As we all know, the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution gives citizens the right to bear arms. However, in today’s world where a few bad people with guns have made national news, anti-Second Amendment activists are coming out of the woodwork. It seems like every day there is new legislation proposed to restrict the right of law-abiding citizens who want to protect themselves, hunt, or simply enjoy target shooting. Thanks to them, you will learn today about gun sanctuaries.
If you love the great outdoors, if you hike or if you simply ride a trail bike, you’re at risk for a potentially fatal bear encounter. While some people fear the encounter with a grizzly bear, I feel that black bears which are more numerous than grizzlies are being overlooked. They are a serious threat to life and how you react to bear encounters can make a real difference to your longevity.

A lot of people are waiting on standby right now as hurricane Florence is headed towards their homes. They have the cars packed with all sorts of stuff and they are waiting for an evacuation order. We evacuated a few days ago since we already went through a similar experience when Hurricane Irma hit our property in the Florida Keys.

As a prepper, I always knew that bugging in is not an option for all of us. No matter how well you prepare and how many stuff you stockpile, there’s always the unknown factor you have to deal with. You may be lucky enough to ride the storm in the comfort of your own home, or you may be forced to evacuate. For most people that means heading for the hills or into the woods and those journeys won’t be possible without proper planning.
Primitive trapping is one of the skills that helped humans survive and thrive in austere environments. This is a topic of interest for preppers, and it takes years of practice to become a self-reliant trapper. One of the challenges of trapping animals is learning how to look for and identify an animal sign. If you are new to trapping animals here is what you need to know.
You’ve seen in movies how the hero stranded on a remote coastal shoreline has to improvise in order to survive. While accidents are a common occurrence in the unfamiliar environment, our hero will cut himself against the edge of a sharp stone to bring more drama to the whole movie. But fear not, the deep bleeding wound covered in sand and grit from the fall will soon be cleaned with seawater. Preventing wound infection using saltwater may work, but there’s much more to it than what the movie script is showing you.
The 1960s were a watershed moment in the history of American higher education because this was the decade Cultural Marxism got its grubby hands on our universities. Students all over America had their minds poisoned by Communist political organizations.

Preppers are people who are looking to ensure that they are prepared for emergencies that could see normal life interrupted. For example, food shortages, power outages, a lack of clean water, even the lack of rule of law. It can mean that they must survive on whatever materials, food, tools and equipment they have on hand. Therefore, a key strategy is to ensure they are in possession of the most valuable things in such a scenario.
Some people have a real phobia when it comes to exploring the great outdoors. Rather than fearing the dangerous animals that might ruin their experience, they fear something else. They are afraid of getting sick, and they believe that all those nasty bugs and bacteria living in the woods will get them. After years of traveling through the backwoods, I believe it’s time we debunk these wilderness hygiene myths.
As a Prepper, you have surely sat back over an evening cup of coffee and contemplated certain shtf. We have witnessed over the past few years just how quickly one event can cultivate a series of events, typically not of good nature. If and when civil unrest breaks out, the best preparation you can have is a good plan of action against gangs, mobs and riots.
I’ve been a shooter for more than two decades now. At first, I started this job to meet my financial needs. And, in this manner given the advantages of moving my own, it has become my passion.
