    "The only thing I could see a cattail benefiting. Is for some fiber to crap out the above listed proteins."

    Very true
    A waste of time and effort in a survival scenario

    Yeah I kind of feel the same. But I used to eat the shoots as a kid, and remember them being pretty good. I'm more looking to expand my breadth of knowledge for camping and hunting.

    Unless you're a pregnant woman. Pine needle tea is an abortifacient. Ok, not all but Ponderosa Pine is one species that can.
