I wonder if the topic survival hunting means short term vrs TEOTWAWKI,in the latter I think hunting game would be pretty useless,it would be gone so fast as to be moot IMO.

Like said,eating weeds,AKA Euell Gibbons,and bugs is a more realistic survival tool.

Of all the training I would like,recognizing wild vegetable food sources is the course I want.

Im also thinking,that could be a fine source of income teaching such a class,now where do I get the training,anyone have a source?

The smart "survival hunter" always hunts at the stockyards.

be sure to include some form of fish gathering equipment...if you live near any river or estuary... a good cast net for schooling fish, or a large treble hook for snatching those out of reach... trot line...wire traps for blue crab, crawfish...small mesh dip net for gathering bait.... a 100 pack of suitible sized hooks can produce more protein than a 100 pack of .22lr..

I consider hunting/snaring to be a tactic for SHTF for an extended period. Many folks have little experience & skill and this would be a negative calorie activity. I occasionally try snaring.

That said, a .177 air rifle or .22LR are my preferences for small game. I am setting aside change for an AR-7 and will afford one eventually.
