About the Study Guide

Hunting to provide food

Humans can go for two weeks or more without food. Although the need for food is not that urgent, you’ll be more comfortable and clear-headed if you eat. Anywhere there is game, there is food, but probably not what you’re accustomed to eating.

Before you head into a remote area, it’s a good idea to learn what’s edible in that particular region. Hopefully, you’ll be able to use your hunting equipment to harvest the bulk of your food.
