Anybody with children would if that was the ONLY option. If ever that was the ONLY option I would not feel a bit of remorse.

No there is always some form of wild food you can legally get your hands on....if you have the proper licence. It may not be that nice rabbit, deer or squirrel it may be crow or possum. But you being broke does not lessen the value of God's creation. Eat a fish, or better yet talk to your Church they will gladly give you food. If not I am sure some of your brothers and sisters on this sight will gladly open the cabinet. Look at hunters for the hungry proof every day!

I don't know exactly why some animals & birds were elevated to "game" status while others are just considered lowly pests, but some of the "pests" may be just as edible as the "game".

Here's a publication that covers ways of catching various species, some of which are non-protected species, some are highly protected, and some are "game".

https://utextension.tennessee.edu/publications/Documents/pb1624.pdf

Pigeon doesn't taste that much different than dove, and I bet the common English sparrow would make some delicious "bird poppers". Or how about a nice beaver for breakfast? Season open year round.

And although the season's not open year round, I'd bet the common crow tastes as good or better than any duck.

On a very serious note, if it should ever come to needing to break a law in order to prevent starving, it might be more feasible to trap critters than to be out hunting with a gun. And if things got that bad, you might be needing to save your ammo to defend what little food you catch, have, or find.

Carp and other "trash" fish could also be a good option for food.

don't forget catfish also in most instances. Also my older family members ate sucker fish, and a turtle eats very well as do frogs.

I remember my Grandfather wanting to share with us various aspects of how they survived during the Great Depression. And yep, they ate a lot of fish, although most was "hogged" or trapped rather than caught on a fishing line. We once had a "possum" dinner, so, yes, I've already eaten possum.

Back in his day, many of the people who were illegally hunting game, such as waterfowl and quail, sold it to the more financially wealthy. The money obtained from selling it would buy a lot more other food rather than just eating what was killed.

Selling wild game is also an illegal activity. Many people rob for food, whether it be robbing another man or nature it is still done by a thief. No matter the reason.
