Learn to make a self bow. The details if how to do so are in the "traditional bowers bible". The reason a bow is practical is because you can always make one. Some methods can be made very quickly like the 'bundle bow' or 'Penobscot bow'.
All hunting methods depend on your ability to find and stalk prey so practice tracking and movement. Get this down and you can take all you need with just a stick.
There are various styles of shooting a bow. I like to use a thumbring. Practice until you learn to fire instinctually. Until then make sure to cant the bow slightly so you can look over the arrow and point it at your target, then you need only get the hight right.

Happy hunting!

To see your buddy taken out by a broad head through the chest while next to him would be way more psychologically damaging than a bullet

This ^

It used to take apprentices 25 years before they could come out from under the artisans wing making bows. They then spent the next 25 becoming and artisan. So they spent a liftime creating the perfect bow.

How long will your bow last? Forever oh yeah right...

Actually a broadhead will penetrate soft armor or a bullet proof vest as you call it, better than a hand gun round as would a knife. Never discount an edged weapon and yes a broadhead is an edged weapon

Actually, in a SHTF scenario odds are much higher that your main concern will be hunting food than fighting jack-booted thugs (and in the latter case you will rapidly lose no matter what weapon you have). Being able to harvest game without announcing it to the entire county will be an asset, so a bow or crossbow will do just fine.

Ad oh yeah, an arrow (or knife, icepick, etc. for that matter) will go through a "bullet proof" vest as if it weren't even there. Kevlar is a fabric, albeit a tough one but all it does is catch and deform the soft lead bullet. A sharp pokey-thing will get through no problem.

And to prove my point I will buy you the soft armor of your choice and in return you stand 30 downrange of me and my compound bow and a single broadhead. Deal?

I build bullet proof vests. Arrows don't flip sideways when they hit armor, so all their energy remains focused on a small point and it spreads the fibers gaining entry beyond the soft body armor. Hard armor is different. It will stop an arrow. But, if someone is good with an arrow, they will shoot it just above the leg where the femoral artery is and you will die fast.

Hence, why some vests have areas to insert stab panels.

Some good (easy to read and informative) tech docs on this site.

I don't know if 300 fps with and expandable broadhead will penetrate a bullet-proof vest, but it will go through you.

Really? a broadhead is much more damaging to body armor than a bullet ,unless your firing a high powered rifle like a 30-06. perhaps you should go back to your tv,as you dont know anything about the weapon.

A head shot, then a bullet proof vest really does not matter. With no sonic waves to alert the listeners.
