Fires are not just for warmth, although warmth is a necessity in winter conditions. Fires can help keep predators away, cook meals, boil water and provide comfort in a stressful situation. In normal life situations this can seem like a less important skill to have mastered, but in a wilderness situations this is a crucial skill that is needed to stay alive.
Knowing how to build shelter from whatever materials may be at hand can help you keep dry and warm in wet, cold conditions. Tree branches, grasses and man made materials can be used to build a cozy shelter to keep you out of the elements.
Being able to procure food is essential to survival if you are unable to reach standard supplies. Learn to set snares, build traps, fish with various lines and methods and hunt to ensure you can stay nourished in a survival situation.
In addition to hunting, foraging is a critical survival skill. Invest in a book about edible plants local to your region or find a mentor to show you what plants are safe.
