    Hypothetical situation:

    OMG the zombies have arrived or yer starving or whatever.

    You come across a field with livestock in it.

    How do you capture/kill one to eat?

    You only have the clothes you are standing in. No tools/kit.

    This is the nature of war. By protecting others, you save yourself. If you only think of yourself, you'll only destroy yourself.

    COW - hold on to its tail and milk it (done correctly no bucket required!)

    Bull - leave it be!




  • Not what I was thinking but OK!

    No tools/kit? How do you eat it exactly? :)

    Not your ornery onager





  • Scenario # 2: Find zombie feasting on livestock already killed - then wait for zombie to leave. Eat remains as required

    Does that turn you into a zombie - oooppps!

    Get a fire going with a bow drill using a boot lace and use a sharp stone to cut pieces of meat?

  • OK my idea for capturing an animal in this situation is:

    Go to the edges of the field, or the next one.
    Find barbed wire and use two stones to break off a length
    Open the gate to the field with the animals in
    Make a snare in the opening with the wire
    Chase the animals out the gateway
    Hopefully one will be snared

    It was a question posed to me a while back and that's what I came up with.

    This is the nature of war. By protecting others, you save yourself. If you only think of yourself, you'll only destroy yourself.





  • 1. Snares made from barbed wire tend not to close.

    2. Stones make noise, and take time. Sharp stones take longer to make. Paper, rock or scissors?

    3. Gate is locked.

    4. You are wearing slip-on shoes/boots.

    5. Owner is lying in wait.

    6. Dog(s) are barking/biting.


    tl/dr Chase them into a ditch, wait for them to die, eat eyes/ears/nose/lips/other appendages (:eek:). Come back much later when natural scavengers have opened the carcass. Eat the liver if it's still there.

    You know how to make black pudding? :)

  • 1. Snares made from barbed wire tend not to close. I know but we aren't talking about a bunny hopping around

    2. Stones make noise, and take time. Sharp stones take longer to make. Paper, rock or scissors? Relevance?

    3. Gate is locked. Break down an opening

    4. You are wearing slip-on shoes/boots. Well I never!

    5. Owner is lying in wait. Say here Chief I'm starving, but I'd but useful to your camp

    6. Dog(s) are barking/biting. Dogs may put on a show but really need to be trained to attack (OK some will but most need to be trained)

    This is the nature of war. By protecting others, you save yourself. If you only think of yourself, you'll only destroy yourself.





  • You could try this technique :D
