The wilderness is an unforgiving place. There are so many different ways to die out there. What do you do first? Whether in the woods, in the mountains, or on a deserted island, here are a few essential steps survivalists say to follow.
1. Signal For Rescue.
The sooner you return to civilization, the better. Your best chance of escape is to be rescued, so use your resources to signal any ships or planes that might pass by.
2. Avoid Injury At All Cost.
Your feet are some of your most important and vulnerable tools for survival. Boots will protect you from cutting your feet as you explore the area for the next step to survival.
