This week I try my hand at wild foraging in the forest. Will I be able to find a safe meal, or will I pick something poisonous? The aim was to find enough calories in the forest to suffice for a full day.

  • As Less Stroud said in one of his videos - In a survival situation you won't be eating every 3-4 hours. You might be eating in 3-4 days. And it's fine. Human body can survive 10 days without food till it starts to affect your health, of course, drinking water though. Because without that only 2-3 days till health problems. So even if you work on something for 3 days, and then catch something - in survival situation, it would be a normal situation :D

  • Eat a poison mushroom will be the last thing you'll ever do . . . And no doctor or medicine will save you . . . If you ever eat one of these poisonous mushrooms get right with God . . Because it won't be long before you meet him . . . If you are going to eat a mushroom you better know it the right one . . . Or else you'll pay with your life . . . And it won't be pretty . . . I understand eating in a survival situation . . . But eating bad mushrooms will kill you faster than starvation . . . And mushrooms will give you alot worser death than starvation will . . . . And that goes for other poisonous plants . . . Know what your doing . . Or die . . . . Just because you're in a survival situation . . . Doesn't mean you have to be stupid . . . . Learn and make dam sure your eating something safe . . . Because starvation will kill you a lot easier than these poisonous mushrooms and plants will .

  • I read it from reddit: If you're not sure if a berry or a fruit is poisonous, then take another pme and leave it in the wild for maybe a day or so, if you come back to it and it's gone, then the berry or fruit is edible. If it is stillness there though, chances are that it is not safe to eat. This may also work on some leaves,

  • The easiest way to find non poisonous mushrooms is to look at the underside of the cap, if it's smooth it's most likely good, if it's ribbed it's most likely toxic. I suggest looking near trees like Birch, Spruce and others becuase some non toxic ones are in a mycorrhizae. So Have Fun Mushrooming!

  • If you live in a moisture abundant area, search for Cattail with its unmistakable cigar like flower head. The entire plant is useful. The root can be used to make soup, as it is full of starch The middle stalk is full of jelly which can be used as analgesics The rest of the stem can also be cooked The cigar like flower head is an excellent fire tinder. I too wanna learn foraging. It's an amazing life skill. Happy foraging, brother 👍😊
