Comments Off on How to Cure Meat in the Field

When most people go hunting, they are able to quickly field dress any animals they are able to kill, and either take them home or to a processor to be properly butchered.  For many people, especially those in survival situations, this is not an option.  Being able to properly cure your meat in the field will allow it to last for significantly longer without going bad, which could be life saving. In order to properly preserve meat, you need to act as quickly as possible after a successful hunt.  You need to have raw meat either frozen, smoked or dried so that it won’t go bad.  During the winter months, it is possible to allow the meat to freeze without […]

Comments Off on How To: Start a Food Storage Program

If you want to be truly ready for any disaster or emergency situation, you need to make sure you have enough food and water stored away for you and your family to survive on until the disaster is over, or you can establish other sources of food. Depending on your geographic location, the number of people in your family, and other factors, you’ll typically need 3-12 months of food stored up.  Some factors to consider are the ages of those in your family, how skilled you are at gathering food from the wild, and things like that. While it may seem overwhelming to try to build up 3-12 months of food for your entire family, it doesn’t have to happen […]

Meals Ready to Eat, or MREs were first developed for the United States Military in the late 1970’s, with the first pack being delivered in 1981.  The military was looking for a solution to the problem of keeping solders fed in virtually any situation.  Whether on the front lines of battle, or stationed in a remote area, having a food which could be stored for years, air-dropped in or just carried conveniently was extremely important for the survival of military personal. The History of MRE Meals The first version of the MRE’s were given to the 25th Infantry Division in 1981.  This division lived on this food for 34 days, consuming nothing but these MRE’s.  While the troops rated the […]

Aquaponics – A Near Closed Loop Food System

When it comes to disaster preparation there is really no such thing as being too ready for any situation.  The fact is, however, that no matter how much food you’re storing, it won’t be enough to feed yourself and your family forever.  Eventually you’ll need to find an outside source of food to provide enough nutrients to survive on indefinitely.  While the obvious answer is to grow and hunt for food until civilization can reemerge, that may not always be possible.  What if the emergency has rendered the soil unusable or the emergency is a famine.  In addition, growing and even hunting for food can be much more difficult and even dangerous in the winters. One solution to consider is […]

Comments Off on The 6 C’s of Hunting for Food

The 6 C’s of Hunting for Food In this day and age, hunting is rarely used as a sole source of food for the family. Today, we use the grocery store to procure what we need whether it be meat or some other byproduct from an animal. Let’s be honest, it is a lot easier to run to the supermarket to grab what you need versus gearing up for a hunt in the woods. There is nothing wrong with that. It is certainly a perk of living in modern times. However, there are some real benefits to using hunting as one of the main ways of putting food on the table. Sure, you will still need to hit the grocery […]

Do the new highs on the stock market indicate that our country is no longer in danger?  I believe that America’s mounting debts (particularly our federal government’s debts) will cause our creditors to abandon the dollar. It will not be a deliberate effort to kill our economy, but in an effort to cut their exposure to inflation that results as the US prints trillions of dollars to repay its debts. In this scenario, the U.S. dollar would lose its standing as the world’s reserve currency, causing financial, political, and massive social problems, including the devaluation of the US dollar. The question to ask is what the 48 million people who depend on food stamps and government handouts would do if a crisis […]

Comments Off on Preppers Emergency Food Supply

The Importance of Emergency Food Supply When a disaster strikes, you will lose some of your essential facilities. You will more than likely lose electricity, hence no refrigeration and even in some cases no gas may be available. This state may last for a while depending on the extent of the damage caused so does that mean that we do not eat during those times? Of course not! This is where emergency food supply comes in. During those trying times we need strong high – energy, non – perishable, no – preparation food for short – term aid. Likewise if you require this same type of non –perishable food for long periods or even if you are just a big […]
