I love to teach traps and snares
Comms is my thing... & Alaska Bush Living is what I do.......
Comms and shooting skills
Comms and engineering....
I would like to see or hear about your favorite & easiest snares & traps. We have bunnies here and they quite unpredictable in where they go. I keep wondering how to trap one.
Now that @Tempstar got me thinking, being an mechanical engineer I would like to add
Engineering principals, plumbing, house electrical, fishing skills.....
Shooting (basics, safety, not advanced marksmanship), electrical wiring (homes, etc.), cooking/baking
I love to teach shooting to all genders and sex to females only...though I do get turned on by @chelloveck sometimes. I've often fantasized about showing him something he's never seen before...the other end.
Shooting skills and Logistics, Low Tech Solutions.
There's no accounting for some people's fantasies.....it's "the other end" of what, that has me somewhat alarmed.
If I'm having to teach a female sex, then they probably aren't old enough to be engaging in it. As to teaching others marksmanship: I'm open to doing that. Though, a condom over the barrel, is no substitute for a properly applied safety catch.
well I have many skills as far as wilderness living, shelters, primitive tools and weapons and just thriving in the wilderness
I am a shooting instructor my self but my question is what do you do when you run out of bullets?
In my day in the green machine, it was called an IA (immediate action stoppage) drill.
Learning how to reload spent cartridges,, and bullet casting are useful ways of having firearm fodder available for the ammo magazine.
DIY electrical theory and innovation. After you understand the basics and have moved on to advanced theory, you can make just about anything (yes, limits do exist).
Also applies to firearms and ammunition as well.. Take an interest in how things are made..
You'd have to whip that lil one-eyed thang out and put it in my hand for me to show you that "other end" you have never seen before, old son. I might need to put on my reading glasses tho.
I guess I don't have the skills required to teach understanding of my warped, evil humor.
Didn't you watch the old B monster movies when you were a kid? When you run out of bullets you THROW THE GUN!
lol I was talking about all together no ammo primitive weapons
another monkey reminded me of one of my other "skills" that I enjoy teaching...bicycling. While I have raced, my real expertise in the area is utility, commuting and recreational type riding and bikes. I might start a thread somewhere else where I and others with the same knowledge can do a Q&A type thing for those who are looking to incorporate a bike into their preps or bug out plans.
As in what? Like not getting married?
lmfao I dodged that bullet for many years but finaly got a good one now
I work in electronics professionally so that's what I gravitate towards, with particular attention to ham radio. I can also do AC wiring, motors, and off grid power.
A lot of my effort is spent "un-teaching" bad habits and misinformation.
This would be a good time to shill my blog Off Grid Ham - Keeping amateur radio on when the grid is gone . It's my version of an "online Elmer" program.
I am good at home & auto repairs although not good enough to train others. I can get by, but I'm no wizard. Ditto for guns.
I like to hunt be it with a rifle a pistol a knife a blow gun a David sling a atlatl a spear slingshot or a bow the best way to become good or...

Turf: cleaning a armadillo without getting leprosy?
Looking for the knowledge not readily available in common print. JMHO.
This is a very good skill to have not just in shtf but in every day uses.

It had been too long since I'd last had a fire.
The next morning the smell of wood-smoke on my shirt stopped me in my tracks.
