"We're All Born Hunters" - Americans Turn To Hunting Game Amid Pandemic Food Shortage

•, Tyler Durden

Supermarket chain Kroger reported Friday that it has put "purchase limits" on ground beef and fresh pork at some of its stores following growing concerns of food supply chain disruptions. We noted last month that meat shortages could be seen at grocery stores across the US in the first half of May. The pandemic and all its chaos have led some Americans to purchase a hunting rifle and venture into the wilderness to hunt big-game to put food on their tables. 

Reuters interviews several Americans and reviews hunting license data on a state level to determine that a growing number of people are hunting food big-game to feed their families during the pandemic.
