[VIDEO] Pocket Survival Kit (PSK) – Food Procurement Options

One of the most important parts of survival is finding sustenance. Without food your body and your organs slowly shut down, your mind becomes foggy and doing all of the things you need to survive becomes more complicated, dramatically lowering your chances of survival.

A good Pocket Survival Kit (PSK) contains both something to eat in an emergency, as well as the tools necessary to procure more food if your supplies dwindle down to nothing. Cache Valley Prepper is here to show you exactly how to get the most bang for your buck and guarantee you won’t go hungry.

  • That bullion mix is a GREAT thought, I never imagined it as part of my food prep’s even in my larger stockpiles. And that will help with the missing salt flavoring too.
    Thanks for taking the time to do this.

    • Yes, chicken bouillon is a great soup base for small game you are able to procure and takes up little space. Stew retain much needed fat calories, preventing them from dripping into the fire during grilling. But if you have plenty of food, they can be used as seasonings or a little BBQ powder can be used or grilled game. Many hunters prefer the taste of grilled game.

  • Instead of all that food, better have always at hand a jar of honey! Honey is the BEST!!!

    • Honey is certainly multi-use. I carried honey in my Go Bag for years. It stores well and when it eventually crystalizes heating it will turn it back to liquid. I wouldn’t carry it exclusively because survival foods should have a balance of fats, protein, carbohydrates and sugars and should be non-thirst provoking. Honey by itself is high in sugar.

      I recommend granulated sugar because it is multi-use and can be combined with salt and water to improvise oral rehydration salts. Like honey, it can be applied topically to wounds to prevent infection. Granulated sugar is also more calorie dense than honey and that’s why I recommend it for Pocket Survival Kits where space is so limited.

      That said, .your mileage may vary and it makes sense carry what you eat.
