So that's a trip I soon won't forget. So that I don't feel like a complete dickhead has anyone ever had a accident or hurt themselves while out hunting or failing that had a close call? Hope no one was seriously hurt.
I think most hunters have had some kind of mishap if they have hunted very long.
The trick is to have a plan and be prepared for anything.
The one that sticks out in my mind that happened to me was - While bow hunting squirrels
with my 10 year old son I knocked one out of the tree that wasn't quite dead.
My son was eager to help with the retrieval and was on him like a duck on a June bug.
I tried to stop him from picking the squirrel up but was to slow. fortunately he picked up the
arrow with the Pissed off squirrel still on it.
Now the squirrel was working his way up the arrow intent on biting my son, so I did the only
thing I could think of to keep the squirrel from biting him, I grabbed the squirrel who in a previous
life must have worked for the subway in New York because he realy punched my ticket
After a series of rabies shots I learned not to touch any wild game unless you know it is dead.
Just one of many "Incidents"
