At this point, there are literally hundreds–maybe even thousands–of articles about finding and purifying water, but every now and then I come across one that stands head and shoulders above the rest. This one, in particular, is my personal favorite and anyone who is interested in wilderness survival–or really any kind of survival–should bookmark it.
In this article, Deer Hunting Field describes 18 ways to find water in the wilderness and 14 ways to purify it. There are pictures, lists, video demonstrations, pros and cons, a Q&A section, and even a quick navigation box at the top so you can jump right to the part you’re interested in. This is a really great resource.

It can be life-saving, especially if you’re out alone and something happens. On top of that, it’s a basic survival skill which pretty much anyone should pick up at some point or another.” Follow the link below to keep reading.
