Shooting first aid

Dr Matthew Ricks

A first aid kit is essential and I believe that anyone involved in shooting should carry a small kit with them.

The gamekeeper or shoot captain should also know exactly where potential access points on the shoot are available for ambulances and they both should be trained in basic first aid.

The safety record in the shooting field in the UK is excellent, but nevertheless accidents can happen and, where shotguns are employed, they can be of a serious nature.
