Walking and hiking sticks


 Have you ever asked why hikers carry walking sticks ?


 They use walking sticks for variety of reasons: For an assist on hills and stability on difficult terrain. For protection, hikers carry them while walking in the wilderness because they are excellent detterents to loose and attacking dogs. Usually when dogs see the stick they back off. One more important thing about sticks, we can build stretchers with them for emergency first aid to carry sick or injured hikers.

-A simple stretcher can be built with 2 sticks plus 5 or 6 trouser belts.
