Huntavore’s Big WHY & Self-Reliance

Huntavore’s Big WHY & Self-Reliance

The Huntavore  / 

Posted on January 02, 2022

Show Notes

On this episode of Huntavore, NIck is on a solo ramble on this one. Being the first podcast episode of the year he wanted to get himself right with his thoughts. Looking back to 2021, a glaring theme was “supply chain issues”. Trying to combat this problem, Nick as declared the word of 2022 as “self-reliance” and highlighted steps taken to separate from the domestic food system that is struggling. Nick also answers for himself the big question of “Why do you hunt?” not to try and condone his actions, but to solidify his passions for natural wild protein, and elevating it to desirable, nutritious food.

Everything we consume comes from a chain of companies and workers who bring us what we need. But that system was interrupted and we are witnessing the result of over consumption, a lack of labor force, and toppling domino effect of goods and services not being able to keep up with the demand. If I had to pick a word for 2021 it would be “supply chain issues”. Globally we are in a gridlock and are trying to get ourselves out of it. This is reality. So as a way to try and fight that, on the smallest scale imaginable, I have declared 2022’s new word as “self-reliant”. I’m not completely going off the grid and off the deep end on this, but I do see the benefit of taking a single aspect of my consumption and trying to find a way to be able to produce it myself. My focus is adding a garden that I ACTUALLY weed this time.

In this episode as well, I ask myself “why do you hunt?” scenario. I'm not questioning my actions, but solidifying my response to a world who will ask those questions of me. I had a great conversation with a friend about him getting involved in hunting and he questioned my reasons to gain an understanding of if hunting is worth it. Can you guess what I said?
