Those big nasty bears are real life monsters. They are something to behold in the wild and when you cross paths with them you better have a plan and some training. One wrong move with the wrong bear can mean a long and painful end. I know that sounds scary but for about 3 people a year its reality. Now, bears do not pose any real threat in comparison to things we use everyday like cars but when you step into their world, you better have some respect.
To understand this, you need to be able to set up camp properly. Bear proofing your camp is not as hard as it sounds. In fact, many just opt for hanging food and keeping it away from their sleeping areas. That’s the best method. Still, you can add other levels of deterrents, as well. Are you prepared to take that on?
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
