    Snow is not ice. You're right about it takes alot of snow to hydrate. But even alittle can hydrate your mouth atleast.

    Obviously I know it's wrong (and so I wouldn't do this), but you'd think you should warm up a frost-bitten person as quickly as possible, so the ice crystals melt quickly in the blood as they get detached before they do too much damage.

    Bears love hugs. When you see a bear, run up to it and embrace it. This will instantly neutralize all aggression the bear may be exhibiting. You will also make a lifelong friend.

    Why am I getting survival tips from a guy who looks like he's never left his house? Cactus isn't bad for short term, especially if you cook in on a fire, we are talking survival. Same thing with drinking urine, once or twice, which is usually enough for short term. Booze gives a warming calming effect, don't drink a lot, but a little can reduce a panic if you aren't trained or helping the inexperienced. Rubbing does work for most people who are just cold, if you have frostbite you have bigger problems and are probably numb not rubbing anyway.

    This comment will probably be buried, but on the photo of the rattlesnake they pointed out that you should watch out for the rattles and the diamond pattern. I live in Oregon where we have those rattlesnakes, and I've actually seen a few that didnt have rattles at all. We also have bull snakes which look almost identical to rattlesnakes and are safe to handle. The surest way to tell them apart is by the head; a rattlesnake has a round flat head while a bull snake has a stereotypically "pointed," snake-shaped head.

    Not sure where people are getting the alcohol idea, I've had that information from D.A.R.E. in 5th grade, middle and high school health classes (apparently some places, like Montana, does not require these to graduate. I had to explain male and female sex organs to my, at the time, 19 year old cousin because he didn't take the classes as Montana didn't require him to), an episode of Family Guy, Hunter Safety and from other MReporterrs.

    As per drinking urine, only collect the middle part of the stream, not when starting or ending, those periods have the majority of the contaminants. Same for when doing a UA.

    Awesome and very well detailed video my friend 😊 I watched at first just to see what you had to say but now that I have, I am happy I did. You were spot on with your information and I thank you for making this video. I have been a woodsman since I was a kid growing up with my native American grandad and learned loads about survival and living off the land, and today I spend my time teaching others what I know, so it is always refreshing when I see videos like this that actually give true information meant to teach and help others 😊 God bless my friend 😊

  64. Yaakov19

    Yaakov199 days ago

    What if you suck the venom out of the snake bite without incision? Just kinda lie down, bite below heart level, and try to suck out any venom while also cutting off circulation? I know that snake venom can be harmlessly swallowed, and it won't cause any problems, because it needs to get to your bloodstream to actually be poisonous. Logically, cutting off circulation would help cut off this venom's main access to the brain, and slow down effects.

    Pointing out a Myth in the Myth Video! On #7: You actually DON'T need to remember what the snake looks like, bring a picture, or even the snake itself. Antivenom is not a singular dose per snake, but rather is a cocktail of EVERY snake in the region - this is one of the reasons that it's so expensive!

    Who says to eat snow? Maybe a small amount that isn't going to help much but not sure who would say that. Maybe I just read to many survival books cuz none of this is news to me and seems like common sense lol Also you shouldn't put on a tourniquet on from a bite because blocking blood flow will actually increase your heart rate.

    Eating cacti can also cause other problems. Various cacti have phenylthalamines. One thing you dont need is to be tripping balls AND lost. Also some cacti in the euphorbia genus are extremely poisonous.
