Actually, it means "LIFE OR DEATH". Shooting any wild animal under this term can result in severe jail time where you will need a whole new set of survival skills. Preserving your chasity will be one of them! However, if you choose to go the route you've previously stated, don't forget the pics, especially the "front and profile" view of your face with the numbers under your chin. I can see it all now:

    OFFICER: "Excuse me sir, but do you realize you just shot a wild game animal illegally?"

    BLAKE: "It's okay officer, I'm here doing "recreational survival."

    OFFICER: "Hmmm, never heard of that one, turn around please & spread your feet apart."

    BLAKE: (getting alarmed.) "No, officer, you don't understand, I'm here doing "recreational survival;" don't I have any rights?"

    OFFICER: "Absolutely! You have the right to remain silent...."

    Good luck.
    Thanks for bringin me down Sarge, here I thought I'd found a loophole.

    If I ever get caught poachin I'm just gonna pretend I'm lost. LOL! Make sure I wear raggedy AZZ clothes and rub dirt all over my face. "Thank God you found me officer. I've been wanderin round these woods for weeks."

    Alright, well, I'm off to bed. I'll check back when I get up so I can see the string of threads as you catch up. Again...sorry for my reaction earlier. I hope we can still be friends. And just so you know, I didn't know what numpty meant so I took your advice and looked it up on Google. Here is what I found:

    "Someone who (sometimes unwittingly) by speech or action demonstrates a lack of knowledge or misconception of a particular subject or situation to the amusement of others."

    I guess that's fair enough. Good night.

    Ok, so if you were in a life and death survival situation, and you killed animals out of season, would you still be punished for your crimes? Or could you get your crimes pardoned if you could prove to the court system that you were actually in a survival situation?
    Does anyone even know an answer to this question?

    I'm sure every state is different but my boys just took their hunter's safety course and I sat in as well. The instructor mentioned a law where if your actions are to insure your survival, it isnt a crime however you still may be fined. His instructions were to then contest the fine and argue your case to a judge. If the judge believes you were in a survival situation, the case will be thrown out.

    A forest ranger is making rounds in a remote part of the wooded reserve when he comes across an unkempt man, sitting at a makeshift campfire. To the ranger's horror, the man is eating a fish and a bald eagle.
    He immediately arrests the man and puts him in jail. The following morning, the man appears before the Judge.

    "Are you aware that eating a Bald Eagle is a federal offense?" asks the Judge.

    "Yes, I am," replies the man, "but please allow me to explain what happened."

    "You may proceed," instructs the Judge.

    "I was lost in the woods and hadn't had anything real to eat for two weeks," explains the man. "I was so hungry, I was eating plants to stay alive."

    "Then one day, I arrive at a lake. I see a Bald Eagle swooping down to the water and flying away with a fish in its talons. I thought, 'if I startled the Eagle, maybe I could steal the fish.'"

    "Low and behold, the eagle lighted upon a nearby tree stump to eat the fish. So, I picked up a rock and threw it. I meant to hit the stump and startle the bird. I hoped he would drop the fish and fly away."

    "Unfortunately, in my weakened condition, my aim was off. The rock hit the eagle squarely on his poor little head, and killed it. I agonized over what had happened, but I figured that since it was dead I might as well eat it."

    The Judge says he will take a recess to analyze the defendant's statement. Fifteen minutes later, the Judge returns.

    "Due to the extreme circumstances, and because you did not intend to kill the eagle, the court will dismiss the charges." The Judge then leans over the bench and whispers, "If you don't mind my asking, what does a bald eagle taste like?"

    "Well, Your Honor, it's a little difficult to explain," the defendant says. "The best way I can describe it is to say that it's far more tender than a California Condor, but the meat is quite bland compared to a Spotted Owl."

    Asked and answered.

    As a rule, if you break the law (irrespective of the motivation), you should plan on paying your "debt to society." If you get off with less, then consider it a happy bonus.

    My guess is that here in Indiana you'd be fined no matter what. Where ever you get lost you can walk about 1000 yards in any direction and find a road. With the exception of just a handful of locations wilderness around here is driving six blocks and not passing a Stabucks.

    Camp, I don't understand how they can say it isn't a crime but still fine you. I'll tell you all, if I'm in that situation, it ain't going to matter to me what the law says. I think that there is one of them moot points.
    some fella confronted me the other day and asked "What's your problem?" So I told him, "I don't have a problem I am a problem"
