I always carried when bow hunting.  In an emergency it was suggested that you shoot 3 times.  Nobody heard my arrows when I fell into a ravine, but they heard my pistol.

If it's wine  time for you, it's beer time for me. So let's tell lies. Or in this case, a truth you will think is a lie. About three decades ago I went shooting with a group of friends. Just plinking in the mountains. One friend was always putting other  people down, like he knew it all and was better than everyone. At one point we saw an aluminum can way up a canyon, so far you could barely tell it was a can. He grabs his S&W 44  Mag and says "I bet nobody here can hit that can with my 44." I had only shot a 44 Mag a few times at that point in my life but I accepted the challenge anyway. I told him not only will I hit that can on the first shot but  I will do it shooting one handed. Of course everyone called BS but I took the shot and YEP, hit that darn can first try, one handed. Was it luck? Absolutely. But... you miss 100% of the shots you don't take. And there WAS a little bit of skill involved. Was funny to see his astonished reaction. Wish I had bet  him money. LOL

I carry 100% of the time.
I have always carried a pistol while hunting. Depends on the environment, but I may carry a Ruger GP100 357 mag, or Glock 10mm.  I will carry in a Galco PLE or chest holster, again, depending on the environment.
Some will say your rifle when hunting is best and you dont need a pistol. If you have time to deploy and aim a rifle i might offer that the offending critter may not be a threat. Where i find the perceived need the highest is when field deessing an animal you have harvested.  You will put down your rifle, bow etc, and are heavily focused on dressing an animal. This is when you are most vulnerable.
I have also found having the sidearm useful when packing out meat. Much easier to make that 2nd trip without a bow or rifle. 
I find the chest rig very comfortable. Of course, it is easily accessed, which is a big part of the design.

Welcome from Pinal County.
We left Washington a few years back and have no regrets. :-)

I carry in the woods when hunting just as i carry in the streets when biking, running, walking, the only change is the gun and ammo.

Agreed.  For quite some time it seemed the best stuff came from the Verde Valley around Page Springs but the folks down south have made up a lot of ground in the last twenty years.  That big storm a few years back hurt them but vineyards are pretty resilient given proper care.  I always manage to stop in somewhere down that way when visiting relatives there.
