I agree but what about unwelcome thermal tech obsevers.
Traitorous advise or good will?
Should we trust others.
These cats say south facing yada yada guess what US gov and other gov know this common knowledge....evading this detection is a plus with workarounds that are undetectable...dont listen to these fools as they mention the most likely targets for high tech not how you can potentially evade.edit on 19-11-2012 by survivalcat because: (no reason given)

while being able to set up a renewable energy system or an aqaponics or hydroponics facility seems like an attractive skill, these are enterprises that require vast amounts of delicate mechanical and electric structures, an energy storage medium - that is, deep cycle batteries, and they are easily broken, hard to repair without spare parts, and paint a big target on any community.
the problem with complex electrical and mechanical skills is that they are evolved within a complex society that dedicates a large amount of time and resources to training these skills and manufacturing the very refined materials that they require. outside of this high-end scenario, you'd have to be able to recreate the entire production ecosystem of a 21st century state in order to be truly sustainable over the years.
this is not going to happen. we're talking complex chemistry, the ability to melt and cast metals at precise temperatures, the work required to find and extract those metals, and an immense and ready-to go knowledge base.

I want to add to your your trapping/snaring idea, one that I've used and that works (though not very "nice".) If there are turkeys in your area you can use 20lb test fishing line and a hook. Thread the hook with canned corn or boxed cereal or sprouted/boiled acorns , hang the line from a tree, hang back being quiet and patient.......when the turkey goes for the bite they will usually get stuck. Best is to have a machete to cut the head off. You can also wring the neck but be quick about it because they fight and some have pretty sharp talons. This is for survival mode only and I do not condone this for everyday hunting.
On mushrooms: I hunt mushrooms very regularly and I normally would not recommend eating them if your aren't experienced, but Morels are one species that are delicious and once you've seen/picked a few it is in my opinion one of the very few mushrooms that can't be confused with anything else because there is nothing that "copies" it like so many others. Other good wild species for eating are : Hen of the woods and chantarelles. But the morel as I said is virtually foolproof. It grows on wooded hillsides,small wooded valleys, especially near dead elms. In my experience the most dangerous mushrooms are the cute little white and brown button types that all look alike. STAY AWAY from those. Also, kids are great for mushroom hunting since they are so much closer to the ground it will give them something to do and they will catch quite a few things you will miss. If you can afford it I highly recommend purchasing a field guide (the audobon society has a great one) for mushrooms.
