I’ve always thought an axe handle might be handy:

I'm backpacking next weekend in eth NE panhandle. And I will not only carry, but it will be on my belt in the open. Times and places for CCW and for open carry, IMO, the wilderness, especially of a gun friendly state that I am a resident of, I will carry open and fuck the ugly stares. Of course this is western NE, I doubt, A)I see anyone, or B)they give 2 fucks

Well. It was bound to happen. Most of those outdoor like folks think they are at one with the earth and there's nothing there to harm them.

They forget about the ultimate predator.

I carried a mag of 5.56 as an RI and at a Wilderness School.

Mama 1RS didn't raise no fool.

Its Sad.

Smith and Wesson M&P 340 -- 12 ounces or so and if the bad guys are still coming after five rounds of .357 magnum from a 2"-ish barrel they are an Appalachian Trail hit squad and you are dead anyway.

Only when you hike with a partner but intend to come back alone.
ETA: Only when you are the person on the trail who gives other people a reason to carry more than a shovel.
