Med kit

Postby Virginian » Thu Nov 01, 2012 10:17 pm

I'm an avid hunter and I take my FJ into the bowels of VA. If there was ever an emergency, it would be tough to get an EMT back to where I'm at. Your first line of defense should be good communication, i.e. cell phone + cell service, buddy system, etc. Sometimes I'm in areas that are tough to get to and accidents do happen.

I ordered two items that should give me a good start to a med kit.
- Adventure Medical Kits - Whitetail
- Celox

The Whitetail's med kit is more tailored for what my needs are and The Celox with the applicator would stop the bleeding in case of a gunshot wound or major artery bleeding till help could get there.

Both of there items can be had off of Amazon at a great reduction in price.

A gentle reminder to be responsible when we are all out in the middle of no-where that these kits may make a difference in someone's life at a critical time.

Great post Eric. Thats something we seldom think about and hope that it doesn't happen but everyone should be prepared in case something terrible does. I ended up having to use a suture kit one time when I forgot and left my razor sharp knife inside the chest cavity of a moose. After all the organs were removed I reached up inside and started sweeping with my hands all the blood and remains out and sure enough found my knife the hard way. That was something I certainly didn't want to do but at the same time I was glad I had a good first aid kit along. It was a nasty cut and no other way to close it. Afyter that I carry a kit in all my packs even if it's just an afternoon squirrel hunt a few miles from home. Again great post!
