If that guy is serious about surviving in the woods by hunting, then he better make sure he has weapons better suited to hunting small game and fowl.
He's going to go through his ammunition in 1 winter if he's using that AK or SKS. If TSHTF, then he's going to have a limited supply of ammunition,
and it's a waste of resources to be using 7.62x39 to take down a small game hen (not to mention messy).
He seems to be concerned about concealment. Well, nothing gives away your location faster than hunting for small game with a large caliber
semi-automatic rifle. He needs a smaller caliber rifle to lessen his audio profile and for simple economic/resources reasons as well.
He needs to get a couple (if not 3 or more) .22 rifles (so 2 people can hunt at once, and back up in case 1 breaks - remember: your life depends on
these rifles), stock up a LOT of .22 rounds inexpensively, and get a few shot guns in the 20 gauge range.
If the TSHTF, the big game could run out after a few years, and even so, most protein sources will come from small critters, not big ones. Hunting
for survival with guns, in the long run, is a losing proposition anyways. He better have seeds, seeds, and more seeds.
