Hunting, more than a sport!

Why I Started Hunting
James Walton “I Am Liberty

HuntingStanding on the edge of summer it’s easy to look off the cliff and see into the dark dismal valley of winter. I hate winter. Still, the holidays that come along with it make it bearable. Then of course there is hunting. I am no seasoned hunter though I am so prepared for this season it’s crazy. Hunting, to me, is about a culmination of skills and having a reason to practice those skills in real this me with a real opponent. Hunting is about filling a freezer with good clean meat not raised in factory farms. Hunting is a Continue reading Hunting, more than a sport!

Host: Lynna “A Preppers Path”

In a short series of shows we will travel down the path of raising chickens.

Chickens, raising your own!

Chickens, raising your own!
Host: MHPGardener “Best of Prepper Broadcasting

ChickensWith the cost of eggs and chicken in the stores, and the uncertainty of exactly where they came from or what they have been fed, I’d like to start raising my own chickens. But unlike gardening, I know very little about chickens. I know barbecue wings with ranch dressing make a great snack. And I know that I don’t like my yolks runny. Beyond that, I’m clueless. I have so many questions. What breed is best for egg layers? What breed is best for meat? What is the best method for raising them…free range or a coop? How well do the chicken tractors work? Are there any foods that a chicken shouldn’t eat? How do you take care of them in the winter? I could do some research online and maybe get some answers. But I’d prefer to hear from someone with first-hand experience. Continue reading Chickens, raising your own!

However, when it comes to having a sustainable protein source (beyond beans), the urban and suburban prepper / homesteader is often at a disadvantage. City dwellers or those in the ‘burbs may find they have restrictive zoning and/or a lack of land working against them when it comes to keeping a few laying hens or other livestock. But there is a solution. You just have to think outside the box. . . and smaller: Enter the Quail. Continue reading Raising Quail with guest, Autumnprepper

The Homestead Hog!

The Homestead Hog!
Host: Renée aka Michigansnowpony

It’s easier than you think to raise your own pork!

HomesteadIf you have the space and your zoning allows it, you might want to consider raising a couple of pigs. Not only will you have the most delicious hams, chops, and bacon you can imagine, you’ll also have peace of mind knowing exactly what your pigs were fed and how they were treated. While most of today’s pork is raised in unhealthy, confinement factory farms, yours will be a quality AND humanely raised meat. Plus, if you home butcher and cure, you can avoid the nitrates which predominate in commercially smoked and cured pork products today. Continue reading The Homestead Hog!
