We as hunters are generally careful and concerned about emergencies and the likelihood of injury. We research weather patterns, political environment, wildlife aggression, consider double or CRF rifles, caliber, etc. Or, at least we should. To be safe, we also buy emergency medical and security insurance. This should help get us into life saving care or safety as soon as can be expected. What I notice among many hunters is the disregard and lack of kit that can keep us alive until we can get to help or until additional services arrive. I urge you to get some gear that can address blood loss in particular. We carry guns, arrows, and knives. We go looking for animals that have big teeth and claws(or at least venture into their habitat). We travel by air, land, and water under unusual circumstances. These elements create a higher chance of injury with blood loss than many other sports and lifestyles. Blood loss is a leading cause of preventable death while on the way to or waiting for aid. Get some med gear(and get trained). It can save your life or the life of someone else. Keep a simple kit while hunting or at the range. If hunting in the water, I can still keep a tourniquet on my person or at least on my buoy. That can be carried by even the most streamlined minimalist hunter. There are other aspects that need to be covered as well. Please chime in with common injuries and illnesses as well as the appropriate kit or remedy. Be ready. There is inherent risk in what we love.
