Well this is what happened on day one. My little brother accidentally stuck a broadhead in my calf as we were putting the sneak on a giant. So I ended up in the winnemucca ER with 7 stitches but after seeing that monster I am ready to be about there tomorrow!

Did he fire the arrow or just stab you with it. I need details. That looks painful. Granted it will be a cool scar with a heck of a story.

He accidentally jabbed me with it. The big buck just spooked and we were walking back and all of a sudden I felt a sharp pain and yelled. Then my boot started turning red and part of my pant leg but I still had to walk 15 more yards to the fence. Then no cell service and finally we got ahold of 911. They met us and put something new on the hole to keep pressure on it. It did get part of the muscle. The big one got to water before I did today so went back to the hotel and will hit it super hard his weekend. I AM going to get a good goat!

Holy F@!k velvet ! That isn't good. Was it a fixed blade I'm guessing or a mechanical ? Was surely shary enough !
Good luck on the rest of your hunt !

Dude that sucks! Atleast we know that he was using a good sharp blade. :eek: That is the second time I have heard of that happening.

Everyone needs to be careful with Broadheads. I learned the hard way and isn't fun when you can only do certain things. The good thing is blood comes out of Sitka with just water!

Shot about 2 inches under a toad (and I mean monster) this morning at 55 yards. I don't think I will ever live this one down or stop replaying that shot in my head. Out for revenge next weekend.

How are the goats acting? I head out friday to give her he!! Last time i scouted they were almost territorial and would let me stay with in bow range for a while before bolting. Just curious if anyone else has noticed this begavior?

They are starting to rut but the ones I got on wouldn't let you in my 80 yard range. They liked 500 yards to 3 miles.
