Matt Hayden spent the last year teaching himself how to make pelts from road kill animals. Now, he's perfecting his raccoon stew recipe. He wants to survive on local resources found in nature. Not an outlandish idea  for a guy who lives on Martha's Vineyard, an island that gets a lot of its supplies shipped in on ferry boats.
