I also carry a small trauma kit on my person all the time - tourniquet, some gauze, tampons, gloves.
thats another one of those things I have stashed away pretty much everywhere...

Ive got a combo trauma/boo-boo kit in the medicine cabinet.. Ive got a full blown trauma bag under the sink in the master bedroom..

Ive got trauma/boo-boo combos in my hunting pack, my oh-shit kit bag, the glove box of my truck, the glove box of my wifes SUV, and a few additional ones in different places (desk drawer, on a shelf in my hunt camp, etc)..

plus a full blown boo-boo kit under the sink in the bathroom as well..

its impossible to have too much fire making capability or emergency medical capability on hand (and Im in no way, shape, or form any sort of "prepper"..)... people getting hurt, whether its a small cut or a bee sting, or something more serious like a laceration that needs stitches or a broken bone, is pretty much inevitable if youre going to spend any measurable amount of time outdoors..
 
If you plan to spend time in a tent, especially in colder climates, bring a "pee bottle" Nothing is such a drag as to have to leave the warm snugness of a sleeping bag in the middle of the night.

- Even if it is a dry climate, not a chance in the world of rain or other dampness, waterproof everything anyway.

- Try to bring tools that can function to more than one purpose. For example, a cup that you can also use as a cointainer to boil water. A knife with a serratet edge.

- If you can bring an axe / hatchet, saw and a knife. Great. If you have to choose only one, choose the knife.

- Never leave a smoldering campfire. Take proper precautions to prevent a wildfire.

- Use wool as the innermost article of clothing. Works great in warmer climates as well.

- Try to follow the KISS-principle. "Keep it simple, stupid." Don't overcomplicate things.

- Have a backup plan, think worst case scenario.

What will you do if you yourself or someone in your company breaks a leg, cut themselves severly with a knife, if someone gets burns from fire, what if aliens invade your campground. (Just joking with the last part.)

I enjoy camping on my own most of the time, far from the usual camping spots so I always bring tools and supplies in order to be pretty much self sufficient. (First aid supplies, GPS with Inreach capabilities, emergency shelter and so forth.)

Just my two cents. I am not at any rate an expert but these I have learned the hard way, by trial and error.

'Primitive' Atlatl.....
This "weapon" led to a real revolution in hunting techniques for large mammals such as horses

, mammoths Este, bison Este, etc.
Stunning zoomorphic decorations give these pieces double practical and symbolic value for certain hunter-gatherers.

A light 5- in- 1 camp tool....

ferro rod for fire!
With no 6--a whistle...
I meant the large object with a handle to the left of the ferro rod. It’s not numbered?

Surely that covers the blade. And has a carrying handle on top.
 
correct

Couldn't agree more. Most of my medical is trauma based, but I'm never very far from a kit in the the truck or house.

Spain, i booked through a consultant, i book almost everything through him now and he's done me right. his contact 724 986 7206 if interested and he will have more info to share,
I hunted elephant with Luke Samaris in 2005. It was my fourth safari and I tell you he is a fine gentleman the best. I got the opportunity to meet Patty Curtis, although never hunted with him but enjoyed our conversation around our tent in the Selous. Very sad for a tough guy to leave this world the way he did. Let’s pray the murderers are caught. I hope to see Luke in Nashville.
