1.) Use as fishing line or fishing net - The inner strands can be taken out and used as 50lb test fishing line. You can also construct a fishing net using the right tying techniques.
2.) Create a shelter - By tying branches or other material together you can create a makeshift shelter. You can also stay off the ground by constructing a hammock.
3.) Create traps or trip wires - Using the inner strands of the paracord you can create a snare trap for small animals or a trip wire to act as a security warning for predators or attackers. There are many different types of animal traps you can make.
4.) Fire starter - By using your paracord to make a bow drill (like seen on many survivor shows) you can create a fire much faster than any other method using only wood.
5.) Medical uses - You can make a tourniquet to stop a wound from bleeding, or create a sling to secure a broken arm. You can even use the inner strands as dental floss.
6.) Obstacles - You can use paracord to repel down a cliff, or climb up a tree.
7.) Bear bag - By hanging your food in a tall tree, you can keep the bears or other ground animals from stealing your food.
8.) YOU NAME IT - Paracord is useful for so many things, the military uses it, i have even heard of someone being able to tow a car out of a ditch by braiding the paracord enough times to get thousands of pounds of strength to do so.
