This is a series I’ve wanted to do for a while. Some shows do a fair job at portraying “What might happen if…” type scenarios…some fall very short though. The good news is that the more SHTF TV is shown, the more sheep start to think about […]

Do you recall me mentioning the FWC program to get kids trained and allow them to hunt on private lands?

My 9 year-old stayed with my mom for the weekend, and was telling her about this wonderful product we stock for emergencies, and my mom was quizzing me about it. I realized I had never written about it here, so I think it’s […]
