Good post Siskiyou,
What I usually do is to tell my wife a location (or section) that I am going to be at and if I do not make a timely return, she can call friends of ours to be sent out.

Makes better sense for me to have the Cell and the Gps on me at all times...This can be frequent with the Fox\Coyote hunting.

My earlier post referred to having a gps. The victim was where some people had cellphone service. Cellphone service is tricky in some areas. I had family living on the South slope of a mountain and they had no AT&T phone cellphone service at their house. My Verizon cell would work at their home. A couple miles up the mountain and I had service. If you have a cell phone or portable radio communication along with a gps you can pass along your latitude and longitude which rescuers can program in CAD systems (computer aided dispatch), search aircraft gps units, and ground searchers can create a waypoint(point of interest) and using the go to function located you. I also carry a signal mirror in my daypack.
