Stupid accident
« on: September 15, 2007, 12:01:47 am »
 I was touching up my hunting arrows and getting packed to leave for the mountains tonight and hunt the weekend. I guess it was sharp as I cut my index finger pad to the bone. Hpoe I can shoot tomorrow. I learned my leason, always wear gloves when sharpening.   Kenneth

Sorry to hear that. Is it your string hand?  When I got in my tree stand last weekend I was brushing the loose scaly bark off of the pine I was in and it sliced my bird finger where the string goes across it. I had a blood trail before I ever saw a deer. ;D
  Hope it heals soon. Don't be pulling a Pat on yourself! ;)      Pat

Yes drawing hand and right where the string lays. Definatly a blood trail.   I about cut my thumb off when I was a kid, doing the same thing. I guess I thought I was more talented now days.  Kenneth

Lj, if something can go wrong, it will. I remember telling myself over and over before hunting trips, "Don't do anything stupid". Didn't always work but what the heck. Use a lot of CA and butterfly bandaids and a good string wrap around the wound. Good luck.

I need to get the guards back on that table saw ;D, nope have been lucky - no blood trails from me lately.
When you come upon a track or trail you do not know, follow it to the point of knowing.

   A clever fella I knew years ago was wiping the blood of his arrow after removing it from a kill and ran the palm of his hand over the still razor sharp broadhead . Another clever bloke just finished sharpening his broad heads for an upcoming hunt walking out to put the arrows away bumped them on a door jam and drove one into his groin , severed his femoral artery . A visitng mate held the damage artery until the ambulance arrived . Scary things sharp arrows - regards Perry

I've come close to cutting myself on the broadhead end of a broken arrow when field-dressing a deer. Something everyone should be careful about... ;)

 I super glued it then bandaged and the bandage even fit into my shooting glove, suprisengly I even shot well with little pain, only took a couple of shots to know I could do it, they flew true so good enough. I had one near miss last winter by falling down with a broadhead arrow on the string, I felt it touch my neck, now I dont stalk or still hunt with an arrow on the string, till it is time. Be careful ever one.   Kenneth
