Follow the birds

by Seth

Birds will almost always lead you to food (berries, bugs, plants) water, and dry places to sit and eat your bounty.

And always remember, survival is not for the squemish, in a survival situation you may need to eat things that on a normal day would make you puke just thinking about it (worms, grubs, guts, you get the picture).

For those of you who may be squeamish about eating earth worms, here's a way to do it. Dry the worms in the sun or an oven first. Once competely dry, crush into a powder. Sprinkle this powder in a soup. Worms are an excellent source of protein.

Bob appetite.

Cooking with clay

by Jim T
(London Ont. Canada)

While on a 2 week canoe survival trip, I had the chance to cook a porcupine for my supper. After gutting it, I filled the cavity with wild garlic and some burdock, and with great care, I commenced to wrap the whole thing in clay (found by the bank).

By this time, my fire (started before gutting) had sufficient coals to cook by. I made a depression in the middle of the coals and placed the whole thing in the middle of it and covered it with the remaining coals over it and restarted a fire over the top.

By the time I had the camp set up, the sun was going down, and I was ready to have supper. Using a couple of forked sticks, I remove the clay vessel from the fire. Splitting the clay from tip to end, gave me two platters of bake porcupine with all the quills trapped in the clay. Tasted better than chicken.


Prepare for your wilderness adventure.
