Survival Hunting Kit

Survival Hunting Kit

A basic kit for hunting survival items meant to increase the options and probability of procuring meat in a survival scenario. This kit can be broken down into smaller elements to accommodate specific environments. Every day or easily found items can be what makes the difference in survival. What is more; the every day items are cheap and replaceable compared to expensive items. Improvisation using some basic equipment and simple techniques often produce more than complicated or manufactured items. This kit contains possible items for small kits for the survivalist. Additions can always be made depending on the situation. Items:

Snare Wire
Cargo Tape
Zip Ties
fishing line
Sling Shot and Pocket
Treble hooks

    Great video. Are the corks real cork or the newer plastic type? Can I use either type?

  2. ourtechwriter on June 21, 2021 at 7:34 pm

    Compact. Well thought out.

  3. Scott Santos on June 21, 2021 at 7:36 pm

    Great video and kit… picked up several new ideas. Thanks

  4. Ian Edwards on June 21, 2021 at 7:40 pm

    Dude you’re a genius

  5. Red River on June 21, 2021 at 7:42 pm

    Great ideas man. Love the vid. Excellent work. Earned a sub and a like from me. Your content is right up my alley….. Thanks.

  6. Jaybird196 on June 21, 2021 at 7:43 pm

    The metal parts of mouse and rat traps, might make a good addition.

    Btw, I like, that trapping and fishing elements were included, in this kit.

  7. Randy Harper on June 21, 2021 at 7:43 pm

    Audio and editing perfect!
    Great teaching.

  8. Michael Rothwell on June 21, 2021 at 7:43 pm

    I carry a couple of rat traps as well as a gill net

  9. Roy Phelps on June 21, 2021 at 7:45 pm

    When i was very young , granny made me a burlap potato sack into a cross body bag , grandpa, cut down old tobacco tins , to store my fishing hooks in , the big 1 pound tobacco cans kept matches and what i needed to keep dry , carried a small can of carbide ,for my carbide lights ,22 ammo shorts longs ,long rifle, in different sizes cut down tobacco tins . Dad made me a cut down stalk for the 22 I carried, grandpa measured my arms and made me a handle for my double bit axe , I stayed in the woods more than most grown-ups did . Ate what I cought and killed . Sometimes id have to stash my game near a road , and call for help something else id carry was , shelled dry corn.

    what about a fire kit? to cook/boil water an heat

  11. Joshua Lamb on June 21, 2021 at 7:47 pm

    Thanks,,,,,, Joshua

  12. David Somerset on June 21, 2021 at 7:48 pm

    Where do you get tin foil….. or do you really mean aluminum foil?

  13. David Nachbaur on June 21, 2021 at 7:50 pm

    Great idea for the hook and misc. Storage with the tape

  14. Jim Hale on June 21, 2021 at 7:52 pm

    mic sounds great. like the kit!

  15. Munny Shot on June 21, 2021 at 7:54 pm

    more great info, thanks

  16. Kelly Moulton on June 21, 2021 at 7:55 pm

    Cork charcoal (black only) can also be rubbed into wounds to help prevent infection. Not talking about deep eviscerated injuries but more superficial & even fairly deep into muscle wounds without obvious major blood vessel involvement.
    Think linear barbed wire lacerations & similar.
    Great vid presentation again!
    Thank you, as always.

  17. Richard Shawver on June 21, 2021 at 7:55 pm

    Surgical rubber tubing.
    About 5 or 6 feet. Many uses. Spring for traps. Rubber for the Ron Hood Delbow. As a replacement for initial sling shot power bands. And since it is a tube a fire blow pipe. No butt in the air and face in the dirt and a concentrated stream of air to encouraging your fire.
    Saw blade
    I Saw a kit builder wrap a 24” bow saw blade inside an Altoid kit. Your pot kit would hold one nicely. Put some kind of edge guard on it. It could cut branches to form a bow saw frame for more serious cutting.

  18. Joe Day on June 21, 2021 at 7:55 pm

    Wow. Your information came at a level I’ve not seen before. Really loved it. Time to go upgrade my kit!

  19. Brad Denty on June 21, 2021 at 7:56 pm

    Seems like we might be reading the same book.

  20. Dave Agar on June 21, 2021 at 7:56 pm

    You are putting out great vids with even better content. Great Job!

  21. Jaybird196 on June 21, 2021 at 7:57 pm

    I much approve, of the MRE PB. Good emergency food source, and various critters love it. Only thing is, keeping it away from them, until intended use. Nobody wants live squirrels chewing holes in their survival gear.

  22. Sparrow Flying on June 21, 2021 at 7:58 pm

    What is the brand of the knife/spear in the thumbnail?

  23. canecorsodude on June 21, 2021 at 7:59 pm

    Just stumbled upon your channel and I love it!

  24. Richard Shawver on June 21, 2021 at 8:02 pm

    The Idea of using light gauge picture wire never occurred to me. Good Especially in Smaller or Micro Kits. With wire this thin you don’t need to cut. Flex a few times and metal fatigue will break it. Nice and compact but is it strong enough. Squirrels and smaller maybe it’s enough. Rabbits it would be close. Anything that is bigger. Doubtful
    I like Steel fishing leaders. Most premade ones have a swivel at one end to use as a anchor line tie off. Because of the ability to rotate there is less damage from the games struggles and may be used more than once. Have a snap at the other to clip around the wire as the slider. It might be a bit large to put in the sewing kit, but not the hunting kit.
    The reason old time kits used brass wire. It is soft enough to manipulate with just the fingers as this was before Multi-tools.
    Just remember when trapping you will need at least a dozen set to have a reasonable chance of success. Single set just not good enough.

  25. Brad Denty on June 21, 2021 at 8:03 pm

    Nice! Im digging ur use of tape to stash extra gear

  26. 0351nick on June 21, 2021 at 8:04 pm

    Great kit. With the nails you might put a couple 12penny ones in there they are just a little longer and would make better prongs on a jig or spear.

  27. Richard Shawver on June 21, 2021 at 8:07 pm

    More on fishing
    You fish hook sachets are ideal for in pocket use. You need the extra protection from the points. When inside a kit it is not as necessary. In that case you could with Ron Hood’s idea. Place the hooks at right angles to the edges of masking tape. It can be then wrapped around objects or rolled up. I have taken the concept another step. While it is true small hooks can catch big fish it is better to use appropriate size for the fish at your location. To accomplish this I start with the largest hook chosen. The nest progressively smaller hooks inside.
    Especially in smaller kits you are talking about maybe a half dozen small split shot sinkers. Beyond that both the Weight and bulk become intolerable. A smaller H can be wrapped with yards of magnet wire for the same amount of weight. The size is in the 32 to 36 gauge range. With this dozens of sinkers can be manufactured on site from stones. Stones to big, a little judicious banging between larger rocks you can make the size needed. Take the selected stone in the center of a short piece of wire. Bring the two lengths up both side and twist at the top1/2 to a twist and a half turns. Reverse direction splitting the difference between the first two and twist again. You now have a a four sided cage holding the weight. With the tag ends loop in opposite directions forming a double eye for attaching the fishing line twist once more. Before trimming the wire ends they can be slipped under the cage wires for a more solid anchor tie. You could form the sinker cage with any fine cordage. The problem with most is they are slippery. Tying the necessary knots is fiddly and frustrating. The inherent stiffness if the magnet wire while slight allows twisting rather than tying. This is much simpler and quicker.
    These weights can be used for gill nets, cast nets and trotlines. I have actually woven a four foot cast net for my BOB level kit. I used Spiderwire line for strength and lightness. It packs to about the size of a deck of cards.
    I prefer the new super lines such as spiderwire or one of the others. The same size as common 10 pound test but is in the 50 to 60 pound range. Light tackle is fine for sport fishing. The lost because of a broken line means better luck next time. During a survival situation it means hunger.

    Great vid..

  29. Robert Lang on June 21, 2021 at 8:09 pm

    My old kit had several guitar strings for snares. There is a ‘grommet’ at one end that can be made into the loop. Like the way you carry your fish hooks. I usually added some fly fishing flies (good for perch where I live).

  30. Mohd Shahnawaz on June 21, 2021 at 8:10 pm

    what tape di dyou use for improvised satchet?

  31. Waggtech on June 21, 2021 at 8:11 pm

    That 550 jig is a neat idea! Going to have to give it a try!

  32. Dave Hart on June 21, 2021 at 8:11 pm

    Id give it a thumbs up, but wondering whats up with the thumb

  33. Apprentice Gilligan on June 21, 2021 at 8:12 pm

    Exceptional video. I like the 100 mile an hour tape around razor blades and hooks.

  34. Maryanne Bishop-Brown on June 21, 2021 at 8:14 pm

    Really enjoyed this info. Sounds great.

  35. Thomas Dunn on June 21, 2021 at 8:15 pm

    Really like the kit. The slingshot tubing could also be used as a set line for unattended fishing

  36. Jaybird196 on June 21, 2021 at 8:17 pm

    Another addition: nylon pantyhose/leggings. Can be used to make fishing traps, and might be useful for mosquito netting, and protection while harvesting honey from bees nests.

  37. Thomas S. on June 21, 2021 at 8:18 pm

    I definitely would like to see the sling shot construction video.

  38. John reed on June 21, 2021 at 8:19 pm

    Great info brother

  39. Kevin D on June 21, 2021 at 8:19 pm

    There is something missing. Either a piece of briteish cloth which you can turn into bait among other things, or a ziplock. Both are useful, but serve as a liner for this- pull the kit items out and keep them together when you’re using the mess kit as a kit. I know you want it as a hunting kit, but spare bic is like a dyeing rich uncle- always welcome on your door step, particularly when you least expect it.

  40. morpheoist on June 21, 2021 at 8:22 pm

    Also can put inside some bearings for slingshot…you can use rocks but bearings are ready to use and most precise….I also find triple hooks very useful. I was just thinking about it when you showed it in the video. a size larger than those connected to a steel wire are useful for bodytraps of wild game or big fish. I live on a small island off the grid and use them for bluefish …

  41. SgtBooker44 on June 21, 2021 at 8:23 pm

    You could add a half dozen small 00 Buck sized ball bearings etc for slingshot ammo. Mic was fine. Thanks sir?

  42. Jaybird196 on June 21, 2021 at 8:23 pm

    The gear sachets are cool 🙂 . I may steal that ;)….

  43. Jaybird196 on June 21, 2021 at 8:23 pm

    To go with the treble hook trap, might I suggest the gorge hook? They can used to catch fish, and birds on land. Cruel, but effective.

  44. Robert Lang on June 21, 2021 at 8:25 pm

    Try a title like “Catching Food” or “How to snare game and catch fish.”

  45. Honey Badger Boondocking on June 21, 2021 at 8:26 pm

    Sweet kit.

  46. Richard Shawver on June 21, 2021 at 8:26 pm

    Treble hook storage
    Many relatively small products come in those frustrating plastic packs. This is then simply trashed. What a waste. I developed a use for some in my own fishing kit for items such items as treble hooks and lures. The tube can be made to any size within the limits of the back panel of the largest packet you have. If you absolutely have a need a larger tube you would need to purchase a sheet of similar plastic. Roll the plastic into a tube and glue the edge. Then glue a circle of the same stuff to one end. Trim the circle flush after the glue is set. Make a short tube that is a snug fit to the tube as a cap for the open end. Made snug enough it should be reasonable water resistant container. Great storage for trebe hooks, small screw eyes and screw in L bracket for rod construction.
    A second use it could be cut into an H Shape. While it would hold as much line as your cardboard one it would be more compact and lighter.
    Folded and taped it can act as an edge protector. Similar to the cardboard sheaths manufactures ship knives in.
    With judicious application of heat plastic can be folded into boxes.
    The applications are only limited by imagination.

    How i remember how to say cache (a bundle of things) is because it is a stash, so you say it that way, cash the e is silent. Cache’ meaning they have a certain style is pronounced (cash shay). To sashay means to swing your butt from side to side as you walk. You can blame it on my aunt who beat into my head she would not tolerate sloppy thinking or talking. Your style makes it easy to understand the material keep up the good work.

  48. Don Sawyers on June 21, 2021 at 8:30 pm

    what about matches or lighter
