  • Squirrel hunting. Hunting for squirrel is an easy way to get
    meat on the table in hard times, but you'll need to relax your
    aim and not waste bullets. Head to the woods with your rifle
    in the early fall where you'll find squirrel around the acorn,
    beechnut and hickory nut trees, but also ash oak and
    sycamores. Walk quietly with the sun at your back and use
    your ears and scan for movement. Set traps for backup!

What to add to your first aid kit:

  • Bite and sting kit. Hunting in the back woods? Venomous
    snakes in the deep woods could present a serious problem.
    Your only fighting chance is a bite extractor! The large
    syringe easily extracts venom.

  • Quick Clot. Stop bleeding fast! QuikClot Sport hemostatic
    agent is the same hemostatic agent used by the US military,
    federal agencies, EMS, police and fire departments,

  • Compact disposable towels. As part of your hunting first aid
    kit, include compact disposable towels or toilet paper
    tablets. These are made of compressed material that
    expands with water. All you need is a few drops of water and
    you will have a wet towel instantly to clean up a wound or to
    clean up after the messy part of hunting. They are
    biodegradable. EZ towel will get you clean in no time
    following hunting of fishing.

#6: Push parasites out of your system.
Fresh green black walnut wormwood complex, pictured right,
treats parasites. During a survival situation, you may be hunting
and unable to provide a stable source of fresh drinking water.
Have a plan to clear parasites out of the body with Fresh
Black Walnut Wormwood Complex, pictured right.

This powerful extract, derived from the hulls of green black
walnuts, is a centuries old herbal tonic to promote healthy
microbial activity. Fresh green black walnut wormwood complex
comes recommended by
The Patriot Nurse in a survival situation
for those who plan on hunting.

#5: Take cover with Kevlar shooting gloves.
Find gloves with a tight comfortable fit to protects the skin while
target shooting, and to keep you warmer in cold weather. The
Kevlar hutch shooting gloves, pictured right, are heat and flame
proof up to 700 Fahrenheit!  What's more, the low cuff stays
eases your release. They're available in five sizes. Take note that
anything made of
Kevlar has an expiration date for maximum

#6: Roll away with the prize.
Roll your downed deer out effortlessly. This is how preppers and
survivalists roll:
Guide Gear Aluminum Deer Cart. It hauls up to
250 lbs. Use it to roll your tree stand and gear too. This
balanced, aluminum Cart is Herculean strong with zero weight on
the handle. The silent, puncture-proof, 16" solid rubber spoked
wheels easily roll over the roughest terrain, dead falls, small
streams and just about anything else in the way. A lot of our pals
used to drag downed deer out of the deep back country with rope,
back-breaking oomph and plenty of muscle. It takes that big
trophy out of the deep woods with little effort. Folds flat like a
pancake in seconds to fit in your vehicle or for compact storage.
Cargo area is 19 x 64" h., weighs 21 1/2 lbs. Anti-reflective finish.
What a drag it would be if you missed this golden opportunity to
cart a deer. Order this dependable transporter now. It's great for
deer, antelope, hogs and other game species, and so is the
Mag lift, pictured right. This essential piece of hunting equipment
includes a 40-foot-long tangle-proof, rot-resistant rope and a 4-
pulley 4:1 ratio lift system.
Hunting in hard times
Useful stuff for hunting

Hunting gear and supplies for preppers.
Humans are hardwired for hunting! We are hunters and gatherers,
but hunting for sport is vastly different from hunting to sustain
life. In hard times, you'll be hunting to sustain life! You'll be
competing with others for the same resources, so you'll need to
be an experienced hunter, be in your prime, and have all the right
gear. Hunting for the right hunting tools to take home dinner in
an apocalyptic world? Below are some unusual ideas you may not
have considered regarding your survival gear...

Hunting Gear for Hard Times
Don't get too fancy on hunting gear when hunting season comes
around. Start with a good pair of boots, a hard-working rifle then
maybe throw in a game call and control your scent. Knowledge
weighs nothing and what you know is much more important than
what you bring! The story is a bit different when hunting is for
survival. You will need to plan ahead and think differently when it
comes to getting meat on your plate in hard times. You'll need an
edge because others will be hunting for the same resources.

Gain the survival edge by having the best hunting gear you can
afford. Be sure to back your skills with a larder of grains to
supplement, and be sure you know how to dry your meat in case
refrigeration isn't an option.

What will you need hunting in hard times?

#1: Grab a good pair of hunting boots.
You're nothing on the hunt without a good pair of hunting boots.
It's probably the most important of all the hunting gear you'll own
because if your feet aren't' comfortable, neither are you. In hard
times you won't be able to afford to get new boots or there won't
be any stores to get them.

Pioneers of the past knew the importance of leaving enough game
in the forests to reproduce for the following season. The rules will
change in an apocalyptic world where mass starvation may
suddenly force everyone to compete for the same game. You'll go
deeper into the forests and further away from your bug out
location or homestead to secure meat for your family or group.
You'll need a good pair of boots.

In addition to getting a good pair of boots, be sure to pack some
moleskin. Another tip is to
wear pantyhose underneath socks to
prevent friction. Here are tips so also
don't get trench foot.

#2: Mask human odor with Scent Killer.
Smell like dirt! Scent Killer Autumn Formula spray is a high-
powered human odor elimination blend. It erases your human
scent and replaces it with the autumn woods and fields. If deer
can't smell you, you'll have a close range opportunity to get

  • Fun prepper fact: Native American Sweat lodges had a
    purpose that you may not have been aware... While certainly
    there was a spiritual side of partaking in the sweat houses,
    the main reason actually was for men to prepare for the
    hunt. How did this help? Well, the hunters claimed the
    animals would not be able to smell human and thereby they
    could get closer to their prey.

#3: Get your game on with game calls.
Spend less time scoping things out and bring game in close range
with a game call

#4: Bait them with deer corn and salt licks.
Order dinner to your doorstep: bait deer to your property with
deer corn! While this may be a current restriction in your area, for
your survival you must consider every detail of a world without
rule of law. Under ordinary circumstances, deer corn my be illegal,
but all is fair when you're trying to survive.

#5: Fixate on a first-class first aid kit.
Immediate treatment and sustained treatment are two aspects of
consideration when planning your hunting first aid kit. The
Renegade Survival First Aid kit is approved by emergency nurses
and medics and it was created at the request of Elite military
units desiring a more compact and light kit for their daily field
operations. The
Hunter Safety Kit, pictured right, is a major
trauma kit in a small package that can deal with arterial bleeds,
major lacerations and most gunshot wounds. This kit includes an
Immediate Action Card to keep the focus where it belongs in a
hunting emergency.

Small Game Traps

#7: Step up your small game with a small game trap.
Here's a catchy idea: a simple bait and "crawl in, can't crawl out"
design bags small game like nobody's business.

Crafted in a heavy-duty galvanized steel construction, these
game traps have a hinged bottom for easy removal. They are
permanently re-usable and sized for rats, squirrels and
chipmunks. Price is for two, as pictured lower right hand corner of
the page. Of course, this take emergency preparedness to an all
new survival level. You must be willing to eat and know how to
butcher game.

#8: Hoppes to it (and get to cleaning your guns).
Hoppes Gun Cleaner and Gun Cleaning Kits are effective at
removing fouling from your weapons, and rough on carbon and
copper fouling, grease, and dirt. Best of all, Hoppes gun cleaner
is scent free, making it easy on the hands and lungs.

#10: Enjoy Hunter's Rotisserie & Spit Grill.
The hunter's rotisserie and spit grill, pictured directly below is a
back to basics tool. Start a fire, set the grill above the coals, and
in an hour you are ready to go.
