When the caveman discovered fire, it changed the way he did everything—the way he ate and hunted, and even the way he heated his drafty two-bedroom bungalow cave.
Home preppers are always looking for items that have long shelf life and serve multiple purposes. One such item every home prepper should keep a healthy supply of is honey. The rich, thick, sticky, golden goodness of honey was known in ancient times as the “nectar to the gods,” and for good reason. Today, those same benefits make honey ideal for the home prepper.
In our first installment, we discussed creating an action plan. Now we will talk about planning ahead in the event we are faced with an intruder.
Canned food is a common staple in many households across the country. Usually all you need to
You hear someone jiggling the lock of your front door.
If you have ever awakened to that sound, you know how quickly you go from peaceful sleep to panic-inducing paranoia. And that panic compounds if you have children or other family members in the house.
Whether you are a novice or beginner, when it comes to traditional outdoor sports such as shooting, knowing what equipment to buy and what to look for specifically can be confusing. For many newcomers, it can be downright intimidating at first—especially when it comes to shopping for firearms, but that does not have to be the case.
Let’s face it; we live in a generation obsessed with electronic devices. It seems like anything, and everything, requires some type of power source these days. Many of us are slaves to our cell phones or other devices, and we have unknowingly trained ourselves to stay within eyesight of an outlet. Sadly, being tethered to some sort of powercord or car adapter has become a way of life for many.
If duct tape has thousands of uses than chances are its junk drawer companion and skinny little cousin the zip-tie does as well. Two things I wish I would have invented.
The common goal of most preppers is to simply be as self sufficient as possible. This means keeping an adequate supply of necessary items in case of an emergency. The number of what-if scenarios, which can happen and constitute an emergency, are as varied as the number of items you need to be stockpiling. One of those essential items for preppers is batteries.
In the last decade, grilling food has become extremely popular thanks to improvements in barbecue equipment. It seems like everyone has a grillmaster in their family and grilling is certainly a great option for creating tasty meals. However, smoking (as in smoked food) is as equally satisfying as any other cooking method, and it is quickly gaining in popularity.
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), breast cancer is second only to lung cancer as the leading cause of cancer deaths in women. One out of every eight women who lives to be at least 85 years of age will develop breast cancer. Over two million women in the United States have been treated for, or are currently living with, breast cancer. However, there is some good news; in spite of all these discouraging statistics, breast cancer—if caught early—can be treated and many women today call themselves breast cancer survivors because of early detection. The other good news is there are organizations and activities with some traditional outdoor activities, such as fly-fishing, designed specifically for breast cancer patients.
Two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen—these three tiny particles make up one of the most vital pieces of our human existence. And while hydrogen and oxygen form water at its most molecular state, hundreds of invaders find their way into our water sources every day. “Cleaning up” water and making it safe to ingest is an extremely important task in making sure that we have potable water we need to survive.
When your body temperature begins to drop, danger can set within minutes. People often think hypothermia only happens in the wintertime, outdoors and to those who participate in outdoor activities such as hunting, camping, ice-fishing or hiking. While this group of people maybe more prone to hypothermia—simply because of the elements and activities in which they participate—nothing could be further from the truth.
Private landowners—especially farmers—have quickly realized that leasing their land can net additional income, which is certainly a boost for farmers, but not so great for the hunter. One glance at land prices and you can see it has become a land-grabbing nightmare as the price tag for hunting leases and land purchases continue to climb to record prices around the country. Adding to the sting, professionally guided hunts are quickly being priced out of reach of the average hunter.
The words preorbtial, vomeronasal and olfactory might sound like something from a science fiction movie, but they are not. They can also be challenging to say or even spell, but the greater challenge for any hunter is what these tongue twisting words actually mean.
