Most survivalist believe that they can hunt for food during any disaster.

Most survivalists believe that they can sit in front of a TV, drink beer and watch sporting events.  When a disaster strikes they believe that they can pick up their rifle and head for the hills.  In the hills they believe that they can survive by hunting their own food.
 
Unless they hunt on a regular basis their chances of getting a deer are quite remote.  After bagging a deer they will need to preserve the meat and transport it.  All the while avoiding having it taken from them by another hunter.
 
If another hunter wants your deer and if you are lucky he will demand that you put the deer and rifle down and allow you to leave the area.  If you are not lucky he may shoot you without warning.
 
I do not advocate that people who do not hunt on a regular basis head for the hills and hunt to survive.  Hunting is a skill that takes years to develop.
 
Better to remain in situ and hunt small game with a sling shot or small bore rifle.  There are many small animals that live in your neighborhood that can be hunted to agument your food supply.
 
For example, mice, rats, possums, racoons and birds.
