Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Well-known outdoor expert Dave Canterbury offers basic techniques and essential information for primitive wilderness survival in this new heavy-duty pocket guide series from Waterford Press. Perfect for throwing into an overnight pack or brushing up on skills before an expedition, these waterproof, rip-proof guides can be used on their own or in conjunction with one another, similar to the method used in Canterburys unprecedented Pathfinder System. Covering everything from what to include in a survival kit and improvised tracking techniques to signaling for rescue and building shelter, this collection is ideal for outdoor adventurers of any skill level and provides indispensable wilderness information for all situations.

 

Proper baiting, target areas, signpost setting, and simple trap triggers are a few of the methods outlined in this how-to guide. Straightforward instruction and simple trap sets will ensure that the many snares included can be set with a minimal expenditure of energy for maximum success.

Synopsis:

The ability to trap food could be a critical factor in keeping you alive in a survival situation. Knowing the types of species that can be found in the area, having a good understanding of their behaviors, knowing which traps will work on which animals and knowing how to build them are the keys to success. This waterproof guide covers trapping basics including targeting prey areas, setting sign posts, proper baiting, and how to create effective traps using basic knots and simple triggers. Developed in collaboration with noted survival expert and master woodsman Dave Canterbury, this is one of a 10-part series on survival skills. Made in the USA.
