    My biggest fear is that Scumbama (Obama) willmake it more difficult, if not impossible for sportsmen like ourselves to get into the woods and feel the Spirit of The Wild like Ted Nugent says. I think we need to do something about our current Communist Dictatores plan to destroy this country and the rest of the world. I mean now.

      Not too fearful but am always careful of where I hunt to minimize the exposure to idiots (I have had a couple of close calls that have taught me to be even more careful who I am around with guns. My biggest concern is probably not being able to get back to civilization or camp before dark in the darned Florida palmetto swamps. The GPS or compass tells us where to go but you can't get there from here... too much water, palmettos you just can't navigate, water moccasins, etc. I just never wanted to spend an unexpected night out in the swamp. I don't think I could sleep as well as most other places.

        Oh yeah and Cougars scare the hell out of me too just because they are sneaky and are following you around more than you even know. If you have hunted or hiked enough in cougar country, you have likely been stalked to some degree. They're not like bears where they might just false charge or ignore you. They are either out of sight or they are about to eat you. The 2 scariest things in the world are the unknown and imminent death. Cougars are always one or the other or both!

              fellows, the most dangerous thing we do is getting in our vehicles and driving to our hunting spot.

              I worry slightly about getting shot by another hunter anyway [or getting injured in some other way]. As a teenager got over worrying about getting truly lost, but I can still get "micro" lost meaning I don't know where I am [walked past my landmark probably} and have to navigate myself back to something I recognize.

                Ticks. Not many people around me and nothing lives here that can really kill me. So yeah, ticks.

                      My biggest fear in the woods is a cougar. One could stalk you so quietly that you would never know it was there and already attack you before you can fire a shot. This fear is somewhat rational since I had a bad encounter with one as a child. The only defense after being attacked would be a knife, which I always carry.
