    So, he is likely one of those types who think that society us going to collapse soon - and that he is among the few who are ready for it? I have heard about the S**t Hits The Fan crowd, seen some of "their" videos - from what I have seen, I suspect many of these people will be the first to get hurt/killed, should an incident like that actually happen.
    Should the s**t really hit the fan one day, people dressed up in fake military uniforms, acting like this guy, would end up getting hurt - or, more likely, hurting them selves - really fast. I think the best advice I have ever seen in a SHTF video is; Do not try to look like or impersonate a law enforcement or military professionel, in the event of at total breakdown, these guys will attract a lot of attention from: A. People seeking your protection, slowing you down and possibly wearing out your recourses. B. People who know that you are in posession of valueable recourses, like weapons, ammunition, medical supplies and field rations (or any other kind of food), wishing to steal these from you, most likely hurting you in the process. C. Frustrated/maddened individuals and groups who might see you as an representative of the system that let them down - causing you to be a prime target for their (violent) anger. I can't find that particular video, but the guy behind it advices the viewer to lose the tactical nylon, OD jumpsuit and military looking AR pattern rifles. In an actual SHTF event, looking like everyone else, actually increases your chances of getting out alive and in one piece, with your survival gear and other recourses hidden in a plain looking backpack. Sound advice IMHO.

    Recognised the bow, we have one like that we use for our Have-a-go archery at fetes and reenactments. I get 8 year-olds to be as accurate with it at our animal face targets in about 5 minutes. But then why shouldn't he be able to play in the woods? I do in our wood.

    BUt, should add that I am not a survivalist, just waiting to know what I want to be when I grow up.

    What gets me about this guy is that he has left on or even worse sewn on Military identifying insignia - that just begs for trouble.

    I'm with JEEP.

    It is better to die as a wolf than living like a dog.

    jeep- realy good point about that SHTF situation thing with wearing military clothing, an excellent point in fact! i usually wear dpm or other camo when i know i'm gunna get mucky, as they are my hunting clothes and i can get those as dirty or smelly as i like.

    He started with five arrows and ended with four, Hummmm! he must have lost one. I admit I do wear a lot of military kit when out and about, but then I got it free, so I'm just being frugal with my pennies. I just can't believe he's wearing a Beret, it has to be the most impractical head gear in the woods.

    I totally reject your reality and substitute my own.
