Some survival guides explain the basics of how to make primitive
tools. But do you know how to actually successful hunt with spear,
throwing stick, bola, or primitive bow? Making tools that you do
not know how to hunt with will not get you to meat. If you're
hunting with primitive weapons, especially crude survival weapons
you've made in the field under actual survival conditions, you must
adapt your strategy to the weapons available or go hungry. Author
James M. Ayres grew up in the Midwest hunting squirrels, rabbits,
and other small game with bows, spears, atlatls, and bolas he made
myself. He has hunted with bow, spear, net, and other primitive
weapons with the Lacandon in Yucatan, the Igorots in the
Philippines, the K'iche' in Guatemala, the Sasak in Indonesia, and
others. In Survival Knives, he shares his knowledge so you, too,
can survive using such tools and weapons. It's not enough to have a
knife and know how to make basic hunting weapons. That's
craftsmanship-not survival. Nor is it enough simply to have a knife
when trapped in an emergency situation, like a collapsed building.
You need to know how to conserve your knife and use it properly to
escape so that it will not break and you are not injured. Learn how
to use survival knives, and how to use the tools and weapons you
can make with the knife-not only in wilderness, but also in urban
areas, foreign countries, and disaster zones such as earthquakes,
floods, fires, and civil insurrections.
