Snares and Traps are designed to choke, crush, hang, or entangle the animals that you’re trying to catch. The best traps are usually very simple to make and should be placed in multiple locations. When using traps and snares, numbers are very important.
A Survival Knife is probably the single most important tool in your survival gear. You can do a LOT to survive in the wilderness with nothing but a good knife.
Doug Ritter's philosophy on survival knives is, "if it isn't with you, it can't save you!" We feel the same way that's why we worked with Doug to developed the RSK Mk5 which is small enough to fit in an Altoid tin. CRKT also makes large survival knives.

A shotgun is a valuable tool that should be in every survival toolkit . In today’s environment the shotgun can be a bit of a question mark; it’s more powerful than a pistol but has less range than a rifle, and limited magazine capacity.
You can make other field-expedient weapons such as the throwing stick, archery equipment, and the bola.
Preparing an Emergency Evacuation Plan
Build a Kit After a major disaster the usual services we take for granted, such as running water, refrigeration, and telephones, may be unavailable. Experts recommend that you should be prepared to be self-sufficient for at least three days.
