How do you hunt for food in a big metro area when you are flat busted?

I saw some pigeons and squirrels in the park downtown but everybody was watching. What green things can you eat? Still have a few dollars left but not much. Slingshot, traps or what? Water supply is okay.

Nasty as it sounds, try dumpster diving behind food stores. They throw away a tremendous amount of food, most of which is perfectly edible.

a few bucks? That's enough Wal-Mart Ramen for at least a week! Also, find places that provide free condiments. You can make soup with that water you have plus a little ketchup. Relish is also good enough to eat on it's own.

I would think rats would be easier to catch over squirrels, also no one is going to villainize you for killing a rat.

You have to adapt and overcome. My first recommendation is to head to a 24 hr laundromat. You can generally remove the agitators without tools. Just unscrew the nut on top, remove the agitator and look underneath. Change left in pockets often collects under the agitators you can pick up 10 to 20 bucks per... More
