Subsistence thread

Blueberry and blackberries are in season.
At the end of my road is a long abandoned commercial blueberry farm. Free picking. I've been clearing overgrowth over the last couple years, improving access. More of that post- harvest season. It's a flooded bog in the wet season.
Before going walkabout I told my neighbour to buy a lot of cashews, parmesan cheese and garlic.
Then I cut all the basil and delivered the whole 10 pds to her.
So they'll have a lot of pesto in the freezer for winter.
I'd like to have been there the first time someone decided that might be food.

* Desperate AF.
* I'll give you two arrowheads and this shiny pebble if you eat that!
* You lost the bet, now you have to eat this!
* C'mon, I bet it tastes just like chicken!
* Dude! You have no idea how drunk you were last night! You ate three of those crawly things out of the river!
How bout get a picture for da House of a nice cold dunk in those absolutely beautiful waters! :rockhard: :drink::|:

Okay, last check for the year and we'll switch to moose season shortly. Pulled the gear today and ended up with 10 gallons...sort of our normal.

Just got back from the river for a moose hunt... no moose were harmed but we had some great weather and relaxing. I will have to make more of an effort to get a deer or two I guess now. Here's a few videos of the landscape we hunt in.
