    Survival Skills: How to and Why Make Bone Broth - 0

    If I could get back all the wild game skeletons that I have discarded the years, I’d do it in a heartbeat. I’d also have a very creepy freezer that would scare the kids, but that’s what you get when you venture down the path to make broth from bones.

    Take a look at the culinary traditions from distant history, and you’ll find that many of the cultures that had mastered the production of large cooking vessels were also making soup in those pots, sometimes perpetually. Since the cooking fire was both the heat source for the home and the cooking hearth, these fires ran constantly in colder weather and gave the home dweller a never-ending heat to make soup.

    Being both a parent and a survival instructor, it’s easy for me to spot opportunities that will better prepare my kids for emergencies and survival scenarios. There are many ways train yourself and your kids in self-reliance skills. There are also many people who you can pay to provide your kids’ training.

    Survival Skills: How To Desalinate Water in the Field - 1

    Last week, I received a call from some friends who provide survival training for a branch of the Department of Justice. They were mid-experiment, trying to desalinate water with field expedient gear. Short of building a still as featured on the show Moonshiners, they couldn’t figure out how to achieve the necessary controlled water condensation. Their results were hit and miss, as many of my experiments with this technique have been. I have built several pressure canner stills (for water, don’t get too excited!) and some tea kettle water distillers, but these large pieces gear aren’t going to fit in anybody’s backpack or survival kit.

    Survival Skills: The Ojibwa Bird Snare, Part 2 - 0

    After last week’s post about the Ojibwa bird snare, I wanted to follow up with some more details and options for this unusual trap. One of the most fascinating parts of trapping (for me anyway) is the variation that you can employ with your traps. This bird trap is no exception. Change up the “engine” that drives this simple machine, or place it in an unexpected location, and the Ojibwa bird snare can act like a whole new trap. Try out these two options on your next adventure. [ Read Full Post ]

    Winter Survival Do's And Don'ts - 2

    Bad winter weather is one of the roughest backdrops you can have for a survival scenario. Every necessary task of subsistence becomes more difficult in the cold. Very often, little mistakes become amplified by these conditions. A winter survival situation is no time to cut corners or take unnecessary risks. This is about as challenging as it gets. To keep things simple, should you end up fighting the freeze, consider this list of do’s and don’ts for winter emergencies in the outdoors.

    SHELTER
    DO take shelter for your most critical survival priority. Use insulation and supplemental heat sources as much as possible. This might mean ripping up the upholstery in your vehicle to use as insulation, or placing hot stones in the floorboards of the car to warm it. Whatever you deem necessary to live, do it.
