How to tie the most useful knots for survival and camping [videos]


As of late I have been getting a lot of requests for knot videos.  I have already done several so I thought would put them together in one place to make it easy to share with you and your outdoor friends.

Knot tying is one of those things that is incredibly valuable to any outdoor pursuit.  On a deer hunt this weekend I used 3 seperate knots to make a lot of things easier for me.  I was actually sitting in my deer stand and thinking wondering how people get things done with out knowing knots.  If you are one of those people then watch this series of videos.

In this first video we talk about a timber hitch, clove hitch, half hitches.

In this video we take a look at the classic figure 8 as well as a bowline.


In this video I show you how to put these knots to use.  Tieing gear down to a vehicle, making a tripod, and more.

In this one I show you a couple of methods on joining rope together.


In this last one I show you five different methods for coiling and storing rope.

So that was a lot of rope.  I hope you enjoyed it.  If you have any questions then leave them in the comments below this blog piece or in the comments section of the videos.  You will probably get a lot of answers from our community of followers as well as us.
