As the weather cools and hunting season approaches, more and more of us will be spending more time outdoors. This often means more people venturing further off the beaten path looking for that perfect view of the changing leaves or tracking down that trophy buck. Whatever the reason, there is always a chance for things to go wrong.
You don’t have to be Bear Grylls or be training for the next season of “Survivor” to get into a situation where you need some basic survival skills. In the outdoors we are just one wrong step from being in a situation that can go from bad to worse in a real hurry.
No one likes to think about being stuck or lost in the wilderness overnight or even longer. Each year we hear dozens of stories of hunters, hikers, or even children getting lost in the woods for days on end.
