Whether you are faced with an extreme survival situation or you want to obtain animals without hunting or trapping, this book will show you how to find, process, and preserve meat with nothing but a knife. In a long-term survival situation, finding a dead deer, wild boar, or a large amount of fish, will do more than nearly anything else to provide necessary, concentrated sources of calories and protein. Having such a resource becomes even more valuable when there are a number of people to feed.
Using guidelines that are well tested and easy to follow, Tamarack shows you how to assess an animal carcass to determine whether it is safe to eat-a vital skill that could mean the difference between life and death. There are also special sections on roadkill and making pemmican-the most nourishing and long lasting survival food.
In a survival situation, this is one book you don’t want to be without. It belongs in every backpack, glove compartment, and survival kit, so it will be there when you need it.
