6 of one half dozen of another


if you think that all the little critters will still be there do not count on it they are smart and in a few days they will realize

the TSHTF and hide see it every deer season.

If many people are wandering through your area attrition take it's toll I learned that from my father who lived through the

depression fruit trees stripped clean lakes fished to the point of needing to go further out or down creeks to find enough fish

large enough to be useful.

and a lot of illegal techniques took so many as to draw the fish population down.

I prefer a gear heavy bag because food is a procurable luxury in the woods. Gear is a different story.


Diferent strokesfor different Folks..

I would rather EAT/be able to get food,than have all the "GEAR" in the world..

Well said 101,

Ive long taken this into consideration regarding the population and my BOL is nowhere near the locale of norfolk or portsmouth or any outlying "threat". Skills most definitely are more valuable than any amount of gear or type of gear regardless of it purpose. But i prefer to have the things that would make my stay in the woods a little easier/comfortable over carrying an excess of food. I can understand how some would read this post and examine my words and thought process and think that im off my rocker but ive learned growing up in the sticks that food is there. maybe not always but more available than gloves persay. lol

    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon. This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
