I end up spending almost all my time at work, my apartment, the gym, and city rec sports leagues. When I have free time I don't know what to do. I want to interact with people and want to meet people but often feel uncomfortable in public alone. To the point where I feel awkward and just spend my day in my apartment watching movies and reading.

How would they keep the meat from spoiling? I assume it would have to be cool temperatures to do this. How would they keep the meat safe from predators? If you hang it in trees, do you have to worry about birds or bugs getting to it? How would you deal with that? After dressing the animal and they have blood/guts on their hands, how would they cover or get rid of the scent so predators don't ,mistake them for prey? Essentially this sort of thing would be the way the Native Americans would do it, so how did they do it?
