    I've considered taking along one of those packs that stop bleeding like the Israeli Battle Dressing or Quickclot, especially during rifle season. The IBD is $5 on Amazon. Read the reviews.

    Aside from an incident with a knife or broadhead or deer hoove or even a sharp rock, you could end up within range of someone like Dick Cheney and not be near a vehicle.

    Even if you don't draw blood, it can cause other issues! My brother cut his own bow string when he was trying to put his arrow back into his bow mounted quiver! Not serious but can sure ruin a hunt!

    If it happened to me two things would occur when I healed up; #1--my brother would be in for a good a**kicking for being a stupid idiot; #2--I would differently end all hunting relationships with him, until he took and passed a bowhunting education course. Glad your ok.

    Glad to hear your OK velvetfvr. One other tip about broadheads for you all, please use a broadhead wrench when working with your broadheads. I had a friend putting on broadheads the night before the hunt, he didn't use a wrench and ended up cutting his thumb really bad. He couldn't draw his bow for a few weeks, so be careful with them blades, they are meant to kill.

    True statement.. Everytime I'm putting on a broadhead, without a wrench, I'm thinking to myself "You are gonna be so pissed when you cut your finger off."

    I second this. I have a triangular scar on my left thumb where i sunk a muzzy blade down to the bone while getting ready for a hunt. ALWAYS USE A BROADHEAD WRENCH!

    Bowhunting safety 101. Dont walk with a nocked arrow behind someone. If your nocked up stalking be in the lead.
    Good luck and think safety 1st!
    I hunt because......

    Glad you're ok, could have definately been worse. They are sharp enough to pass through a bull elk, I always try to keep that in mind to keep myself from getting careless. Hate to have a hunt ruined b/c you get excited and careless, it happens though. Also if you do get cut, have something (triple antibiotic) to clean the wound. I was mtn. biking in Co a few years back, wrecked and scraped my knee real good. That didn't slow me down for that trip, but about 2-3 wks later I got a staph infection in that knee, and that put me down awhile.

    Good to hear velvetfvr. Sounds like your back in action, healed up and ready for action. Have a great, safe and successful hunt.
