Survival Bracelet Use #1 - Game Carrier

You may know that I have recently discovered the survival bracelet. I even learned how to make my own. A survival bracelet is a bracelet that is made of about 8 feet of paracord. It can be easily unwound and used to make a number of things, often things you would never expect.

Last Tuesday I went squirrel hunting. Tuesday afternoons are the only time I can get away to hunt without taking time off work and finding babysitters. I killed a squirrel, but forgot my game carriers back at the truck. I make my own game carriers. They attach to my belt and can each hold four small animals. I prefer these to a vest and bag. They keep both me and my kill cool. Anyway, I didn't want to walk back to my truck just to drop off one squirrel, so I made a game carrier out of my survival bracelet.

Here is how I did it:

First, unravel about two inches of the bracelet.

Then, tie a simple knot at the end of each strand.

Next, tie a slip knot.

Now, all you need to do is slip the loop around the neck of your kill....

Pretend my daughter's toy is something dead

and attach it to your belt.

It took only two or three minuets in the field and worked perfectly!
