    Default What skills could you bring to a "Survivors" scenario?

    I once worked in a supermarket butchery department, so I'd know how to cut up pork chops. I don't know how easy/hard it is to kill a pig (or lamb) though.

    i'm pretty sure i can gut, skin and clean any animal
    As for killing them... my survival is more important than theirs

    catching the little bastards is a different matter though!

    killing lambs or sheep is easy enough, provided you have the right equipment. A stout pair of wellies and a blue-vein-thrombosis should just about do it, just sh@g the buggers to death.
    I know that there is at least one person who posts here who is an expert, although its best to tread carefully as he can be a touch irritable

    all tribes need

    a chief
    a hunter
    a gatherer
    a shaman
    an axeman
    a spearman
    a fisherman
    a dominatrix with baby oil and a whip

    nowhere, nowhere
    in the tribes manual, does it say anything about a nun

    I think when it comes to survival, most people could chop up an animal to eat. They may not do it most efficiently or cleanly, but they would.
