I'm usually within 3 or 4 miles of the truck, but I might be 25 miles from the nearest small town (if you want to call it that), and up until about 2 years ago, I might hunt alone as far as 200 miles from home (I'm not sure how smart that ever is). But I believe everyone should have some kind of first-aid stuff with them in the field, no matter how close they may be to the truck or home. There are just too many things that can go really wrong really fast when one is carrying guns, knives, arrows, and walking around in the dark, climbing trees, etc. Even sticking hands and arms into the insides of dead deer can result in a bad cut from a razor-sharp jagged-edged broken bone.
The kit I carry is 6 in. by 4 in. by 1 1/2 in. and probably weighs about 6 ounces. It's made by "Lifeline" and has just about anything you might ever need in an emergency situation. I think it costs about 7 bucks - damn cheap insurance, if you ask me.
