Default Y’all be careful out there!

Friday afternoon hunt didn’t end so good for me. I slipped and fell getting down from a tripod. Those tripod steps can inflict some serious injuries. I could use a few prayers from the TBH community. Y’all be safe out there! Prayers to all!

Hope you heal up quick! I have always been a pretty fearless climber even as I got older. However just in the last couple years my balance - and my confidence while climbing - has diminished considerably. I am now very cautious and deliberate when going up and down my ladder stands and tripods. No longer climb trees. If I did fall I’m pretty sure I no longer bounce - more likely splat.

Update....after 4 surgeries and 7 day stay in the hospital I should be on my way home tomorrow! Major open wounds and loss of tissue from the tripod steps tearing into my leg in two places. Confirm your foot placement on those tripod steps or any type of step. Could of been much worse, didn’t miss major arteries my much! Thanks for all the prayers, it really lifted my spirits!

Wow that’s crazy. I’m glad you are getting fixed up and healing.

What brand tripod when you have time to answer.

Unsure of the brand. It was purchased at Academy 15 plus years ago. Steps were a 1” flat bar bent in a L shape with a another 1” flat bar that was bent as a support bar that stuck above the step. AKA “meat hook”! I’ll post a pic of the tripod when I find one. Arrived HOME at 7 pm last night. Feels so good to be home!

Glad youre home. Sounds like a terrible ending to a hunt. Id suggest running over that tripod and putting in a nice bow blind to replace it! But in all seriousness, I hope you have a speedy recovery and get back in the field before this season is over.
