    Survival Skills: Build The Ojibwa Bird Snare - 2

    With snow on the ground in winter, setting traps for food can be trickier than usual. But a skilled trapper should have plenty of options, including some classic traps of ancestral origins. If you have a pole with a hole drilled near the top, a bit of twine, a twig, and a rock, you can set up the Ojibwa bird trap to catch small birds to add to your emergency food supply. While each little bird is not a meal in itself (less than 100 calories), add them together and you’re getting somewhere.  [ Read Full Post ]

    Survival Skills: Make A Swedish Marshmallow For Water - 0

    Being snowbound is a bit like being stuck in a life raft in the middle of the ocean. In both cases, you’re surrounded by water, but it’s not suitable to drink unless you do something to it first. In the raft, you’d need a solar still or a reverse osmosis filter. But what’s the approach with snow?

    Since you’d be in a condition cold enough for snow, eating the stuff to stay hydrated is out of the question. Weather that’s cold enough for snow is plenty cold enough to give you hypothermia, and chilling your body core directly with snow is the last thing you’d want to do. It would also take too long to hydrate with snow. Snow is mostly frozen air. Depending on the snow crystal type and size, most snow is about 9 parts air and 1 part frozen water. This means that you’d need to eat 10 quarts of snow to have one quart of water in your belly. [ Read Full Post ]

Lucky for us, though, the evergreens don’t change much over the colder months, and they offer many handy parts and materials. Here are three of the most useful needle-bearing trees that are common through much of America. [ Read Full Post ]
