well fellow turkey fanatics I sit here at 1:30 PM October 5th 2010 and my heart just kind of flutters and a cold chill runs through me as I remember at just about this exact time last fall I found myself in the place no hunter ever wants to be. I had just been in a hunting accident and shot through the left thigh with a broadhead. The next few hours was a fight for my life as I bled out and tried to make my way to help before that precious life giving fluid ran out. I now know how great my God is that I survived, but also that in one moment of carelessness everything in life can change and exact a terrible price.
So my plea as we go into fall seasons is .....be safe and conscious of safety at all times. I never want to hear of another friend injured or dead from a hunting accident, help me with this wish.
All my love and appreciation to those who showed concern for me in my recovery. I am fully recovered from last fall's accident and ready to hunt again, except for one little thing. I had to go and break my right arm back in August and then had surgery on it September 2nd. So here I am all bummed up again, go figure. I still plan on calling for others and maybe even try shooting left handed with a shooting stick. Our Ohio season comes in this Saturday the 9th and runs through November, so I hope I can heal up in that time enough to shoot.
Here's to beaks in the dirt, happy hunting
