Safety / Survival / Army Field Manuals / AFM 3-05.70

Chapter 12

Field-Expedient Weapons, Tools, and Equipment

STAFFS

12-1. A staff should be one of the first tools you obtain. For walking, it provides support and helps in ascending and descending steep slopes. It provides some weapon's capabilities if used properly, especially against snakes and dogs. It should be approximately the same height as you or at least eyebrow height. The staff should be no larger than you can effectively wield when tired and undernourished. It provides invaluable eye protection when you are moving through heavy brush and thorns in darkness.
