Ok, guys, we've all known somebody -- the guy who fancies himself a mighty hunter, but who you just know is going to become a statistic someday.
I just ran into one -- the guy who thinks he knows everything about hunting, but who was positively scary in the woods -- one trip out, and it became obvious that the guy's headed for disaster because he's risking hypothermia by wearing cotton clothes and no raingear in boggy terrain on a cold, rainy day, and charging through dense cover in grizzly country at high speed without paying attention to his surroundings and no bear protection. Then he starts talking about using a .45 for bear protection because he's so good at quick draws and can shoot beach balls at 300 yards. Good luck with that when you jump a sow with cubs at 5 yards, buddy.
In Alaska, if you don't respect the wilderness, it'll kill you -- and this guy's headed for disaster.
Prior to this guy, the worst I'd seen was a guy that joined our deer hunting party when I was growing up an wore a white hat in the woods because he didn't have orange.
Anyone else? Who's the scariest guy you ever went in the woods with?
