    Since we are in Archery Season:

    I don't know if this is OK to put on our SMF, or not, but I figured it could very well keep this from happening to one of my friends on this forum, so I'll give it a try.

    If it's a "NO-NO" to post it, then the Mods can delete it.

    Anyone who shoots a Bow knows how this could happen!!

    BE AWARE !!!

    I got this in an email. I guess the guy had to take the bow to the hospital! I would have said that I was keeping it!

    Didn't mean to upset anyone.

    I just know how easy this could happen if some Bozo gives you an arrow that is too short, and you don't watch where it comes to on the way to full draw.

    Maybe I'm a little numb from chainsaw carving, and seeing the accidents that come from that hobby.  [​IMG]

    I bet he is done with archery from now on!  

    No joke I actually had an arrow that was too short handed to me at an archery shop and luckily was able to tip everything away but still a butt puckering experience.  I was lucky enough to be strong enough and tall enough to work myself out of the situation.  I can easily see how someone not familiar with archery could have that happen.

    OH man I have seen a few email like this but never with the arrow going through the guys hand twice. I hurt just looking at this picture. I can't see how people do this but I guess if you had a short arrow it could fall off the rest and go all crazy and take out your hand.
  18. Wow, now that is one nasty splinter. Would take a big pair of pliers to pull that one out.

    That has to really hurt.

    Ugh!  I had a buddy who had a habit of floating his index finger awfully close to the arrow tip as he drew.  I could not get him to stop.  The target arrow tip cleared, but if he ever put a broadhead on it, he'd learn not to do it!
  20. Not a good look for bow men...I thin If Ok I'll use this pic as a safety lesson for the blog!
