How to Process Rabbit Like a Pro

  One of the things you will need to know for wilderness survival is how to gut, skin, and process rabbit for consumption. The video below shows an alternate method to traditional skinning. The method in the video below reduces the possibility of fly contamination, as the rabbit is not cut open, which exposes the […]

Entering The Iron Age: Primitive Technology

As a military trained survival instructor, and someone who’s developed skills by going out and just doing the stuff, I have immense respect for this guy.  He takes survival and the ethos of it to a whole different level.  In fact, you can’t even call what he does “survival”.  You just call it living.  Living […]

Ne Te Quaesiveris Extra

“Man is his own star; and the soul that can Render an honest and a perfect man, Commands all light, all influence, all fate; Nothing to him falls early or too late. Our acts our angels are, or good or ill, Our fatal shadows that walk by us still.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson (1841)   Ne […]

Surviving Heat Exhaustion in the Wild...

When we step out into the wilderness, we do so assuming a certain level of risk is inherent. Our civilized beings reconcile variables and weigh that risk, which is what makes our wild being desire the adventure in the back-country.

Product Review: Insulated Static V Sl...

One of the many things I learned to appreciate as a Marine was my foam sleeping pad. About 3/8 of an inch thick, and made of rubberized foam, it’s no big secret that it’s pretty useless, unless your main objective is to use all of its 24×72 dimensions to just keep your sleeping bag off […]

Knives: High Carbon Steel vs Stainles...

There’s a lot of talk in the survival community about knives. The opinions on them vary like the weather. But one thing we can all agree on is that they should be made of either high carbon, or stainless steel (unless there is something really super cool out there that’s like, the best of both…cough) […]

DIY: Wilderness Survival Tin

Survival tins, (AKA “Altoid survival tins”) are a great thing. They give you an opportunity to have a better chance for survival, should you lose access to your pack, and only have what’s in your pockets. They also give you an opportunity to get creative, and really do some real critical thinking, reasoning, and planning. […]

Wilderness Survival: Basic Med Kit

Being a first responder, one thing I am really big on is being medically prepared for a situation that may arise in the field. While we should fully comprehend that nobody will be able to be fully prepared for EVERY medical scenario in the field, we should take steps to be prepared for some of […]
