Does anybody have good resources on woodsman medicine? I'm also wondering about replacements for antibiotics or a way to obtain bulk quantities of penicillin or another broad spectrum AB.

If you can find it affordably: Special Operations Forces Medical Handbook by Steven Yevich/D.O.D.

It is not feasible to stockpile antibiotics. They have a very limited shelf life/efficacy window and many require refrigeration or special preparation.

Having a stockpile now, for use in 18months(as an example) will do more harm than good.

Also, just taking antibiotic xyz for a situation when you THINK you need them can do more harm than good. Unless you have medical training you have no idea the difference between augmentin and rocefin, and when and if you should use either or both.

Better to try and find antibiotics when and if you need them, than to try and stockpile them and waste them.

Thanks, Chango. I was unaware about the shelf life. I'd obviously would have gotten a broad spectrum AB and been familiar with its proper use.
