While reviewing some notes,this comes to mind.
One possibility which could explain the recent loss of three men is a large bee swarm,especially if they were well off trail.That is about the only thing that really makes me nervous out there and,depending on the time of year,I've always got my eyes and ears open.I had to make a quick downhill retreat to a creek bottom last April when a large swarm came down a draw towards my position.The sound was near deafening as they paused around a clump of mesquite above me,before moving off down the draw.That was the second such swarm that I have witnessed out there so far.

Take care out there:
Wayne

I worry about the Bees out there myself Wayne!

They are about the only living threat out there where my .44 Mag. is useless for protection. :mrgreen:

Best,

Jim

Bees worry me, especially when I'm on a steep slope.
