If he died first -yes
If my children were going to die - yes

Otherwise -no

The fact that I was the only girl that went with my uncle's boyscout troop every camp out means this question would probably not pop up for me.

I would make snares to try to catch rabbits or rats and I can build a fire in pretty bad conditions. I also know which vegetation is poisonous and which I can eat. I can skin a rabbit faster than any guy I know (and 90% of them don't know how to skin a rabbit)

I think every young boy or girl should be in girl/boy scouts. Girl scouts is kinda wimpy though, which is why I tagged along with boy scouts.

If they died first then yes but I wouldn't kill them to eat them.

Now if there happened to be another person in this scenario that I really didn't like, I'd probably kill them and eat them.

Such a bizarre question. How would I know what I would do if faced with that kind of decision?

Wondering what is prompting these topics...

I think if I was alone, I wouldn't consider it. Just wouldn't be in my nature. But if I were with someone else, I'd be concerned for them and would consider it.

Note to self: When going on a wilderness adventure take Lonestar with you. He'll pick up and bring back anything that walks, runs, flies or crawls I'll never starve.

I would eat my dog if it really came down to it. But I am a prepper. I stock food, ammunition and clothes for the "rainy" season. I see EVERYTHING as multipurpose including neighbors. If I was that hard up, things have gotten REALLY bad because I already have food saved.

Im not talking about "Oh honey I dont know what to have for dinner, we're out of turkey meat"... "ok baby, get the dog." We are talking real starvation where you could die any day.

At the end of the day the ONLY thing that matters is God and my family.

I made the shoot your dog thread and I was just wanted to know how common it still was to use that method of putting a dog down after a client came in my store telling me that he puts his dogs down like that.
