In mountainous areas, a lot of game is often found. But if you need to go the route in a few days and go to a safe place, then you don’t have time to make and install traps or traps. It’s not to be tormented by stomach due to improperly prepared animal meat.
Finding food in the mountains, catching fish using the tug of war, collecting edible wild plants and insects, larvae, earthworms.
Your first priority is to continue moving around the area. Gathering edible vegetation along the way and trying to catch fish. This will be possible if luck smiles at you and a pond meets along the way. Many lakes and rivers in the mountains are teeming with fish. Therefore, when events begin to unfold according to the survival scenario, instead of trying to catch up with a rabbit, you better resort to a fishing rod. So you save both time and energy.
Your chances of catching fish in mountainous areas will increase significantly if you put a banner. Attach several pieces of fishing line of different lengths to a piece of parachute cord (paracord) or a strong rope. Attach hooks to these pieces and put bait on them. Fasten one end of the cord or rope, and tie some kind of weight to the other. For example a bottle filled with water or a large stone and drown it in water. When you see that the “fishing line” began to twitch, pull out your catch.
Collection of edible wild plants and insects, larvae, earthworms.
When preparing for a trip in the mountainous areas, carefully studying the map of the area along which your route will go. Find out how edible wild medicinal plants and insects live there. Accessible and safe sources of fats, nutrients and proteins are pine cones, clover, as well as larvae and earthworms..
Choose dry pine cones in which the scales have already opened. Smash them to free them to release the nuts in them. Among clovers, everything is edible and harmless. You can use one rule: any wild plant that you see animals eat is likely to be safe for humans too.
