Survival of the fittest

Last  month we were in the mountains and on the way I decided to use my phone’s gps instead of my car’s one. The gps phone decided to show me one small alternative route, which was a forest road.

In my human naivety I said to myself : I trust the internet .Of course, we drove some kilometers even on a river and rock roads until we got totally lost.

In our adventure, we have decided to explore the place by foot and after one hour in the forest we’ve got that feeling as if somebody was watching us…like a big bear . I couldn’t actually see it, but I felt like I could hear his breath and I repeatedly looked behind and in  front of me. In my soul I could feel as if I was hunted.  After a few  minutes  we heard  some noises , it was just a car and afterwards we found out that the people inside it were also lost. They were locals and they told  us to be careful because in that forest are bears and it is dangerous to travel on unknown paths.

Nothing happened to us ( thanks God!), but if by any chance you get lost in the woods, how will you survive in the wild nature?

Our ancestors were skilled to hunting  and fishing  and those gifts are also in your DNA. Here are some basic primitive fish trapping techniques from all around the world :

If you ever find yourself travelling somewhere far away, I would recommend you having  in your  traveling gear something like survival card and some rope or maybe some fishing line. It is small and very light, you can check this site Wilderness Survival Card . It also explains you how to use it.

You can make a fishing hook  from almost everything : your clothes, cans , watches,  and you can also use animal bones or wood .

 

Watch this guy show you how to use stick hooks, honestly  it is very difficult,  but not impossible.
