Selecting the right game cart bug out kit can be tricky as it will depend on a whole host of factors.
1. Firstly, you’ll need to consider the terrain between you and your bug out location or “BOL”.
2. Secondly, you’ll need a plan as to what your game cart will be used for on a day to day basis.
3. Thirdly, you’ll need to consider what happens if your game cart breaks or the tires puncture.
Once you have these considerations down, you’ll be able to make a choice that should make your survival a lot easier.
The main reason for having a game cart bug out kit is to help you move incredibly large and bulky items around in a situation where you can’t get a vehicle up the track or all vehicles have been knocked out by an electromagnetic pulse.
The type of game cart bug out kit you’ll choose will be dependent on the terrain near to your home:
The terrain consideration should narrow down your possible game cart choices considerably. The next thing you’ll need to consider is what you’re going to use the game cart for. Very few people will actually go out and hunt the kind of big game that gives the game cart its name as it’s too hard to cut it up and use effectively. However, a game cart could be used to transport lots of smaller items to a new camp in one go, or to carry heavy boulders around to make a security ring around your camp. Only buy the size that you think you’ll need, otherwise you’ll be dragging round unnecessary weight.
In a post apocalyptic world, you won’t be able to buy replacement wheels or parts for your game cart bug out kit. Therefore you need to look carefully at each model to see how easy it would be to make replacement parts or to make minor fixes to keep you on the road. Many game cart companies will sell sets of spare wheels, tires and moving parts which may be worth investing in ahead of time. You should also plan to lay in some engine grease to keep everything moving smoothly.
