Survival skills have been around since God knows when. Even with the advent of modern technology, these survival skills proved time and time again that they are still important, essential, and relevant to outdoor enthusiasts, hunters, preppers, and even your average Joe and Jane. No, buying all that high-end survival gear does not make you a survivalist, but learning these most important survival skills will!
Survival Skills Help Us Survive. PERIOD.
So What Are These Survival Skills?
Building a Shelter
Food and Food Storage

Watch some movies about how the world will end, and they can only tell you ONE THING: that no one is ever prepared for the aftermath. For example, the aftermath of a nuclear fall-out is living/surviving/thriving with radiated and uninhabitable terrain, radiated waters, and lack of food. The aftermath of a destroyed ozone layer is living our days in an underground shelter with a barren wasteland on top of us. Learning and perhaps mastering these essential survival skills needed to survive will prepare you one way or another for the worst.
