The Hunter Gatherer Path will cover every aspect of food procurement that you need to know for your survival needs. Survival is a lazy man’s game! The goal is to burn less calories than you expend daily.
Your survival diet will change dramatically based on where you are in the world, and having good food source will make a huge difference in performance, when surviving. You have to remember that everything is seasonal when dealing with wild foods and different times of the year require different types of food to operate well.
In this path we will cover everything from fishing, hunting, trapping, and foraging. Foraging will be covered throughout each phase of the Hunter Gatherer Path. Animal processing will be covered with trapping, but for full details on butchering check out our Sustainability Path.
