Over looked gear

Postby boltactionreducer » Thu Dec 20, 2012 8:26 pm

Game Calls
knowing how to and when to use certain game calls can and will increase your odds at bagging lunch. Sure you will stumble on to or vise versa some game from time to time but the ability to call in game can be a game changer . Just something to think about that you may have over looked

Agreed. Never really thought of them though.

game calls is a good call
i don't go anywhere without a headlamp. attaching it to a jug of water inside of a tent is a great way to disperse light evenly!!!
i have sewing kits with me at all times
knife
rope
extra tank of gas if i'm in my car
tank tops

always try and keep several feet of fishing line and a few hooks on you if possible
aside from the obvious, catching fish, it can be used to sew or stitch in an emergency

Although it sounds weird, no nothing "kinky". Military survival training includes condoms, because they can be used for carrying water, but take up VERY little space (can fit in a pcket/wallet. Also, troops in jungle areas would frequently use them to cover the barrels of their weapons to keep water from getting in and mucking up the works.

This thread is turning very bad very quickly. Can it be locked? Apparently some newer posters here are on the wrong forum.
THINK......It's not illegal yet.

No, there is NOT! THis is a family-oriented forum, so behave yourself, or you may find yourself OUT of here! If you make inappropriate posts, they WILL be sent to the "deleted posts" area. There is, however, a sub-forum for teens. I suggest you find it.

A condom can also be used as a tourniquet in a pinch, like a rubber band. Another item to keep in your medical kit is sanitary pads and kotex. Kotex are good for bloody nose, as well as the obvious use, and pads can be used in place of a sterile gauze pad to stop bleeding. In 2008, I hit my head really hard. I layed the scalp open, exposing the skull, while loading a Harley on to a trailer for a friend. My RN/GF came to the rescue with a maxipad, which I wore on the top of my head straight to the ER. They all thought it was hilarious. I did too actually. But at the time I was beyond care. It was the solution to a problem and it worked. At least until the 25 staples went in. They worked better.

You know I never really thought about pads and tampons like that so I am glad I read that. Condoms for water storage is a new idea for me too. I don't know about walking into a store and buying some though. I would be very embarrassed. Maybe I can send my brother to the store for me. I wonder if any health clinics give them out for free.
