light, and warmth, we need a fire. What would you do if you don’t have any
access to the lighter or the matches? Well, this is what primitive skills are
about. You need to learn to start a fire from steel and flint, and some other
flame is not enough to start a fire, you need fuel. You will need good tinder
to get the process going. If you find the right kindling you can get started,
but if you find the dry, it can go through the night. You should look for dead
trees and branches.
go back to the era where the only way to get access to food was fishing,
hunting, and foraging. Of course, you are not doing it right now as you have
got the food but you need to learn these ways.
hunting, you will need a bow and arrow, gun, spear, gun, or anything else that
works for the type of animal you are hunting. A good hunter kills its prey with
respect and doesn’t practice cruelty. For fishing, you can pursue cat-net
fishing, fish trapping, spearfishing, and fishing pole. Foraging depends on
your location. You need to know what vegetation is available in your area and
how you can keep it coming.

know how to do outdoor cooking. If you know how to cook, it doesn’t mean you
have a complete understanding of how long should you keep food on the fire to
get it cooked. Cooking with an open flame is very different from cooking on a
stovetop. You need to learn how to roast, make soup, bake, and a lot more on
the open flame if you want to master outdoor cooking.
and Processing Your Food

your food, and hunt on your own. While you might do that, you also need to
learn about clean butchering the food. As important it is to hunt the food and
provide it to your family, it is equally important to keep it clean and provide
them the fresh and neat food.
store a large amount of food in your refrigerator but what if you don’t have
any? Will you let go of the food that you cultivated, hunted, or found with so
much effort? Well, there are other methods. You can learn how to keep your meat
fresh and other food products as they are without the use of refrigerators.
you are in the middle of nowhere and you have to provide shelter to your
family? Can you make a shelter from your surroundings? Well, there are ways
through the use of the right tree sticks and other material to construct the shelter
for yourself and the family in the time of need.
