This will be vital to have protection from elements. Just remember, make your shelter before dark catches you.
When you’re out in the woods, the temperature can drop quickly. Thus, after prioritizing the abovementioned, immediately find a way how you can stay warm. If you’re cold, your body will seek more food for energy and heat which is a problem since this is limited when you’re in the wild.
You need to practice your hunting skills as well. As long as you know how and where to find food, you’ll be fine. When you are in survival mode though, your best options would be wild animals, wild plants, insects and bugs.
