    All of the gear I carry is essentially for ease of living in a long term wilderness survival situation, so probably nothing is essential except perhaps personal medication & a good medical kit. However, I wear my belt pouch at all times when out bush, & it contains a brass sundial compass, my fishing tackle, & my fire bag with flint, steel & tinderbox.

    it is a good idea for all ESSENTIAL kit to be on a belt pouch, that way if you have to drop your backpack and run away, say from an animal attack or maybe a human attack, you haven't lost everything.

    not that we have bear's in the UK, but I thought the idea was to throw your pack at the bear and make your escape whilst its busy investigating your pack.

    Some people have managed to distract an attacking bear by shedding their backpack. The bear has stopped long enough to shred the pack to allow the person to get away. No bears in Australia though, but it might work on a wild boar :)

    biggest wild animal in the UK is a Red Deer, most dangerous would be a Wild Boar or a Mink.

    A shame when you think of bear, wolves & beaver inhabited the UK. All gone now. My wife saw a Roe deer not far from our place last week. I hope we get to see more of them. We have though cornered the market on Roos, wallabies & walleroos in our forest as well as a large range of bird species. Love to hear the bird chorus every morning.
    Never did see a wild boar in all the time I lived in the UK, seen plenty here though!!!
    Regards, Keith.

    their are some beaver on the River Otter in East Devon Keith, been there several years now, well established.
    plenty of Deer around here, Badgers and Pheasants, Squirrel and Rabbits, plenty of Wild Boar-escaped from farms, now all over North Devon from Exmoor all the way down to the outskirts of Plymouth.

    Interesting, I did hear some years ago that beaver were to be introduced back into the English countryside, seems as though it was a success. Very good news. I think of all the wildlife I miss in the UK, it has to be the wood pigeon that I miss most.
