OUTDOORS ROUNDUP:

IF YOU HAVE ONE, YOU HAVE NONE.  When it comes to fire starting sources, blades or other simple but important tools, pack a spare.  When that butane lighter gives out, a set of strike anywhere matches are good to have stashed away. The adage works on everything from survival gear to shotguns.

MAN WITHOUT A KNIFE, MAN WITHOUT A LIFE.  In the field, whether hunting or fishing, having a knife on hand makes quick work of cutting projects.  Make sure the blade is sharp and ready to go and secured in a sheath on your hip or in a storage box so you’ve got it when you need it whether the need is dire or just to cut some line.

THINK TWICE, SHOOT ONCE.  A derivation of the old carpenter’s motto, knowing your target and what lies in front of, around and beyond it requires thought – and a second thought – to make sure all is safe.  A bullet can’t be brought back, so take a second look before clicking that safety off and pulling the trigger.
