Band-Aids and Electrical tape will hold ANYTHING together

It's probably a good idea to carry a first aid kit, and I usually have a few things with me, when I'm going to be back into the woods quiet a ways. When hunting around the house, I usually don't even carry a pack. I can put everything I need in my pockets and take off

I have a pack that I bring with me, Its for my un-necessaries I guess....
I keep a snake bite kit, some band aids, a pair of rubber gloves and a can of that spray saline you can get at Wally world in it.
That spray saline junk can clean out any cut likety split and a band aid on top will keep ya hunting....
For the deeper cuts I use papertowel and electrical tape

If you get hurt call me and I will put you out of your misery. Of course there is no wound big enough that you couldn't plug it one of those enourmosly fat fingers.

Bandaids, a few individually wrapped 4X4 gauze dressings, tape, little packets of triple antibiotic ointment (neosporin), pair of tweezers, a few alcohol wipes, whistle.Some other helpful things: Aspirin (experience chest pain hauling a deer carcass out of the woods-pop a couple and call 911.), epi pen for those with severe allergic reactionsto insect bites/stings. Perhaps a few otc tabs for headache and a decongestant of your choice.

I don't carry a first aid kit. I don't think I ever will. I always carrya lighter so I figure I can survive until I'm rescued. If I get hurt real bad I don't think a kit would make any difference. If I die hunting it would be the way I would want to go anyway

I do have a good first aid kit in camp.

Electrical tape?!!? C'mon, guys! Join the ranks of professional rednecks and replace that garbage with camo duct tape.

A few bandaids, a couple of sterile pads, roll of camo duct tape (for real. It's not just for first aid) tube of antibiotic ointment and a cell phone that I keep turned OFF unless I was in a fix where I really need help.
