Looks well organized. Everyone's set of gear probably varies based on personal experience and needs. For example, I carry a .45 auto on my belt when hunting here in Northern Arizona. Around here, we get a lot of two legged visitors heading north from across the border, and for the second time in four months, I spotted cougar tracks around the same water hole. I'm out there armed with an airgun. From a distance, the two legged visitors wouldn't know the rifle isn't a powder burner, but the four legged critter could care less.A cougar was spotted last week about a half mile from our house. I hunt alone, so I also carry a GPS locator. Not the kind that tells me where I am, but the kind that transmits my location back to my wife's computer here in Arizona, and also to our son's computer in California. Better safe than sorry. My kit varies a bit by season also. It's good to be prepared.

My wife just told me there was a mountaion lion incident involving two people in Cleveland Nat'l Forest yesterday...It happened near Lake Elsinore,Ca...--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Mountain lion mauls dog that defended ownersThe Associated Press 10:24 p.m. May 5, 2009LAKE ELSINORE, Calif. — A mountain lion attacked and nearly killed a dog that defended its owners Tuesday on a trail in the Santa Ana Mountains. The dog was severely mauled in the stomach area and rushed to a veterinary hospital for surgery, said Orange County sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino. The 5-year-old black labrador mix named Hoagie underwent a four-hour operation and was expected to survive, he said. William Morse told KABC-TV that he was hiking with his wife near a campground in the Cleveland National Forest, about 10 miles from Lake Elsinore, when a 120-pound mountain lion approached. "Out of nowhere, a mountain lion just charged us, attacked us. And my dog saved our lives," Morse said. He said the attack lasted less than 10 seconds and left the dog with deep wounds. But, Amormino said, the dog put up a "vicious fight. I'm sure that lion was hurt, too." Morse said he was traumatized by the attack and will never return to the campground where he and his wife have been hiking for years. Sheriff's deputies and Forest Service officials have not located the mountain lion, which will be destroyed if located, officials said. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------I carry pepper spray and keep my day pack on to protect my neck....most often these cats will stalk you from behind....
