[Video] How To Build A Debris Hut Shelter

Emergency Shelter In A Deciduous Forest

If you’re lost in a forest without your gear or the means to create a fire, here’s how to build a debris shelter to help you get through the night.

This type of shelter should keep you warm and dry. And you’ll see why this probably won’t work in a pine forest.

Survival Lilly starts with a ridge pole leaning against a natural structure. Beneath this you cover the ground with a thick layer of dead leaves.

[Video] Planting A Wilderness Survival Cache

Buried Emergency Supplies

Burying a cache of supplies you might need in an emergency situation is a great survival strategy.

You could plant more than one cache along your bug out route, or in different locations if it’s an “urban cache”. However, never bury it too close to your actual bug out camp in case it’s now occupied by others outside your group.

What’s In The Cache

One of our favorite folks, Survival Lilly, uses a plastic, general purpose first aid container to store the supplies to be buried: no rust and the rubber seal makes it waterproof (for a few years).

So what’s in it? Here’s the list:

  • contractor trash bags,
  • tissues,
  • hand-crank flashlight,
  • mirror to inspect facial injuries/signalling,
  • canteen set,
  • folding knife,
  • candle …

[Video] A Bow And Arrow Shooting Technique

5 Critical Parts Of Bow & Arrow Shooting

There are several bow and crossbow shooting techniques. In the video below, Survival Lilly demonstrates her successful method using a Falco Twin bow. She breaks it down into five parts.

The first four:

  1. Stance: body turned 90° from target, feet apart for stability, knees slightly bent,
  2. Anchor Position: always the same along jaw line,
  3. Aim: 3-point line from eye along sinew, arrow point and target,
  4. Release: a “light finger shoulder touch” is the best way I can explain it. You have to watch the video.

[Video] 8 Survival Books Recommended By Survival Lilly

Survival Book Recommendations

In the video, Survival Lilly discusses the books she references for survival and bushcraft skills. These 8 books also give her subject ideas for her YouTube topics.

I know there are a lot of armchair preppers and survivalists: you can’t live in the wilderness in survival mode all the time … if at all.

Survival Books Recommended By Survival Lilly

But you can read and study books about what you should know, so that if the opportunity arrives–a camping trip for example–you can practice a variety of skill sets.

The Eight Survival Books

Here is the list of books Lilly uses and recommends, in no particular order:

1) Bushcraft by Mors Kochanski: a true bushcraft book with detailed drawings and discussions about shelters, tree-felling, feather sticks, safe knife-craft, etc.

2) Epic Survival by Matt Graham: not a survival manual, but the true story of Graham’s life of primitive living. An interesting read.
