Last week I actually did some woods walking with family. We were in the big woods, along the Kaskaskia River watershed. And ya know what? I didn't have any gun at all; it was rather embarrassing. It was a spur of the moment thing, since the weather was unseasonably warm, and the kids were getting restless cooped up in grandpa's house, and I had just taken my usual gear out of my car to make room for Christmas presents. I did still have a 14" brush knife in the car, which came in handy to help the kids construct a fort out of sticks.

That corridor branches across a significant portion of the state, and all kinds of critters roam through it. I was not worried or anything, but a pistol on my hip (in a caliber more substantial than .22lr) might have provided additional comfort.
