I saw this amazing elk herd when I drove to Del Rey Beach in Gearhart, Oregon.  I parked my Volkswagen Vanagon in the lot, grabbed my HD camera, and snuck up on them all.  I came from the beach, and quietly walked through tall grass from behind to get the shot.  I hope you enjoy my footage.  This is raw news produced for our alternative news community – Survival Bros.  It’s not everyday Mother Nature allows us to see beauty on Earth like this.  Experience it.  Peace and love.

Former Marine Tactical Gypsy has an exclusive Survival Bros blog and new elk jerky recipe for you.  He hunts in Oregon with seven other buddies, and no matter how much they kill, they split the meat evenly so nobody is left out.  This season his hunting party terminated five bulls, producing around 225 pounds of meat each.  He has used the animal for sausage, country fried steaks, and thick jerky strips.  His favorite cut is the back strap, which runs on each side of the spine.  It’s the most tender part, and is amazing in a stew of vegetables and spices.  Simmer that on a low boil for awhile, and you have a man meal sure to satisfy.  Tactical Gypsy also told me he likes to pan sear the meat first, to lock in the juice.

To produce scrumptious elk jerky he cut slabs 1/4th of an inch thick, because they shrink.  His recipe calls for six or seven pounds of flesh, so he ends up with big nuggets to feast on.  Each hunk is approximately 4″ x 1″ wide.  The marinade calls for 4 1/2 cups of soy sauce, with plenty of Worcestershire depending on personal preference.  Mix in 1 pound of brown sugar, then a 8 oz. bottle of hickory liquid smoke flavoring.  Soak the elk in a bowl, or deep pan, and refrigerate for 12 hours..  After that, use a colander to run off the marinade.  Next, lay out the strips on the dehydrator trays evenly, with bigger pieces going on the bottom.  Sprinkle on coarse black pepper, turn the machine on high, and let her rip.  Check back every few hours, and rotate the racks as needed.  In 12 additional hours you’ll have a stash of jerky to devour, and give out to your friends.  Tactical Gypsy, if you are reading this, please save me a nug or two.  Survival Bros will have more blogs soon.  Check back often.  Likes, shares, and comments are appreciated.

Survivalism is hardcore. Man has to eat. My bro Tactical Gypsy took matters into his own hands, and seized an opportunity yesterday, killing a wild rabbit and cooking it on a beach bonfire in Oregon. He’s on the Paleo diet, and needs lots of protein to stay lean and healthy. He popped the furry friend with his Glock 40 upon first sight. One bullet put it down. Roger never knew what hit him.

It took about 45 minutes to smoke on the fire with some PBR baste. It’s a hearty meal for at least two. To cut up wood, the survivalist and former Marine battoned wood into small chunks with the Coast Products FX350. He is proud to rock this knife as part of this every day carry or EDC. It’s held up remarkably well, considering the tremendous beating Survival Bros has put on it. Great work demonstrating your ability to be self-sufficient Tactical Gypsy. Thanks for the story and picture. Survival Bros salutes you.

So you want to eat like a caveman. Well, before you hunt down that wild boar, let’s take a look at the Paleo Diet, and see if it agrees with you. Nom nom nom.

Where’s my beef, eggs, and chickens? I’m hungry. I will tell you what, even thinking about eating animals is making me salivate. However, I could never be a die hard Paleo devotee. Paleos now eat just seafood, meat, nuts, seeds, eggs, fungi, roots, fruits, and vegetables. They look down on carb-laced grains, legumes, salt, dairy products, refined sugars, and processed oils. Still, most on Paleo are likely recklessly scarfing GMO products, and heavily processed meats. Forget that. I prefer to eat some high-quality meats, and fresh fish like salmon, but mostly raw, living juice. Do you really want dead flesh rotting inside you for days? Gross. And last time I checked, carbs give you energy. I’m not giving up Dave’s Killer bread (Sin Dawg) for fungi. Yeah right.

I’m primarily liquitarian. I drink raw fruit and veggie juice, and add supplements, vitamins, and minerals. Drinking only liquids will help you feel lighter, and healthier. I do a 24 hour juice fast at least once a month, and go for 3-9 days twice a year or so. Try drinking just broth one day for a real challenge and natural cleanse.

If you are looking for a diet to gain muscle, you can do it on Paleo, or even as a vegan. The key is to find what your body likes. Testing yourself for food allergies is smart too. Maybe you’ve been eating wrong all along. These days I like consuming light meals. Meats bog me down. I’d rather drink a meal replacement shake with rice, or hemp protein powder. I also like eating peanuts, and that’s not on the Paleo diet. It’s a bean. OMG! Please… Pass the fluffy pancakes, and chunky peanut butter. Then I’m ready for some real physical activity. And another thing; what’s wrong with Greek yogurt? Nothing. That’s not worse for you than a fatty fast food burger. Get real Paleos. Some dairy is OK. Example #2: goats milk. #3: breast milk.

Sure our ancestors were scavengers, then hunter-gathers, but we are smarter and more advanced now. We have superfoods at our disposal. Research them online, and get to know your health food store. Plus, juice hardcore! Paleo is a fad. Contrary to the cavemen, carbs are not evil. Eat balanced. Eat often. Make your body a science project, and put in what you want to get out. Do work.
