Survival Basics Video Compilation

A great way to learn about our series!

Now a super value. Both volumes of Survival Basics on ONE DVD!

You get 134 minutes of super quality video instruction for only $16.95!

This DVD has 31 chapters for easy access to information. Great for scouts and schools!


We finally did what many of our visitors wanted... put together a  comprehensive, yet inexpensive, set of survival skills videos.

We call these videos Survival Basics because that's just what they are. We took about 20 minutes of the most technique  focused material from each of our Woodsmaster videos and compiled  this material into a two video set.sb1a

This set doesn't hold a candle to our original Woodsmaster videos  but they give you the opportunity to see what is on each of the Woodsmaster volumes and to learn basic survival skills at the same  time! They are an incredible value!

Why Buy Survival Basics?
