Teaching the Boy

Along with hunting/trapping skills, I try to teach my son as many survival skills as possible.

While we were out in this snow storm, a balmy 4 degrees with 10 to 20 mph winds, I try to point out natural areas that are protected from the wind and would be easier to make a fire.

He is a smart kid but his mind tends to wander some times, which is why I make him program our vehicle location into his GPS everytime we head out " just in case".
He also carries the basic gear: knife, food, water, flashlite, lighters and an extra fleece top.
I hope he never has to go get help in the event that I may be hurt, but if he does, he should perform OK...... I hope.
