Check your skills against those that Cabela's ranks as the 13 most important survival skills.
Are you really ready for a survival situation?
Most outdoorsmen would like to think that they have what it takes to survive in most any given situation. We pride ourselves on our ability to hunt and catch our own food and "live off the land" but in the long run is that enough should push come to shove?
Cabela's has put out a list of the 13 survival skills that they deem necessary for long term survival. Give it a look and see how many of these you can check off. It may not be as many as you thought.
So, how did you do? 13 out of 13? If so you have a decent chance of true long term survival. If not, maybe it's time to brush up on a few of your survival skills.
Even if you are not a "prepper" these are all great skills to have. You never know what could happen in the backcountry, whether on a hike, hunting, or camping trip. The more you know the better off you are.
