    I always carry too, when fishing in remote areas. It's kind of funny, I think fishing in the boonies we are probably much safer from two legged predators than we are when we go to the local quicky-mart....but there is something about isolation that just makes me want to be armed.

    A lot of our fears are often primal and based upon instincts evolved over thousands of years, but they are not always logical. We tend to feel safer among other people, when other people are generally the greatest danger we face. The risk of attack from black bear or mountain lion is so low as to not even be worth taking seriously.

    Humans are a tribal/pack oriented species, for better or worse.

    Do you realize that it is going on daily in many places of the state of California? There are older mines that could be utilized and cleaned up as well. Gold covered with mercury is safely recovered every year as well as metals like lead sinkers and bullets. The environmental cleanup is taking place all the time...….Jetspray

    Well it is Bigfoot Country!

    Right conditions and a bunch of under brush. I have had piles of grass clippings start smoldering in the past on a hot day, and they were not that thick either...….Jetspray

    I had two of them approach my pickup a few years ago (truck and camper were brand new). When one asked me questions, the other guy motioned me to go ahead when he saw my 44 magnum next to my right hand but I did not have the finger on the trigger, just at the ready...…..Jetspray
