in the event SHTF how long will game populations last. I imagine most people who have not prepared will flock to the cities looking for government handouts.

yet still I bet hunting activity will spike. how long can our deer and elk populations hold out?

will the the city people stick to local cows and stray animals or get lost in the woods looking for food?

City people think meat grows on trees, wrapped in plastic cartons hanging like apples. They'll drive right past a herd
(or maybe stop to try to milk a bull) but never realize that it was a field full of t-bones.

Realistically game and fish population will plummet to an all time low. There are to many people looking for food they wil eat anything they can find. Your pets deer fish and I am sure even trash fish and predators. My grandpa fed his family thru the depression on skunks.

The wild game population declined dramatically during the great depression. It would probably be even worse if that were to happen today, due to a larger human population.

Meat is meat...

I think we covered the answer to this in the infamous Cannibalism thread. A nice tender, organic fed, office kept human... hmm :s0012:

Vegetarians taste the best.

I guess it depends where you live. I don't mind rabbits, nutria and the occasional neighbors cat that wanders too close... "it was runnin' straight fer me and I was skared for my familize lifs so I had to shot it..."

I'm sure the wild game population will plummet but how many of the folks in the city have more than a tank of gas to get out of town? How many would be tempted just to pop a "slow elk" (moo) that's standing at the side of the road?

How is the average person going to store this meat once they have it? I'm willing to bet less than 30% of the city population knows how to store meat without a freezer.
