 Episode-1675- Veteran’s Day Special for 2015 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:53:39

TweetThank a Vet Today Today is Veteran’s Day and so it is time yet again for our special Veteran’s Day edition of The Survival Podcast. I have also removed any time based references so that this version can be timeless. There is no commercial content today as the entire show is dedicated to those that serve our nation. You will notice more music in today’s show, hopefully no lawyers for Trace Atkins, Tim McGraw or Toby Keith will come after me for today’s show though I doubt it will be an issue. Additionally you will hear the song I co wrote with Gregg Yows, “What Have You Done”. So tune in today for the story of Veteran’s Day, stories about our troops and the real reasons you should never miss a chance to say thank you to a veteran.  

 Episode-1624- Get your plants off Welfare with Mike Vertrees | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:32:10

TweetMike Vertrees Permaculturist and Soil Guru Mike Vertrees lives and works part time on a 50 acre homestead in middle Tennessee. He first became interested in soils and compost as a way to repair the eroded clay soil he had in abundance. He mostly focused on what he calls the Hippie Voodoo aspects of soil science.  These included biodynamic techniques, information gleaned from youtube and several books. Mike soon found that a lot of the information was supported by anecdotal evidence at best, but none the less developed a real passion for experimenting. Mike participated in the Geoff Lawton online PDC in 2013 and took a lot of useful information from the soils sections of the course. In the spring of 2013 Mike came to PermaEthos as one of two original tenant farmers with Jesse Tegtmeier. Mike spent the season there immersed in all the educational opportunities and took advantage of getting to meet and learn from experts in several farming, permaculture, and homesteading disciplines. Since then Mike has be en sponsored by PermaEthos to study Soil and Soil biology under Dr. Elaine Ingham who has researched proven methods for soil restoration for the last 30+ years. PermaEthos has partnered with Mike to introduce a Soil Restoration Design Course and Consultancy. This is a program where we work with you to fix or improve your soils over an entire year’s cycle. Mike has organized all his experience and study into a hybrid course of education and consultation. And is here today to talk about that.

 Episode-1623- Cooking Deer Meat | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:52:53

TweetHow Do we Get from this to Dinner? Find out Today. While this episode rounds out the bow hunting deer series a few things should be pointed out.  Obviously all these recipes apply equally to the gun hunter or the person with that special friend that gives away deer meat.   Additionally it needs to be pointed out these are all fantastic ways to cook lamb, mutton and goat.  Indeed lamb specifically is a great analog to venison. Additionally in the sausage recipes you have two options.  One is to simply use 100% pork in them, if you use wild pork 1/3rd to 1/2 of the meat should be domestic pork for fat or just cut in 10-15% fatback.  The other is again to substitute lamb, mutton or goat for the venison, or for something really cool substitute duck or goose. Join Me Today to Discuss… Some basic rules of cooking period Don’t boil stuff unless you are making stock or soup You can always cook meat longer, you can never un cook it Let meat warm up before putting on a grill or in a hot pan Excess rubs burn, and again excess moisture is usually bad My 4 Deer Sausage Recipes (PDF Download of them Here) Deer Andouille Sausage – (first time I have ever given this out) Deer Jalapeno Sausage – (another personal recipe) Jacks Dead Simply Black Pepper Sausage – (been making this for 28 years) Deer Breakfast/Italian Sausage (adapted from Keith Snow’s Recipe) Some Blow You Away Grilled Venison Methods Bacon Wrapped Crusted Jalapeno Deer Loin Deer Tenderloin With “Chang’s Treatment” – from Neil Franklin Deer Leg Steak with Black Pepper Crusting Deer “Minute” Steaks The Best Deer Burgers Ever – stupid simple In the Oven and On the Stove Deer stew – best made with shanks Slow Roasted Shoulder – with out drying it out The Tied Roast – add 10-20% pork (also good smoked) Deer chili – hot or mild Tacos – yep and stupid simple For Breakfast Egg, potato and venison breakfast tacos Sausage and sweet potato hash, with eggs (2 options) Stocks and Other Less Known Options Basic deer stock Vegetable deer soup Deer lasagna – just use the Italian Sausage Roasted Sausage and Crispy Finger Potatoes Deer Heart with Red Wine Reduction and Mushrooms In the end it is simply red meat, just don’t over cook it because it is lean Resources for today’s show… Join the Members Brigade The Year 1623 Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom TSP Gear PermaEthos.com AgriTrue.com GenForward The Duck Chronicles – Video Series Backwoods Home – (sponsor of the day) Harvest Eating – (sponsor of the day) PDF of My Sausage Recipes Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-1622- Tales from a Week of Farm Sitting | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:46:49

TweetMorning Bath Time for Turkeys and Ducks Ryan Bradley is a 26year-old former Science Teacher with a Marketing Degree from Texas State University. He has taught for the past 3 years, but recently left to follow the entrepreneurial path, hoping to have the impact that seemed unattainable in the public education system. The show today will be about how a guy who grew up in the suburbs adapted to a permaculture duck farm. Ryan is going to tell us what a “Week at the Spirko House” was like, and give everyone a kind of “day-in-the-life” of a duck-farmer in Central TX. Then, we’ll discuss his project to help Alternative Farmers/Homesteaders & other young entrepreneurs collaborate to do similar work. He also has a treat for those of you who follow The Duck Chronicles, in the form of a Photo Album that will be mentioned near the end of the show & can be found in the show notes for today’s episode.

 Episode-1618- Joe Mooney on DIY for Fun, Prep, Homesteading and Profit | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:46:08

TweetCheck Out Joe Mooney’s Awesome Youtube Channel “HomesteadEconomics” Joe Mooney is a passionate advocate for becoming more self-reliant and learning through DIY self-education. While a firefighter by trade, he is a DIY project junkie and amateur homesteader by passion. Growing up in both rural and urban areas around the US, Joe now calls his rural ‘homestead’ in the Arizona desert home. He and his family live off of 90% rainwater, collected from their roof and are always looking for new ways to become more self-reliant and live a more satisfying and healthy life. Joe maintains a YouTube channel called “Homesteadonomics” that chronicles many of his DIY projects and homesteading activities. He considers his channel a means to teach others how he does projects on his homestead as well as increasing his own self-education in the process. Subjects are wide ranging and include rainwater harvesting, desert gardening, chicken and beekeeping, alternative income sources, DIY home repair, leather/kydex work, various pallet projects and a rather large combination of other odd how to projects. In true homesteading fashion, Joe’s projects and homesteading activities also serve to provide additional income as well as hone future skill sets in various disciplines. In addition to making videos, Joe has written articles for backwoods home and sometimes moonlights as a craftsman of odd projects that he sells on craigslist.com Resources for today’s show… Join the Members Brigade The Year 1618 Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom TSP Gear PermaEthos.com AgriTrue.com GenForward Knife Kits – (sponsor of the day) Backwoods Home – (sponsor of the day) The Duck Chronicles – Video Series Homesteadonomics – Joe’s Youtube Channel Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-1617- Bow Hunting Deer Part Three – Deer Down ~ Now What? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:29:20

TweetJack at 13 With His First Bow Killed Deer So it has been 21 episodes since part two of this series but I figured this would be a good time to pick it back up. In Episode-1445- Bow Hunting Deer Part One ~ The Kit we discussed all the gear I carry when hunting deer, specifically on non guided hunts when you are completely on your own.  In Episode-1596- Bow Hunting Deer Part Two ~ Scouting and Setting Up we covered scouting in all 4 seasons, stand set up and everything right up until “the shot”. Today we discuss what happens next.  That arrow flew true, the deer is stuck mortally but your job is far from over.  As is more common then not the deer is down but you could not see it fall, now you must track it, find it, field dress it, drag it out, get it home and skin and quarter it. How does one get all this done, why not just take it to a butcher?  Well even then you need to field dress it and for some people a butcher may be the way to go.  Still I see it this way, everyone should process a deer or two at least once and know how to do it and complete your training by teaching someone else.  You are 10 times more likely to remember what you have done vs. just heard or read but you are 10 times more beyond that more likely to retain what you teach. When it comes to hard skills those that can do best are those that teach. Join Me Today To Discuss… Where we left off in episode 1596, what happened next The most important things to do after the shot Watch the deer find land marks for The shot The stumbles The last place you see it if you are lucky where it falls Next give it some time Get down go first to where you made the shot look for Blood Hair The arrow Try to pick up a trail Find and mark any stumbles and the last place you had visual Use your TP to mark where you find blood, hair, to verify blood, etc At night a blue light helps blood show up better When you find the deer, approach from the rear, touch first the hind end, then the eye Field Dressing In most states tag your deer now If possible put the butt down hill Lay on back If you don’t have the broad head, assume it is inside the deer Cut around colon, then open belly, cut through diaphragm, cut wind pipe, pull out Remove heart and liver (other organs if you wish) Put organs in zip lock bags, place back inside deer Remove hawk glands – don’t cut tendons! The Drag GPS is your friend don’t be afraid to use it Take the shortest route to where you can get your vehicle to the deer I use a 5 foot piece of simple soft nylon rope and a stick to drag A come along can save your ass in some situations Hanging and skinning In cold weather or a cooler you can hang skinned or not I prefer to skin asap – still warm otherwise actually cold Let deer hang whole if possible to cool if not possible part out on bone and put parts in a cooler (keep dry) Meat cuts much nicer when cold The basics of skinning and parting out Skin from the back legs down, then cut off head with saw Use saw to remove front feet Remove front legs Remove “flank steaks” Debone loins from butt roast to neck Remove tender loins Saw off “spare ribs” Saw off “neck roast” or debone hanging Saw off back bone above rump Take down hind quarters, dis joint hip bones off rump Cut off lower feet from hams and cut off “shanks” Debone as you wish at this point Uses and care of heart and liver Cuts of meat and what I do with them Shanks – for stew I leave the bone in them or debone for burger Flanks/ribs – remove trimmings grind Lower shoulder – leave bone in for roast or debone and grind Upper shoulder -debone trim and grind Loins – cut into 10 inch sections roughly Rump Roast – leave bone in for roast or debone and grind Back Legs – Debone and cut into roasts or steaks, grind lower portion Bones, roast and make stock Tallow – render it is worth the effort Rules for[...]

Sadly I don’t think we are done yet.  I think we will see massive riots and I do think they will be racially motivated at least at first.  I realize that is something you are not supposed to say, but it is what I see coming. I think the first few riots are just the beginning.  I feel the people in power know what is coming and see it as inevitable.   I might not go as far as to say they want it to happen, but I do believe they are already planning on how to use it for their own gains when it happens. Join Me Today to Discuss… What causes riots Shortages Feeling hopeless In short anger The 10% scumbag theory and the next 10 follow theory How riots begin, how they grow, it is like a fire in reality The racial fuel to riots in the US Remember the 10% Legitimate abuses of minority communities The mantra of “you are a victim” Frankly in our nation, you have to blame someone What would national riots look like Supply lines choked or closed Over 30 million people live in the top 20 US cities Over 170 million people live in the top 10 US states This includes major ports of call like LA, Seattle, Jacksonville and San Diego Spill over would effect the larger urban areas Martial law would be declared, the local and state PD can’t handle it Even if you are relatively “safe” you will be effected The larger danger Random attacks Reduced LEO active in so called safe areas Prosecution for self defense will happen Reprisal by those being attacked will happen The real losses will come in the after math No good crisis goes to waste Gun and weapons regulations Restrictions on the right to protest A war on so called “hate speech” and symbols Enlargement of the police state The mantra of “domestic terrorism” The blame game Divide and conquer, as though we need more division to be conquered Is it inevitable, may be, but may be not What you need to do for your own protection Resources for today’s show… Join the Members Brigade The Year 1614 Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom TSP Gear PermaEthos.com AgriTrue.com GenForward Harvest Eating – (sponsor of the day) Western Botanicals – (sponsor of the day) Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-1613- Food Storage for Modern Living | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:25:05

TweetBiltong – The South African Way to Store Meat Long Term Food storage is at the fundamental core of the survivalist/prepper movement and with good reason.  Your body is a machine that runs on a fuel we call food.  Run out of nutritional food and you experience things like hunger, lack of energy, illness and eventually death. The reality though is food storage isn’t just for preppers, it should be for everyone.  One thing I noticed when house shopping in Pennsylvania back in 2001 was pantry size.  We looked at new homes and they had tiny pantries.  We also looked at many homes from 80-120 years old, all had large pantries.  I don’t think it was because our prior generations were survivalists, no rather it was simply that they literally did know where their bread was buttered. Today we examine the how, what and why of food storage.  We dig into why it isn’t really something for “survivalists” but for anyone who simply values money, convenience and their current life style. Join Me Today to Discuss… Why we store food You know you are going to need it It can help you save money Convenience Insurance of your lifestyle To help others Yes for the worst of times as well What we store What we eat What stores well What we can make storable Things that store well and prepare well in volume Holistic Food Storage “The Rules” Rule One – Eat what you store, store what you eat Rule Two – Take advantage of opportunity buys Rule Three – Find local sources of food and partake of them Rule Four – Use commercially prepared long term storables as extenders Rule Five – Become a producer of food and/or storables Rule Six –  Seek a Holistic Solution How storing food empowers you to live a better life Resources for today’s show… Join the Members Brigade The Year 1613 Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom TSP Gear PermaEthos.com AgriTrue.com GenForward JM Bullion – (sponsor of the day) The Berkey Guy – (sponsor of the day) Survival Tenet #5 My Videos on Biltong Part 1 and Part 2 My Video on the Vaccucanner Website for the Vaccucanner DIY Make Your Own Vaccucanner Electric Canner We Use Bob Wells Plant of the Week – Lapins Cherry – Highly adaptable zone 5 to zone 9.  This cherry is one of the few truly self-fertile options, making it ideal for small back yard growers with limited space. Additionally it only requires 400-500 chilling hours. It is also one of the few cherry trees that can be planted in full sun, even in zone 9 and handle the extreme summer heat in the south, yet cold hardy enough to handle the extreme cold in zone 5. Bob Wells specializes in edible landscape, including: Fruit Trees, Berry Plants, Vine Fruit, Nut Trees, as well as the hard to find Specialty Fruit Trees.
