EXTREME SURVIVORS BANNER

Edible Plants And Food Gathering

There is no need to go after larger animals in a survival situation. Tracking and hunting will demand more energy than gathering, not to mention the frustrating failed attempts.

WILDERNESS SURVIVAL BANNER

Your best bet is eating edible plants (as well as small critters like fish, frogs, and lizards).

Separating the plants you can eat from those that will kill you is a matter of study and memorization. Buy a book to familiarize yourself with plants in different environments. Do not take any chances if you are uncertain. Remember how Chris McCandles died at the end of Into the Wild by Jon Kraukauer. A few common edible plants include cattail, lambsquarter (also called wild spinach), and dandelions.
