Awesome, got my daughter out turkey hunting one year when she was 15. First morning right after sun up, I had three gobblers in front of her right in a row. She missed, lol. Still loved those 2 sat mornings.

My daughter has been hunting with me for a few years now. When she passed her test I made her wait a year be cause she barely passed the test and she sat through 5 classes while I was teaching. Now she wants to come help at my classes. I got her an Ithaca 49s when she passed and now she has her Mossberg for birds and I reconfigured my Rossi Singleshot .270 so that she can shoot at deer this year.

Great idea on the gift, I got my girl a new survival kit for her pack this year.

Don't forget toilot paper roll. Females use these more than males. Then she can burn the tp when she is finished. A small hand spade is good too for bigger jobs.

Nail clippers for when she breaks a nail too.

I do not know what good a finger saw is going to be.

Hey we tell all our students in Survival training to carry a Kotex and a tampon if they get a bad cut works good for a bandage.

Help me out here. I'm trying to figure out how you would use a tampon as a bandage.

Theyre prefect, actually. I carry one in my first aid kit, together with a a self-adhesive wrapping bandage such as for an ankle sprain.

You put the tampon over the wound, then you apply direct pressure for awhile to assist with clotting. Then you secure the tampon in place with the wrapping bandage.

G/I gunshot bandages are nothing more than a square tampon with a wrapping bandage attached to it anyway. So you can make your own out of Kotex and self-adhesive wraps from the drug stores.

About a dozen hunters get shot in California every year. So that's 12 out of 200,000. Best to be prepared.
