That sucks. If you need someone to sit in your stands and keep an eye out for big bucks this season, don't hesitate to ask;-)

reminds me of the time I fractured my left ankle while unloading my 4-wheeler outta the back of my truck one night. 4 wheeler flipped over the top of me and my ankle was the only thing that kept it off my head. Next morning tried to tough it out and hunt but when I finally hobbled to the base of my tree, I couln't climb my sticks.. I ended up leaving the woods in anger and frustration.. talk about a horrible feeling!
I hope like hell you can get out there bud, because I know how terrible it can feel. GL!

When mine broke it was 2 nice jagged breaks in the middle, with a small chunk of loose bone between them. 6-7 weeks and I was out of a sling but it took awhile to work all the soreness out. Don't push yourself too hard. Even if it feels better you might want to consider backing the poundage on your bow down a little bit.
