For what it's worth, there are only a handful of us left who hunt on Derra and most of the people I find there are not aware that Infantry Command is implemented for Derra.
I would say that in the 15 months I have hunted on Derra that I have never been attacked whilst out hunting, (other than when we were fighting the GE, who have long since fled), but sadly that record was broken the other day by someone who was under the misapprehension that they could only use one squad.
Unfortunately for them they had not seen that my other six squads were deployed when they attacked me!
So in short, don't be afraid to come to Derra as we are generally a nice bunch and I'm pretty much the only person using multiple squads there, most of the time.
I am confident that you will find that using multiple squads brings a whole new perspective to hunting.
