My first experience with a bow was at camp a couple decades ago as a child and it involved terrible plastic things, no instruction, and major failure. I'm great with firearms, but I kind of wanted to dial it back away from gunpowder and such and... (more)
I want to start hunting for food, I don't really want to spend money on a gun and I live in CT were gun control is becoming stricter after sandy hook. Im thinking about making my own hunting equipment. Does anyone have advice for making spears... (more)
Is it safe/legal to hunt critters like rats or pigeons and other "urban game"? or is it best to be avoided since they might be dirty and eat SAD garbage (but then when you think about it, most commercial animals also eat a diet of SAD garbage) or... (more)
Hello Warriors! So...I need some recommendations. I've been buying duck, bison and elk when I can - but I REALLY want meats from my childhood - venison and rabbit! YUM! However, I am having a REALLY hard time finding a way to obtain these since I... (more)
A friend of mine, an archaeologist, told me about Ghenghis Khan and his diet. Apparently, while being pregnant, his mother ate only meat (his father had herds of some animals, not sure). They lived in Mongolia, where all the animals are... (more)
Christopher McCandless tried... I think he only made it 4 months before death by starvation. Part of the problem is that we (1) Do not pass down the skills necessary to live off the land; (2) No longer have land to live off of.
From the Third Chimpanzee: ???The mystique of Man the Hunter is now so rooted in us that it is hard to abandon our belief in its long-standing importance. Today, shooting a big animal is regarded as an ultimate expression of macho masculinity.... (more)
Do you garden or raise some of your own animal food? What do you grow or raise? How much of your diet does it account for? Also - do you gather, hunt or fish? Do you eat the weeds (the edible ones) in your yard/garden? Does this contribute... (more)
I know there is a low-carb cruise, but is there a paleo cruise? It would be really cool to go on a cruise that features different paleo/ primal meal options, like a strict Whole9 buffet section, a "safe starch" section, and maybe like a GAPS... (more)
i was wondering if people love turkey legs, thighs and wings as much as i do... i notice they don't get much love in the paleo world and i don't really know why. also i have tons of wild turkeys running around my yard and would love a free meal... (more)
I'm very interested in hunting, but I have no experience at all! Who here hunts? Is it difficult? Does it pay off? Where do you hunt? Cuz I wanna look like these guys : In other words, just tell me about your experiences with hunting! (more)
Ok, this is kind of a complicated question and I'm pretty ignorant about this, but please chime in if you are familiar with this subject. I was watching Hogs Gone Wild on netflix, and granted the drama is probably amped up for TV, but they explain... (more)
I've always thrown out the spinal bones of the deer I harvest due to concerns over chronic wasting disease. Am I being overly cautious? There have been no confirmed cases in my state; however it isn???t far from states/provinces where there have... (more)
To me this is the true litmus test of Paleo. Some of us are natural born due to genotype Hunters and really would kill an animal for food in order to survive. I must admit, I would only likely kill a rabbit, squirrel, deer etc-- not sure if I... (more)
I just watched a very interesting Ted talk by Christopher McDougall, author of "Born to Run". Here's the link to the video. (I've also read the book which is very interesting) His whole thing is about barefoot running, but the setup is what I... (more)
There is big difference in hunting 2 times per week (probably different runner every hunt) and resting / low intensity for rest of the time and running 1+ hr 5+ times per week with 8+ hr jobs.
What are your favorite resources for learning how to live off the land in the wilderness, trapping, hunting, safe foraging, shelter... Modern caveman camping
In paleo times, we probably spent a fair amount of time wandering around looking for resources, be it food, water, or materials for toolmaking or shelters. Perhaps time was even spent collecting materials for artistic endeavors like cave... (more)
I'm going to a class today about hunting and field-dressing deer (in Manhattan!). I'll obviously have some expertise on the subject by this evening, which I'll happily post. Meantime: Does anyone have some good venison hacks? Favorite parts for... (more)
hello, everyone, hope someone can point me to a right direction. i live in SF (the mission) and buy all my meat via co-ops, butcher shops, or online - everything grass fed/pasture raised etc. but it's not enough. problem 1 is that so much of the... (more)
I enjoy hunting and think it's a great way to get high quality meat. It's also a great way to experience primal instinct in its greatest form. I was just wondering if anyone else on the forum takes up hunting. What are people's thoughts on... (more)
You can watch arctic explorer Brue Parry eat it in the far north of Greenland. It is a well made programme. http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00xjyfx/Arctic_with_Bruce_Parry_Greenland/ You can watch it for the next three weeks online. ... (more)
Things like this are why I'm glad I'm alive in this day and age. I don't HAVE to eat the funky stuff. Squeamish? Maybe, but day by day in every way, I'm glad I can eat steaks and not have to eat eyeballs and internals...
