Did bring the CO2 detector?

Early this week I heard of 2 hunters that died in a fire.

They were at their hunting cabin when it caught fire.

Preliminary results was they died in the fire, but in truth

they had died from CO2 poisoning.  In other words they were dead before the fire started.

Many cabins and deer shakes  use some kind of a supplemental heating.

For under $20 you can buy a battery operated CO2 detector.

Be Smart.  Be safe!

Not matter your activity make sure you have one with you.

It will save your life!!!




You will have no chance when it gets like this!

That is both unfortunate and scary. So easy to not have this happen.

Yikes William- I'm thinking back on all of the years when Larry was on a deer lease. This is so sad.
