How To Build Shelter In The Woods
Updated: Apr 11
We've put together a handy collection of videos showing you different shelters you can build in the woods.
Let's start of with a basic survival shelter. In the video below you will see how to build a quick and relatively straight forward shelter in emergency situations. When in such a situation, you're priority is going to be having something to shield you from the elements. Something to trap the heat from your fire and keep you dry and warm. Wind is a killer in the cold. If this can provide you shelter from wild animals, this is a plus, but without the right protection form the weather, you're in deep trouble.
Next, we'll take a look at other options of building a shelter. As you'll see, there are several similar principals at play here.
And finally, we have a much more advanced and robust shelter you can build if you plan on spending some prolonged time in the woods. This will definitely take more time and effort, but if you are planning on spending the weekend there perhaps go hunting and fishing, this might be the way to go. Keep in mind, any food you have (including the meat and fish you hunt) will attract predators.
