Spearfishing for Survival

We are always thinking about guns and ammo for survival. What about spearfishing?  Spearfishing is relatively easy and not that many people do it. The odds of getting food would be greater in an emergency situation.

All you really need is a pole spear of some kind and a tip to screw on it. Depending on the visibility where you are, will decide how long of a pole you might want to get. In a disaster or a SHTF scenario you might be the only one that can get food. Think about it, all the game will be long gone, growing a garden takes a while. Spearfishing might be just the ticket if you live near a body of water with fish in it.

You can go to any dive shop and they should be able to fix you up with what you need. I know here in Oregon it is illegal to spear game fish like salmon or trout but you can take all the other fish you want. My thinking in a survival situation the rules are out the window. The more things you know how to do, they better off you and your family will be.

Emergency Items You Might Want To Think About

We are all thinking about survival these days. We have made plans, built our bug out bags and prepared the best we can. One thing that people forget about when preparing is the every day things you might need to have with you.

Here is a list of things I think are pretty important to have in an emergency situation.

1. Prescription Medicine, if you can, have your doctor write you a script for extra medicine.

2. Don’t forget about your pets or other animals. If you are taking your pets with you, bring food and water for them also. If you have livestock that you must leave make sure to have a way to get them food and water. Either get a bigger water trough or put out more food for them.

3. If you have a baby, does it have special needs, do you have formula and diapers extra ready to go.

4. You might want to think about personal feminine hygiene supplies

5. Bring a paper and pen so you can write phone numbers or notes down for information.

6. Bring a sleeping bag for each person, if you live in a climate that is cold you need to consider your needs. If you live where it is warm maybe just a blanket will work. Look at your own situation and decide on what you will need.

7. If you have children bring some games or puzzles to keep their minds off of the situation. A little entertainment really goes a long ways. You know your children best, so decide what they would need.

8. Some kind of utensils or paper plates will come in handy.

9. My personal favorite bring some toilet paper. If things are bad, public restrooms will not have any of that kind of thing.

10. Matches in a water proof container, or some way to start a fire.

These are just a few things to think about that wouldn’t normally be thought about to put in your emergency kit. The better prepared you are, the easier the emergency will be for you and your family.
