OUTDOOR TALES: Worms and muddy water aid survival

Outdoor Tales

By Phil Junker

In this part of the country, people hunting or hiking in the woods rarely get lost — really lost. Sometimes they are lost for a few hours, possibly even overnight, but rarely really lost.

In most of the lower Midwest, you can walk in straight line and you will find a road or find a stream to follow. People frequently get disoriented and walk in circles. And, sometimes injury can curtail movement.

It’s always wise to take precaution and be prepared — even on a warm sunny day. It could turn into a cool, rainy night or even nights.
