When you are facing down a long-term survival situation, it is almost inevitable that you will at some point experience or have to address a severe wound.
A survival situation is, by nature, dangerous and poses threats in many different ways – and that is if you are in a manageable situation.
In a SHTF moment or if you are lost in the wilderness, there are literally dozens of ways you can wound yourself or someone you are with can get wounded.
