tanasi, I will concede that I misunderstood your post and its intent. For that, I apologize. Your response was an insult and personal in nature and it was out of line.

what is with the influx of "help me build my BOB" and "should I take my 308 and 50 cal, or just the Red Rider" posts?

There is such a thing as a search......

While I'm not sure how a deer cart can replace a BOB, I can see how it could be helpful in porting your BOB. Fwiw, those deer carts are handy, but not as easy as you claim in heavily wooded and very hilly areas when loaded with a couple hundred pounds of dead deer...

The cart sure does make getting a deer out of the woods a lot easier much better than dragging. I used mine a good bit last season hauling a couple of deer, moving my stand from one place to another etc. It rolls easily on good ground but was pure hell in thick woods. One good aspect of it is that weight can be placed so that the cart has a natural balance.

My SHTF bag is an "alice pack"

300rds of 5.56 in mags, 11 MREs, a GOOD firstaid kit, a small survival kit(lighter, matches, mutli-tool, AA flashlight, fingernail clippers) a cigar and a pint of bourbon.

All **** talking aside.. my BOB just has some essentials: fixed blade knives, fishing line and hooks, fire starters, dryer lint, emergency ponchos, emergency tent, LOTS of parachute cord, sharpening stone, compass, mirror..etc... anything that will come in handy if need be.. did I mention LOTS of parachute cord??? you can never have too much rope..

just remember, if you have at least 2 weeks worth of food/supplies, you are doing better than most.. While everyone else is scavenging or begging for supplies, you will have a head start. You can be looking for supplemental food/water/supplies while everyone else is trying to survive their first day..

Default i may just be thinking like a teenager here buuuut...

a kel tec SUB-2000 would seem to make a fine addition, they are really compact, and i hear they have a durable case you can get for them so personally i guess if i had the resources i would have that in there.
