Knowing how to hunt and purchasing all of the necessary weaponry to do so, in triplicate, is a long-standing prepper concept as well. Learning how to trap, and maybe more importantly, how to make traps out of found items, could also one day save your life. Relying too heavily on any one way to garner food would likely be a deadly mistake.
All too often I have heard folks in my rural area say that if a TEOTWAWKI disaster does strike, they will just go hunting. Leasing land to hunters during the various seasons is a big business in my region. Deer and turkey abound, so much so that the fire departments in the county can barely go a single week without being paged out for a wildlife-involved car accident.
Although the deer, turkeys, wild boars, and pesky coyotes frolic readily in our beautiful Appalachian hills now, the land would become played out in rapid fashion if everybody and their brother and their cousin and the infamous marauding hordes suddenly took to the woods in search of Bambi and her forest friends.
