A few days ago I was walking along the creek that is the property line between my land and the timber company land. Not only does the timber company grow timber on their land, they also lease the land out to hunters. It is not unusual to see an influx of urban dwellers into rural areas starting a couple of months before hunting season. Most of the people who lease property in rural areas are good people. They just want to get out of the city, do some hunting, get a deer or hog and pass the tradition of hunting to the next generation. With hunters there is an unspoken code of respect.

The SHTF, 3 days later people are angry, hungry and tired. What would be considered normal behavior in that kind of situation? Would it be ok to steal? Would it be ok to loot? Would it be ok to fight? How about pulling a gun on someone that objected to your behavior, would that be ok?
Fox News has an interesting article – Superstorm Sandy brings out the worst in some

I had a rather strange dream last night (July 28, 2012). The dream was about aliens had decided the human population had grown past a point of no return. We were breeding, polluting,and consuming more then the earth could supply.

The powder covered tens of thousands of people, who in the following days developed the virus, which was contagious between people. The result was millions of people died.
My dream moved from the aliens crop dusting the major cities, to people roaming the streets stealing and killing for food.
One of my sons had it to my house. I was somewhere, but I do not remember my exact location. Somehow, I called my son and told him to start eating my food stockpile. I also told my son about keeping lights on at night, and how that could draw attention.
Somehow or another my wife and I made it home.
The dream was somewhat dark with lots of death and destruction. Continue Reading….
Think your Bug Out Location is safe? Think again. Looters will overrun your camp, kill you and your family, take your supplies and there is little you can do about it.
The difference between you and the looters, after they win the war in the cities, the looters will head to the countryside looking for food. The survivors from the cities will be battle hardened, have an idea of what they are doing, and will make short work of your defenses.
How many survivalist gets hands on training on using their weapons? How many people in your group have combat experience?
There is a difference in tactical shooting experience, and combat experience.
A lot of people thinking going out to the range and shooting paper targets will prepare them for when the crap hits the fan.
This video got me to thinking about the whole looter worse case situation.
