Have soap and water handy to clean the meat and use a healthy dose of chipotle seasoning. Cook it well done.
That's funny and yet informative at the same time. I was thinking of the two-legged kind of skunks. They're kind of stringy and hard to cook.

I don't think running is the answer. I think that somehow we need to find a way to unite all gun owners, concealed carriers, hunters, etc that are not afraid to stand up in our HOME TOWNS for what is right. Maybe it'll resort to some type of underground militcia, but I feel that, if takeover comes, we'll have to resort to nearly one-on-one, group-against-group, and hand-to-hand combat to protect our way of life. Remember, in the 40's Japan would not attact our homeland with ground forces because of the fear they had of the millions of Americans with guns. Patriotic Americans need to find a way to securely communicate, meet, whatever is necessary if we have to fight a tyrannical government. Don't think it'll ever happen, but we need to assume it COULD HAPPEN and be ready. There's millions of us - we just gotta figure out how to unite town by town and city by city. Sure, our government could bomb us or nuke us, but surely reason will prevail withing our government. All they need to do is study American history and act accordingly.

It has been my experience that our men and women in uniform take their oath as solid. The same can NOT be said for the politicians who took their oath of office. In some of the scenerios we are talking about, one could argue that the political leaders are the ones who cause the SHTF situation and that is the reason why people are headding for the hills. What do you do then? There is a lot of uncertainty in the world right now and a lot of it is domestic. What happens when power is unaffordable, infrastructure breaks down, and government checks stop?

I have killed and sampled almost all of the things that run in the woods around here. I have a couple books from an old friend that outlines common dishes the Iroquois ate. Since they were in the very same valley I live in, I have tried many of them. Seasoning makes most of them good. Without seasoning, you can eat all of it.....but it tastes like CRAP!
I am incredibly fortunate in that there are a LOT of turkey, canadian geese, rabbits, and deer in the area. I also have a nice collection of dutch ovens. There is a guy up the road who is a retired NYC cop. He still has all of his family (kids, brothers, sisters, etc) that live in the city. He said if the SHTF he is running back to the city and has asked that I look after his farm. If he aint back or I dont hear from him in a month or so, assume he is elsewhere or gone. He has goats, cows, chickens, and a few sheep. Thats a LOT of food on the hoof at my disposal too.

I don't know about heading for "the hills"; some of us would be bugging out to "the swampy woods". I would bet zombies make terrible time in the swamp; for one thing, gators like their meat tenderized.


I'm LOLing here at the thought of a PO'd water mocassin reapeatedly biting a zombie with no idea why it won't go down.

I don't see a zombie being able to bite through gator hide. I also don't see how they could get much worse except for their current temperature regulation weakness. Luckily, the swamps around here are mostly small with smaller gators.

My thought is to invite my friends from the FTF to join me in the hills and deep woods of TN here at the house. And establish a camp here on the hill. Plenty of wild game, fish, plants, berries and other items close. Safety in numbers as the old saying goes. And just like my past days in the army, perimeter patrols, guard duty, and perimeter alarms. Sounds crazy but I bet we would also have enough ammunition and weapons to hold off a small army. As far as food, a lot of beans, potatoes, rice, wildlife such as deer, turkeys, squirrel, rabbits, coon and fish and also ground to plant on, plus housing. I have the house the basement, the office and garage and storage garage which we can make a bunk house our of it! If it happens give me a call and come on down! They can run but they will only die tired! They did not teach us to fight fair only to win!

There is no fighting fair when it comes to survival.

Head for the hills, what hills? All property, and I mean all, is owned by someone, be it private or government land.
