Outdoor Hiking – Wilderness Hiking

October 23rd, 2011 by ironcooker

A wilderness hunting trip

Years add a lot to a person’s life as far as knowledge when it comes to being outdoors there is no replacement for experience.

Being scared, panicked, fear stricken is something that is hard
to overcome no matter where or what situation you are in.

Be prepared for the worst things to happen, have an open mind & trust your instincts.

Get outside to enjoy a great wilderness hiking experience !

It is the 1st week of October,. It is a time all of us avid hunters dream about all year long.

This year was going to be different.  We had made a plan to travel to an old hunting camp we know that is out of reach for most hunters. As we loaded our gear in my old truck our conversations were little. We knew the situation that was ahead.
After driving for 4 hours we stopped for lunch at a little restaurant we all agreed that would be our last meal inside with other people until our trip home.

Later that afternoon we called in our location to one of our friends at home before heading into this wilderness area.
God bless this modern technology, GPS>Cell phone, exc.

Our hiking trip would have been a great idea; we had great friends, good food, a great location, with lots of reasons for this to be a wonderful trip.

We set up a base camp after our two day hike; this was going to be great.wilderness hiking camp

John shot an 8 point on his first trip out and became our first camp cook. That afternoon things took a swing  from good to bad. It was getting dark & we had heard no word from our other partner Ed.  He had a cell phone & we all had mapped out locations on our gps.

Ed had shot a doe & was on his way down his tree stand when a pack of coyotes came in to see if he would make a good lunch to go along with the deer he shot. On his way back up he stuck an arrow in his leg & dropped his cell phone

We always leave one person at base camp but we was down to two of us now & it was dark. I had Eds phone on my Gps so we went out after him.  Not knowing how bad or what situation we were heading into. We packed out 12 gage along with us into this wilderness while looking for our friend.

I fired two shots into darkness when yipping animals came at us. This sound scared them off.  Thank goodness because John & I were about done being brave, we were running on pure survival at this point.

I yelled ED. ED. Where are you!!

Can you be any louder he said, I’m up here.

Shook up from this situation & a good gash in his leg that we washed out & sewed up with our makeshift kit we have.  I learned from an old fishing trip that sometimes you have to do this kind of thing.

Ed didn’t want to go home so we watched that sore on his leg close & called in to home to let them know our situation every day.  Coyotes got that doe but Ed shot a great 6 point three days later.  My hat is off to this man, what a sportsman he is.

I hope every one of you experience a great wilderness hiking experience.  Pitching your tent in your back yard or taking a three day trip through forest covered land. It is just  your relationship with nature that matters.
