Same here, we let a friend come and hunt but no one else. I'm afraid some neighbors are poaching though because we found a skull from a buck with antlers still attached.

That National Geographic article overlooks that fact that while man may have eaten oats pre-agriculture, they would have been eating wild oats they gathered, so I would imagine not in large quantities. Kind of like the honey, tubers and fruit they ate.

Pretty sure a metabolically healthy person who is very active (like Paleo peoples would have been) can probably tolerate wild oats, etc. in limited quantities.

I don't think this discovery says much about the healthfulness of a Paleo diet.

lol, we have found the "offal"..... we dont allow hunting, but reserve abutts 50% of our property line.

Lots of companies have "wild" edibles for home steaders and the like. We r looking at Jerusalem artichokes, and pawpaw and quince, fiddlehead ferns , etc.

What is missing , beyond food items , is the soils and lack of herbicides and persticides They are light years ahead of us; most stuff is banned.

While picking tomatoes today, the bees are out in full force, so a little care is necessary. NO HONEYBEES, just bumble bees. And in the late afternoon, a dismal few bats feeding on mosquitoes.

My micri environment is affected by those pesticide crazy enthusiasts all arou nd the US.

Usually we will call a neighbor because they know how to butcher them, we don't. They keep the meat for area volunteer firefighter fundraisers.

Omg... that is supposed to be the BEST pork!!!

There was/is a farm in VT that carefully selects for grazing. The diggers become dinner. Has been a lonnnnnng process as hogs naturally love to root, s u know.

These are feral hogs probably from domestic many generations ago but now mixed with true wild hogs. They have huge 3 inch top and bottom tusks which cut like a knife. They can be very aggressive and I've seen youtube videos of people attacked by them with hundreds of stitches if they don't die from loss of blood first.
