It is important to have a hunting first aid kit checklist to ensure that hunters are prepared for any medical emergency that may occur while in the field. Having such a checklist is especially vital when hunting in remote areas and far away from medical help. A well-stocked first aid kit should include items such as bandages and wraps, antibiotic ointments and creams, antiseptics, hydrocortisone cream, pain relievers, burn ointment, sterile gauze pads and cotton balls, tweezers, scissors, safety pins.
