“Come hunt with us, it would be fun!” they said. This was four days ago, and the other members of the crew are probably snug in their beds while you’re scraping together bugs for dinner. You’ve got your camp set up and you have a fire going. You’re following all the advice you’ve ever received before a trip, but you’re finding it hard not to listen to the voices in your head. In fact, much of the survival process takes place in your mind.
Don’t Underestimate Shallow Water
There are two major concerns when survivors cross shallow water, the first is that they’ll underestimate the current and get swept away. The other is shallow water blackout, which often takes place when swimmers take a large gulp of air before going under water. This is because the hyperventilation causes a decrease in the oxygen and CO2 levels in the bloodstream, which means the body is unable to tell the brain that it needs air.
Keep Those Emotions in Check
It’s easy to become despondent when things are on the dreary side. This may cause you to lose focus and lose track of the important steps to ensure survival. A way to keep up the good cheer is to get a fire roaring. Not only does it provide heat, it also creates a sense of security. It also adds another chance of discovery by other hikers or a rescue party.
Use Some Of Those Self-Sufficient Skills
If there is no way of knowing how long you will find yourself out in the wild, you may want to look at your surrounds as a more permanent location. This would mean harnessing some additional skills that include gardening, repurposing, and cooking. Finding the right location for a sturdy shelter should also feature on this list.
Steer Clear of Disease Carriers
Hunters and their dogs often find themselves on the wrong side of the hunting stick when they don’t take care in the hunt as they expose themselves to disease. Some of the diseases that are fairly common include rabies, salmonellosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and more. Survivors who find themselves desperate for food or water often find themselves in this predicament. These diseases are spread through infected animals, insects, contaminated soil, and water.
If you’re an avid hunting enthusiast, you know that choosing the right rifle scope is just as important as choosing the right ammunition or survival gear. Accuracy is essential when you’re out hunting and a high-quality scope can mean the difference between a kill shot and a shot that allows your target to escape.
Choose the Right Mounts
Using good quality optical mounts to keep your scope secured is just as important as having the scope itself. A high-quality optical mount will keep your scope securely in place, which is critical when you have your next target in sight. Without secure mounting, the scope will shift over time, causing your accuracy to drop. Make sure that your mounts are strong and durable and that they also fit the overall style of your rifle.
Maintain Your ScopeIn order to ensure that your scope stays in good operating condition, there are some maintenance and care tasks that you’ll need to perform. Make sure that you cover up the lens whenever you’re not using it to prevent dust, moisture, or other contaminants from damaging the lens. You should also be cleaning your scope as needed so that dirt, mud, and forest debris don’t cause damage to your scope or other components of your rifle. Too much sun exposure can also potentially harm the lens structure, so be sure to keep it out of direct sunlight whenever possible.
