Survival Skill : How To Collect Birch Sap

This is how to collect birch sap from your own birch trees as a beverage for a Survival. During the summer, the birch tree stores nourishment for the next period of growth in its roots.

That period starts when the snow has melted away and the day-temperature reaches some degrees above freezing point. The rise of the sap stops immediately when the tree comes into leaf. During sap-rising, a big old birch can give 15-20 litres per day, but this requires a tapping-hole of 5 cm diameter and 10 cm depth. The birch will endure such treatment only once, maybe twice in its lifetime. To be more careful with the tree, perh...

Not only are small game tastier than roasted crickets, but the physical act of making and setting the animal traps or snares will als...
