That is about it, and maybe some super glue for those bigger bleeders that may occur!!!

I agree with 1 pointer, bandaids are too flimsy for anything real.

When bivy hunting I take a roll of athletic tape too. Its to tape up the knees for the heavy meat loads out.

trophy_killer:

For big wounds you should include either a couple military field dressings or a couple of Kotex pads. Take a couple of Ace bandages for sprains and/or to hold the Kotex pads in place on top of the wound.

1_pointer is right that duct tape will work for a blister. But I still prefer Mole Skin.

Chap Stick, Aspirin.

I also take several Bandaids. Maybe I'm a whimp but I always seem to get little cuts specially on my hands.
