Because the zombie-deer apocalypse is nigh, everyone needs an underground deer shack. Atlas Survival Shelters of Montebello, Calif., will build you one made out of a shipping container or corrugated pipe. The one pictured above, is decorated in a deer-hunting theme and doubles as a hunting camp bunkhouse. This particular corrugated pipe model is 10 feet by 51 feet and costs somewhere in the mid-70s uninstalled.
The shelter comes with a master bedroom, bunks, kitchen, bath, entertainment center/living room, mud room, and other amenities, as well as a concealed escape hatch in case you need to outflank the undead whitetails pawing at the entry. Altas can bury these up to 42 feet underground and says they will last 200 years. Atlas shelters have appeared on several TV outlets, including the Travel Channel.
Do you need one? Probably. In the words of Dr. Johnny Fever, “When everyone is out to get you, paranoia is just good thinking.”
