There are a ton of edibles west of the Cascades, not so many around our east side location. The only one I know of is the wild salsify. I tried that and then prayed to God I would never have to eat it in order to eat it to survive. There are blue elderberries, choke cherries and service berries but probably not in quantities that would be a huge help for survival and we'd have to range far to gather them. There are a few feral apricot trees along the lake shore, but, again, pretty far away.

If someday they do, we'll just install a 2nd 7' fence a foot or so on the outside of the current fence - that should stop the buggers!
No one hunts on our property - else they'd be shot. We don't eat land based animals...
