Seems like a death sentence to just head out like that.
You hide. You don't engage, you HIDE.
I have serious doubts that many people will escape to the forest, and even MORE serious doubts that most of them will survive for very long. Most of
the people who bail out to the woods will get there, sit around a few hours, then say "now what?". They will have starved to death or succumbed to
the elements before long. You just have to out-hide and out-wait them.
Hiding may not be very glamorous, manly, or Rambo-ish, but it presents a far better outlook for survival. There are LOTS of rabbits out there, because
they can hid really well. Not so many bears, wolves, or lions...
I prefer being a live chicken to being a dead hero.
Another thought is HOW you are even going to get to the woods to begin with. All of those other folks you mention headed that way have the same
considerations. Most will take roads - which are nothing but game trails for the packs of predatory humans you mention.
Predators exist in the ecosystem to thin out the herd. Stay off the game trails.
