Default Foraging

In another thread Inspector said he mushroom hunts.

I think we're so detached from the food chain that some people might see foraging as weird or outdated, but I'm wondering what all you guys forage for?

In Texas it's all about the pecans. End of October till the end of November you'll see a ton of people int heir yards (and in other's yards) picking them up by the sackful.

What do you have in your area?

We have fruit, citrus and avocado around here. Other than that I forage for wild animals I can eat.

In my area, many forage for tossed beer cans and water bottles on the side of the road. Pretty sad IMHO.

Up here we pay a deposit on bottles and cans so we can return them for cash, but we also have recycling with the garbage, so people forage thru the recycle bags on garbage day.
I do all my hunting and foraging at the supermarket.

Don't be sorry, it is by choice. I would much sooner build something.

Today I am foraging for a place to sleep off my hangover. Should have never scheduled the guys to work today.

We had an issue with that when I was a kid. The police would out issuing tickets.

My friend and I woke up early on recycling day to do this. When other's caught on is when the issue started.
