Do not set these in an area where children, pets, or other domestic animals may be harmed. In a survival situation, check your trapline at least twice a day and inform others in your group where the traps are set. Paiute Deadfall The Paiute deadfall is the fastest deadfall you will find. It was used throughout the American Southwest and Africa for trapping small game. It can be a frustrating trap for the beginner so carve a few sets and then practice setting the trap until you can do it with your eyes closed! Survival Snares Snares are the simplest means of procuring wild game as there is little to carve as with a deadfall.

When most people think of snaring, they recall the movie where a person steps on a camouflaged snare that encircles their leg and yanks them up into the jungle canopy.

There are snares that work like that and in the old days, before the availability of steel cable, this is what was used as the wire or rope used for the snare was too weak to hold an animal on the ground in place. The snares I will cover are much easier to set. There are two basic snare materials to consider.

The first is for small animals like rabbits and squirrels and involves the use of thin wire available from hardware stores or military tripwire. For a few dollars, one can purchase a spool of gauge picture wire that will provide dozens of snares and takes up little space in the pack. Some survival books imply that this is all you need to snare every animal in North America.

Baiting Your Traps If you are out in the wilderness without such baits then use something exotic and uncommon to the area. Choose some succulent cattail roots from a nearby swamp. This will spark much greater interest than the greens it is surrounded by on a daily basis. Look inside your pack- any bagels or apples? Setting Snares on a Trail This is where you set up a number of snares along an established trail that is fresh with tracks and hope the animal meanders into a snare while going about their daily routine.

You can dramatically increase the odds if you use bait placed along the trail behind the snare. Bugs Edible bugs and grubs? Not a chance, you say! Guess what, if you have downed a cup of apple cider or chowed on peanut butter lately, then you have consumed insects.

Western culture is probably the only culture on the planet that does not partake of insects as a regular part of their diet. In some regions of the world, insects are sold in markets. Insects are easily found on the landscape and can provide a tremendous amount of protein until your hunting or fishing pays off. Any insect must be boiled or roasted to kill parasites. Below are some of the more common types that we use on survival courses and are worth considering.

Be mindful when collecting insects that their predators may lurk nearby. Keep an eye out for scorpions, spiders, and the like. These creatures are not recommended for consumption despite what Reality TV shows try to pass off on viewers. Any of the creatures below, once cooked, can be served with soy sauce, salt, or mixed into stir-fry just like beef or chicken strips. Eating a handful of roasted never raw grasshoppers is nearly equivalent to downing a hamburger.

Crickets are a second best. In parts of Latin America, grasshoppers are sold in markets by the pound. Having had my share of cooked grasshoppers on survival treks, I can say that they are indeed worth collecting, if nothing else presents itself. Remove the legs and wings and then roast them on a rock slab in the center of the fire for twenty minutes until crispy. It will sound like you are chowing on a bag of Doritos. You can also place grasshoppers on a cookie sheet in the oven on degrees for an hour.

Boiling for five minutes is another good method for cooking these tasty critters. To harvest them in the wilds, use a three foot long section from a flexible, green willow shoot and then nab the grasshopper, fly-swatter style.

Crickets can be harvested the same way. Ants : boil up the pupae whitish eggs in the nest to make a hearty insect stew. Avoid fire-ant mounds! Pupae can be collected in huge numbers by carefully digging into the top layer of the anthill during the morning hours. One or two scrapes off a small section of the hill should expose the egg chambers. After collecting, cover the mound back up with dirt and vegetation so the colony can recover.

Grubs found under or in rotten logs can be collected and thrown in the stew pot. Any of the above will also make fine bait for fishing. Summer Greetings!

As I write this my family and I are on the road, heading to our new home in Colorado Springs. Censoring sets survival analysis apart from other analyses: at the end of the follow-up period, not all subjects have experienced the event of interest, and some subjects may drop out of the study prior to completion.

Survival data for a group of subjects is usually visualized by the Kaplan-Meier estimator, representing the probability of a subject remaining free of the event during follow-up.
