Mr. Petersen, you are correct in my reasoning behind carrying the gear that I do. It makes my wife feel better about me being “alone” in the woods. And she is also the reason I have the desire to get back home after dark. When I have planned a multi-day trip in advance, there is no worry.

I also agree with eidsvolling in that my choice to carry some gear is directly proportional to the many hours I have spent looking for a completely unprepared hunter as a SAR volunteer. It is almost certain that when we turn out to look for a lost hunter, the only gear they have is weapon, ammo, license, and cell phone. Even when lost, a small amount of gear can make all the difference in getting found again.
