What to do When You're Lost in the Woods

Dallas sent me this har:

A man stranded in the bush in northern Saskatchewan was rescued last week after chopping down four power poles — knocking out electricity to surrounding communities.

The incident left several hundred people in Wollaston Lake and Hatchet Lake Denesuline Nation without power for more than 30 hours, but it paved the way for a man to be saved by a SaskPower crew.

“He was found under his boat in a very distressed state, so essentially he was stranded for a number of days and just desperate for people to know where he was,” SaskPower spokesman James Parker said.

Silly man. What you do when stranded in the woods is: you shoot an owl. Animal rights weenies will show up within 20 minutes. You can live off of them until help arrives. (Yes, they're a little stringy and have a distinct patchouli aftertaste but they're protein)
