Preppers often come up with a lot of excuses as to why they can’t acquire new survival skills. Reasons like “too little time,” “not enough money,” and being “too far away from a practice area” can deter preppers and keep them stuck in a space of inactivity.
Luckily there are many survival skills you can learn from the comfort of your own home. And with the help of the internet and library books, it’s never been easier (or cheaper) to learn some new survival skills in your spare time.
It’s easy to get ready for a crisis once you’ve begun mastering these…
5 Survival Skills You Can Practice At Home
Remember how knot tying is such an important survival skill? Well, you can use it to your advantage while fashioning fishing nets.
These nets can work wonders for catching fish and other edible sea creatures. If you’re lucky enough to be by a body of water when SHTF, this skill will seriously come in handy!
If not, no worries. You can still use this net to hold survival gear, or you can even fashion a hammock to relax in after a hard day’s work.
Trapping is an enormously useful skill in an emergency situation. These traps allow you to capture small animals you can eat to prevent starvation. Plus oftentimes you can set numerous traps at once, and then come back to find your next meal(s) waiting for you.
Now although it’s useful to practice this skill in the great outdoors, you can still do plenty of the prep work inside your home. Grab the materials you’ll need, and then practice setting up/activating the traps. This way when you get outside you’ll be ready to set them up immediately.
