    Probably thousands of people die from heart attacks every year behind the wheel of a vehicle (which would not be surprising considering how much time we spend driving). But that doesn't stop us from getting in the driver's seat.

    I DO NOT advocate that just anyone should take to suddenly hunting alone. I started it as a kid in close proximity to my home in areas that were easily accessible in case someone needed to come looking for me. Worked my up (or rather out) from there. After a few decades one learns where his limits are and more than a few things about planning for the unexpected. I am very free about sharing that knowledge because 1) I believe the spiritual benefits of hunting alone far outweigh the possible dangers and 2) I don't want someone else learning from experience the same mistakes I have made. They likely wouldn't survive. My survival has been due to "skill" for sure. But also in a much larger part due to luck and/or divine intervention. The next guy can't count on that.

      In many years of conservation enforcement I have witnessed MANY dangerous situations but the worst one that immediately comes to mind was the time I walked up to check on a man sitting in the drivers seat in a parked car. When I looked through the car window, I saw he was slumped over asleep. Then I noticed that his rifle was beside him with the muzzle tucked under his chin. Then to my absolute horror I saw that his finger was through the trigger guard and on the trigger. I stepped back and signaled for my LE partner to come over for a conference at the back of the car. Fortunately for him, he partially woke up when he heard our voices and somehow removed his finger (wearing gloves, no less) without pulling the trigger. He pushed the gun aside and fell back asleep before I could return to the window. He could not understand why we wrote him a ticket for the loaded gun in the car!!!!

        Stupidest thing I have seen is people grabbing loaded weapons with way to much "warming" alchol in them.
