As survivalists, we're all familiar with lots of wildlife and the various kinds of animals. And that means we also know of the abundance of them. While they obviously roam free in the wild, there's plenty that still live in suburban and even occasionally urban areas. And right now, we brush them off and don't think too heavily about them right now. We either encounter them in the wild and simply move on, as that's their home, or we find them in a town or city, and just shoo them away. While that currently makes sense and is the rational … [Read more...] about The Survival Live Trap That’s a Must-Have for Every Prepper!
When it comes to wilderness survival, there are several resources and commodities out there that are key to everyone's survival. When I say that, your mind probably drifts towards things like food, shelter, and water. While those are of course very useful, there's one resource many people forget or leave out. That special resource is none other than fire. It's been used since the dawn of the caveman, yet we never give it the credit it deserves. It does so many things for our survival, from keeping us warm, to giving us light, to cooking our … [Read more...] about (Video) 10 of the Most Ingenious Ways to Make a Fire Including What Kind of Natural Tinder to Use for Them
Most of the time in SHTF situations, many people decide the best plan is to stay in your home. And that's not a bad idea. It's a familiar area with total freedom to do whatever you want in, once SHTF. It's easier than wandering around, revealing yourself to others, and heading into the unknown. However, most of our current homes are still not that safe. Sure, we know them and the area well, and usually, the other folks that live around, but they aren't very physically defensive. If you have any security, it's usually just locks, an alarm … [Read more...] about Vital Tips for Securing and Fortifying a House When a Collapse Happens
SHTF situations rarely go as we want them to. No matter how much we prepare, we can never truly predict what's going to happen, and sometimes situations are too tough for us to overcome. It's just an unfortunate fact that many of us will have to face if a disaster rolls around. And a major reason that's bad is because you don't know the length of a survival scenario or when you'll find some kind of escape. And that means it's possible all of your food and other supplies will run out long before you're done with SHTF. That's not the end of … [Read more...] about Scavenging in Cities Post-Collapse: The Good, The Bad, and How to Do it Right
Food is and always will be an essential part of life. It's one of the few things we absolutely need to survive, even if we can go long periods without it. Plus, it's what we bond over, and what we enjoy all the time. However, if you find yourself in the outdoors or in a survival situation, it becomes less of something we simply enjoy to a goal we have to work towards. Of course, if you're just in a regular wilderness retreat, it's less critical, but it's still nice to not have to give up and drive to town to grab a bite to eat. With the … [Read more...] about The Best Spring Trout Flies on the Market and Why People Are Going Crazy for Them!
Have you ever heard the saying "less is more?" Often in survival situations, we tend to over pack and over gather all of the resources and supplies we need, just to be safe. And while that's not always a bad idea, that much gear can weigh you down or cause disorganization. That's when the saying I mentioned comes into play. At first, it may seem like the more the gear the better, but you can actually do a lot with way less. In fact, in some cases having less gear is better than more, which is where that saying applies. Of course, I must … [Read more...] about (Video) This Guy Heads Out Into The Wild With Just a Survival Knife. How He Makes Do? Incredible!

In survival situations, we're more vulnerable than most cases. We're not necessarily weaker or less prepared, it's just that there are plenty of more threats in the wild, and we don't have our usual homes, friends, family, and neighbors to be around to help us out. It's a lot more of a solo endeavor unless you've brought a pal or two. So, how do you protect yourself without most of your usual fleet of help? Well, you should first want the right gear, and maybe some weapons or self-defense lessons. However, even that may not be enough for … [Read more...] about 7 Types of Survival Shelters That Are Useful in All Kinds of Situations
The wild is a vast space. That goes without saying and is something well already knew. But when we never really consider the scope of how much-uncivilized land there is out there. However, that's not a bad thing. In fact, that's exactly what draws us to survive in the wild.
