Default Well so long bow season

My dumb butt decided I needed to take out my finger with a 5lb hammer breaking it and dislocating my knuckle, I hit hard . I shoot LH so this is my “trigger” finger, I’m out for a while. Good luck boys!

Funny thing is I quit using a thumb release because of another injury! It's all good just frustrating. I'll be back at it soon enough

Ever tried shooting right handed? I'm right handed and have shot a left handed bow. I was way more accurate than I thought I'd. Might be worth a try.

Shot my first deer right handed with a patch on my left eye. Not a big deal just a little down time, it's a long season

I hit the same Tool Pusher twice with a 8lb sledge. I told him to move both times and he said “you won’t hit me”.

If you are left handed, how did you hit your left hand with a hammer?

Best time to work. Can't get anymore broke than it already is. You just have to watch the one attached to it lol. I'm the same as you, left eye dominant but right handed.

Well it’s worse than I thought. Wound up going to the dr today and it’s not only my finger but I also broke it across my knuckle off to an orthopedic surgeon to get it checked out tomorrow. The pain has been literally nauseating.

Sure hate to hear anyone losing a season, especially to an accident.

I know how I used to live for bow hunting season and it's gotta be a big disappointment.
