Hello,

Does anyone know of any people who are gathering and / or hunting a significant portion of their diet? Specifically I am interested in learning from these people and am curious to find those who would be interested in sharing experiences on this topic. Whether that be an afternoon with someone, or having an apprenticeship, either way I am very curious about this. I have experience and could share a list of relevant skills and experience, upon request. Temperate climates, with the US would be of greatest interest as I live in the north east mainly.

Many thanks.

_S

I think these folks live for extended periods by hunting and foraging: http://www.lynxvilden.com/

One of the biggest issues you have is that the environments are NOT suitable for this.
You would really have to build from scratch such an environment.
This is one area I am interested. I am in the process of trying to collect plant material to test for use in a edible forest system.
Some of the plant others call invasive are ideal for such a system.
Also you have the question of harvesting. Do you harvest or use animals that can forage to harvest.
many things to think about on such a system
