Quantcast

If you had a rifle/bullets/tent and proper clothes, could you survive in a place like Yellow Stone Park for a year without food or water?

    No one can survive a year without food or water. In Yellowstone, they have lots of water and things to eat, meat and berry varieties.... not to mention the crap the tourists bring in... But if not careful... you could easily be THE FOOD source for something else.

    Yea because after i shot the first animal,game wardens would find and arrest me.
    I'd then be in jail with cable tv and 3 squares...

    No that is for young folks to play survivor. I will watch it from the closest Best Western where I can have my morning breakfast.

    I mean you have to kill your own food, or find your own food/water.

    Well, I have hunted and camped since i was 6 and i know how to build snare traps and shelter. I can grow a garden and have some knowledge of edible foliage.Water is plentiful there so if you now how to fire clay to make a boiling pot you have all the water you need. Just trade me the tent for a hatchet or a heavy bladed knife and It sounds like a good time to me.

    Yes I could. 1st thing is to build a shelther that wouldd stand up to the weather. Have a place to build a fire in it,get plenty of wood,hunt and smoke the meat,and pray a lot,for an early spring.

    There's not a lot of edible flora in alpine evergreen forests. Food would be the biggest problem unless I was allowed to hunt there. But then I'd need cartridges for the rifle. Bullets without casings, primers and powder to make them into cartridges are useless. Well I suppose I could make a slingshot like David used on Goliath, but the odds of bringing down an elk with a slingshot aren't good. No, I;d probably starve.

    Oh no you've eluded to the people that they might possibly be able to survive without most technology and government intervention, what have you done? If I had to I would, I can't say with a definite resounding yes that I'd survive because the wilderness is unpredictable but I'd try like hell.

    For me proper clothes would be #1 an M1 carbine and bullets would be nice and an ax and sharp hunting knife the tent would be a waste of time.

    M1 Carbine is ok for whitetails deer, but there or Buffalomand Grizzly Bears in Yellowstone, and its underpowered for them.

    It is a fine rifle for all around hunting and I have taken down big game with mine I would hate to be facing a large bear with it but I have dropped a grizzly with a 44 mag pistol and I think as long as you have a little distance you can do wonders with a well placed shot!
    But thanks for the comment anyway jere!

    Only if my husband is with me. His natural and survivalist nature is one of the greatest traits he has imo.

    as long as you had decent hunting skills you might. There are places in Yellowstone that have a mild clilmate.

    Possibly, would i be able to have some more supplies brought in. Need a chain saw to cut fire wood , knifes to cut meat , possibly a shovel to dig a whole for a fire pit or bathroom.
    Would be interesting...and i would be willing to try it.

    Not likely without a cutting tool. Better to have at least two dedicated blades. One for fire making and another for making traps ( need cordage too ) and camp chores. I would also need a good steel container for boiling / carrying water. I would rather have a hammock than a tent and make sure all the winter clothes are made of wool. I can get spark from my knife blade which of course would be 1095 or 01 carbon steel but, I would also like to have a couple ferro rods and lighters.

    I would sneak into the home of the caretaker when nobody is home and lock the door! By the time the government usually gets around to doing anything, the year will be up.
