So I was reading that one should avoid brightly-colored insects and so forth when searching for things to eat in the wilderness, as the colors often are a way to advertise to life forms that these creatures are toxic. I was thinking though, does that mean that wearing brightly-colored clothing could ward off predators that might otherwise want to eat you? Or would it just make you a bigger target?

Forget the bright colors just put some bacon grease on the bottom of your boots; they hate bacon.:D

Might depend the species of predator and whether they can distinguish bright colors.

Since there is no dedicated "knots" thread, I'll put this here.

I was going over some knots today (I'd forget how to tie my shoelaces if I didn't do it every day) and came upon the Falconers Knot. It struck me that this might be a good knot to learn in case you lose the use of a hand in a survival situation. Or if you have a Falcon. :D

This is the best video I've found so far: Falconers Knot
