Welcome to Canadian Wilderness Survival.com
When I first started our backpacking I used MREs, and after years of advances in the market of backpacking foods I soon changed my preference to freeze-dried foods. MRE’s are great if you live in an area where water is not easy to come by, or if you’re on a mission or operations where you will just need to eat right out of the package or you can’t stop to make a fire and eat. This is why they are called MRE which stands for Meals Ready to Eat.Add a comment
The Barracuda XML2 is made by a Canadian company called ArmyTek www.armytek.com and has been kindly supplyed for our review. This is the largest tactical light I have reviewed to date. When I first tried the light in the daytime at home I will be honest I didn’t think it was much brighter than my Fenix TK30 which Is 630 lumens. It was not until I took the two lights out into the field at night when I really learned just how bright it was!Add a comment
For everyday carry you may not want to go with a large light like the ArmyTek Barracuda, but a good option would be the Predator PRO. The Predator PRO was sent to us for review by www.armytek.com. The Predator Pro produces over 670 lumens but with a much more compact size. At just a touch over 6 inches and 1.56 inches in diameter, the size is ideal for carrying on your belt or if you’re looking for a rifle mountable tactical light.Add a comment
For full disclosure I didn’t review the first bear Grylls fixed blade because after doing some research (as I do for all products we review) it was getting very bad reviews, but GERBER has made up for it with the new Bear Grylls Ultimate Pro Fixed Blade!
One of the most important pieces of kit you need when hunting, and the most overlooked, is the trail camera. In this day and age you need to scout out a location to hunt, but let’s face it most people work and have day-to-day lives, and many don’t have time to run around the woods scouting locations and sitting for hours to see if there are in fact deer or moose around.Add a comment
