What Should Be Packed In the Zombie Survival Gear?
In your bug out bag, you should pack the essentials food, water, shelter and fire. You will also need some kind of tent and a compass, maps of the area and the terrain are a good idea, but will only work if the terrain is still recognizable. A sleeping bag, knife and knife sharpener. Don’t forget to pack the axe, in case you have to show mercy to a zombie!
For food, try to pack ready to eat foods, and some canned food, and don’t forget the can opener. Some pills to purify your water when yours runs out, and if a tent didn’t make it into your pack, use a solar blanket, this may be in your med kit, or plastic bag to help shield you from the elements. The other consideration in packing may be a change or two of clothes, so you aren’t mistaken for an ill dressed zombie.
Some other handy tricks to learn are how to start a fire, how to hunt for animals than for zombies, rather, look for small animals that will fit on the small fire that you learned how to make.

You may be able to set up a simple snare trap made from forming a noose knot, one of the knots you hopefully learned in boy or girl scouts.
A word of caution, if you think you may have caught something in your trap, approach it carefully. If the animal looks like it may have the zombie virus and shows signs of having a dog collar or other tell-tale signs of a previous owner, don’t eat it and you may want to show fluffy some mercy with the axe.
