shtf, quietly pop 1-3 cows, jerk the meat

can be done at night, pretty safely. Instead of wandering around with a shotgun, getting the ocassional rabbit and getting sniped. :-) even if "all" you can do is run off with a 100 lb hindquarter, 3 of those in a week's time and you've got the same meat as 150 rabbits. How will you gather up 150 rabbits in a week, hmm? never happen, probably not in month, without burning up as many calories as you'd get back, getting sniped in the process. Shotgun's stupid choice, guys.

where's the farmer/rancher gonna hide a bunch of cattle, hmm? almost every one of them has a lot more animals than will fit in his barns/sheds and he'd have to have room for feed, arrange to water them, and doing all that makes him easy to snipe. That will be obvious to anyone. Smart farmers will just butcher 1-2 cows early on, stash the jerky and themselves in a dugout, where they can watch over their buildings, without being found so easily.

depending upon terrain, your means of carrying it, the size of the quarter and your strength/fitness, maybe you'll pick a 400 lb yearling's front leg, or a 1500 lb steer's hind quarter. :-) i"ve seen a 110 lb Korean TROTTING with a 350 lb 55 gallon drum of diesel fuel. :-) Over there, it was common to see such things. They would make an "a frame" pack skeleton from saplings and leather. They'd make the legs of the pack such that they'd come within 6" or so of the ground. When they wanted to get into or out of the harness, they'd just squat a little. You can lift tremendous weights, the last few inches at the top of a squat. Once you've got it up, you lean forward, and take short steps. the momentum of the weight "falling" (sort of) helps you keep moving.

A man once lifted a 6 ton elephant, by means of having it led up a ramp, onto a platform of steel, set atop "legs" of telescoping steel pipes. He laid on his back and pressed the platform upwared about an inch.
