Here is a useful link for making home made pemmican. Pemmican stores well and is a good source of emergency high energy food for those compelled to bug out on foot. http://www.tacticalintelligence.net/blog/how-to-make-pemmican.htm and some youtube videoclips with some good ideas for making pemmican. and on a nutritional note, pemmican is high in saturated fats if using tallow as a binder / preservative... which is not a heart friendly foodstuff if consumed as a dietary staple. However, if dying of starvation is a more immediate threat to one's life than the risk of congestive heart disease, I think I'd chance the pemmican gladly. P.S. for those interested in how he made his dehydrator, here is the youtube link.
