Thanks for the reminder Vickie. I put the kit in the blind bag for the hunts I've been on already w/ out re stocking it from last season. Dumb.

And one of the best tips for early season is vapor rub cheap wally world brand is fine. rub it all over the dog keeps the skeeters off them really well And it works for us too rub on the backs of your hands and around your neck keeps them off ya. and dont wash off easy when the dogs retreiving.

Super glue. I carry the stuff in every medical bag that I have. It was invented to quickly seal wounds in WWI. I have used it to stop a sliced paw from bleeding and as a bandage replacement for an amputated finger.

A multitool is a greatly needed asset in some situations. When waterfowling or upland hunting it is part of my standard gear. Just my opinion.

Small packets of honey. Sometimes you can get a dog running hard enough that they can drop their blood sugar. Keeping this in your vest can be a life saver.

Lately I`'ve been taking my dog absolutely everywhere with me. And it got me thinking what would I do if something happened to him. What's everyone's opinion on dog first aid kits? Buy one or make your own?
