Im the minority... I chose illness / medical. Heart attacks, bee stings, hypothermia, diabetic emergencies, Heat stroke, etc... I feel are our worst enemy and most likely to actually kill us in the wilderness.

As you can see from my post above, I agree with Dan. Gotta quit trying to do three things at once. :)

Bridge,

You hit on an often overlooked point there - being physically in-shape when it comes to getting to and from a stand or dragging a buck out of the woods. I encourage everyone to start now by walking in the evenings and or exercising on a regular basis. It could save your life!

I agree wholeheartedly with a few of the others responses: Bad judgement and hypothermia are the biggest killers in most wilderness areas of North America.

I voted injury as well. More hunters end up in the ER every year from knife wounds while field dressing game than any other reason. Be careful out there everyone.
