I thank all of you guys for taking the time to list what you have. Now it is time for me to get started. With the crashing wallstreet, and the possible scenerios of the election it has me nervous about what is to come. I am going to be more prepared for anyhting that can and will happen.

By the way, I will not pack a handgun. I plan on packing either a longbow, flatbow, or a recurve bow. I live in WV and it is easier to hind in the woods and be silet with a bow. Also, I can make my own arrows should the need arise.

Thank everyone again. You were more than helpful!

Not to nit pick, but how well can you defend yourself against a group of thugs with firearms with just a bow? Even the American Indians upgraded from bows to rifles. Bows are perfect for stealthy hunting and long term survival in the wilderness if you can make your own arrows, but you may want to consider something more modern if you envision being in a defensive situation. Be careful of where you intend to go too. Make sure it is your land or you have permisson to be on it. Some folks tend to get a little mad about tresspassers.
