In episode 2 of this wilderness survival series we seek out monster sea clams on the beaches of Maine, USA. The goal is to replace any calories we burn foraging for wild foods in order to balance our energy expenditures as modern foragers. SHOVEL:
This shovel can interchange with the axe, pick-axe, trekking pole and ice pick. There are also extension tubes to make the handle longer, all of them can be found at the Amazon store:

We start off the day eating alewife or river herring which we dip netted the day before. I’ll make fish egg and milt stew or soup which is full of energy and calories. This is all about survival and eating the foods that we can easily forage and scavenge from wild sources. We are really trying to balance our calories eating only wild edibles.
We will show you how to cook and clean the clams and eat the stomach. We will remove the skin and also purge and wash the clams and boil in water.
Malcolm makes a dandelion wild spinach boiled green.
Malcolm ‘The Hidden Woodsman”:
The Wilderness Living Challenge is not a “survival challenge,” but more like a test of the modern hunter gatherer to sustain himself on wild foods only. We will weight ourselves at the start of the challenge and weight out at the end. If we lose any weight at all, we lose the challenge!
Check out Zach Fowler:
Follow along as we struggle to get wild foods!
I am joined by Zach Fowler on his home turf in Maine, USA in the spring.
Here, we plan to do Season 5 of The Wilderness Living Challenge. The goal of the challenge is to gain or maintain our body weight eating only the wild food we can collect on site using whatever means necessary.
Winning the Wilderness Living Challenge is harder than it seems.
Season 5: Maine Spring, takes place in Maine, USA with coastal food priorities including fish, clams, crab, seaweed, groundhog, pigeon, turkey, dandelion, cattail, and whatever else is edible! Nothing is off the menu, if it’s edible, we’ll eat it.
We make use of all the resources in this challenge to meet the demands for calories imposed by the human body!
