Two Survival Skills You Must Have

Becoming a prepper is a commitment that many people tend to underestimate. They think that the only thing to it is simply building up a stockpile of food, ammunition, and other essential items and calling it a day. The truth is that if you become a prepper and don’t devote a significant amount of time to developing important and useful skills then you might as well quit while you are ahead. Here are two of the most important skills that you can develop as a prepper and why they are so absolutely vital.

Proper Fire Building

If you were to put together a list of the single most important discoveries in human history you would very quickly find fire in at least the top three. Fire is arguably the reason why human beings were able to ascend to the top of the food chain and become the dominant species on the planet. You do not need to know how to start a fire with only a couple of sticks (although that can certainly be a great skill). You simply need to know what wood to use and how to arrange it to get the fire to last longer. You don’t necessarily need the best fire starter, but you definitely need the best fire starting methods.

Weapon Handling

Nobody likes to think about the possibility of there being in a situation where you have to defend yourself. However, one of the realities of being placed into a survival situation is that you may have to defend yourself from people who are hostile or from animals. It is also important to know how to handle a weapon so that you can hunt for food if the need arises. You can learn more about survival weaponry at: patriotscloset.com
