Sanitary feminine napkins carried in your hunting pack serve a multitude of uses. First and foremost they make perhaps one of the most effective compresses to stop and control bleeding in a first-aid situation. The absorbent qualities, coupled with their sterile nature, and the fact that they are many times individually packaged, makes them a natural choice to carry afield in a first-aid kit. They are light weight and inexpensive, so multiples may be placed into the pack. In addition, they are useful for mopping out the inside abdominal cavity of a game animal in the field, both to remove excess blood and in the event of a gut-shot animal or ruptured paunch.
