    Relic Hunting

    Re: What do you put in your gear pack for contingencies while relic hunting?

    An extra digging tool...how many of you have been out deep in the woods and broke your shovel?

    A map or GPS. Record those hotspots in your GPS.

    Watch: long summer days can be REALLY long when your digging and its hot. Don't forget to get out of there in time before dark if you are somewhere you are not familiar with! Yes...it has happened to me.

    Hello All,
    Lots of good suggestions, I will add just one.
    Occasionally I go into the woods. Picked up Poison Ivy for the first time about a month ago. From now on I will have some Clorox wipes or make my own in a baggie. If it helps a little it's worth it!!

    It's dangerous to be right when those with a thimbleful of perceived authority are wrong.

    I carry most of the things mentioned but I also carry a whistle, just in case I get injured or lost. It'll help someone find me.

    One thing I haven't seen mentioned is a sharp Machette. I carry it in the woods. I use a Messenger bag instead of a backpack so things are in easy reach. It also doubles as a knee rest when digging.
    A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." -Douglas Adams

    If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family Anatidae on our hands.

    I always keep a plug of chewing tobacco(for wasp or insect stings;gives instant relief after a chaw & poltice application).
    A "Contact" capsule (anti-hystamine)is also good for a wasp sting.
    Water is a must have.
    Always let someone know where you are headed in case you become missing.
    I always pack "heat"too(for a variety of reasons)

    Believe it or not, a cotton swab saturated with Clorox bleach also works well for wasp and yellow jacket stings, just dab it on the sting. Many years ago I was cutting grass and ran a push mower over a yellow jacket's nest and them sum-britches ate me up. I ended up with 18 yellow jacket stings and two wasp stings. I used the Clorox and the stings never really hurt and I didn't have any swelling.

    Bug spray and lots of water. Not just drinking water, but washing water. I do a lot of beach hunting, so when I get back to the truck, I am full of sand and salt, so I bring lots of water to wash with. It makes for a more enjoyable trip back home. I wait to get home, before checking my finds, unless I think I have something really great, so dont need water for that. Will invest soon in a camelbak, on long water hunts. Water everywhere, but nothing to drink!
