Harvesting Wild Birds for Food after the SHTF

Harvesting Wild Birds for Food after the SHTF - This article takes a look at the various types of birds that can be harvested. It also takes an interesting look at laws protecting certain birds. I really like this idea because we don't know which laws will be enforced or how much of law will be enforced in a SHTF scenario. The author also talks about various methods for taking these wild birds in the field. Better to have something other than a bow and arrow for birds.

The idea that food may get so scarce that we turn to harvest wild birds is a terrifying thought right? Well, I spent about 6 hours in a tick-infested blind trying to harvest wild birds this weekend. My fridge is …

The Enemies of Food Storage

The Enemies of Food Storage - In a SHTF situation, no one should be surprised when the grocery stores are cleaned out in a day or two and shortly after your amenities such as refrigerators and freezers will cease to be of use without proper planning. That’s why having extensive knowledge of food storage and preparation are vitally important.

I would encourage anyone who is truly interested in food storage, canning and other ways of growing, cooking and processing foods to take a course in food safety. It is great information for the smooth sailing of today or the …
