I used to camp solo in the Daniel Boone National forest in central and eastern Kentucky and I always carried a 12 gauge noisemaker. I heard all sort of critters roaming through the woods late at night. I did nothing noise wise till something touched the tent walls which never happened. I'm sure they smelled me long before I heard them, we humans aren't the best smelling bunch in the woods. To them we were probably those dang skunks again.

During my last outing I brought an aluminum baseball bat. I had just bought a new carbon fiber tripod and didn't want to have use that as a weapon, if need be. :lol: Anytime I heard screeching in the forest I yelled back and whistled, but that damned owl just wouldn't shut up!

I also prefer to be lonely. Dont know why, but it seems the best shots are taken when i'm alone, focused on the job, the hardware, the sky, etc. There have been times when i'm with a friend or to, which is nice and all, but too much talking and less photos, nice phots.
