Above is the file I thought I was first posting, listed below is the one I did.  Textural discussion of Hunting by a man who has stayed alive hunting.   The one below deals more with Snares and Deadfalls.  In the early days of creating the web site, things were hectic.  Often I put in material I had no time to re-read.

  My first notes PDF and the Snares and traps PDF as one file.


The Alan Fry book is such a good one, that I bought two of them.  Thinking to make hand- outs for other people, I began to catch the important, salient points, in my computer files. 


These files represent me working with my notes a couple of years before there was even a web-site thought of.  (My friends actually both talked me into a web site, and set me up in it.  Even gave it the name Survival Primer, because that is what I called my files.)


Now it appears the book is out-of-print, and they may be even more important.  You need to download and print them, in case I am asked to quit posting them. 


The publisher should start printing   

WILDERNESS SURVIVAL HANDBOOK by Alan Fry. ISBN 0-312-14763-5    

again.  In fact, tell them I said so.  I would glad for this book to get around. 


Again, please consider these posted pages as a little free advertisement.
