That sucks!! Man I am sorry to hear that. I feel really bad for you, and also for your buddy. He has to be feeling pretty low too. I hope things work out with your surgery.

Wow Mike that's a sad thing to have to go thru. Are you still friends with that hunting buddy? That must be awful for him too - I don't think I would ever pick up a gun again if that happened to me.
Well, Thank God you are still here! Make sure you tell the world what happened so that others may hear of this unfortunate accident and learn from it.
We'll say a prayer for that eye....

Man I don't know what to say. At first as I was reading I just knew you were going to say that you were just kidding and for every one to be safe. Man that has got to be every turkey hunters worse night mare. Man I am really sorry to hear this. I will pray for ya buddy and I hope that you get all or some of your eye sight back in that eye[]

I just hope that you'll still be able to enjoy spring turkey hunting after this!!!
