Hunting alone can be a little daunting, but also really rewarding. After years of hunting with a great pard, the last couple of years I have been mostly by myself too. My lifelong friend and fellow hunter's wife passed away and he moved back to California to be closer to his son. My son owns his own trucking company and is on the road all the time. My wife gets worried as I am 70 and she is concerned I'll have a problem. I bought a SPOT and got it all set up and she now seems satisfied. Whoever thought about this SPOT thingy really hit it dead on.
