Stop the bleeding now!

OK... gentlemen I have a question for all of you. Now be honest in your response.

How many of you that hunt rifle or archery carry a "tourniquet" that you can self apply and/or "quick clot" in one form or another?

Not talking about a small first aid kit... taking about those items.

The rest of the question; And don't just take it into the field when your hunting, but anytime your on the range and/or in the field with you?

Personally; I don't make a move with my firearms/hunting of any type, or travel without them on me, or near me.

Let see what you say.

No, not unless you count a belt or bootlaces. I usually have a long piece of rope chord with me that might work if needed.?

Tell me about "quick clot" Is like the stuff we use on livestock at brandings to stop bleeding? Powder that goes on the wound.

Well? sure I guess you could use about anything, if your pants don't fall down or your boot comes off while you trying to move for medical help.

I was thinking of something a little dedicated as a tourniquet. Blood clot... yes it's kinda like it, it can be in many forms, powder, gauze, liquid and so on.
Here'...., this will give you some help with your question.. ZMedica - QuikClot® adsorbent hemostatic agent speeds coagulation & rapidly stops blood loss: Z-Medica Corporation

OH, wait just a minute! Hold the horses.

I do usually have a tourniquet!!

I usually pack a snake bite kit and it's got one. Not a surgical rubber one, but it's there nonetheless.

Unfortunately I don't carry it in the winter since no snakes are out then.

Re: Stop the bleeding now!

Nope, just one more piece of marketing for either the paranoid, or hemophiliac, or perhaps our current or former military members who just don't like venturing off without a piece of equipment that has been engrained as a "nesicity" in their line of work.
I guess if the Deer, Elk, or cows were shooting back at me I'd have a different view.
I grew up chasin cows. Leaving for 1-3 days at a time on a horse. Prepared meant making sure you had your bedroll wrapped up in your slicker, & had some coffee in your saddle bags.
I hunt the same country I always have, & the country I grew up & played in.
My day pack weighs ounces not pounds. (Unless I'm carying water). See the pic in my signature, & youll see why i count ounces, & absolute BARE nesicesities. Tried the whole "paranoid boyscout day pack", prepared for anything at all times, & just got sick & tired of packing useless weight around for nothing. Actually, the only use I ever got out of it was that an over stuffed pack makes a nicer shooting rest. But I have bi pods for that.
Not trying to be gruff, nor knock your personal approach to your personal hunting style. We apparently just have radically different ideas of preparedness I guess. I'm used to doctoring myself with whatever I can come up with. We've experienced everything from DIY stitches, resetting broken bones, dealing with concussions, & severe sprains etc. & even getting people with heartattack/disecting Aorta to an ambulance & life flight. Always been able to react pretty easily to whatever was thrown our way using only our heads, & what we had with us, weather working or playing. Never once had any need for a tourniquet.
