have you ever seen the film into the wild or read the book?
Saw the film. Poor kid. Just a little bit of survival training could have saved him. Starving to death surrounded by food. He even took down a moose and let all the meat spoil. If he had even just scraped the fat off of the internal organs (suet, where there is always some fat even in a fairly lean kill) and rendered it down to oil he could have lived another eight weeks. He could have stayed by his kill lit a fire, cleaned the intestines then chopped the haunch meat up and stuffed them with some of the suet and smoked them and had food for yet another six weeks. It would have taken him half a day.
