When a lot of people think or talk of habits, they mean the bad ones: smoking, drunkenness, voting, etc. But there are many habits that literally pay you for your adherence. Some can change your thinking and outlook and supercharge your motivation.

 

Erica wrote out a terrific list of habits we should all get into. Find her work (with full explanation and more) at the cool Living Life in Rural Iowa blog. I just found the website and I plan to go back frequently. You should to.

Learn to use and build the following habits/skills:

 

  1. Get organized. Just about everyone has room for improvement here.

 

  1. Be Proactive. Don’t wait until you have to act. Do it now. Get ahead.

 

  1. Stay healthy. This is your most important resource and one of the easiest to control.

 

  1. Keep learning. Always be building new skills.

 

  1. Learn Better Communication.

 

  1. Live without Debt. The debtor is the servant of the creditor. Do you want to be someone’s (anyone’s) servant? No.

 

  1. Follow a routine. Set one according to your needs and follow it to happiness.

 

  1. Practice. Whatever it is, practice makes perfect – or at least better.

 

  1. Sustainability. It’s not just a buzzword for colleges and SJWs.

 

  1. More is less. Use it up; wear it out; make it do, or: do without. Words to live better by.

 

They say skills trump stuff. I think they’re right. And, habits are like super skills. They allow for the building of better prepping skills in all areas. Follow and adopt the foregoing for success.

Get Your Game On! Wild Game Butchering and Cooking

Get Your Game On! Wild Game Butchering and Cooking

 

Well, this one is slightly out of season in the Northern Hemisphere. We don’t start the hunts for a few more months. But, if your in New Zealand, I think Red Stag season opens any day, right? Anyway, today we discuss and present a subject that more preppers and survivalists need to know about if they don’t already. Veteran hunters may stop here and now.

 

This one is all about cleaning, preparing, and cooking wild game! Bill White at Survivopedia kindly wrote up an extensive guide to game prep. And I mean extensive with a capital ‚ÄúE.‚ÄĚ Make sure to read through the original at least once. Save it for when hunting season comes around.

 

Here’s a quick look at some of what is included:

So, this article really isn‚Äôt about hunting nor ‚Äúpure‚ÄĚ prepping. It‚Äôs about food security. Rural folks will still tell you that hunting and trapping (and fishing) still go a long way toward putting meat on the table. That‚Äôs important, especially if you find yourself in a survival situation. Read on:

 

“Within the prepping community, we see this manifest in how people deal with their need for food. At the beginning, we all start out with building a food stockpile. But as time goes on, we tend to start looking at various ways of supplementing that stockpile, such as raising our own food, foraging for edible plants and hunting.



For those of us who are hunters, it makes sense to hunt for food. But what about those who are not? Granted, anyone who can shoot a rifle accurately can kill an animal, assuming they can find one to kill. That’s the hard part of hunting and the one that will give most post-apocalyptical hunters the most trouble.





The other thing you‚Äôre going to have to know how to do is turn that dead animal into usable meat, once you kill it. Killing an animal is one thing, butchering it is another thing entirely. If you don‚Äôt do that correctly, the meat could be tainted and dangerous to eat.‚ÄĚ

-White

 

Follow along with White as he discusses:

 

Hunting background;

 

Cleanliness;

 

(He assumes you’ve already brought down the animal);

 

Cleaning (Gutting and Skinning);

 

Necessary knives and tools;

 

Cutting procedures; this gets tricky, ‚Äúicky‚ÄĚ even, read and operate carefully. Perrin will add: watch the bladder and lower GI tract ‚Ķ yeah;

 

Blood disposition (get used to it);

 

All about birds (don’t run afoul…);

 

Skinning techniques;

 

Butchering (great chart! and more are available online);

 

Cooking in the Wild (like on the bug out trail);

 

Smoking (the meat but a cigar);


Jerking (not a Steve Martin movie);

 

He also includes a video, downloads, and more tips than one can almost keep up with. Many thanks to Bill White*.


*Bill White is the author of Conquering the Coming Collapse, and a former Army officer, manufacturing engineer and business manager. More recently, he left the business world to work as a cross-cultural missionary on the Mexico border. Bill has been a survivalist since the 1970s, when the nation was in the latter days of the Cold War. He had determined to head into the Colorado Rockies, should Washington ever decide to push the button. While those days have passed, the knowledge Bill gained during that time hasn’t. He now works to educate others on the risks that exist in our society and how to prepare to meet them.

 

Again, you may not need this information for a few months. But, if you get serious about hunting and/or survivalism, then you will need it.
