If you want to survive a bear attack, you’ll need a level head and nerves of steel. Grizzly bear attacks are on the rise in North America, and they’re expected to increase further as we keep expanding into their territory. Now more than ever, it’s important to know exactly what to do when a hike in the woods turns into a death match with a grizzly.
If you get stranded in the wilderness, you may not have access to your stockpile of food. The good thing is, when you are desperate for some much-needed calories, there are some wild options that you can find almost anywhere to eat that you may have overlooked. Our friends at the National Self-Reliance Initiative put together a list of the 7 most common things:
Paracord is both lightweight and strong. It weighs less and takes up less room than heavy-duty ropes, and can be woven together to create a stronger rope that is rot proof and sturdy. When the inner cords are taken apart, its uses multiply. Paracord has a bearing weight of 550 pounds. It was designed to stretch under a load and will stretch over time. There are many uses for this “survival rope,” but here are the ten most practical ways to use your paracord in the wilderness.
We recently added Freeze-dried Pomegranate Yogurt Bites to our collection of delicious food you will love to eat. Out of all the fruit choices in the world, why did we choose Pomegranate? The answer is very simple. It is one of the world's healthiest superfruits because of the vast health benefits that have been linked to it.
If you consistently plan the meals for your family, you likely already have an idea of what a well-balanced refrigerator and pantry should look like. However, when you are building an emergency food supply, it can feel a little like trodding on foreign territory even though picking food supplies for a well-balanced diet for your household normally comes as second nature.
When emergency situations strike, having enough food to sustain the household is one of the most valuable ways to ensure you and your family can survive. The United States Civil Defense even recommends that storing enough food and water to adequately sustain your family for at least two weeks is important.
Even if you are not a prepper, you should store food. Should you lose power for more than a few days due to an ice storm, hurricane or other natural disasters, you won’t be without food if you plan ahead.
Whether you’re looking to prepare for a storm, famine, martial law, war or other types of major disaster; or if you’re just interested in a prologued camping trip to test your bushcraft and survival skills- your first concern should be keeping yourself and anyone with you well fed.
Having a survival backpack loaded and ready at a moment's notice means all the difference between surviving and struggling to survive following a catastrophic event. Whether the disaster is a tornado, earthquake, hurricane, food shortage or even war, being self-sufficient and prepared to cope with the loss of electricity, gas, access to fresh water and shelter significantly increases your chances of making it through the first several weeks of a manmade or natural calamity.
Living safely in a crowded, often chaotic urban area with higher population densities is difficult enough without the added complication of a natural or manmade disaster. Although seasoned survivalists recommend bugging out of an urban setting as soon as possible before or immediately after a disaster or emergency situation arises, something could prevent you from departing ASAP.
