    Hi boys and girls!! Had an accident at work Monday morning. I was opening up the wrought Iron gates around my building bright and early. Not paying attention, the gate closes shut at the middle hinges and crushes my left thumb. go to the doctor, x rays, and I broke the bone!! Its my draw hand so I try and shoot my bow, and thank the Good Lord no pain !! Ill be back at it this weekend. Just dreading gutting and dragging if I'm lucky enough to score! IMG-2595.JPG

    Take two straps. One around its neck one around your waist long enough that it doesn't hit you in the back of the legs and start walking. Good luck brother and I hope it heals up quickly.

    Sorry to hear that grommel, it looks like a nasty bruise! I guess it could have been much worse though. I hope you mend quickly.

    Grommel I have to ask how many times have you bumped that thumb this week? The thumb has to be one of the worst injuries for that you use them so much.
