What Should Every Prepared Hunter Carry For Outdoor Emergencies?

Whether you’re a seasoned hunter or just getting started, there is something in common: being outdoors. It doesn’t matter whether it’s rain boots and an umbrella for when the sun goes down; carrying some basic supplies with you will make any trip more enjoyable! So, What Should Every Prepared Hunter Carry For Outdoor Emergencies?

The types of accidents that can happen while hunting are many, but we will only cover common ones here.

What Are Outdoor Emergencies?

The first is an emergency with your gun or other equipment you may find yourself in during the course of a hunt – such as when it malfunctions and starts shooting by itself! This usually happens because someone didn’t properly clean their firearm before use (or at all).

If this sounds scary please know there’s nothing wrong beyond doing some DIY remedies; most times this issue stated simply needs new parts replaced so they work just like new again…

Various Types Of Outdoor Emergencies


If you’re a hunter, then it’s very possible that one day your gun might go off without any warning. You could get hit by debris caused by the shot itself or other hunters’ weapons and end up in need of medical attention!

Direct Impact

Unfortunately, getting hit by random debris can also cause a direct impact. This is because of the risk of gun mishandling or confrontation with another hunter and/or property owner who has accidentally shot at you instead of playing dead as they are supposed to do when someone else shoots first…

The worst-case scenario would be your own ammo going off while being handled undisturbed; this happens more often than one might think!


Though most outdoor emergencies don’t result in death, they can still be quite dangerous. One common type of emergency is the risk of drowning; this means that even if you’re not hunting with a buddy it’s never too late to take precautions!

Be sure your location isn’t banks or near bodies of water so as to avoid any accidents when stepping onto shore after trekking through unknown territory.

 Animal Attacks

People who hunt often find themselves at risk for several different types of accidents, including being attacked by animals. This is most likely to happen when a hunter approaches their kill, they think it’s dead but something goes wrong at the moment before death strikes again!

It also happens if an injured animal lashes out after its prey has been shot or trapped between two trees with no way out other than continued pain until finally mercifully passing away.

What Should Every Prepared Hunter Carry

Medicine Kit

Wounds can be a major problem for wilderness travelers, but it’s easily avoided with the right equipment. A wound cleaning solution and bandages are essential to any first-aid kit as well as pain killer prescriptions if you know how to inject them yourself!

Mentioning epinephrine or insulin would also come in handy because those injections should always happen immediately after an accident has occurred – never wait until someone else does that work while they’re already injured themselves.

Phone or a Two-Way Radio

When the rain starts to fall, it’s important that you take care of your electronics. Don’t let them get wet or damaged!

Place all devices in a Ziploc bag so they stay safe and sound during any stormy weather event.”

Power Bank

When you’re out in the field, there are a lot of factors that could lead your device to die. It’s even more problematic if it’s colder where you hunt because then not only will they run low on juice but also have no way to charge up at all!

So always make sure earlier and bring along an extra power bank just in case this happens while chasing game through deep snow or cold forests.


Whistles can be a huge help in emergency situations, not just because they make you easier to find but also for their ability as an additional sign. A rescuer may have trouble finding someone who speaks on the phone and has no idea where that person is located within an area or building; however, when whistled at it will often lead them right towards your location!

Fire Makers

The fire maker provides warmth and light in case you need to spend the night outdoors.

I think everyone has had that experience of getting stranded due to inclement weather, but what if your car breaks down?

You’ll be lucky if there’s even gas left for yourself after paying those bills! It can get pretty chilly out here on these mountain roads at night so having something between me (and all my holes) makes sure I’m not alone.

Meal-Replacement Bars

You have a chance to take care of yourself when you are out there. Food is the difference between life and death, so make sure that no matter what happens-you’re ready for it with some food in your stomach!

Water Purifying Items

You will need water, too! Have a personal filter with you in case the tap runs dry. It’s best not to drink anything else but bottled or boiled beverages while traveling through foreign countries where your own country doesn’t have control over things like pollution levels.

Waterproof Light Source

When it comes to the best flashlight for emergencies, there are plenty of options. Some people like having a powerful pocket-sized light with them at all times and others prefer carrying an entire bag worth! We recommend getting one that has some sort of hook so you can attach it onto your shirt or hat as both these spots will allow quick access when needed most

Knife or Multi-Tool

Having a knife is essential for any survival situation. Not only does it provide the user with tools but also protection in case of emergencies or attacks by wild animals

The best kind of blade? You decide! There are many options out there so find what works well based on your needs-

  • Bowie Knives,
  • HuntingBlade’s, etc…

Navigational Devices

We all know how important it is to be prepared for emergencies when hiking or backpacking. It can happen at any time so you should always carry with you some kind of emergency gear, like maps and compasses!

You also need food – even just enough energy bars will help keep your mind clear during a long day on the trail (or in town). And last but not least water- because who likes getting dehydrated?

These are not compulsory, but would make a great impact to your hunt!
