Lost In The Woods
Don’t get lost in the spooky dark woods.Woods can be spooky you never know what's lurking behind the next tree, maybe a bear or a wolf.
Hunting season is starting here and every year there is usually someone who gets lost in the woods. It is so easy to get turned around and walking in circles. If you're lost call 911, get help.
Don’t feel like a fool this is the best thing to do before it gets too dark and cold. The woods here can kill you if you can’t get out. The temperatures drop down to freezing. Body temperature can drop very fast, hypothermia can set in. Don't forget your phone.
Kids Lost In The Woods.
When our kids and grandkids were little we always watched them make sure they didn't walk too far into the woods.
I often went into the woods picking princess pine. I always made sure I could see the road. I never went in very far I know me it wouldn't take long for me to get lost.
Our little niece went into the woods one time and couldn't find her way out; luckily family members were able to find her before it got dark, actually the dogs found her.
Children will often go into the woods get scared, lay down and will not answer when called. Their body temp drops even faster than a grown-up.
Dogs Lost In The Woods.
Our neighbor and a family member lost their dogs in the woods and never found them.
They were older dogs. They think they may have gotten weak and died in woods. Did they crawl off to die? They may have.
We looked under every log and every rock but no sign of either dog.
The dog in the picture never got lost he could track a deer and go way in the woods and find his way back. The deer hunters in the family really miss him. They didn't hunt with him but when they shot a deer and lost it he could find it for them.
Take A Compass In The Woods.
My husband was born here and knows the woods like he back of his hand, but he says it is still easy to get turned around. He always takes a compass into the woods. He knows how to read it which amazes me I just can’t figure the thing out. Learn how to read a compass first, before planning a trip in the woods.
Put me in the middle of the woods with a compass and I would stay lost, a compass is one of the big mysteries in my life! I can find my way around a city, which my husband can’t do, but the woods to me is another story.
Items You Should Take In The Woods.
Stay safe when you go into the woods.
In your backpack or big pockets take along these items.
tie a scarf around your neck just to take a long, use as a shawl to add more warmth or to wrap a wound which has been covered with gauze from your kit.
knife hooked on your belt
small packets of tissue, I would recommend putting tissue wherever you can stash it just so you don't have to use leaves or a roll of toilet paper in your backpack.
tie a jacket or sweater around your waist
small first aid kit
something to eat (keep any paper from your food it will help you get a fire started)
a light foil blanket (small enough and can go in your pocket)
Drop a black pepper container in your pocket to stop bleeding in case you get cut.
wear a bright color
carry a cheap whistle (Also good to give to a child who might be going into a maze or while camping.)
medication if you need it just in case
stocking cap if it's cold (Even in the summer it can get damp and cold)
always tell someone where you're going.
I know hunters have trouble carrying a backpack, but they can put many of these things in their big pockets in their hunting outfit. Items like flashlights are so small and strong now.
Cell phones may not work in the woods, but it is a good idea to take one with you, if it doesn't try texting sometimes this will work when a call won't work. You can get compass app and phones have GPS, but you have to know how to use both.
A personal locator beacon is not a bad idea to have it was suggested in a comment by Deborah-Diane.
2014 People Are Still Calling 911 When Lost In Maze
- What not to do in a corn maze - AOL.com
This time of year, going through your local corn maze can be a lot of fun. In the daylight, anyway, when you can clearly see where you're...
Lost In A Corn Field.
Even our granddaughters were telling us how they got lost in a corn maze and it was getting dark and they couldn't get out. Luckily they were smart enough (even for city slickers) to get the owners phone number so they could call him if they got lost. They never go anywhere without their cell phones attached to their hands.
The owner came to get them. He surprised them by jumping out at them and scared the heck out them. They thought it was so funny and so much fun. If you can get lost in a maze you can image what it would be like in the woods.
Little ones who live by corn fields get lost in cornfields just stop and think how easy this could happen.
Please stay safe in the corn mazes. My husband loves the woods, but he thinks corn fields are spooky. He's just thinking of Children Of The Corn!
I feel bad for the young family lost in the maze. They did the right thing by calling for help better to panic than to be unsafe. I'm sure they were worried about the children. It looks like a big maze to me. The maze on the right is the one they got lost in.
Christmas Tree Cutting in Woods
Many people each year get lost in the woods while going on their family trip to cut down a Christmas tree.
Going into the woods looking for a Christmas tree can be dangerous. A family in Colorado one year got lost in the woods while looking for the perfect tree. They had to call 911 to get them out.
While going on what you think is just a small trip to the woods looking for a Christmas tree be sure to take along things you may need, water, food, always have a lighter with you, cell phone, and warm clothes. When night comes even in warm climates it can get cold.
