Hunting for self sustainability is nothing new. Obtaining food for the table has always been our family’s primary reason for hunting. The first settlements in the new world would not have survived without the precious protein harvested by the hunters and fishermen.
Though society has progressed and there may not be the need for most people to live self sustainable lives, many people continue to enjoy this lifestyle along with added financial benefits. Many families today continue to fill their freezers with fresh venison, duck, turkey, fish, and pheasant from year to year merely for the health and taste benefits.
Amazingly, man has the intelligence to genetically modify chickens for bigger breasts, and to create larger beef faster by injecting hormones into the beef. Though these man-made creations are efficient, they are certainly not natural or healthy and can be quite expensive.
People that have never hunted or thought about hunting are beginning to harvest their own meat. Wild game is one of the healthiest sustainable foods available to man. It is incredibly satisfying to sit down at the table and know that my family is dining solely on the fresh vegetables and herbs harvested and preserved throughout the summer paired with the fresh game that was harvested during a family hunt. There is truly no better way to live!
