How can I learn or develop the skills to survive in the wilderness.
such as lighting fires, tracking, hunting animals, building shelter and making weapons from using little to no modern technology and using as many materials found in the wilderness as possible.This is merely a fascination and desire to get in tough with nature
watch “survivor man”, or “Worst case Scenario” with Bear Grylls. or go to a place called Sherper’s, or REI there wilderness stores, I’m sure they would have books on this or someone could help you there. the REI employee’s really know there stuff!!!
Are there any free internet sites that would give me information on how to survive in the wild.
I would like to know how to do a lot of the stuff so if I needed to, I could survive on my own in the wilderness.
This is a very small source with advice if you end up stranded in the wild: http://www.ehow.com/how_2043712_survive-…It’s a start. A lot of the resources I’ve seen for building shelters and things like that are in books, so I recommend checking out the closest big library before you buy anything!
How to Survive in the Wilderness without supplies.
I’m writing a book and at one point the characters find themselves having to escape from a prison and into a surrounding forest. They have little to no supplies, maybe a knife and a 19th century rifle….it’s a long story…or at least I’m hoping it will be.So that said, I know just about nothing…
WaterYou’ll either have to give your characters a pot to boil water in, have them find natural springs, or freshwater. There’s also a technique used to clean water from streams and ponds. You basically dig a hole near the body of water your next to. The hole will fill up with water while sand and rocks filter all the yucky stuff out. It’ll be full of dirt and probably taste bad but will help make it safer.FoodIf they have a rifle they should be able to hunt. You could also set a snare. It’s one of the oldest animal trap methods, requires some string/rope and sticks. Just Google “animal snare” to see how it works. Scurvy is also a very real possibility. Your characters need vitamin C. They can get this from berries or pine needles. Huckleberries grow wild really well in forests. Pine needles can be boiled in water to make a kind of tea which contains up to 6x the vitamin C of orange juice.Hiding trailsIn reality it’s very hard to track someone unless it’s snowing or the ground is wet and leaves footprints. If you want your character to be covering their tracks like it’s part of the story, there’s a couple things they could do. If they set up a camp fire, have them mention they need to cover all the charred wood with dirt. You could also have it rain in the story washing away all tracks they’ve left behind. If they have blood hounds after them have them cover themselves in deer piss or something.It takes quite an imagination to write a book just use yours. I’ve given you some ideas to work with, go from there.
Tips on how to survive being in the wilderness. Or Sea. How to find food. how to hunt. How to make camp..
Doesnt hurt to know.
Hmmm, I don’t see how you would panhandle in the wilderness, as bears don’t carry a lot of pocket change. They have no pockets and if they did, you can not eat a quarter. (I suppose you could, but it wouldn’t do you much good.)I have no experience in the sea, so I can’t help you there.The wilderness, I’ve been there and done that.First you will want to purchase some items (maybe the panhandling would come in handy here)1. hachet2.sleeping bag and tent3. Books on regional edible plants, berries and mushrooms with good photo’s as the drawing can make it hard to identify plants.4. A bow is a very good option for hunting because it does not require that you keep amo on hand. But it does take skill, you can practice during the downtime in the wilderness.3. A good weather resistant rope, for snares, tethering, repairing, and hanging the kill.4. A good multi-purpose knife5. Rain Gear6. Good hiking boots7. A snake bite kit and a first aid kit8. A small sewing kit9. repair patches for your tent and sleeping bag10. a hat11. Tough durable clothing12. Iodine tablets (available at camping supply stores to make water potable.13. compact fishing pole (fish are much easier to catch, clean and eat than mammals.Will you be hiking into the wilderness or have a vehicle? If you have a vehicle I would advise taking dried goods. I know that you intend to live off the land and eat what you kill/gather BUT that’s pretty hard and you might get rather hungry living on berries. You will get used to a smaller amount of food and the hunger will wain, yet if you have the ability to pack it in, rice and beans may be a life saver (literally)Now, some places it is easier to do this than others. For example hunting game in the woodlands is much easier than the desert. The desert is really not very accomidating in part due to the obvious lack of water.And please, please do not forget about or under-estimate the power of weather. Don’t go to the Rocky Mountains in the winter and think you will survive and don’t go to the desert in the summer and think you won’t loose your mind, because you will.I recommend (year round) climates in the south east such as the Ozark Mountains in Arkansas, and certainlty parts of California are inhabbitable year round.Good luck, have fun, be safe and smart and don’t ignore warning signs of any kind. This is a wonderful, but RAW existance.
For the outdoor people, any good books on how to survive in the wilderness. For example what you can eat.
I live in Cal. and I am always doing something outside, in the mounatains, and so on. I love being outdoors, but I do take risks…I know there are some really cool books and websites with info, but I always like to hear what other people have found. I like old books too.
