Different Approaches to

Survival Food


Emergency Preparedness Survival Food Supply

The term, "survival food", can mean diversely, as your way lies.

Kind 1 - Long Time) This is the bulk food emergency food supply, that you keep in, or near to, your abode, for you to eat for a long time hereafter.

It is the emergency preparedness food, that you can learn of in this page: long term food storage. These emergency foods might include vegetables, grains, and herbs that you get by gardening and farming.

Kind 2 - Gardening And Farming In A Safe And Set Spot) Survival foods, that you grow, before, while, or after, of the emergency came, comes from farming and gardening.

Kind 3 - Short Time) Emergency food rations, for a short emergency, that is over in a day or two, you keep in your 72 hour emergency survival kits, so click that link.

These will hold your emergency food and water. Generally they include either mres, or else freeze dry food.

The third short-time category holds cans, and also sweets, such as candy bars, that you can replace while they are in storage. That is because sugar is a preservative.

Cans do not last forever, but for a few years. The Mountain House company practically has a monopoly for freeze dry dehydrated emergency food. They do a whale of a job.

Kind 4 - On The Move) Emergency survival food, that you pick up while your abode is unstable. You can get emergency food supplies, by either hunting, trapping, fishing, foraging for plants, and foraging for leapin straightwings.

Global emergency food kits will last for a while, and, after that, you must rely upon your skills and your knowledge of beasts, plants, and beasties.

"Meals, Ready-To-Eat", have been made for the US military, to be more interesting menus than freeze dry food, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The recipes include a variety of food that will last in food storage for 3-4 years, more if cooler, less if warmer. An MRE meal will save you the time and trouble of foraging, and, since it has its own flameless heat source, will save you the time and trouble of making a fire.

As an emergency survival ration, you may want to consider including them in your survival kits.

MRE food has not been reported to be the best meal for food's flavor, but they save you time, and they store well, though not as long as freeze dry.

The containers are indestructible, and non-reflective.

I suppose that a good way, to guard your own food supply, and that of your neighbors, against marauders, would be to get your neighborhood to make a large food pantry and food banks, for the needy. If marauders, or even needy and meek folks, come, then there will be the abundance of food, to avoid problems.

If they don't come, then there will be so much more for the rest of the neighborhood.

Hunting and God: Hunting And Shooting Outdoors With A Gun Or A Bow

Family Survivors is a mostly Biblical website, so we are concerned only with the kind of game, that our Heavenly Father has promised always to provide for us, so long as we obey his laws.

Therefore, we are concerned only with hooved ruminants, and birds. Not with bears, coons, muskrats, boar, possum. All the latter have been forbidden to us, and, if we should hunt them, we would be punished with disasters and malaise in our land.

Always spill all of the animal's blood on the ground, as soon as you have killed him.

11 Ways of Hunting with

Improvised, or Special,



1. Blowgun Hunting

52 Minute Travelogue

2. Bolas Hunting

Substitute chunks of stone or wood, or whatever you can scavenge. Aim for the legs of your prey. Don't forget to practice at home, before you go out into the wilderness.



3. Boomerang Hunting

4. (also short-range thrown stick)

In a stron wind, face between 45 and 90 degrees away from the direction of the wind, toward your throwin hand. In other words, throw to the right of the wind, if you will be throwin rightly handed.

Follow through with your arm after releasin the boomerang. Flick your wrist, just before releasin. Boomerang should tilt top-to-bottom about 35-55 degrees, but edge-to-edge should be straight on course.

From the videos, I get the notion that there are 2 kinds of boomerang, one for flocks of birds, and another for animaux on the ground.

Boomerangs are not easily made, but they are easily borne. Either you would brin one with you, or else would make one by hand in a lon-term base camp, but not in an emergency situation would you make a boomerang.

In an emergency, you would rather make a thrown stick, as in the next video down.

The thrown stick can be used for birds, or perhaps to stun a deer if you get close enough to him.

E-Book Plan For Attracting Deer To Your Land

Shopping Tips And Ideas For Hunting Gifts

Hunting Gear



Hunters have different assortment of equipment for hunting game. With the large variety of gadgets to choose from, finding the perfect hunting gift can be sometimes overwhelming. Maybe you want an item to store your hunting products or compass to direct you in the woods.

The true worth of a gift is in its simplicity. Simplicity is the core of every civilization. So if your old man has hunting as one of his hobbies and you are wonderin which gift to get him on his birthday, then you might consider the followin options:


A folding knife

Image Of Hunting KnifeSince time immemorial, the knife has been known as the chief hunting tool.

In the lower Neolithic period, knives were made from curved stones and were used very often in hunting because of their precision in killin the prey.

A folding knife can be a perfect hunting gift if you are seeking to enrich one's hunting accessories.

Maybe you have shot a deer and it has not died completely. A folding knife can be used to finish the job. The knife is ideal as the name suggests as it can be easily be folded to fit in your pocket.

Since there are different types of folding knives for different purposes, be sure that the knife, that you buy, is for the kind of hunting, that your recipient is used to doin.

When you click on the image, above right, you will see an array of hunting knives for your selection!


If you are thinkin of givin ammunition, first find out exactly what kind of gun your recipient has. In my opinion, 308 is the best for large animals, such as deer, elk, antelope, bighorn sheep, or moose.

For bear, wolves, coyotes, or for big cats, I would much rather use great danes, than rifles, as our God has declared bear, dog, and cat meat to be unclean for us. Let the dogs have some fun, anyway.

The 308 ammunition is the perfect gift for an experienced hunter. It is the epitome of accuracy in hunting. For deer hunters, the 308 ammunition has an astonishin barrel life.

Loadin 308 bullets is relatively easy which is encouragin for even novice hunters. There is a great projectile and powder combination and a wide range of bullets to choose from.

The 308 guns are very light compared to other hunting guns. There are over twenty projectiles to choose from and the bullets are specifically tailored for hunting purposes. For example, the 150-grain range bullet is ideal for deer-sized game.

Hunting License

Getting a hunting license involves a lot of complicated procedures. It may sound unreal but a lifetime hunting license would be perfect hunting gift. Hunters have to renew their licences every year dependin on the game they hunt and the State rules. It is advisable you check with state authorities in your area to see if they offer the lifetime hunting licence

Field Gear

There are a variety of hunting accessories that hunters can find instrumental. They range from binoculars, GPS systems, cameras and clothing. These items can also be presented as gifts in case a hunter lacks one or need replacin. Next time you are wonderin which hunting gifts to buy, you will be more informed.

A good pair of hunting binoculars must have a good focus and a comfortable hold. Binoculars for searching, after game, are used in tough situations and they ought to be waterproof and rugged. The binocular’s vision power need to be high as in searching, after game, you must be able to see your goal plainly.

As hunting requires finding and tracking wild life that is very fast, highly cautious and hidden, the hunting binoculars really should have a wider objective lens.

When you are searching, after game, in early early morning or in twilight you need as much light as possible to enter your lens otherwise your efforts are a waste so it is better to choose a binocular with wider lens. A bigger objective lens means a bigger field of view and a larger exit pupil.

But in a game binocular higher magnification is only secondary to light and field of view, so it is better to choose a binocular with large objective lens and less magnification.

As hunting requires a lot of foot travel and hauling your gear, hunters prefer a light weight and smaller sized hunting binoculars. Experienced field and wood hunters prefer to choose a 8x42 which supplies good light and magnification. The mtn or the wide open terrain hunter prefers a 9x35 or 10x42.

You can find a wide range of searching binoculars in different brands and several price ranges.

kwd - trapping



Angling, that is fishing with a rod and, usually, a reel, is more of a sport, and is to be relied upon, in emergencies, only by those, who pursue it as a hobby regularly. Because it takes a lot of skill, knowledge, and practice.

There are other techniques, of catchin fishes, which may be more suitable to a "lay" fisherman, for emergencies only. Some of these are forbidden by the laws of the freemasonic government (a foreign power, led by the Duke of Kent) in the USA, so be canny about where you do it.

I suggest that you study how to set trot lines, dip nettin, broad nettin, trappin, and poisonin, to get more fishes more easily. Black walnut and butternut hulls will render fishes unconscious or dead, without harmin the eater thereof.

Durin the spawnin runs, fishes can be snagged with a treble hook and a sinker, at the end of a lon strin, or lenth of twine. Run out 3 feet from the hand, twirl it around a few times, and cast into the river, then jerk it back quickly. You may snag a fish. It is considered to be illegal by the illegal masonic government, so beware where you do it.

Here is an article, read the comments, about why snaggin should not be done durin times of law-and-order, but only in emergencies:

To do this topic justice, you must anticipate where you'll be, and study all the books, go out in the field and identify every plant you find, go to classes and field tours on the topic, and make friends with other who know about it.

Most of the food in the fertile spots on earth has not even been identified as food. I have some experience with the eastern middle USA, and I'll give to you some pointers that you will never find anywhere else, unless they got them from me:

1. Learn the most abundant and bulky plants first before the tiny rare ones.

2. Garlic mustard grows under the snow in the time of winter. Make note of where it grows in the fair days, so that you can find it under the snow later.

3. Kudzu new growth of leaves on the tips of the branches is quite good before they unfurl.

4. Greenbrier new unfurled leaves and new tendrils are good.

5. Poke greens have warnings about saponins (soap that is made inside the plant). I eat the leaves they are delicious, even eat them after the berries spring out. But in small sums not a big batch. No problem. I knew a lady in Arlington Virginia who belonged to a foraging club, she said they made pies of the pokeberries and had no bad results from them. Traditionally pokeberries have been said to have been inedible. I never tried them.

6. For good sums of vitamin C take your green pine needles or spruce needles, wash them, cut with scissors into some cold water. Or you could use a cutting board and a sharp cook's knife. Let them stand in the refrigerator half an hour and strain and drink. Delicious and you'll get all the vitamin C that you need.

You can tell spruce apart from like-looking kinds, by pulling off a few of the needles from the twig. In spruce there will be stubs left behind, whereas in other kinds the twig will be smoother.


7. Every flower is edible, so long it is not poisonous. If you know the poisonous flowers, then all the others are edible. Buttercups are said to be harmful.

8. The entire peony plant is edible. However it has a strong flavor and it produces more food than you can actually eat. Rather than peel the tough outer skin from the pith of the stems, I like to split them and use them in a broth. Or you could split the stem and gouge out the pith and eat it cooked.

You can eat the tender leaves cooked, and use the tougher ones to add nutrition to a broth then throw them out before eating as you would with a bay leaf. The tubers are edible cooked, but the flavor has to be dilute in other more bulky foods.

In Chinese medicine it is said to help against lumbago.

9. Don't forget to add your sassafrass leaves to season your cooking, it will give more nutrition. Anything you can't digest you can chew and swallow the juice then spit out the fiber. Acadians in Luzianne call the leaves "filé" or "filé gumbo" and they are used to season gumbo.

10. Spicebush is very abundant. Use the leaves and berries for seasoning and to add more nutrition.

11. Use the whole chicory plant. The leaves are edible. They are very bitter, so unless you are a hardy eater, chop them up and add to salads or to cooked vegetable stews, casseroles and the others. Use them both raw and cooked, each state has its own virtues. Make broth of the stems. Eat the buds. If the roots are tender you can cook and eat them, if they are bigger and tougher, then use them to make broth or tea.

13. I eat Queen Anne's lace leaves even though they taste of turpentine.

14. Cook maple seeds like peas.

15. Tap the sap of sycamore trees to get the minerals. It's also a good source of emergency water.

16. Always look on the underside of leaves for spots that may be parasites or eggs of insects.

17. Johnson grass makes good hay. You can eat the seeds like wheat. I never tried it because I couldn't tell when to harvest it, having no experience with grains.

18. Eat wild rose hips in the time of winter.

19. Lamb's quarters suffers from the slightest drought, so eat all you can early in the season.

20. Purple sumach berries -- get all you can early in the season. There is some kind of material in the middle of the cluster that rots during the season and it is very hard to clean it out from the rest of the cluster. Make sour tea of them. Turks use them to season meat or other foods.

21. I have seen quinces growing sometimes. They are sour. So you cook them and sweeten them. You should learn how to ID them, because you might find some.

22. May apples and pawpaws are suddenly ripe and the critters snatch them all up, so if you want them, note where they are and check them daily. They are bad tastin until that one day, but wait until a few hours later and they would be gone unless you get to them first. But if you get them at the right state, then they are incredibly delicious.

23. Don't forget your day lily tubers. Cook them. And you can eat the flowers. They have a hot flavor. I see big stands of them in the wild, not far from homes.

24. Whatever you take is going to grow back more, so long as you don't take the whole plant, or the whole stand. It probably helps the quality of the food if you thin out a stand, for instance day lily tubers. So take take take, just leave some to replenish itself.

25. Cut the thorns off of the thistle leaves and eat them, if you have to.

26. Prickly pear fruits are yummy. Cook the pads and scrape out the flesh from the inside. Kind of hard to handle because of the pesky little prickles all over the pads. Maybe leather gloves? Maybe rubber gloves would work?

27. Don't await emergencies to eat all of these foods, make them to be a bit of your weekly food.


Farming and Gardening

Mulch -- When you put enough mulch, couple years ahead of time, you never have pests nor diseases in the plants. However strawberries have been known to need some attention even with the mulching system.

Ruth Stout was a pioneer in getting rid of needless chemicaux as promoted by the manufacturers of them.

I once had an apple orchard, and went to "Apple School" a free weekend at a resort in the Blue Ridge Mountains ("apple land"). The "teachers" taught the poor uneducated orchardists that they must spray the trees to get the flowers to come out, another time to get the flowers to fall off, another time...28 times they had to spray, not just to kill pests, but just to make the tree perform its ordinary functions.

The state representative of Virginia Polytechnic Institute was at the classes to approve everything that they said. All the official folks endorsed the method taught there. Fortunately I had already read Ruth Stout's book and I therefore knew that what they were teaching there was bunk.

The seeds used by the farmers were developed by VPI, Virginia Polytechnic Institute. Did they develop apple seeds that were resistant to pests? No, they developed seeds that were dependent upon sprays. Something really funny was going on.

It turns out that the school was sponsored by the company that manufactured the chemicals that were used in the sprays. They were sold in the local Southern States Coop. I had some old Organic Gardening magazines and took them to the office of our local extention agent from VPI, and offered to give them for her to share with the growers in contact with her.

She became very angry and tried to say "We don't do that here" but stammered over her words, she ws so upset. I learned later that her husband was the manager of the Southern States Coop that sold the chemicaux. We had a jumbo conpiracy here Image of Ruth Stout No Work Garden Bookinvolving the Commonwealth of Virginia (Virginia Polytechnic Institute and the extention agent) the chemical manufacturers, and Southern States Coop.

If you want to find out more details ant a lot of great tips by Ruth from her decades of experience, then click on the image of the book, and it will take you to an ordering page with lots of customer reviews of the book.

Natural Farming -- I just made up this term to denote the concept that you set apart a bit of your land and let it grow wild, then eat the "weeds" which aren't really weeds at all but they are food and medicine. Then you manage by thinning and mulching and watering where necessary. Thinning means you harvest and use the plants, or else give them away or preserve them. To learn more about this see my instructions and tips here.




Insects: Leaping Straightwings (Order: Orthoptera)

God, in the Bible, says that these are good foods for us to eat, provided that we have refused to be vegetarians -- grasshoppers, crickets, locusts, cicadas, except those, such as the mole cricket, that do not jump.

He said, also, that he will see to it that, in times of emergency, his servants will not be forced to eat forbidden foods, such as rats, spiders, snakes, squirrels, and so on, which, if we eat them, brins down curses on our land.

Here is how to make them ready, to be eaten. Take off the head and the appendages, then roast them awhile. After they will have been roasted, then pinch the pointed end at the rear, and pull upon it, so that the guts come out in a curly strand.

Now are they ready to be eaten.

John the Baptist lived upon honey and locusts while he was out in the wilderness. Many times the growers have seen the swarms of grasshoppers or locusts fall on their crops and call out "Alas, the food will be ruined!". But these insects ARE food, so just switch your menu if they happen along.
