What good will it do to be prepared to hunt post SHTF if everybody knows you are hunting just by hearing the gunshots? Thats as bad as running a generator will announce to the world that you have gas and food. Yeah, you can bow hunt and trap etc... but for those storing ammo, when it gets really bad and the common non-thinker gets really hungry... he hears your gun and it sounds like a big DINNERBELL! Where I live suppressors and silencers are illegal (I think). I'm just wondering how will you be able to work around that noise issue. Or will you be able to at all? Wll you have to gradually change to traps, snares and bows? Will you only use ammo as home defense after that point? It was just something that popped into my head and the more I thought about it, the more insurmountable the problem seemed?
