Default Do you have the ability to hunt and clean game?

Inspired by Lethargic. If supermarkets and such suddenly disappeared... would you have the ability to hunt for, and subsequently clean and cook your own game?

Poll coming...

Yes, but if supermarkets disappeared, I think we would quickly run out of wild game.

Now, no. But if it came down to my survival, I could hunt down the slow and weak, gut and clean them.

I spent 14 years of my life hunting in the winter and fishing in the summer. I think I'd survive.

That said, I think I'll go hunt the wiley burrito for lunch.

Poll coming...
I've seen it done enough times to do it without major incident. I've cleaned birds (Geese and duck) but nothing big like an elephant or whitetail.

I could gut a clean a human though...I've seen enough House and Scrubs to know what to do.

What kind of game?

Fish, fowl, dog, deer, squirrel...there are a lot of protein providing 'game' out there.
As well one does not have to eat game of any sort to secure protein nevermind that a lot of people live nowhere near for example deer and would have to 'hunt' for domestic animals if not alternate sources of protein.

Many folks do not live in the country or rural areas, and yet would somehow someway find a way to survive.

- Janq can and would hunt & clean 'game'

Road kill is easier....

But yes, I used to hunt back in the day but really decided that I just liked it for the guns.

As would I'm pretty sure many if not most.

There is so much food around everywhere even in cities be it dry and canned as well as live, there is little reason to go into a panic and be all OMG I'm not Danny Boone nor do I have a Buck knife so I'm screwed.

BTW just imagine as folks are today woods & forests with hundreds if not thousands of non-hunters running around trying to shoot and trap animals otherwise haviing no clue what they are doing. The smart money would be to avoid thos areas as the newbies shoot each other and trap themselves whilst the animals move on to other areas away from the influx of Polo cologne and flip flop wearing zombies shuffling around reenacting their own neighborhood version of Apocalypto

Cutting a bowel doesn't mean it's spoiled, it means you have to work really quickly. Best option is, if you cut a bowel of a deer while field dressing it, have a hunting partner hold it right side up (like the deer is standing) and gut it like that. It's a pain in the ass but everything falls out with gravity. Then make sure you really hose it down.

I concur. There would be no seasons, and people would shoot 7 deer a piece thinking they need that much when they probably only need 1 or 2 for the winter (if they have other food).

I live in the City but I know where the country is. I hunted every weekend for the past 2 months. Usually both days.

Nine can/has gutted cleaned and packaged Deer, Rabbits, Pheasant, Duck, Grouse*, Turkey, Chickens (not hunted), and a cow (also not hunted).

*These things are amazingly easy to gut. Just cut over where the ribs should be, cut the skin off. Pull it to each side, cut above the breast meat and below it (un"hooking" it from the body) and pull out a delicious piece of breast meat. It's like they were made to clean. You can seriously get the meat out in like 15 seconds.
