the fact that you have to resort to slurs and emotionally charged language indicates this is rooted in your emotions, not any rational argument.

LOL! Just eat it?

Most modern footwear is very bad at being footwear. Modern man rarely walks 10 miles a day anymore. If a SHTF happens, and people will be forced to walk long distances again, people will truly realize that the footwear they are wearing is very detrimental to them. Blisters, wet feet because of no ventilation, joint pain due to raised heels, etc etc.

The fact is, true general purpose hard term walking foot wear, I have researched and experimented with for a very long time.

I can tell you the one setup that seems to be the best general purpose beat all.

It is the leather sandal + wool socks combo.

You want flat leather sandals, and 3 layers of wool socks for different temperatures and climates. Make sure your socks are 100% wool and nice and fluffy.

Yes, your socks will get wet when it rains or walking through wet grasses. No, it doesn''t really matter. Your feet are still warm yet well ventilated. Wool is very incredible in that regard. And at the end of the day, simply undo them and dry them by the fire.

It really pays back well to invest in your feet.

Only this set up allows me to walk long term without feet getting torn up or getting cold. All other set ups make long walking miserable.

>arch support
a meme perpetuated by Big Shoe who want you to need to buy their products in order to walk without pain.

Heel striking is unnatural and only feels normal because all of your shoes raise your heel up above the balls of your feet.

>Rock plate
>Hard toe
I don't know what those are.
Rock plate is a layer of hard material between the outsole and the insole, which protects against sharp rocks (or anything else) penetrating to your foot even if it does pierce the sole. Hard toe, I just mean like a steel toe, but I'm okay with composite hard toes too.

What are those by the way? Image search doesn't get me anything.
I used to wear my chacos for everything
I would wear them with wool socks, like OP's setup, until there was snow on the ground.
I realized it's more convenient to just buy cheap running shoes than go through expensive hiking sandals every other year.
They are maximum comfy though.
No shit, you would fucking die from hypothermia.
If you had a good sleeping bag this would be absolutely no problem.
Good wool is almost as good as neoprene. I've literally worn wool socks ww kayaking in winter.

Imagine a SHTF scenario where you have to live of nature. Assuming you don't have a cow farm nearbynor something, is it actually possible to survive of easy to come by plant and buglife? Especially assuming there's more than one of you I can't imagine hunting big game being sustainable, especially depending on your location.

Depends. Are you lost in the wilderness and want to be rescued? Don't bother eating. It's better for your body to enter fasting mode and use up your fat reserves than spend the energy to get a mediocre amount of food. Is it a long-term scenario where you're living off the wilderness? Expect to fucking die in winter.
It'd be a lot more difficult to account for, but it's not so much actual percentages as it would be dependent on local population density. Nearly everyone in a city would simply be fucked unless they already had a ton of wilderness survival experience and could manage to get out of the city before they die in the chaos, and even then, there'd be no guarantees. Rural Americans' odds would be much higher, because most already have established land and farming skills, and would be willing to help provide for others in their community, independent of the commercial systems that most people rely on. Canada would be in the same boat, but the percentage of survivors would be higher, just because they're more rural in general, and have more open space to hunt compared to their population, and would probably even be quick to start a commercial wild game industry, assuming they'd have the arms and ammo after the gun grab. In the case of third-world shitholes, they'd probably not even notice that anything had gone awry, other than the fact that they'd stop getting new missionaries.

This isn't a problem. Less competition will be helpful for anyone who had the foresight to develop the necessary skills beforehand.

>/out/ isn’t this retarded is it?
Yes. I can count on one hand, the number of posts I've read by people that actually knew what they were talking about in regards to actual survival situations.

>In the history of mankind most were too dumb to farm, now we're not
If you didn't have access to the internet, would you know how to grow and preserve all the varieties of food you'd need to get not only your daily calories, but all the necessary vitamins and minerals to maintain your health long-term? Because if you do, you're in the slight minority.

How long after person died is he safe to eat?
Kys, animal abuser I wish you cancer and hell
>How long after person died is he safe to eat?
After about 12 hours rigor mortis sets in, and that doesn't let off until bacteria has started to break down the tissue. I'd try to eat them as quickly as possible, and pair them with something acidic, like pineapple. Think pig, but instead of gamey, it'd be more chemical-ish. You probably also wouldn't want to try to preserve any of it, especially through dehydration. The modern diet and lack of exercise really causes a build-up of horrible toxic byproducts in the meat, though that could be less of an issue a month or two after garbage food and sedentary lifestyles have become a thing of the past.

Best of luck to you. Cannibalism will not be taken lightly by those who learn to fear it.

Is there any animal stupider and more deserving of death than the whitetail deer? Of all the hunting I do, these are the only animals I actually get pleasure from killing.

This is how I know you've never hunted before. I bow hunt, and let me tell you, bow hunting white tails on public land can be challenging and requires a lot of patience and perseverance. Super rewarding when you get that buck you've been playing cat and mouse with, so you best believe Im gonna be grinning when I snap a picture of me holding it's rack.
Totally agree. Because of this I’ve built a big game boxing ring in my backyard. I trap a big buck each season. My wife ties my hands behind my back and the buck is set loose in the ring and we proceed to battle. Most times I’m able to snap its neck with my thighs eventually but there’s been a couple times where the deer beat me (knocked me out, tore my ACL, etc). I always consider this as a win for the deer and let it go and hope to get a rematch the following season
Went hunting with some res niggers once. Basically the same thing. Bunch if drunk injuns chase a deer into a corral and then the two drunkest and dumbest scalp monkeys run up on it. One grabs its antlers and wrestles it against the fence. Other one stabs it with a rusty buck knife. Was not hard but one of them did get antlered and another one broke a rib drunkenly falling off the fence whooping and hollering like a grass chimp is prone to. Ill stick to just shooting a deer with a gun like a nonminority and being happy about the meat in my freezer and nogunz demfags being pissed about it online.

This is hands down the best dollar to weight/value/packability outdoor item I've ever bought. I thought this would be total shit but it's incredible.
get a Thermos
does it come with toilet paper?
No, a quality pair of pants for me is like 100 bucks. I'm pretty young though and don't make a ton of money which may inform my perspective a bit but 225 dollars for a pair of pants just sounds absurd.

No but deluth trading company's sale is. At least 30% off of everything with no minimum. I have some of their firehose coats and I've been really really impressed. (The flannel lined one is my outermost hiking layer atm and I also use it as an around town coat)

>The woods would be crowded in no time.
Most would, yeah. This is just very far from the road, there are no trails, and I've never seen anyone there, despite spending an entire summer there once. On the off chance that others have the same location planned, there's enough fish to feed plenty of people, so I don't expect conflict.

like who? nobody on this board goes outdoors anymore
I was brought up in a care home where the only treat was not getting molested. I got kicked out at fourteen because I could grow facial hair and it made me an adult as far as the system was concerned and was immediately picked up by an opportunistic homosexual pedophile and spent my hours either working in the corner shop or being molested. I ran away at age sixteen and got out of the rain in a run down factory near the train tracks and got hooked on heroine through some friendly junkies that lived there to stop feeling the cold through the bunched up newspapers and hoodie that was my bedding in the dead of winter. I got to live live indoors from 17-19 on the merit of being the youngest junkie someone found living there but at 27 I'm back on my own in a bedsit and barely able to keep the heating on and will no doubt be back on the streets with my limited skill set. The Road would be an improvement.

>nobody on this board goes outdoors anymore
The few who do don't post here much in the warmer weather and tend to be bitter assholes right after the last weekend of hunting season. This year might be a little different, but that's been the trend for the last six or so years.

>The Road would be an improvement.
I would have believed your story if you hadn't added that last line. Anyone who's been in a situation even half that bad knows that even if you're taking handouts and eating out of trashcans, that those handouts and trashcans are only there because the rest of society is still functional. The year I decided to hitchhike around the US with almost no money, I still relied on other people driving me between cities, free wifi and the occasional cheap and high-calorie fast-food binge to keep me going. And even in good times, I wouldn't want to do that again, living in the woods was better.

Dumped two pheasant and a quail by the north Ok border on Thanksgiving. Best dog broke his foot though and is down for the season. Firebreathing little shit will still reeee across the prairie but suppose I will focus on my new pup. Got his first exposure on truly wild birds.
