Is Doug Huffman on Doomsday Preppers Right?

Doug Huffman understands a great deal regarding defense from a practical perspective. As stated by him, he is a raider's 'worst nightmare' and soon after seeing his compound on the program, I was ready to agree. His system is among the most in depth viewed on doomsday preppers

1. Root cellar

The concept of a root cellar must be important to any prepper planning to store food with no electricity. Keeping your stores in the basement won't have the identical effect as an actual root cellar, which has the advantages of keeping a lower temperature and constant level of moisture. For your bug out spot or homestead, the highest amount of humidity and temperature stability may be achieved at a depth of about 10 feet. It might be hard to do this by hand so consider building whilst the infrastructure is still around.

2. Producing food over time

Apart from keeping food long-term, Doug has wisely thought about renewable food sources. Doug is thinking of garrisoning his homestead with many younger trainees. Having stashed food items might put him in the problem of deciding on how long he planned to eat compared to just how protected he wished to be. Renewable food sources lets him to nourish his group and accept newcomers if he needs to.

The concept of rabbits as a food source is very interesting. Among the details mentioned on the show is that a single breeding female can develop 320 lbs of meat each year via offspring! Thinking about this a little more seriously I found that rabbits will create 6 lbs of meat on the identical quantity of food and water required for a cow to produce one lb of meat. For these reasons rabbit meat is an extremely environmentally sound source of proteins and surely one to think about for the future homesteader.

One more significant use of rabbits is as generators of warmth

3. Protection strategy

Doug has an extremely comprehensive defense plan which makes a lot of sense when it comes to his unique mix of food sources. Rather than straightforwardly taking on all comers, he is aiming to let any trespassers in his terrain, then using his commando training to take them away one at a time. Doug outlined that he is an invader's worst nightmare, and by killing thieves one at a time any person on his terrain might feel as if they were in a horror video.

With many recruits by his side, Doug is very well equipped against the less savory human element that might come up right after the fall of the food model. With the level of training he is taking them through no doubt all of them will be able to believe an identical plan, hiding out in plain sight or in a spider hole and coming back again during the night to pick off the thieves. Whilst the show criticized the potential lack of resources readily available, this is ignoring the truth that a lot of the food available is truly renewable.
