This is where, as a permie, I would take a serious look at the dietary diversity and history of the native cultures of your region. Somehow, all of those indigenous cultures were grooving along just fine without Euro foods. (Wife and I joke about how all the "fun" foods came from the New World. After eating only root crops for centuries, is there any wonder why Europe went through so many wars?? ) I'm betting Mr. Wu would love to do the library runs and internet searches for you on alternative replacement sources of fat and protein for surviving your climate.

Maybe the deer will stand a chance after all? :
