Check Out This DIY Shelter and Hunting Camp (VIDEO)

DIY Shelter and Hunting Camp

Check out this nice diy shelter and hunting camp, which comes with a camo lean-to sleeping area, walls that are completely surrounding it to prevent animals from entering and even a hunting stand inside.

Inside is also a fire space and the lean-to features a mylar blanket as part of the ceiling to reflect the heat from the fire back at the sleeping space.

Have you ever built something like this?

diy-shelter-and-hunting-camp

The beauty of this DIY Shelter is that you have heat from both the front and the back because its reflected. A drop-down plastic sheet that protects against rain or wind. The plastic blocks the rain/wind while allowing the heat of the fire to come through.

This is brilliant because it keeps the heat inside the sleeping space to make sure you’re warm.

The video is by Survival Lily. She will take you through all the features of her shelter in the first video and in the second she spends the night in the shelter in winter. I like these videos mainly because they were by a woman and shows that women can be as capable at building a shelter as men. Most outdoor survival videos are by men so this was a nice change.

How To Make A Slingbow – Learn How To Make A Slingbow

In this video you’ll learn how to make a slingbow

A sling-bow is basically a slingshot that’s altered to shoot arrows.  They are pretty powerful depending on what materials you use to construct them with, and can be made on a very slim budget. So without further ado lets begin!

You’ll need:

  1. A sling shot
  2. A golf tee
  3. An O-ring
  4. Two medium zip ties
  5. An old beat up arrow
  6. A few strips of duck tape

how to make a slingbow step 1

The first thing you need to do is to prep the sling shot.  The first step in doing this is to take off the existing elastic bands, and discard them.  Next take your heavy duty replacement bands and trim them until there’s 1 inch of band for every 5 inches of arrow.

For example I trimmed my bands to 5 1/2 inches, and they work perfectly with my 25” arrows.  Next put your bands on and leaving a quarter inch to a half inch of extra band extending at the end.  To test pull it back to it’s max draw and have someone measure the distance from the pocket to the extra bit of band on the sling shot.

You want this number to be less than the length of the arrow by one or two inches.

The arrow rest is what is going to hold the arrow before and during the release.  You want the O-ring, to be perfectly vertical, so to do that you first need to put one of the zip ties through the O-ring and then around the end tag of the elastic band like in the picture above.

Don’t tighten it all the way yet, we’ll get to that later. Then next to get the ring to stand vertical you need to counter twist the other zip tie. If you are confused at this point just reference the pictures above.

Now tighten the zip ties until the ring is right in the center, and vertical.

How to Make Rice Water

Have you heard that rice water is a good thing to learn to prepare?

How to Make Rice Water

Learning how to make rice water is really easy and you most likely already have all of the ingredients that you need to make it.

Why is rice water useful?

Rice water is useful when someone is having any type of stomach issues like vomiting or diarrhea. It is very calming if you have an upset stomach, insanely bland, starchy and helps with getting some nutrients into you (or whoever isn’t feeling well)

It really is simple to learn how to make rice water.

All you need is

  1. Rice
  2. Water

Those are the two ingredients you need, simple. Right?

Put two tablespoons of rice into a pot with 1 cup of water. Do not add salt. Now, bring the water to a boil and boil until the rice is tender.

Then strain the rice out and the milky liquid that is left over is the rice water you are looking for.

You can then eat the rice, or add it to a recipe or even use it to feed chickens or your pet dogs. Just don’t boil it for too long because then the rice water will be extremely thick.

We find that anywhere from 15-30 minutes is the right amount of time to boil.

If it gets too thick, you can water it down.

Be sure to let the rice water cool before serving the person who isn’t feeling their best. You can drink it warm or cold so keep that in mind.

Biggest Reason to Learn How To Make Rice Water

The primary reason to make rice water is for relief of diarrhea.

Bland and hydrating as a broth, rice water is a bit starchy and  provides soothing relief for stomach upset whether you drink it hot or cold.

This home remedy for diarrhea is effective and also provides a negligible amount of vitamins and minerals, which is beneficial over drinking water alone.

Benefits of Rice Water

Rich in the vitamin B complex, folic acid, iron, potassium, magnesium and zinc, rice water gains its properties during the cooking process of rice. White rice is ideal, since during the cooking process it loses more properties than whole-wheat rice. Among its biggest benefits are:

  • Natural energy.
  • For gastrointestinal problems such as diarrhea, nausea and vomiting.
  • Prevents gastroenteritis.
  • Helps regulate body temperature.
  • Recommended for pregnant women to induce breast milk production.
  • For relieving skin irritation.
  • Prevents and cures constipation.

Gov. Scott signs Florida emergency concealed carry bill

Good news for all of you living in Florida who carry….

Here’s a look into what was just stated over on the guns.com article

It will now be legal for gun owners in the Sunshine State to temporarily carry concealed handguns without a permit during periods when the sun isn’t shining so bright.

Now law is a measure to allow law-abiding citizens without concealed carry licenses to bear arms during declared mandatory evacuations. A reboot of a failed 2014 bill that was killed in last minute political maneuvering, this session’s effort had an easier go of it after police lobby groups embraced the proposal. It passed the Republican-controlled Senate in an easy 29-10 vote while the House last month approved it by a 86-26 margin.

“As Hurricane Season approaches it’s critical that our rights are protected during natural disasters,” advised Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-Petersburg, in a statement. “With the signing of SB 290, all lawful gun owners will be permitted to carry a concealed weapon if they are complying with a mandatory evacuation during a state of emergency. I’m proud to have sponsored this bipartisan bill ensuring that we have the right to protect our families during these sometimes chaotic times.”

What police are being forced to do now is SICK

This is what we’ve come to.

With all the politically-correct activism against supposedly rampant police brutality against citizens, where every action law enforcement takes under stress when every second counts is under scrutiny, we now have the most ludicrous and dangerous recommendation from an activist police commission as to what police should do when confronting someone armed.

Run away.

police-1000x640

And tragically, this is not a joke.

 

From the official blog of the Los Angeles Police Protective League, If a police officer is confronted by a suspect with a weapon, those entrusted to set policies for the Police Department believe officers should run away.

 

That’s the recent finding from the Los Angeles Police Commission which has turned Monday morning quarterbacking into a weekly agenda item at the three-ring circus they preside over every Tuesday morning. In the Commission’s most recent decision on an officer-involved shooting, in which a suspect charged at two officers swinging an 8 to 9-inch knife, they faulted the officer for not “redeploying” to “create distance.” In plain English: the officer didn’t run away.

 

The key facts in this case are not in dispute. A female suspect, armed with an 8 to 9-inch knife, charged at officers, repeatedly ignored commands to stop, and was recorded yelling “shoot me” as she swung her knife from side to side.

The armed suspect quickly closed the gap between her knife and the police officers from 70 feet to less than 5 feet in under 10 seconds. That is when the first officer discharged his service weapon. The second officer involved had only three seconds to respond to the imminent threat. Even the Commission stated that “It was reasonable for Officer C to believe, in the moment when the use of force occurred, that the subject would imminently assault him with the knife.”

So where’s the beef?

The officers didn’t run away.

Suspect charging from the front. Vehicles on either side. Where do you “redeploy?” Run backwards. This is absurd and it’s dangerous. What happens if the officer loses his footing with a charging suspect? What happens if the suspect runs into a nearby home or store and confronts its occupants with her weapon? What if the suspect also had a concealed gun?

What is created when an officer turns tail and runs away is a large target. It’s called a back. The officer would put their lives in further jeopardy by running away if the suspect had a gun. At this close range, running away would create a self-caused danger to the officers and the public.

It sure must be easy to talk about “redeploying” an officer’s position while sipping a Diet Coke or bottled water while sitting in a police-guarded, air-conditioned room, in a cushy office chair, watching the events unfold in slow motion on a big-screen TV.

The message the Los Angeles Police Commission is sending to officers confronted with a violent and dangerous suspect is clear: You can save your life or save your job, but you cannot do both.

Liberalism is neutering our law enforcement. It has already neutered our military – literally and figuratively, as transgender troops are welcomed and Rules of Engagement are made so stringent, warriors like Clint Lorance end up in jail for actually killing the enemy.

The inmates are running the asylum and already criminals are owning the streets. Not surprisingly, police recruitment is struggling and morale is plummeting. In Chicago for example, police stops are down by 90 percent as violent crime skyrockets.
https://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20160331/bronzeville/chicago-police-stops-down-by-90-percent-as-gun-violence-skyrockets So far this year, 3,182 people have been shot in the Windy City, 494 fatally. Only eight of those killed were officer-involved shootings. That’s just 1.6 percent – hardly an epidemic, but you’d never know that from reading the liberal media.

Nobody volunteers to become a police officer if the job description includes “sitting duck,” “target” and “impotent.”

No wonder gun sales to private citizens are skyrocketing across the nation. Who’s going to protect us if the people who are supposed to are told they cannot?

This is absolutely insane.
