I recently refinished my turkey gun which was my grandpa's old Stevens model 94H. The stock is mounted to the breech/barrel via a really long screw. The stock has a pretty big/long hole where the screw is inserted and watching all these survival shows I figured why not put some survival items in this hidden compartment under the butt plate. I managed to cram a decent amount of helpful items in this small volume which includes:
-hooks,line,sinkers
-matches and striker
-3-500mg aspirin
-2 benadryl
-cotton squares for fire starting/bleeding
-4 small safety pins and rubberbands
-a small plastic bag to carry H2O
all this is in another plastic bag. The hole is only 3/4"dia. and maybe 5-6" long and contents could be varied but if the emergency ever arises(which I hope it doesn't) I will have a few things to help in a survival situation.

Good idea to and extent...........I guess the key word is "emergency". I personally can see two things in the pics that could be potential issues.

Medication, even aspirin or tylenol can and will draw moisture and get/go bad.

Secondly, I would refrain from stacking my matches striker tip to tip, the recoil could cause them to move/rub and the next thing ya know, your shotgun is a torch.

And as mentioned above, screwdriver/tool to remove recoil pad.

Personally, if I am in an emergency situation, the last thing I want to have to do is take apart my gun, besides if you don't have enough space or a pocket to put the kit into........you are carrying to much stuff to begin with or you need a pocket.
