Hunter killing 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 read up on what’s edible in that particular region. Hopefully, you’ll be able to use your hunting equipment to harvest the bulk of your food.
  • It is always a good idea to carry extra food, such as energy bars, trail mix, and jerky, with you.
