You can only do this if you know your mushroom identification 110% perfect, that is you hone those survival skills. It’s not a matter of saying i don’t like mushrooms or whatever. If you want to have good survival skills you must know as many ways as possible to be self sufficient if you run out of food. Fishing, hunting and non-animal wild food gathering are important skills to have along with all the others (too many to list here).
