    Even if I was starving, unless I've turned to cannibalism or decided I wanted some lead in my diet, I'm not going to run towards the gun shots.

    I have no idea where you would get the idea that hungry people would interpret gun shots as food.

      You spend 40+ years as a professional hunter, you equate a gun shot with dead game animal.

      One day you eat the chicken.....next day the left-over chicken.....next five days you eat chicken feathers, head and feet.

        In normal times maybe.. I can understand that. But in an SHTF situation? I think a hungry person is more likely to go elsewhere rather than run to someone armed with a hunting rifle.

          Maybe........but if there are 37 people in that group or 77 people in a group who are starving and dying, they can risk sending a lot of humans. Even if the shot was someone killing someone, the dead person makes a lot of stew.

          And they may well have 77 people armed with rifles.

          Notice how it always comes back around to hiding from humans.

            You think 37 or 77 starving people in a group are just going to be wandering around the deep woods acting and making decisions as one large organism?
            Sorry man, but you and I have two very different ideas on what SHTF would be like...

            I tend to lean more towards New Orleans, Bosnia, and what historical precedent has shown.

              And your willing to wager the wellbeing of your loved ones on that.........it is fine. We all get to choose. And if there is a test.......(and I believe there will be a test).......that test will only have two possible grades, and one of those grades sucks.

              I'll not argue with you, I'll not even attempt to alter your chosen course. I actually hope you are correct.

                I'm pretty confident there will never be a test in my, or your, lifetime.. but just in case...

                  Have you looked into researching yachty-grade stuff ?
                  Anything that will carry on working during a ghastly 'Roaring Forties' gale while being flung from side to side and drenched with brine has much to commend it...

                  Another would be to look at the stuff eg USGS use for remote sensor stations. Ham repeaters may bear investigation...
