Fall has the biggest wild food payoff of the year. High calorie nuts, seeds, fruits and berries can be easily foraged. These foods can provide you with a valuable emergency energy supply or a tasty snack on your next hunt or hike. Here are your 10 best bets for fall foraging. [ Read Full Post ]
I believe the five most important types of self-reliance and survival training are: 1) shooting, 2) first aid, 3) martial arts, 4) wilderness survival, and 5) food production.
Why bother? For me, it’s not about prepping for a financial collapse or a zombie-pocalypse, it’s about helping my family and then being in a position to help others. And even if I'm never in a dire survival situation, I’ll still be better off for the time and energy that has been invested in training.

Let me say from the beginning, that this is not a decision that I would relish: To eat slugs or starve to death. I’ve eaten them before, and I hope I never have to repeat that experience. But they will pass for food in a pinch. Terrestrial slugs and snails (found on land, not in the sea) are generally safe for human consumption, always after a thorough cooking. And their nutritional value certainly justifies the effort of collecting and preparing them. These critters have about 90 calories per 100 grams of “meat,” which is high in protein (12 to 16 percent) and rich in minerals. It’s a little hard to consider them food though, when you realize that their favorite meal is scat. [ Read Full Post ]
The last thing you want to see in your carefully stored food is evidence of mice and rats having their way with your stuff. Having the right containers, poisons, and traps can be a big step forward in rodent-proofing your food stores. And they beat the noise and smell of a cupboard full of cats.
Put It In Glass: Mason jars are my favorite glass containers. These canning-friendly jars with tight fitting metal lids will keep any critter out of your storage (rodent or bug). The biggest jars make a great receptacle for rice and other staple foods. Twenty pounds of rice fits perfectly into 6 of the large “half-gallon” mason jars. [ Read Full Post ]
Every growing kid needs protein. But what about grown-ups? Especially grown-ups who might happen to be in a survival scenario? Yep, there’s protein for them, too. It’s a little white pill called SurvivAMINO.
While I have always advocated calories as the biggest part of physical survival, there is some wiggle room when talking about food. Those calories need to supply you with fat, carbohydrates and useable protein. You may not find enough grubs or berries in the wild for your fat and carb requirements, but it is easier now to handle your protein needs. [ Read Full Post ]
Your bug-out site can be a lot of things. It can be an emergency location to shelter you during a crisis. It can be a favorite hunting and trapping spot that you know well and can return to when things fall apart.
This site can also be a self-sustaining “garden,” if you plant the right trees, shrubs, and perennial plants there long before you need them. The following long-lived plants and trees can look after themselves once they are established on a piece of property.
