|A well-stocked first aid kit is a handy thing to have on a fishing, hunting or camping trip.
Have you ever been in the middle of a great fishing or hunting trip and start to suffer a headache, sour stomach, or any annoying illness? It’s not enough to make you want to go home, but enough to make you uncomfortable. And, neither you nor your fishing or hunting buddy has anything for it.
To be more prepared, pack a resealable sandwich bag with aspirins, antacid tablets, bandages, and other first-aid items. Store the items in a tackle box, turkey vest, or hunting pack and they’ll always be there, unless you forgot your tackle box, vest or pack, and if you did, you were probably not feeling good before you left.
Other convenient items to store in a resealable bag might be a pack of gum, candy, matches or lighter, even toothpicks–anything that needs to be packed in a dry container.
Being prepared can be the difference between staying or leaving.
