Survival Food Summary Notes
- Probe rocks and logs for snakes.
- Look for fish in streams, rivers or lakes. Make a green whip/cordage hand net as you travel. Strong plant cordage may not need twisting.
- Watch for recently dead or injured animals, road kill, live domestic and farm animals.
- Hunt small animals by throwing sticks or rods.
- In ponds or rivers look for frogs, lizards, turtles or birds.
- Eat berries or nuts (NOT horse chestnut, green spiked covering over acorn-like nut).
- Snare rabbits in winter using cordage.
- Most meat or fish can be eaten raw for more nutrition but requires much bodily energy to digest and could be unsafe.
- Save birch bark (flammable).
- Use animal fat to protect your knife and your skin.
