If you spend time in the woods, it’s good to have some basic skills at your disposal to help you find shelter, start a fire and find food and water. (It also helps to know how to find your way back to a trail.)
Even if you never get lost, these kinds of skills are just cool to know.
For instance, if you’re deep in the woods and get lost for longer than a couple days — and you don’t feel like eating insects — do you know how to trap a small game animal?
This video shows a few ways to rig a trap. They assume you have some things on hand, like rope or paracord and a knife to cut notches into wood. One uses a plastic bottle for a funnel fish trap.
