looked up to my stand and got a chance fleck of something in my eye that scratched my cornea a bit, more annoying than anything, but somewhat painful and needed some kind of drops for a few days.

I'm stupid enough to have tried to scratch my back with an arrow. Yes it had a BH on it. Yes it hurt and bled profusely. It was an absent minded thing. I've done it with FPs on and just didn't stop and think. Sometimes I'm just not real bright.

Did this on October 23, 2004. Broke it in 3 places falling down a hill. My xTec made it unharmed bouncing off a rock. I had 18 of the next 23 days off of work and spent them sitting on my butt with my foot in the air.

So I took down a ladder stand for a hunting buddy to move it. Not being familiar with ladder stands and not thinking I untied the middle support bar from the tree then climbed up and unhooked the top of the stand. Made it down two steps or so and started going backwards and bailed out and twisted my knee and hurt my ankle.
Two weeks later I was going up a tree that had a branch to supplement a tree peg and it broke, leg slipped down and ankle cracked on tree peg, that was three years ago and still jacked up.
few cuts from broadheads over the years and sliced my hand while dressing a deer once.

I have never hurt myself but I have fallen from a stand before.
