Title: Survival Basics: Harvest Wild Meat Simple Traps and Snares: (Ultimate Survival Guide, Survival Food) (Wilderness Survival Guide, Survival Craft)

Learning to survive outdoors is an important skill. You may find yourself stranded in the woods after a natural disaster, or lost after a hiking, fishing or camping excursion. Do you have what it takes to survive? Because you can survive for weeks without eating, many students tend to focus on other survival techniques such as building a shelter or purifying water. Although these are vitally important, going without food can have an adverse affect on your mental health and overall well-being. Consequently, it is important to know how to find, catch and cook wild animals to maintain your strength and energy. With this book, you will learn all of the basics of finding, catching and preparing food in emergency situations. That is without the use of modern hunting tools like guns and fishing poles. Some topics covered will include: Where to Look for Food Safe and Unsafe Animals for Eating Setting Small Game Snares Bird Catching Catching Reptiles and Snakes Primitive Fishing Making Weapons for Hunting Cooking Methods Including Drying and Smoking Meats Food Storage Preparation can mean the difference between surviving or not surviving in the wilderness. This book will equip you with the knowledge, skills and confidence you’ll need to keep from starving while you wait for someone to come and rescue you.
