Its important to know at least a few survival shelters in case you need them. These basic shelters are easy to make and take less than an hour to build. Heres a list of 4 shelters.
- Stick against tree shelter- This shelter is just a bunch of very small logs and sticks against a tree and insulation on top. Gather 20-30 small logs about 2-3 inches in diameter and start putting them against a tree. Next find sticks and put them on the logs. finally find insulation (leaves, moss, grass, etc,) and start putting on top until you can’t see through the insulation.
- Leaf hut- This is a small hut that requires no materials outside the woods and should be able to fit you and your gear. Find a tree with a u shaped curve 3 or 4 feet of the ground. Get a pole that’s about 5 feet long and put the end of it in the u shape curve. Next start putting sticks on either side of the pole until you have a good wall. Then start getting branches with leaves and put on top. Gather a ton of leaves until you can’t see through.
- Lean to- This is one of the most popular designs. And takes little time to build. Find 2 trees about 4 feet apart with a u shape curves. To start wedge a pole between the 2 trees in the u curve. Find enough poles to be able to put on the entire length of the pole you wedged between the trees. Next put insulation on top and you are done.
- A frame tarp shelter- This shelter is easy to build in about 10 minutes and provides protectoin from the rain. Find 2 trees and tie paracord between them. Put a tarp over the paracord and find small strong sticks to use a stakes. Use a knife to carve the end to a sharpe point and put in the ground. Finally pin down the bottom of the tarp with the stakes.
