The Texas Parks & Wildlife Department, Kentucky Department of Fish & Wildlife and South Carolina DNR all carry our Tac Med Solutions (TMS) kits. Why? Because they know that if you’re alone in the woods and something bad happens, you’d better be prepared with the best life saving tools available.
Thanks to Michael Maher from longrangehunting.com for putting this write up on our Olaes Bandage in his article “Medical Considerations in the Back Country.”
“A roll of 4 inch wide gauze is very handy to wrap wounds and comes in a very small package. It is usually easier to use than its smaller 2-inch counterpart. This is a pressure dressing to wrap around your initial 4X4 bandage and hold it in place. When teaching self aid/buddy aid courses to law enforcement, we also teach keeping a roll of gauze in the driver door pocket of their cruiser to stuff in wounds if the need ever arose. Another option for the roll gauze is some of the newer bandages that are available from companies like Tac Med Solutions. They offer bandages such as the Olaes bandage that are packaged in vacuum packaging. This allows the hunter to save space in his kit. The Olaes bandage is the same bandage that the Armed Forces carry in their IFAK (Individual First Aid Kit).”
SHOT Show is the largest and most comprehensive trade show for all professionals involved with the shooting sports, hunting, and law enforcement industries. TMS Outdoors had a great week! We got the green light from both Realtree and Mossy Oak, have almost 50 retailers wanting to carry our products, and were invited on a few hunts too. Thanks to everyone that stopped by!
Tactical First Aid for the Hunter – “What goes in your kit?”
Part 1: Tourniquets
Take a look at this article. It discusses our SOFT-T Wide and SOFT-T NH tourniquets and emphasizes how a tourniquet is a crucial part of any hunting medical kit. The SOFT-T Wide comes standard with each of our TMS Outdoors trauma kits!
Thanks to Rhody over at We Like Shooting for this product review of our Operator IFAK. Our TMS Outdoors H-IFAK is modeled after this kit. Notice how he mentions that he also takes it hunting with him!
