    To eat.

    And because of the cycles of feast or famine we can't count on hunting as our main protein source all the time. Learn to make jerky & cure meat (the smoked kind that keeps longer) and use trapping to back it up or visa versa.

      post TEOTWAWKI I intend to mainly trap and snare, hunting take up too much time and I will have plenty of other things to be getting on with.

        To gather food. To gather intelligence about what's going on around me. To see if I am in any potential danger from approaching threats. Any number of reasons.

          Hunting in the era of consumerism is entertainment or game, as you like. The main thing to this is true, for example, sometimes hunters are needed.

          There was a village near my town and foxes began to breed in the forest. Then he had rabies.

          As a result, after the official order to shoot the foxes, they were forced to hire hunters and eliminate this problem, otherwise, not only people but the whole forest could have suffered.

          If you have permission to shoot certain animals, you can do this, you take your meat and restore balance in nature.

          For me, it's adrenaline and a way to challenge yourself :)

            I don't really hunt, I carry a firearm while checking the trapline

              Where we are located because they are a food source; I know the location of acorn, and hazelnut trees. Quite a few food sources enjoy them and other food items here. Critters like eat, too.
              To eat, learn them, all of them. .

                Game will move to rougher terrain to escape hunting pressure. A large percentage of hunters will not pursue into this terrain. Many people will wait until their other preps are exhausted before turning to hunting. IMHO that’s too late.

                the smarter move is to use your preps to supplement your hunting. That way your still strong and healthy when the game seeks rougher terrain. You’ll still be fit enough to pursue it.

                  That was spot on! Using one's preps up when there is game and fish available isn't wise.

                  Where we live the terrain is V shaped. We live on a bull dozed flat with a V on either side; basically, it is "butt sliding" terrain.

                  This was taken about 5 or 6 years ago when we had a 29'-6" camper here. Above the camper gives an idea how steep the terrain is.
                  Today, there is a house there.
                  There is very little, if any hunting pressure here.
                  The only hunter we've seen was hunting hogs. His chase dog chased a hog up one mountain and down into the valley; then up, the mountain we live on. He stopped to ask if it was OK to head past us. Yup, enjoy the goat trail.
                  We heard him turn the other dogs loose and the hog started squealing. The noise stopped and no shot was fired so he used a knife or spear.
                  IMO, his reasons were more about his dog.
