You can grow lots of great food and even raise some good meats. Hunting still has its place. Eating wild animals is an experience beyond just filling your belly.

Having the equipment you need to be successful is a such a big deal.
The author is a hunter and freelancer who put this list together based on his own experience. It’s not a list hat will blow you away with bunches of new or interesting equipment.

Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
