... Quoting: Wash
I'd hate to have to do that, but it's true.
We have 2 Maine Coons (cats)...they'd be dinner long before the dogs.
True.. God forbid..... cats and crows...really bad meat...trust me.
My location is on a lake. Lots of ducks...except in winter. Lots of fish. Lots of rabbit and deer. Also, squirl and dove are pleantyful.
Climate change will end your delusions of growing food and harvesting game. Not to mention you have got to feed your animals as well, if they do no succumb to the climate changes, pollution, et al.
Also, a small population of people will wipe country sides clean of small and large animals in short order. Louis and Clarks' small party wiped out large and small game animals on the north west coast 2 days walk around their camp in part of a one fall and one winter.
If it were not for the natives in the area bringing them food, they would have starved to death.
You are forgetting the population in this country is 300 million. You really think all those living in large cities are just going to sit in their rooms and starve without moving into the country side? You really think you will somehow be able to 'hide' where you are?
In the past, large numbers of people walked from the east to the west across this country in relatively short order.
Is there a road to your house? Hard to hide food and shelter with a road leading right to it.
But, its good to dream and it sounds like you got it already, that is awesome, enjoy it, cause it aint gonna last forever.
