people know where to look and to start a search for you and your campsite. The SOS method has been used for hundreds and hundreds of years, and has been the key to many peoples outdoor survival.

So make sure the next time you plan on going on an outdoor trip that you keep these simple and easy skills to follow to ensure your wilderness survival. You can also do additional research to find other tips and skills that you can learn before venturing out into the wilderness. Incorporate all of your skills and use them when necessary.

Your main mind set needs to be that you will literally do anything to survive and with that type of attitude you will find a better outcome.
Another great way to set your mind right when lost in the wilderness is to keep in mind inspirational thoughts. Think about all of the stories that you have heard where people have survived the wilderness, what they had to do, and the joyous outcome of them being found safe and sound. Keeping these happy thoughts in your mind will lead you to a better mind frame to continue surviving the wilderness until your rescue.
You also need to think about your reasons to live and survive this experience. Sometimes these thoughts will push a person to have a positive attitude towards getting out of the predicament they are placed in. Think about the many people in your life that are important in your life, like your friends, spouse, parents, or children. This in its self should be inspiration to press forward and making it out of the situation you are in.

It is very important that you have your mind prepared and in the right state of mind during any type of survival situation and can become the making and breaking of your survival in the wilderness. With the proper techniques and mindset you are sure to find yourself out of the wilderness and back into the comforts of your own home through these helpful mental survival tips.

Survival Tips for Even the Scariest Situations

Many people believe that survival tips only apply to getting lost in the wilderness. However, there are many other instances where your survival skills can prove to be very beneficial even if you are not lost in the woods. There are many natural disasters that can occur such as tornados, earthquakes, and even tsunamis. There is even the growing though of a massive zombie apocalypse gleaming people’s minds and setting them in frenzy. In instances such as these, survival skills are also made very important to ensure that both you and your family make it out of the situation alive and well.

Let’s take a look at some of the most popular survival skills that you need to know in the event of any type of situation our world could come across.
First and foremost you will need to prepare for any type of survival situation. Have a survival pack readily available with items such as blankets, waterproof matches, lighters, rope, a knife, water, non-perishable food items such as canned goods, portable cooking systems, first aid kit, etc. Make sure that you do your research and find out the top items that you need to include in your survival kit. You never know when you may need this survival kit so you want to make sure that your kit is always ready to retrieve in any type of worst case scenario.

So the first thing you need to keep in mind when you are put into a survival situation is if your shelter itself has been destroyed, you need to of course create yourself and your family a shelter to use. You can make a shelter out of many things such as blankets, card board, rope, string, coats, etc. Your main goal is sheltering your family from the weather and a place to sleep without being in the wide open. Because different temperatures are a factor it is very important that you take this in consideration when preparing your shelter. This means expecting rain, wind, or other dangerous weather conditions. It is very important that you build a sturdy shelter that can be used for protection as well as a place to keep you warm.

Another important aspect is creating you a fire source. You can create a fire with waterproof matches, lighters, or even creating your own fire from scratch with the help from sticks. Having a fire source is very important because it can provide you with both warmth and food preparation. A fire is very essential with any type of survival situation and should be made immediately after you have built a sturdy shelter.

It is very important to know your survival skills and that you use them when a situation comes about to use them. You will find that survival skills can come in handy with many situations and can ensure the you make it through it alive.

Survival Skills

Survival in the wilderness takes wits, patience, planning, and a clear mind. The moment you panic and react without thinking could have devastating results in the end. You must have a plan and execute it, and only change that plan if you have thought through what the benefits are and what the disadvantages are. For instance, if your plan is to follow a path you have found and all of the sudden you see a road from course to a different path may lead you back to where you started. So, as you can see…THINK THINGS THROUGH!

So now let’s get down to the nitty-gritty…
Suppose you are out hunting or hiking. It’s in the afternoon and you’ve ventured out further than you normally do to explode the unknown wilderness. As you decide to head back to your vehicle you suddenly realize you don’t know how to get back to familiar grounds. Now, at this point many people immediately just start walking and saying, “Surely I’m not lost, I will find my way back.” It’s just something in our heads that cause us to walk at this moment and start making stupid decisions. I think it’s pure urgency and the fact of not wanting to accept that this has happened.
At the moment you feel like you are lost you need to follow these simple steps…

S.T.O.P. = Stop, Think, Observe, and Prepare.

Many times just sitting for a few minutes and thinking about what you did and where you went will end this nightmare before it starts. However, you never know that fact so you need to open your pack and take out your red/orange yarn. Cut off a 12 inch piece and tie it to an easily visible tree. This is your first marker indicating your first known lost zone. It would also be wise to take out your notepad and write, “My name is blah blah, and today’s date and time is…this is where I realized I was lost”. This could really help search parties and increase your chances of being found. It will also help you if you are trying to find your way out and you happen to walk in a big circle like so many lost wanders do.

Start walking in the direction you came from, but if after only a few minutes things are still unfamiliar, turn around and go back to the spot you were at. It’s late in the afternoon so sorry, you aren’t going anywhere. Many people tend to wander until dark and then realize they are cold and have not shelter and freeze to death. Don’t think it couldn’t happen to you. Just wait it out until the morning.

Now that you are back to your lost point it’s time to get to work. You are going to need a fire and a shelter.

For right now you could just make a quick shelter for the night, and work on making a nicer one in the morning. Just get it made quickly so you can start gathering wood for a fire. Find two trees approximately 6-8 ft apart. Tie your string from one tree to the other about three feet off the ground. Now simply take your tarp and drape it over the string, dividing the tarp. Usually tarp will have metal rings at the corners. Find small 3-4 inch long sticks with forked edges and secure the ends into the ground. Your shelter should be up in minutes and look like this.

Simple String Shelter for Survival

Now that that’s been tackled, let’s start gathering wood. My rule of thumb is when you think you have enough wood, gather 5 times as much. I would rather wake up with wood left in the morning than be cold during the night because I ran out of wood. Gathering wood does take a lot of energy so work efficiently. You need to start three separate piles. One for tender and very small twigs and sticks, one for small limbs 2-3 inches in diameter, and one for larger logs in the 4-5 inch diameter. For the bigger ones, don’t worry if they are long. If you can’t break the wood, just put it on the fire and leave the excess hanging out and feed it into the fire as it burns down. No one said it has to be pretty. Just Gather as much downed dry limbs as possible. Green wood tend to not burn, but after a fire has been going several hours and has really hot coals it will burn, just not as well.

Now that you have gathered your wood, take out your survival knife and start stabbing the ground and dig a hole 2-3 feet in diameter. Dig this hole about 4-5 inches deep. Once again this will take some energy so work at a pace, but a steady one. You’re not digging for gold. This hole will be your pit for the fire. It will also keep you coals in a good pit so you will have a really hot fire. Place some dry leaves or dry pine needles in the center of the pit and light them. You could even use a small amount of toilet paper if you have some. As the leaves burn start placing small twigs on the fire, be steady and gradual as you add them. Soon you should have a small fire going. Start placing bigger sticks about ½ inch in diameter and work your way up. As your fire starts getting bigger, start stacking the 2-3 inch limbs in a lean-to or pyramid fashion. Your 2-3 inch limbs should be broken into 18 inch sections. This will let the fire breathe, getting oxygen to your coals below. Add small sticks to the bottom to keep the base of the fire hot. Keep add bigger and bigger limbs until you burn a big log in the fire. Don’t just throw the logs on flat; this can kill your fire. It’s is important to stack the logs in a leaning fashion in order to get the best results.

Your stack of wood should look like this…

Now that your fire is hot and toasty let’s warm some food if your brought your rod and a few cans of stew. Find two sticks about 1/2-3/4 inch in diameter and about 4-5 feet long. They need to have a fork at one end, similar to a “Y” shape. Stick these in the ground on each side of your fire deep enough so they can withstand the weight a Foldger’s can or a small cooking pot. Place your rod in the “Y’s” and hang and cook. It’s that easy.

If you have food and water for the night you are good now to get some shut eye, but I would advise you add wood during the night so your fire stays going and hot. If you don’t have food or water, don’t worry…we can deal with that in the morning.

So, let’s say you have got up early as you probably didn’t sleep well the first night. Hopefully, people are already aware of your absence and are looking for you. One of the most important things to do before you leave on a hunting or hiking trip or anywhere for that matter is let someone know where you are going and when you will be back. Even if you have no family near, let a neighbor know. This will greatly increase the chance of you being found fast, but you mustn’t think that way. You should think no one is looking for you and you must survive. You don’t want to become vulnerable. Now, back to what I was saying…

Before you venture out for extra food and water you may want to gather more wood for the fire later. After doing so, take your pack and tarp, who knows, you may become lost again! Throw some wood on the fire just enough to keep it going and hot while you are gone. We can’t worry about silly stray fires and whatnot. This is your survival we are talking about here. As long as you picked a safe spot for the fire and you have cleared the area around it, the fire should be fine.

If you want to find a certain direction and don’t have a compass you can use this method.
Find a stick about 2 inches in diameter and hammer it into the ground in an open sunny spot. As a shadow cast on the ground, place a small stone at the end of the sticks shadow. Wait about 30 minutes to an hour, go back and place another stone at the end of the new shadow. The first stone represents west. The second stone represents east. In the northern hemisphere the sun faces away from the shadows and just the opposite in the southern hemisphere.

It will look like this…

Now if you were prepared you won’t need to do this, but it doesn’t hurt to know this either.

Now, that you have ventured out look for areas to fish and set fish traps and places to set traps for animals. If you have your gun, GREAT…if not, here are some tricks you can try.

If you find a water source for fishing try and find some bait in the area and start setting you some lines. Meanwhile, you can make a native fish trap. Do this by gathering several sticks about an inch In diameter about two feet tall. Go to the edge of the water and start sticking the sticks into the mud at water’s edge. Keep doing this process as if you are building a small wall of vertical sticks. Run them out into the water about 3 feet. Shape them in a manner that they look like the letter “M”. Leave the center open so that small the medium size fish can enter. Place another stick in the ground at the base of the “M” and attach bait such as insects or chum from fish you have caught. A fish will enter to get the bait, but will be unable to exit. This makes for an easy meal as the natives used this method of fishing often. I usually make three of four of these the increase my chances. It never hurts.

Your trap should look like this…

Now as for trapping some game you could try this if you don’t have a gun. Find an acorn tree or one that you have spotted with squirrels or other wildlife. Once you have found a tree or presents of wildlife, find a large stone or short long weighing two or three times as much as the animal you intend to trap. Now gather 2 sticks about ½-¾ of an inch and 6-8 inches in length. You really have to work with it and finesse it, but you need to lay the sticks in a manner to create a shape of the number “4”. Now, you may be wondering how to make the number 4 with only two sticks. Don’t worry the bottom horizontal line of the 4 is actually going to be made with your fishing line. Carve notches in the sticks to make the vertical and forty five degree angle line of the four. Then, attach fishing line to the bottom of the forty five degree angled piece and tie a small stick to the end. Stretch the line over the tall vertical piece and wrap it once around the stick. Now, take another random stick to make your triggering system. Now place the stone or log on top of the vertical piece angling the 4 slightly. Your trap is set.
Now you should be good on gathering food let’s talk about water a little. As I stated before never get water from a source that’s still. This could be contaminated with bad bacteria. Find water that is running and take it back to camp and boil for five minutes. I still boil the water even with purifier tablets. You can never be too safe. If you can’t find water and as a last resort you could drink your own urine. I know, its gross to think about, but if it meant your life you would do it. I advise against it, but urine is sterile and it could be consumed under critical situations.

Some other things you want to start doing at camp is make sky markers for helicopters. Make them easily visible in a nearby area about 15-20 feet in diameter. Making the shape of “V” indicates “need assistance” and an “X” indicates “need medical assistance”.
It would also be wise to gather green leaves or green pine needles and keep plenty by your fire in case you hear a helicopter or search parties. Place lots of the green needles on the fire. This will give off an orange colored smoke that can be seen far away. Placing an emergency blanket over the smoke briefly and removing it can send signals. Do this by placing the blanket over the fire sending several puffs of smoke in the air to alarm of great danger. Be careful not to catch the blanket on fire though! J This was used by the natives for years as a form of communication and it still holds as a tool taught to Boy Scouts as it was to me.
So now that you are prepared and know what task you need to perform each day let’s talk about if you decide to leave and try and find your way out.
So, if it’s been several days and you haven’t been found yet you may decide to try and find your way out. While this can be dangerous, take your pack and keep your wits. First make a plan and find north and decide which direction you want to start. I would naturally suggest the way you came in as you realized you were lost as you have a better chance of noticing something familiar.
Get to a high point and pick out a landmark such as a tree in the far distance. Place an arrow shape of the ground with sticks to indicate to search parties the direction you went and possibly leave a note.

Walk to that tree. Tie on a piece of yarn. With your back straight in line with the camp site and tree find another landmark straight ahead and walk to it; always keeping in a straight line. Tie another piece of yarn and leave another arrow of your direction.
This will keep you in a straight line and quite possibly have you crossing a road or running into civilization in no time. It has been proven that we naturally walk in a huge circle so doing this will prevent that. If you walk until late afternoon, stop and camp. Rinse and repeat. You get my drift.

If you happen to keep walking downhill you may come up on a stream or creek. If you do congratulations! You’re on the pathway to freedom! Simply follow downstream. Creeks and streams lead to rivers, and rivers lead to civilization!

Now that you have the necessary skills for survival I am going to include a list of things you could eat such as bugs and plants if you happen to not have much luck finding food.

Edible Bugs and Plants for Survival

If you aren’t having any luck with finding fish or game you could resort to bugs and plants. This can be a risky and tricky thing to experiment with unless you know what you’re eating for sure. I would suggest you study this more in depth, but I will briefly touch on some things you can snack on in the wilderness.

· Grasshoppers– discard head, legs, and wings
· Grub Worms– eaten raw or cooked
· Termites– can be eaten raw
· Pill bugs or Rollie-Pollie– cooked
· June bug– cooked
· Dragonfly– raw or cooked
· Crickets– cooked
· Worms– raw or cooked

· Asparagus– cooked
· Clovers– cooked
· Cattail– cooked
· Prickly Pear Cactus– cooked
· Dandelions– cooked
· Plantain– cooked

You can eat some of these raw, but once again you need to study these on your own and maybe purchase a guide to edible bugs and plants. It is safest to cook the bugs or plants in the event they harbor parasites. This is serious business and could kill you if you make a bad decision. So know what you’re eating. You can also try the touch, taste, consume method. Touch it to your skin and wait several minutes. If there is no reaction, hold it in your mouth for several minutes, but don’t eat it. If there is no reaction consume a small portion and wait 8 hours. If no reaction you should be able to consume it safely. If you notice a reaction, induce vomiting and drink as much water as you can.

Now you have a few more things you can grub on while you are in the wilderness and increase your chance of survival.

Desert Survival Tips

Like the wilderness has its own survival tips, the desert does also. Although a deserts survival tactics are a bit different from your normal wilderness survival tips, they still require you to have the same resources, food, water, and shelter. You might think that a desert trip is a fun and exciting event, and it is, that is of course unless you get lost in the blistering hot and dehydrating desert. Here are a few tips to go by the next time you decide to go on a desert trip, just in case the worst case scenario plays out and you become lost.

First and foremost you will need to secure a shelter for yourself. For a desert atmosphere the most common types of shelters to create are a sandwich shelter or a lean to shelter. These types of shelters are very easy to build and can protect you from the blistering sun and sand filled wind that can create awful sand burn. You want to make sure that you start creating your shelter when the sun starts to go down because of the levels of temperature your body will be placed in. You want to make sure that your body stays hydrated and cramming yourself into a shelter for long periods of time during the hottest part of the day will only lead to a substantial amount of dehydration.

You can use many things to create your shelter such as blankets, cords, rope, and even ponchos and all of these items should be placed in your survival kit before going on your desert adventure. It is very important to create a shelter for yourself before nightfall however, because there are many different animals that lurk in the desert and having an adequately built shelter can prevent animals from bothering you or harming you in anyway.

It is also very important to have a water source available in a desert atmosphere if you are lost or stranded. Because it is so hot in the desert, your body is more easily dehydrated than you would be in a wilderness atmosphere. It is also harder to find a water source in the midst of the desert, which is why most survivalists will create their very own water filter system to create water without the use of a stream, river, or any other body of water.

The only materials that you need is a plastic sheet, this method is most commonly called the solar still water method. The first thing you want to do is dig a hole in the soil and then place the plastic over the hole. The sun will then hit the plastic and create an evaporation of water from the soil, leaving you with a condensed form of water on the inside of your plastic.

Another option is by consuming water through the help from cacti. Many deserts are filled with cacti and can easily be punctured and opened to give you a water supply. So if you are finding it hard to find plastic to create the solar still method, then start searching for cacti to provide you with water to rehydrate your body.

Even though the desert is smoldering hot, you still need a fire source to cook food and heed off other predator animals. Make sure that you create a fire somewhere very close to your campsite so that you can still use the fire source as a protection mechanism. Making sure that you have a trusty set of waterproof matches or a lighter can help you create a fire in a hurry, although it can be a difficult task finding wood in the desert it is still possible. Many survivalists opt in to bringing along a portable grill because of the scarcity of finding wood in the desert. So many people when packing up their survival gear for the desert will find themselves taking along a handy portable grill also… just in case.

It is also very important to carry a first aid kit for minor injuries as well as a compass and map to help you with your navigation through the desert. The desert can be endless and you want to make sure that you still keep in contact with your campsite at all times. Most commonly when rescuers are trying to find people they will find the campsite and in turn find the missing person. So make sure that even if you venture off trying to find your way back that you provide yourself with the right landmarks or markings in the sand to distinguish exactly where you are. There is nothing worse than being lost and getting even more lost.

Although survival in the desert is a bit different than wilderness survival in the woods you still have to make sure that you have the common necessities to ensure that you survive such as water, food, and shelter. So the next time you decide to go on a desert trip or adventure make sure that you fill your survival kit with tools that you may need as well as water and food sources in case you can find any if you become lost. Use these tips and more when it comes to surviving in the desert.

Foods for Wilderness Survival

When you find yourself lost in the wilderness, it is very important to know what types of foods are available for you to consume. Most of your food can be found naturally and come in different varieties such as wild berries, fish and other water foods, insects and bugs, birds, and other large animals. It is very important that you have knowledge about each different type of food source and should be researched and learned about before any type of outdoor trip or adventure. Here is a glance of all the different types of food you can use for survival.

Wild Berries – are one of the easiest and most commonly found food items when you are lost in the woods. Most of the wild berries you will find in the wilderness are edible, however you need to make sure that you research all of the different types of wild berries there are and what they look like, so that you make sure you don’t consume a berries that could potentially harm you. Wild berries are especially easy to find in the summer months, however you can still find some wild berries that will grow in the winter time. So make sure that you research and know your berries for food supply when you are lost in the woods.
Fish and Food from the Water – can easily be found and if they are a source from freshwater in North America are most commonly safe to eat. You can eat fish raw, however it is advised that you warm and cook the fish from a fire or portable grill. Catching fish does not have to be a hard task to perform at all. Many fish you can catch barehanded. The easiest way to capture a ton of fish is by waiting by where the fish are found swimming by and then pinning them down to the bottom of the stream. Although it sounds difficult, in actuality it is not. You can also catch other animals for the water to consume such as shell fish and crayfish. All of these water animals are safe to eat and can be easily captured to give you the nutrients and energy you need to survive in the woods.
Insect and Bugs – two of the safest insects and bugs to eat are grasshoppers and wood grubs. Although they aren’t very tasty they can give you the protein and nutrients you need to provide your body while lost in the woods. These two types of insects can be consumed without cooking, however if it is possible it would be better to cook the two. You also want to make sure that you remove the wings and legs from the grasshopper. You can find grasshoppers in grassy areas and wood grubs can be found in rotten logs. There are a ton of insects and bugs that you can consume if you are trapped in the wilderness however, it is wise to gain a good knowledge about different types of insects and bugs that you can consume. Not all insects and bugs can
be consumed without giving you bodily harm which is why it is so important that you know what types are safe and which ones are dangerous.
Birds – Although it is very hard to capture a bird without a gun it is possible with rocks. However, survivalists find it much easier to capture a bird from its nest or to capture bird eggs. Capturing bird eggs is one of the top survival food items that someone can get because they are filled with tons of protein that your body needs to give it energy and to survive. You always want to make sure that you cook the eggs before consumption. Never eat eggs raw.
Larger Mammal Animals – Although it can be a daunting task to capture a larger animal without any weapons, you can still however capture an animal through a trap and then kill them to eat. The easiest way to kill an animal for consumption purposes without the use of a knife or gun is by a rock. Make sure that you cook the animal thoroughly. All though you can consume some large animals raw, it is better to be precautious and cook all of your food that you capture.

Although being lost in the woods can be a very scary situation, making sure that you know the foods that are readily available and surrounding you can alleviate one worry off of your shoulder. Making sure that your body stays hydrated and nourished is very important in your goal to surviving the outdoors, so make sure you keep these tips in mind and use them if you ever become lost in the woods.

Killing Animals to Survive the Wilderness

If you ever find yourself lost in the woods one of the most important things you will need to know is how to kill and capture food for you to consume. Although many people are against the killing of animals, however when it comes to survival you have to be able to give your body the ability and energy to survive until you are rescued, and for many this means by killing an animal to eat to survive. There are many different ways that you can kill your food to consume.

Of course one of the easiest and common ways to kill your food is by the use of a knife. However, there are many people that do not have knife when they become lost in the woods and have to use other methods to capture their food. Fish can be caught barehanded without an use of a weapon and for larger and smaller mammal animals you can capture them in a trap and then kill them with the use of a rock. Capturing food anyway possible is very significant and means everything to your survival in the wilderness.

Here is a brief list of some of the easiest animals to hunt, kill, and gain valuable energy and protein from.

Porcupines – these are very slow moving animals and very easy to capture and gain nutrients and protein from. Basically if you can walk and hold onto a stick you are already one step ahead of capturing your animal, killing it, and then consuming it. However, a porcupine doesn’t go down so easy and many people find that you have to beat them in the head repeatedly before they can be assumed dead. The easiest way to prepare the animal for cooking and consumption is to roll over the porcupine onto its back and then cut it open through its chest and abdominal area.
Because porcupines have quills, you want to avoid them if at all possible so that you don’t stick yourself. The quills can easily be removed by the inside of the stomach without even having to touch the quills. You can then take the meat from the porcupine and cook it over a fire. Porcupines have been used for many, many years for people who have become lost in the woods and an easy way to score some food while trying to survive the wilderness.

Fish – are also very easy to obtain for the consumption of food. Generally a survivalist will pack a hook and line just for fishing purposes. Although this is one of the easiest ways to capture food, you can still however capture fish without a hook and line. You simply find out where the fish a swimming and pin them down to the bottom of the water source barehanded. You can also find it very simple to find a stick with a pointed end and stab the fish as they swim by to capture your food source. Fish are also filled with protein and nutrients that your body needs to survive. Simply skin the fish and cook them on your fire and you have a tasty and fulfilling meal to help you through your wilderness survival. You can also eat the fish raw, however if you have the fire and ready and available, survivors find it easier to consume when cooked.

Snakes, Bird, and other Aquatic Animals – snakes are another animal that can be easily caught when you are stuck out in the wilderness. For the nonvenomous snakes you can easily capture them with your own hands or by the use of a sharp stick for venomous types of snakes. Birds are also a very popular food item when you are trapped in the wilderness. Although birds themselves are hard to capture unless you have a gun readily available, you can however consume bird eggs through their nests in the trees. After you have retrieved the bird eggs you want to make sure that you break the egg and cook it thoroughly. Bird eggs are filled with nutrients and protein and are one of the top foods that survivalists will choice to consume when lost in the wilderness.

You can also capture other aquatic animals aside from fish such as crayfish, clams, and turtles. These are easily caught by your bare hands or with a sharp stick and should be cooked thoroughly. These types of small aquatic animals can be found in numbers in many different freshwater locations. Your options really are endless when it comes to finding, capturing, and consuming an aquatic type animal.

Survival Equipment

It doesn’t matter if you’re taking the family on a camping trip for the weekend, or if you’re going on the hunting trip you’ve been planning for months, there are certain things you need to have in order to be prepared for the worst. Below I am going to cover the most critical things you should have in your possession in the event you become lost in the wilderness. Conquering nature is not possible, but adapting to it and surviving it is!

Here is a list of items you will need in your survival pack. If you don’t have these items handy in a backpack you should acquire them immediately for the future and always keep your bag in an easy-to-access part of your home, or on you in the event you go out into the wilderness.

Water- This is the most important item to have with you. It is crucial to keep yourself hydrated. You don’t know how long you could be without a good supply of water, so use it sparingly. I recommend carrying a plastic canteen.
Water Purification Tablets- Water purifying tablets are a handy item to have in the event you run out of water. You should find a water source that is running. NEVER drink water that is still. Water that is still can be stagnated and have some very nasty bacteria; causing you to have severe diarrhea and vomiting which will lead to dehydration.
Roll of String- I recommend taking a roll of string. 1/8 inch nylon string works well. This can be used to tie limbs together to make a shelter, for tying sharp objects to sticks for a makeshift weapon, and for setting hunting traps. There are several other ways the string will come in handy as you are in the woods.
Bic Lighters- BUY THEM NOW – I carry 2 Bic lighters with me in a waterproof bag such as GLAD in the event they get wet. The reason I say Bic is because if they become wet, they will dry out quickly and be back in working order in no time. They are also one of the most reliable lighters for the price.

Waterproof Matches– BUY THEM NOW – I would also have a box of waterproof matches. You never know, you may need them too.

Flint Rock- BUY IT NOW –  Okay, I know we are going overboard with fire, but take it from me, you do not want to spend the night in woods without a fire and certainly if it’s cold and raining. What if you lost your bag of lighters and your waterproof matches suck and won’t work properly? You can never be too prepared.

Good Compass – BUY IT NOW – Of course you need a compass. Don’t just go buy one and throw it in the bag either. Learn how to use it. I also advise you don’t purchase a cheap one. This is one of your lifelines we are talking about here!

Small Coffee Can– I take along a small can that has 2 drilled holes at the top. I run a wire through the holes for a handle and make a hook so that it can be hung over a fire. You can also take a small pot, but the can cuts down on baggage. This is great for boiling water or warming food if you don’t have a pot.

First Aid Kit Hiking – BUY IT NOW -This is valuable to have if you get injured. This kit provides everything to aid to most common wounds. Sorry, they don’t include a serum for a zombie bite yet!

Whistle- BUY IT NOW – A whistle is a great way to attract a search party.

Ball of Red or Orange Yarn- There won’t be any crocheting, this will be used for markers to help you identify areas of your surroundings and for search parties to find you. Just cutting off a 12 inch piece and tying it to a tree limb where it’s easily visible will do the trick.

Flashlights- I would suggest 2 flashlights and back up batteries just in case. You will thank yourself 1,000 times over at night or investigating a cave for shelter and it will also help search parties find you at night.

Hand Sanitizer- This is good to have on hand after cleaning fish or field dressing an animal and keeping down on the chance of you getting an infection and becoming ill.

Identification- It’s always a good idea to have identification on you. Who knows, you could hit your head and forget who you are!

3ft Long Steel Rebar- This is great to have with you! I find two sticks shaped like a “Y”. Simply stick them in the ground on the outsides of the fire and place to metal rebar in the “Y’s”. Now you can hang your can or pot over the fire.

Small Tarp and Emergency Blanket- The blanket will help keep you warm and the tarp can be used for a roof or walls for a makeshift shelter. Just roll them up and tie them to the bottom of your pack.

Fishing Line, Hooks, and Bobbers- You will need to find a water source and begin fishing too. I suggest you just go buy and entire roll of 8 pound test line and some hooks. It wouldn’t hurt to grab a few small bobbers. This is great to hand with you and it doesn’t take up much room. You can grab some lures, but there will be plenty of bait in the woods.

Extra Socks and Gloves- It would be wise to take an extra pair of socks and gloves. You never know when your original pair may become wet. Wet socks in the cold sucks, and you could come down with a cold. This is not what you need in the wilderness. You need to take every step to protect yourself from sickness and infections. It would be a good idea to carry a toboggan also to keep your head warm from cold elements.

Kitchen Trash Bag- This can be used to transport large amounts of water.

Notepad/Journal and a Pen– I keep a notepad with me just to jot down notes about my surroundings and I can also leave notes on trees in the woods to help search parties find me.

Small Cans of Food/Trail Mix– It wouldn’t hurt to have a bag of trail mix to snack on and a couple of cans of food with peel back tabs on them. Grab a spoon while you’re at it.

Rainproof Poncho- BUY IT NOW – You can buy these for little to nothing and they are great to have when mother nature comes raining down on you. High Visibility is a good idea also.

Survival Knife- BUY THE BEST –  I always carry my survival knife with me in the woods. It’s very sharp for sharpen sticks for a trap or a make shift weapon, great for field dressing game and cleaning fish, has plenty of tools inside, and it includes my compass.

Multi Tool-BUY IT NOW – I think the name says it all. Get one; there are a number of things it will come in handy for.

Wire Saw- BUY IT NOW – This is great to have and doesn’t cost much at all. After starting a good hot fire you can even burn green wood. The wire saw is compact, and makes quick work of a 3 or 4 inch branch. It also is a lifesaver when cutting wood to make a shelter.

Small Hatchet- BUY IT NOW – This is good for cutting branches and splitting short, large logs by driving the hatchet into the top end of the log and taking another available log to hammer the hatchet through. It can be worn on a belt just like your machete.

Machete- BUY IT NOW – This is a great tool to have on hand. Not only can this be used to defend you, but this is great for chopping down saplings and removing excess brush.

If You Have a Gun, Carry Plenty of Ammo- I think you can figure out this is valuable to have for hunting for food in case you run out on what little you brought with you. This could really mean the difference in eating and having energy, or starving to death.

Small Can of Lighter Fluid– This is great for getting a fire started the easy way.

For Luxury Only, A Roll of Toilet Paper- Your rear end will thank you…well until you run out…then it time to gather leaves!

Okay, so I think we covered all the general and necessary items you need to have in your pack. Don’t worry, I know it seems like a lot, but it’s not and it will all fit into a basic field backpack. (Excluding the rod, this will stick out the top of the pack) I know some of you may be thinking some of these items are not necessary to have, but I beg to differ. Everything I have listed above is the exact list I have in my pack and you should too. The first time you are lost, scared, and confused, and you reach in your pack for something you need and you don’t have it because you thought “you wouldn’t NEED it” you will be irate with yourself, I promise.

When it comes to your pack I would suggest you find one with a waist strap for added support for your back. What you will be carrying won’t weigh a ton, but after a while you will be glad you spend the extra money for a good pack.

You should purchase a good pair of high top hiking shoes for thinsulated boots to give support to your ankles in rough terrain and for warmth.
As for what you’re wearing never go out in the wilderness without adequate clothing. Don’t wear a short sleeve shirt and a coat for an Eskimo! Dress in layers! This is very important. If you start to sweat your clothes will become wet and you could get a cold and you are also dehydrating your body.

Now that we have covered what you need to have with you let’s start getting into some skills you need if you want to survive the wilderness alone.

Additional “Must Have” Survival Gear

So you have planned an exciting, adventurous, and fun filled outdoor trip, right? Now it’s time to pack up your basic survival gear, just in case the worst case scenario happens. Here are a few of the most popular “additional” items to have in your backpack the next time you decide to go on your next outdoor adventure!

You first need to think about the common things that you would need if you happened to get lost in the outdoors. Imagine if you were lost in the woods and what all you would need to make your survival a priority. One of the most important things you need to first pack is water and canned foods as discussed above. You can keep filled canteens for your water supply and you always want to make sure that you take along canned foods because they are non-perishable food items. Having both food and water packed in your backpack is very important supplies that you should always have when going on an outdoor trip.

You also want to make sure that you pack a can opener to open your canned foods as well as a bowl and utensils to eat with. It is also very important that you carry a metal pot to warm your food from. Another important tool to have packed in your backpack is a knife. You can use a knife for many different things such as skinning animals and food preparation, cutting rope, and you can also use it as a weapon against preying animals. Another important supply you should carry in your backpack is a lighter or matches to help you start a fire. Many people don’t know how to start a fire from scratch, and although this is a very important skill to have if you are lost in the woods, for those of you who don’t know how to start a fire you will need to make sure you pack a lighter and matches to help you get the flames you need to start your fire.

Carrying extra blankets is also a very important supply to have when you are going on an outdoor trip. You never know if you happen to get injured and you need the cloth to help the wound or if you need the extra warmth during cold nights on your campsite. You can also use blankets to create yourself a shelter if you can’t find any other types of material to make a secure shelter. Another great thing to have in your survival backpack is water purifier tablets. This can be a very handy tool if you happen to run out of your own supply of water. A lot of the times water cannot be found free flowing in the wilderness and you can use the water purification tablets to disinfect any water that you find, allowing you to be able to consume without any risk of it harming your body. An excellent idea in general is to carry a LIFESTRAW.

A few other important components that need to be packed if you are going on an outdoor trip are a compass and a map of the location you will be taking your trip to. This can help you keep track of where you are and how far away you are from your  way back. You also want to make sure that you carry a watch with you as well to better help you with keeping up with the time of the day or night. You can become very unaware of what day or time it may be when you are lost.

Always carry your first aid kit. Your kit should include first aid equipment such as band aids, disinfectants, alcohol pads, etc… basically anything that you would need for a basic injury.

Although there are a ton of different supplies that you can take with you in your backpack during your outdoor trip, these are some of the most important supplies that you need to have packed the next time you decided to go on a wilderness trip. Make sure that you research other items that you can pack in your survival backpack, just make sure that you don’t make your backpack to heavy because you want to still be comfortable and mobile at the same time. Realize you can’t take the whole house, however you do need to pack the essentials to surviving even days out in the wilderness by yourself. So make sure the next time you plan your next outdoor adventure that you include these basic survival items in your backpack.

Knives and Wilderness Survival

One of the most important tools that you need to have whenever you are planning a camping, hiking, or any other type of outdoor adventure is a knife. You can use a knife for many different things such as cutting various things, building a shelter, killing food, as well as protection from other animals. A knife is also very convenient and lightweight which makes it very easy to carry with you on any types of outdoor adventure.

There are many different knives that you can take a long with you such as knives at your local outdoor stores. If you find yourself lost in the woods and needing a handy weapon such as a knife you can also make them yourself in many different ways. One of the most popular types of homemade knives can be made by stone. Simply find a stone that is pointed. Once you have selected the stone you are going to use to create a knife your next step is to lash the stone with either a stick or wood, creating a knife end with the stone. Another popular knife you can create is a bone knife. These are very popular amongst survivalist and can be easily created from any type of bone that you can find, such as an animal bone. After you have a bone you then take a rock or wood and shape it into a pointed knife. A bone knife can be very useful in making punctures.

Another type of knife that you can make when stranded out in the wilderness is a wood knife. You want to make sure that you choose a type of wood that is hard and dry. You want to take your piece of wood and use a stone or other type of wood to shape the piece of wood to a pointed end. A wooden knife is one of the most common choices of weapons to use when stranded in the wilderness, because they are easily created and the materials are literally right at your fingertips.

You can also make a knife with bamboo. Bamboo is very easy to shape but still provides a strong point to use as your jagged edge of your knife. Taking a stone and shaping the knife with a sharp point is very easy to do, that is if you can find a source of bamboo in the area that you are lost in. You can also find metals throughout the wilderness that you can use and have been proven to be very effective in protecting yourself from other predators, as well as building and cutting things. The metal acts just as a real knife does and if you are lucky enough to find some spare metal around, you can easily shave it down into the shape of a knife with a very sharp point.

Knives have always been a very important and significant tool to have if you are deciding to embark on any type of outdoor trip or adventure and should definitely be an item that is a necessity for your survival backpack. So make sure the next time you plan on going on a wilderness adventure that you make sure to stop at the store and grab you some reliable wilderness knives or make your own homemade knife through one of the methods described. You’ll find that a handy knife can be a very valuable tool to have when you are trying to surviving in the outdoors.

Usually you can expect to spend at least a couple of hundred dollars for one of these courses. They could end up spending a thousand or more for some others. As for the knowledge you gain and the benefits you will get, it is well worth the money.
