A lot of hunters, today prefer to go hunting along un the woods, but is it safe to challenge nature all by youself?
Despite the danger of animal attack, you can run on unequal hunters or just random trespassers.
Today, with different appliances like GPS and cell phones tracking systems, chances to get lost reduced significantly, all you need is just to make an emergency call and in 10 minutes the help will be on the way and in another 10 minutes you’ll see a helicopter over your head. There are always exceptions, but you can never foresee everything in your life. You never know….
Lee Van Luvender (22) left his home at 7 a.m. to go hunting and was found shortly after 10 a.m., lying dead outside his Jeep in a parking area off Hypsie Gap Road by another hunter. Upper Tunkhannock Creek. Van Luvender was wearing hunting clothes, carrying a hunting license and had been shot multiple times as reported by local police
After all the question of hunting along question highly rouse in local hunting communities.
If you are injured and unable to contact someone, a companion can always provide you with first help and get some help. But you need fully trust you companion. Hunting used to be more social kind of sport and you could see a loot of groups or families reserving this or that spot to settle for hunting weekend out. But lately most of people can take just on or two days to get off the city and some times it’s doesn’t match friend’s schedules, lack of hunting societies , etc… all that very important factors push hunter to go along.
May be that made hunting on private property is preferable. Because when you are dealing with public land, there are always a lot of problems with who shot what. In cases when one hunter wounded retreating deer and finished by another hunter, then both hunters claim to the kill… And some guys filled with after hunting excitement and adrenaline rushes are hardly could be controlled…
The question is to go or not to go along….
