Read this: Coyote attacks on humans - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia I think it is not their faults, the gun does not kill people, the person behind them does. In the same way coyotes can not be fully blamed for the attacks. Humans encroaching on their habitat, feeding them, intentionally or non intentionally. And usually its on children, not adults. I have no fear of coyotes, because I know that even to me, a 14 year old boy, they are virtually harmless. I remember that they are more afraid of me than I am of them. I just don't like the fact that he killed an animal because he was in its territory and it wanted to keep an eye on him, that's all.

I don't take toilet paper, because I am only in the field for a few hour(s) at a time. But it is definitely a great thing to have if you are going out for a longer while!

I wouldn't mind a gun or not, for me or the people I am with. Having one around is the only way to get shot though. Where I live there are bears. Seven years and haven't seen a single one. I've had one friend who told me about seeing a mountain lion, but they haven't been known from this area in 20 years. Personally the risks of being armed for me outweighs the chance of an attack. The only way I would run into pissed off mountain people would be by trespassing, which I never plan on doing.

Other than that, my essentials pack has changed quite a bit. I gained the preference to carry around a cooler, mainly for collecting mushrooms. It also holds everything else, pencils, notebook, headlamps, small maglight, lighter, pocket knife, ziploc bags, tons of wax paper, hand lens and a few trail elixirs to keep those mushrooms cool! I'm excited for next season to start with my new boots and converted camo soft tackle box. I'm planning to have an adventurous year.
