If you or your hunting partner is lost, do you know what to do and what you should not do?
Several years ago I went hunting with two very experience hunters who had been hunting together for several years. One of the guys had his 25 year old son with him. They got turn around and could not find there way out, they were just 3 or 400 yards from a swamp and home. They had no GPS or compass and were bow hunting so they could not fire a location shot. When it got dark they were screwed, stumbling around in the brush and no flashlight for 7 hrs. What added to there frustration was his partner kept driving up and down the swamp firing his 44 until he rand out of ammunition. That turned out to be a blessing, because they walk to the last gun shot and found the swamp.
I know what to do and I carry most items to get home and was surprise to find out my very experience hunting partners were a couple of dummies.
Have you ever talked to your partner and discuss what to do if you or he gets lost?
Do you carry a whistle, or compass?
