As woodsmen & woods women we spend a good deal of time in the woods whenever we can, one of the things many of us do is seek out wild edible foods to supplement foods that we are carrying. Bracken fiddle heads are widely known to be an edible food, BUT, they can also be dangerous to eat! These fiddle heads are carcinogenic, they are less so if cooked/boiled, but never totally safe! My advice is to not eat them at all unless it was an emergency & there was no other sources of food available. Personally I can't see this happening, we nearly always have the option of eating fresh game. You can survive up to roughly three weeks without food depending on your health, your exertion levels & you must have a good drinking water supply.
