I always carry some sort of first aid. Been in a few situations where a bandage and tape have come in handy. (Not that I would ever get injured but my for my friends of course!) I also carry some fire starters and some sort of food and water for survival even though it is pretty hard to get lost on the vast plains of eastern and central ND! :toofunny:

I never carried a first-aid kit until a couple of seasons ago. I was out hunting by myself and was trying to build a makeshift blind out of some small willow trees. When cutting the smaller branches off with a Browning handsaw I cut my thumb down to the bone. I had no bandages or anything like that so I had to sit in the boat and hold my finger together for 4 hours while watching ducks bomb into my decoys on the back side of the island before a buddy called. I had him come out and bring some bandages to hold my finger together. Every since then I've carried an Eddie Bauer first-aid kit in the boat.

I carry one for my dog but not for me :toofunny: . I suppose half the stuff in there I could use on myself if I needed to.
