    THE STUPID HUNTER, and here lately there have been mountain lions seen in WNC about a half a mile from my hunting spot.

          I've had so many adventures and misadventures around they world it's hard to identify what might be the most fearful. Most of the time I'm just happy to be there.

          I used to hunt elk in tough new country by myself a lot in really bad weather, heavy snow and fog and was concerned about getting lost. Of course, I have never been lost, but was pretty confused for a whole day once. Seemed like a year.

            During rifle season it is a bit unnerving knowing there are so many people in the woods with high powered rifles. The people i hunt with are responsible, safe gunhandlers, but you never know who else's out there. In rough terrain, miles from the truck, alone sometimes i fear i'll break a leg or something and have to limp out.

                Severe physical injury rendering you unable to travel. There are lots of negative outcomes potentially associated with this scenario.

                  Ishawooa.

                  I think you are right about severe physical injury. As you well know if an injury occurs in Rocky Mt Elk country there can be a whole lot of tough miles, plus freezing weather between you and camp, let alone between you and medical attention.

                      My fear is running out of time and having to go back to civilization. I am more at ease in the woods than in town. I guess stupid people worry me more as far as safety than any wild animals, and there are more dumb people per sq mile in town than in the forest. If I am going to get hurt or killed, I would rather go while doing what I love in the Mountains than some other more mundane worthless way back in town.

                        I learned to use a map and a compass in the Army and have (so far) never been lost. But it is always in the back of my mind. Boreal forrest on flat land or a Florida swamp is a bad place to be if you don't know how to find your way around in the woods. Slob hunters are a worry and getting injured way back in the woods is probably the worst. I have also had close calls with big Rattlers, Cottonmouths, a Bamboo viper and a banded Krait on different ocasions. A couple years ago a famous Herpetologist from this area was bitten way back in the woods of SE Asia by a baby Krait and died before he could be evacuated.
