  1. The animals have their own jungle-talk net going on. Blue jays and other meadow and forest birds constantly squawk out, intruder, intruder, danger, danger, … and any other animals (with huge noses smelling 200x better than humans) can smell previous gunpowder, blood smell, or downwind human smell, … and bug out of the region. And it is the reality that humans hunted downwind of the animals, or hunted in raised seats (above the animals smell-a-vision … and landed animals dont usually look upwards), or trapped, or hunted in teams so that the animals could be ambushed. Even having duck blinds, or stealthy below-ground huts (so that you remain below the smell-a-vision area).

    1. +Canadian Prepper I don’t want to sound harsh but most of his comment is rubish. It is in the same ethos and underlying tell tale sighns of many guys I have shared a camp fire with, talking how much they know about animals and thier attributes to find out the next day walking guiding them that they have read more stories and info about hunting, animals than they actually have real hunting/tracking/spoting/stalking abilities.
      It is the same as if I wrote a comment about social/psychology work, even though it all may seem intelligent you would see the details and nuances and reliese I don’t actually have any real world experience.
      Every so often I have to follow the quote “fools multiply when wise men are silent”. and share my hard earned knowledge.

      One example birds don’t alert other animals that your coming they usually reconize that in hunting season humans(predators) mean free gut piles. They squawk communicating *food* to other birds and predators pick up on it sometimes but it doesn’t scare game away. I have numerous times Shot/guided hunters that while we snuck up on game birds are squawking and chirping ..Game knows or believe they know when it’s safe and feed at certain times and pick thier bedding locations wisely and “tactically” so thier strengths are heightened.

      Once you learn how they pick thier spots you can scan large areas and be pretty confident were they are bedding and by default find thier routes to feed and water.

      Also notice next time you are in the woods notice that while you are walking most birds, squirrels are silent exept high flying birds. When your quite and not making any noise is when they start to get vocal…if birds are making noise they are comfortable and not trying to go unnoticed by you.

    2. +SNOOP U 2 I have taken around a dozen first time hunters out and most are flushed with emotions before and during thier first kill…but all once they come to the dead animal thier instincts take over they want to clean and take care of the meat readily..the glow and pride on thier face when they taste the first of thier meat is unexplainable, quite magical actually.

    3. I tried hunting I had a a clear shot I couldn’t bring myself to pulling the trigger. I guess I didn’t want to deal with the dead dear. There was many on the land I was in Montana. The guy that own the land said they come up to his back door some time’s for hunting for him would be no fun.

    4. +Charles Mills I was responding to John not yourself, sorry for the confusion. How cold is it in the foxhole blind? is the ground frozen? troubles with them flooding? Don’t think I would spend the time to dig a blind.

  2. Your body language in this video is striking and portrays an obvious monumental turning point to me, a game changer in your general outlook on prepping, where all the preparatory work has lead you to this moment (and mine) that you so well describe: owning and living from the land in perpetuum, off grid, self-reliably while gaining valuable experience living “in the wild” while it’s still time (for a smoother transition if it gets to that). I agree that it is time to do that now as necessary purchase items are readily, abundantly available, while hoping for the best yet bracing for the worst (just in case), no matter the reason for prepping. Had a tornado here in Ottawa weeks ago… power outage for a day or two… resulting in car lineups at peripheral gas stations that quickly ran out of gas… someone with a Mercedes cutting in front of the line… storm of people at further Canadian Tire stores but no more gas containers, no more water and no propane tanks… people sharing small gas containers and running out of gas on the highway… cell phones not working… taxis all booked… traffic jams… population asked by police to stay home instead of going to work… large sudden influx of people in small neighbour villages… price gouging etc: It was just like you’ve been saying all along and it was unravelling right in front of my eyes. And it was just a small tornado. What an eye opener to live it (and imagine at a large scale… Isn’t it just a matter of time?) – To increase my chances at surviving short-term (less than 1 year I’d say) I sure need to gather the essentials that you’re covering (I’m doing that now) and, for the long term (over 1 year), I’m reminded of how foreign lands were “conquered” and where people thrived: we’d eventually need a small community of like-minded friendly preppers having each other’s back with various skill sets such as farmers, builders, hunters, engineers, soldiers, cooks, wood and steel workers, doctors, dentists and loners (who usually have innate and developed special survival skills). Compromising along the way during the big restart would be essential, lol. My step #1 is to be able to survive autonomously up to 2 years (food / water well / seeds etc in case there’s no help or no one reliable around and until things settle down/hopefully repair themselves) followed by my step #2, which is to gather with others (ideally from the start, wow, can you imagine the leverage?) Resiliency is everything to rebuild with as less effort as possible and hopefully to again live relatively comfortably in as short period of time as possible. Thoughts?

  3. A friend of mine just bought some land in the hills. The land is raw forest right now. He’s planning to put a garden shed there and pre-stage some preps. Maybe you could do a video of how to store preps out in the forest so that animals and/or people can’t get in and ruin/steal it.

  4. I agree, land away from the dependent masses is the dream and cultivating a life of self-sufficiency is the logical end game. That’s one long journey. That’s why I enjoy the My Self Reliance channel on YT. Sean James got property and has been building a homestead for over a year now doing all the work himself with mostly hand tools and free-sourced materials. Great channel. Also there’s The Wooded Beardsman who’s been running pretty scientific “wilderness living challenge” experiments where he and a friend attempt to maintain body weight and balanced nutrition using only wild harvested foods. He’s been doing this for a couple years now. BTW both these guys are Canadian and really educational, giving an idea of what it takes. If you’re not onto them already then you should be IMHO.

  5. Even to get a small crop into unused land is very hard work, with months before any return. Once it is up and running, get used to it lack of variety in the cooking pot.☆ lot of people can’t tell the difference between recycle and compost, when required to do so. Such is this modern world
