Thread: MAG Scenario

    It doesnt bother me personally so much other than I restated it three times and I was still misquoted. It's just irritating.

    The OP stated in his scenerio that the fam was starving but surviving which is an oxymoron to start with so I doubt they had the means or the know how the live off the land. Even in a serious SHTF situation, I believe some people will still reach out for one another in a positive manor. People tend to band together in a crisis and as time goes by, the bad are weeded out, one way or another.
    Remember what Einstein said:
    I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.

    You scope a distant farmhouse or a small ranch house in a wooded area, but you observe from afar. A father, mother and son are discovered to be starving, yet surviving off the land. There are trespassing signs/ bodies of former trespassers. You desire to join this family and keep yourself alive, while mutually offering manual labor in farming, security, handyman, etc. You need a plan to approach this family because they will shoot on sight. But if they know you are willing to help, they will let you in.

    How would you approach this family?
    After observing the family for a couple days I noticed that no one ever left the the cabin area to hunt even though I had seen plenty of both small game and big game in the area. From this observation I guessed that either they knew nothing of hunting or were reluctant to send anyone out to hunt because they were afraid it would leave the two remaining with too little firepower to fend off another raider attack. Using this theory I got behind a big tree for cover and waved a white flag to get their attention without giving them a clear shot at me.

    At that point I would offer to shoot a deer/elk and bring to them to show my worth if they would consider allowing me to stay with them on at least a temporary trial basis as their hunter/gatherer. If they said no I would fade back into the woods and continue my journey. Or if I was a bad guy I would lay in wait and snipe each family member whenever someone exited the cabin. Then I would take it over as my own.

    There is a possible scenario.

    And not an unlikely one on the last part either. Desperate times create bad people unfortunately.
    One day somebody's gonna have to make a stand,
    One day somebody's gotta say enough!
