Um..."buckshot" as in a general term for shot. I'm sure they were using dove loads. (I forget that people here hunt deer with "buckshot", so I should have used the term "dove shot" )
LOL, that makes more sense.

twisted my knee one year pretty good... Kept me out of the woods for a couple of weeks. Nothing too serious though.

In my second season of whitetail hunting so many years ago I fell tweny feetfrom my tree stand and hit every branch on the way down.
My whole entire left side from my ankle to my shoulder was badly bruised and thought I'd had broke something or even fractured a rib or two.
Thank God my freind wasout with me that day , that injury put me out for the rest of the season.

Other: Leg (have hurt other parts/pieces too, but that one was the worse)

Was walking accross a dry creek bottom at a pretty good clip (was brushy with cattails, grasses, etc.) I walked directly into an old metal fence post that was bent over and pointed at probably a 30 - 40 degree angel... Ripped open a good size gash on my leg, lots of blood... Had to limp back to the truck...

How about 2004 the day before the Illinois opener and I was helping a buddy hangone last tree stand and I was trimming the last branch and long story short I ended up running a browning hand saw across the back of hand. Lots of blood and 45 stichs and a repaired tendion I missed opening morning!! Lucky for me my buddy Todd is a design engineer and he made me a brace that went on my elbow and my wrist strap went to that and when I lowered the poundage of my bow to 60# I could shoot 20 yards accurately so I got to hunt the rest of weekend..
