Ok the shelter contest will open tomorrow. It is open to any type of survival shelter that you build yourself with the natural materials you find in the wild. We aren't building a base camp here. The only store bought item allowed is cordage. I will let the contest run through 12/31/2017. I will pick a winner sometime (shortly) after that. The winner will receive a prize package that I will be putting together, it is going to include a new Victorinox Recruit ES plus whatever else I decide to order. So get out there, have some fun and show us some shelters!
