There is no other wild, four-legged animal of any size or species that have had the explosive population increase across the North America as the Canis Latrans — the coyote.
Becoming a proficient hunter and shooter certainly isn’t easy. It’s often a challenging proposition that involves many frustrating experiences. Most of my own abilities have developed throughout five decades of squeezing the trigger in various shooting and hunting venues around the world.

Being a prepper alone can be a lonely thing to do. However, it doesn’t need to be. Dogs have been “a mans’ best friend” for a long time. And for excellent reasons, too. Well, you can consider the Mountain Cur, “a preppers best friend.”
I’ve learned from my ancestors that Mother Nature will provide you with everything you need to survive. My family was fed many years thanks to what we managed to harvest from the wild. We learned that whether it is plant or animal, everything has a purpose in nature. Porcupines may not be an appealing choice when it comes to survival food. However, I can assure you that their meat is an important source of protein in a survival situation.
First-time elk hunters will be amazed at the amount of preparation necessary to pull off a successful hunt. High country hunting requires special planning, physical fitness training, selection of proper equipment, and basic knowledge of game habits and habitat.
