    Communal Hunting
      US - Northeast
    Trapping in the conventional sense is often associated with the actual tool used in the capture of game. In this paper it is meant as the method in which land is modified or utilized for the purpose of trapping game in a contained area where butchering can take place. One advantage of this type of hunting strategy over individual attempts is that it is more energy-efficient, demanding less energy expenditure per individual in the hunting process.

    Lenapé Food
    The Native American domesticated more plants than any other race of man. Among these were corn, potatoes, coffee, beans, squash (pumpkins), strawberries, peas, tomatoes, cranberries, grapes, plums and apples. Without these domesticated plants, the permanent settling of the continent would have been much more difficult. Eventually these crops impacted cultures all over the world. The potato alone kept generations of Europeans from starvation. According to reports of the time, Lenapé women were unsurpassed as cooks. They cooked two meal a day, but generally kept something on the fire throughout the day. Their diet was rich and varied. Corn was by far the main staple, but was fixed in a variety of ways. In addition to their crops there were wild nuts and berries. They tapped the maple trees and boiled the sap for sugar and syrup.

    PSG FAQ: Food
    Plants are the major source of carbohydrates in a survival situation, in addition to being under most circumstances more easily available. The problem with plants is that you need to know what you are doing when using them. This is of course also true when it comes to hunting, but in general the only consequence of messing up is that you don't get anything to eat, perhaps with the exception of fishing with rapid expanding bait and shooting at anything that moves.
