Our very good friend, Mike Ward, KG6WSL, will be our guest this week. The net will cover a topic that many hikers, fishermen, and outdoor adventurers. may face - protection against dangerous animals. The type of dangers you may face will depend somewhat on your area, but regardless of the locale, many dangers exist, including bears, mountain lions, coyotes, wild boar, wolves, and others. While the dangers are often found in less populated rural areas, many of these animals have adapted to civilization and are found in or very near large cities. The risks are real.

Knowing your area and the types of animals you may encounter will play a part in your defensive choices, but there are many other considerations as well.
