A - FLAP POCKET: Maps, fire permit, notebook, pen, fishing license, identification, guide book.
E - LOWER COMPARTMENT: Cap, underwear, trousers, windbreaker, wool shirt or down jacket, socks, shirts, gloves, swim suit, bandanna, food (if not in D). CARRY ON YOUR PERSON: Compass, pocket knife, Medic Alert bracelet or pendant (if used), waterproof matches.
PACK ITEMS IN SMALL STUFF BAGS: For easy access to your gear, pack all your gear in small stuff bags then pack the backpack. The Zone Method of packing a backpack can make the difference between drudgery and enjoyment during the time spent on the trail. ZONE C: The area farthest away from the body's center of gravity should be filled with the lightest equipment.
There is also a benefit in placing the densest weight high in the pack as it will be more directly over the center of gravity.
Water purification: As a minimum boil water or add 1 iodine tablet per instructions on tablet bottle. Stepping backward with the left foot and crouching slightly to slant the right thigh, drag or lift the frame to rest on the thigh. Steadying the frame with the left hand, and holding the upper part of the right shoulder strap, put the right arm under the shoulder strap. Lifting the frame with your right hand, swing your elbow back to slide the frame around on your back. Buckle the hip belt in place and adjust the shoulder straps to hold the frame high on your back. A good pack frame will have welded construction Well padded hip belt that will tighten snugly just above his hips. The shoulder straps should be attached to the frame high enough above the shoulder that the straps come down from the frame to the front of the shoulder.
Good quality sleeping bag and tent straps should also be bought to securely fasten the bag and tent to the pack. Bungee or elastic cords should not be used to fasten items to the exterior of the pack because these allow the load to shift and bounce around. NOTE: When a backpack is fully loaded with all necessary gear and equipment it should not weigh more than 20% to 25% of the total body weight of the person who is carrying the pack.
An overloaded, too heavy pack will lead to quick fatigue, possible physical injury, and for certain an unpleasant backpacking experience. SUGGESTION: Buy a pack that fits now and sell it to a smaller scout when your son outgrows it. A good bag will be made with offset or slant layer construction which will not be sewn all the way through the inner and outer covering.
These types of Bags a very expensive but last forever, be careful choosing the weight, size packed, and fill of the bag. A closed cell foam sleeping pad is a must for winter camping, since it insulates you from the cold earth. I do however, use a REI Marino Wool™ liner, it's really small, light and I hate sleeping on nylon.
Hiking boots should always be worn with sock liners (polypropylene or silk) and wool hiking socks. Make sure that you wear hiking sock liners and wool hiking socks when you go to try boots on in the store.
The Ontario Knife Co Kukri is an excellent chopper that is made from 1095 carbon steel — right here in the USA.
In the diagram above, the line is tied to a tree, but sometimes people will bury a PVC pipe in the mud and tie the line to the PVC pipe to make everything as hidden as possible. Depending on the area you live, bank lines can draw up many different kinds of fish—most prominently catfish in the south. If you aren’t catching anything, the fish either aren’t there or they do not like the bait. In conclusion, a survivalist scenario requires you to cover all your bases because you never know what will happen.
The Prepared Prepper's Cookbook: Over 170 Pages of Food Storage Tips, and Recipes From Preppers All Over America! Trotlines or banklines are not illegal in any state some do require names and similar identifiers. I also enjoyed the article, I wish our area had more waterways where this information would be more useful. During a TEOTWAWKI event, you will need to find ways to harvest your calories in the most efficient way, using as few as possible. Many people up here are under the impression that they will hunt and fish their way out of it. Many a time I could have harvested several deer at one time but for the restrictions of having sufficient tags. I believe unconventional methods will help during a Collapse but everyone and their uncle will be banging away at the available critters. Another technique we used in survival school in Panama and Northern California was with our pack hammock in conjunction with rocks and limbs formin a channel the fish would flow into the net and we had a line attached to bring it up and in.
Seen Asians up on a camping trip with long limbs slapping the water knocking fish out and the kids going into pick the up. A technique I saw in Africa was with woven baskets on channels they would dam up and the base of the basket is thatched with small openings were water flows through and the fish channel in and the scoop them up and out onto large baskets.


When it comes to TEOTWAKI, ditch the milk jugs and attach your trotlines to pieces of tree trunk, large branches, etc.
Clone cold assault troopers were a specialized division of clone troopers within the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars, equipped with modified armor and equipment to withstand the harsh climates of arctic planets. As the name indicates, cold assault troopers were specially trained for battle and survival in extremely cold regions. Clone snowtroopers under Commander Mag were deployed on the icy world of Orto Plutonia, where they were tasked with testing subzero gear such as the Freeco bike. The armor of clone cold assault troopers is similar in appearance to Imperial snowtrooper armor, mostly the chest plate and kama and the Clone flame trooper except white. Don't buy just for camping if you ever plan on backpacking, camping equipment is no good on a backpack trip, but backpacking equipment is perfectly fine for a camp out. However, the quality usually is much, much better and you can have it a lifetime if taken care of properly. Plastic zip lock bags make excellent small and medium stuff bags especially to keep items dry.
However, the following are a few recommendations which have proven to be easy and safe for both pack and packer. While the frame is held high and far to the left, put the left arm through the shoulder strap and pull the strap into place.
The belt should be tight enough to support the pack on the belt when loaded with 25 to 30 lbs.
Also the rated degrees is VERY important, you can supplement bags with extra blankets on camp outs or double up the bags when it gets real cold.
These pads weigh more than a foam pad and are not recommended for new scouts who need to conserve weight. Before wearing boots on a hike the boots should be worn around the house for several days to break them in properly. This knife is a workhorse that will perform well around any camp clearing brush and chopping wood for the fire.
For those that do not know about trot lines, they are a way to fish without being present watching the pole.
If you have the time and live in an area where fishing would be important in a survivalist situation, I suggest making an emergency trotline ahead of time. People commonly drop off these fishing rigs in the morning and pick them up at night or the next day, thus you can be off getting other things done while the trotlines do the fishing for you. If you were to survive by yourself hiding the bank line isn’t too much of an issue, but if there was a survivalist situation where many people were looking for food to steal, hiding your bank line is a must.
Experiment with some different baits on the line to conclude if they like one bait or another.
However, that was in another country under exigent circumstances – we was out of C-rations and very hungry.
I would use my ultralight tackle and the guys from Louisiana would laugh and break out the seine. They had a ser distance between each line and with rings attached with a pull line tether sort of like a flag pole so they could be pulled in and set back out.
We fished a flooded river in ’93 for bait we were using little bitty blue gills we seined from a pond.
Their specialized armor was specifically designed for protection to the wearer in extremely low temperatures and to allow for effective operations within this environment. The sleeping bag can be stuffed in the bottom toward Zone C or strapped to the bottom of the pack.
Before following the suggestions outlined, start with a realistic weight, by loading the pack as if you were going on a hike. With practice a loaded frame can be put on or taken off with ease and without injury or damage to the packer or the frame. It should be fitted with a rain fly which comes almost to the ground, otherwise rain can blow under the fly.
I use a LightSabre Bivy by Black Diamond™ This is my tent, it gives me the benefit of sleeping under the stars, removes the claustrophobia associated with most bivy's, is really breathable on hot nights and when the seams are sealed it's water proof. They take up very little space and weigh next to nothing, but can be a fair amount of labor upfront to get it correctly setup. Keep in mind, however, that depending on the presentation, many trot lines and bank lines end up getting stolen by other anglers. If they aren’t taking any of the baits the fish probably aren’t around—move the bank line to another safe location. While bank lining can be fairly easily done with the right supplies, it doesn’t hurt to have things sorted out ahead of time.
I would add a couple wire or bottle traps for bait (and eating if you don’t catch anything bigger). I have used a weeding hoe to pull a limb back to the bank to tie a line on then drag it back to check and retrieve our turtle. One sweep through the pond or tank with the seine and it was fish fry time for the whole rig. Then I explained that we had burned hundred’s more calories than the little lizard was going to supply us. However, when a pack is placed on the back, the body leans forward to bring the pack's center of gravity directly over the ankles. Free standing tents work best for the new scouts since they can be easily moved after set up and they can be cleaned out by lifting up and shaking them out.


The friction of the foot moving inside the boot will occur between the two pair of socks not between layers of the skin, which causes blisters.
The water anchor can be a rock or branch, make sure the anchor isn’t too small or too large—you will need to throw it out as far as you can in order for this setup to work well.
If you don’t know where to put the trot line in the first place, find a place that has some deep water and looks like an “active” area.
Depending on your situation, it may even be worth it to stake out some areas ahead of time to figure the best or most hidden places to put out the bank line.
Nobody traps because the no fur crowd killed the hide market years ago but the rats are not bad eating especially when they get fat on field corn. Upon doing autopsies of the fish we caught, we found they were stuffed full of nightcrawlers.
Consequently, it is advantageous to keep the pack's center of gravity as close to your back as possible to prevent unnecessary forward lean.
My Tent, Sleeping Bag and Sleeping Pad weigh less than 4 lbs together which is what a normal backpacking tent weights by itself. The cordura boots are lighter in weight but are not waterproof unless you choose a pair with Gor-Tex, which greatly increases the price. There are many custom things that can be done to a trotline, but at bare minimum you only need line, knot-making skills, swivels, and hooks.
By active, I mean an area that has a fair amount of wildlife around—birds, bugs, frogs, minnows, usually when there are these organisms around, the larger fish are never far away. In terms of saving calories and remaining efficient with time, bank lines represent one of the most efficient survivalist strategies out there.
Down filled sleeping bags loose up to 90% of their thermal properties were a Synthetic filled sleeping bag retains up to 85% of its thermal properties. A coated nylon style, properly sized for the wearer to maximize protection without dragging the ground will last for many years. This is an extra-small Exped dry bag containing toilet paper, wet wipes, alcohol hand-gel and a cigarette lighter.13.
There are some fantastic lightweight waterproofs on the market these days, primarily aimed at hill-walking and mountaineering.
Even in the woods a hat to keep the sun off your head on hot days makes a big difference to how clearly you can think and how tired you become.
A head-torch is less critical in the summer months, when the nights are short, than earlier or later in the year. The Silva Ranger 15TDCL (Silva have since changed the name to Silva Expedition 15TDCL) is the compass I use. A notebook is always useful for keeping notes of important information, keeping a diary, making sketches, etc.31. Very similar to my own set-up, I’ve got a heap of kit in my front room that I piled up before work this morning ready for a quick turn around before heading off to the woods tonight. I’m well aware that this is nothing like my lightest set-up but horses-for-courses is the key. I find that there is a core of essential stuff, if you are going to be comfortable, to which optional extras are added depending on your reason for being out.
I find the most difficult part is getting the food weight and volume down, especially if I’m going to be off the beaten track for some time.
I also keep a small amount of gun oil in a tiny hotel sample shampoo bottle to keep the rust at bay ?? great article as usual Paul ??Reply Craig FordhamJust remembered..
For keeping the Iphone etc charged I bought a small rechargeable powerpack made my Anker from Amazon. Cost about ?20 and is enough to keep my Iphone 5 topped up for a week if I’m fairly careful with the useage.
The file used to take care for the rakers is small enough to be carried around yet long enough for serious work. I love my ventile smock and when in the forest I wear it in preference over my recon jacket, it just feels so comfortable and in winter I have found it performs much better than Gore-Tex.Reply JamesThanks for sharing your kit with us. I, myself, was going to submit a simple comment that I also include a hammock and that DD Hammocks make very good and affordable ones. But I couldn’t leave it there.So, if bushcraft is about kit, then does it deliver as a strategy?
Because, I think, it often leads to people carrying more kit and heavier kit than they need. Some of this kit has been used on ultra long distance treks, where it has to be tough.Let me give a couple of examples. A tarp, hammock, and bivi bag is always going to be a heavier combination than the latest one man tent designs. And, if you want to stick with tarps, then Cuben fibre models are much lighter (and more expensive) than the ones most bushcrafters use.Another example. Justification for routinely carrying three or more blades (knife, saw, axe, multitool etc)?
