We don’t know when the next calamity, natural disaster or other cataclysmic event is going to hit us. Eathquakes, Hurricanes, Floods, Volcanic Eruptions, Tsunamis, etc.
No sane person would want such things to happen, but at some point it will. And yes, it’s scary and that is why we always have to be prepared. Being properly prepared will help us to better protect ourselves and of course, our family.
Let’s say you already have an emergency preparedness kit (very good!), and you know some basic survival skills like making a fire, building a shelter, etc. What other skills do you think will come in handy? Remember, it is one thing to survive. Thriving is another.
If you are one of the few people that can quickly and efficiently butcher an animal, consider yourself a shoo-in for every hunter’s favorite trading partner. Skillfully dividing an animal into edible proportions is harder than it looks, and it may be so valuable that you’ll never have to do any of your own hunting and instead take a percentage of your customer’s kills. Bonus points if you can utilize the firs and skins of the animals as well.
