With October rapidly approaching, the forests, hills and woodland areas, commonly call GMU (Game Management Units) here in the lovely State of Washington, will soon be filled with the wily hunter.
Some of these folks will be seasoned veterans of the sport while others will be newbies. Some will be very responsible and file a trip plan with their significant other, while others will just not think it necessary to do so. Some will even take proper gear and clothing, some will not. Others will be as bold to say; “that will never happen to me, I have the proper gear and clothing; you mean I should have tested and trained with it first before I engage in my hunting adventure?”
My search and rescue and wilderness experiences over the last 25 some years have taught me that no one is exempt from Murphy's Law, not even me. So I’m here today to ask hunters this simple question. Are you ready?
Take a look at my systems of survival and then have a look at yours.
