Finding yourself alone in the wild is a very difficult thing to grasp on, but here’s what you need to do.
First of all don’t panic and avoid questions like: why me? Your mental health is crucial in this situation, and you should focus more on the How to… get food, water, make a shelter…
Next thing to think about is food/water – Water is more important, you can survive without food for a couple of days, even weeks however food is good for your mental and emotional health.
– Depending on your location you should think of what sources of meat you can get your hands on. The best advice here is to build a trap.
Here’s how to build a rabbit trap:
Building a trap is way better than trying to build a spear and hunt. Hunting requires allot of energy – and you must save it.
If you are close to a river, this can be a huge advantage. Fish is a very good source of proteins and fat and you can use a couple of simple fishing techniques . You can either use one of these methods: line, hook, spear, trap. A simple tip is try to observe the fish behaviour and se e where he rests and what he eats. Adapt your fishing techniques to this.
Insects and bugs:
In order to survive you will need proteins and fat and insects and bugs have both. I know it’s a huge mental barrier but you have to cross it and just do it.
Plants are by far the easiest way to get nutrients into your body, but unfortunately they are not very rich in proteins or fat so you will have to eat allot of them. Depending on your location you should be able to have around some plants that can be eaten. But be very careful here, some plants are poisonous, it’s best to learn more about plants.
