Default Hunting Injuries

Pretty simple: Have you ever hurt yourself while hunting? Do tell...

Gruesome pictures and grotesque accounts of pain and suffering are encouraged.

I don't have too much to add here. Just the really minor stuff.....Cut finger, that sort of thing. My buddy had a heart attack and died while we were fishing though. Does that count?

I have taken bad falls on my back on several occasions that have taken their toll, but never dropped my gun.[:@]

I once fell 15 feet out of a tree getting an arrow that my brother had lodged into a branch in a tree while trying to shoot a nice buck. I was in the chiropractor for 3 months straight after that trying to get my back, shoulder and arm into the right place again. I cut the tree branch off with the arrow on it yet and gave it to him for a Christmas present. Who says Christmas shopping isn't dangerous!!!

Cut my fingers on broadheads badly one time. Other than that, nothing really besides dragging deer up and down hills for 30 minutes to get them out of the woods and causing my back to lock up!

I was running down a crippledgobbler one time and put my right ankle in a groundhog hole. It didn't break, but I think just about every ligament and tendon was damaged. No surgery, but it's still a mess, 10 years later. I had to crawl out through the field to recover the bird, then crawl back to the car. I got stung by a bee while I was crawling, which added insult to injury.

Another time, I was guiding a guy and he emptied his gun on a big tom. It was gonna get away if I didn't do something, so I ran it down like a leopard and gave it a Bill Goldberg Human Spear. Feathers went everywhere and I came out of the ordeal with a dead turkey and a separated shoulder. Ouch.

If my mother would've been around on either of those occasions, I'd still be eating soap.

I forgot to add that a few times bear hunting In Northern Mn I've stepped on ground bee nest's and been stung well over 100 times each time its happened. Surprisingly it didn't effect me at all.
