lots more cattle than deer,

3 posts in this topic

lots more horses than moose, too. :-) lots more chickens and domestic turkeys, and waterfowl than wild ones, most likely, too. Walking around during daylight hours, if shtf, will get you shot, just for the hell of it by some, as a precaution by others. Small game aint worth the risk. At best, it's something to trap/snare, and best service your lines at night, showing no light. A passive IR monocular is sub $200,  shows you animals and people. and a kid's airsoft NVD goggle is about $100, and will suffice to show you where you are walking. Luminous sights for the AR run about $100



it's dark half of the time, and if you can't see or aim, you're helpless.

IR can give your position away. LOL

I have played with NV gear, that work to about 200 yards with out the need of IR light.

Don't ask what type of make & model as I'm not telling.

I've played hide & seek with my buddies using NV gear, & I've caught them every time when they use their IR turned on.

Large game taken for less than a dozen people you will have a LOT OF WORK trimming cutting smoking  etc

much of the organs need to be eaten first as they spoil first like brains tongue  liver & lungs spleen pancreas (sweetbreads) stomach or tripe process the intestines to make sausage casings bones for calcium eat the marrow etc etc.


Many animals will be mostly wasted because city folk are not educated in how to process animals properly and without waste.


some things to have are salt but you need a lot to make a brine also to store dried casings in and lye to wash and treat your casings pepper white or black red flake etc. this is to prevent flies from laying on your meat  if you have used hard wood the ashes can be used to bury meat or sausages in or you can bury in salt.


Of course if your starving you do the best you can but smoking meat means your stuck for a day or so and smoke sent carries so salt dried strips works.


if I were going to cache something valuable it would be salt it does not go bad but need to be kept dry but even if it clumps it can be easily crushed back to granulated.  Salt need to be pure not iodized you can buy it for water treatment from Wally world 40 to 50 pound sacks.

one sack fits in a 5 gallon bucket it is hygroscopic it attracts water or humidity so a good tight fitting lid.

    • I've found that selecting a large baker type potato, for "sock use", makes an excellent dog deterrent, or for conking someone that needs an attitude adjustment. You can either bake the evidence and eat it, or, if feeling charitable, give it away to someone who will gladly dispose of the evidence for you. I wielded one many times when I had two paper routes as a young boy, even smacked a hippie once who tried to jack my bicycle. I hit him so hard with a giant Baker that it knocked him down. Not too bad for a 12 year old....
    • for simplicity to take care of yourself small back pack to keep your souvenirs  and the following Lifestraw  water filter water bottle as water cost plenty in shops small pocket first aid kit w/ antibiotic and a selection of band aids and alcohol prep pads  to clean prior to covering. crushable / boonie hat and or appropriate weather clothing. Bandanna good size / large one and or a umbrella for shade or rain. Good polarized polycarbonate glasses see into water cuts glare. Cell phone camera lens kit turns your cell phone camera into a macro fisheye or wide angel camera, you need to have good megapixle of 5 or more to get good images or videos. also you need to have a micro flash card maximum to store your images. A walking stick  to defend yourself from animals or whatever. some snacks or hard candy always a good pair of shoes for what activities your attempting  a small roll of cellophane if your heel or foot gets a rub spot some of this makes it slip against the inside of your shoe and not make blisters. always get some cards from your hotel in case the driver is not multilingual ask and look for brochures for events or sites you want to visit you can also use these to show bus drivers or taxi drivers so they know where your intending to go. Phone apps for the local language and or a phrase book phone battery recharger  and learn how to charge your phone with a 9 volt battery and other items for extending your phone battery. menthol inhaler there are some smells you want a break from and many places do not have sewer systems.    
    • Here is my guesstimating, thinking the Rockefellers, Bill Gates, etc are paying for this.They have billion$ of dollar$, a few millions of dollar$ is just a drop in the bucket for them. Not to mention these Alexa devices are eves dropping/ listening in your conversation all the time at your dwelling. Imagin talking to family member/s, friend/s, business partner/s about some idea, then you find out it was stolen from you, right under you noses. Inventions are stolen from people all the time, it’s the registered patten that counts the most, even then you better register the patten in almost every country, if you want to protect your ideas. Even iPhones & ipads are listening devices , someone is listening if not recording every word your saying.  Freedom, what freedom, their is non, we are tied to an invincible rope if you think your not your highly mistaken. IMHO !
    • The thing I like to ask the people who are so enthralled with this tech....So this technology is so very useful, powerful, and can basically run your life for you, it was designed and developed is maintained, expanded and improved constantly....but...the "service" is free and only requires a purchase of under $50 or is simply part of the free phone your cellphone provider handed you. Who paid for this and continues to? How does something like this become a billion dollar industry by charging nothing?
