This site is about having some fun, learning, helping others, and enjoying the commaradre' of other waterfowl hunters. And if you do not like those 4 things, then do not let the door hit you on the way out of here.

I think there is a lesson in this one...

This is why they recommend that you check the arrows before each use. I have carbon arrows for one bow: my practice bow (lighter poundage) that I used to work on my form. the rest of the time (90% of it), I shoot cedar shafts. So I'm thinking I only have a <10% chance of that happening.

OUCH!!!!!

PS: I'm thinking this fella is a lefty?

It reminds me of the e-mail that is going around about the guy getting shot in the back of the head by his buddy with a broadhead. It is nasty looking. I have the e-mail with the pictures if any one wants to see it. I'm not sure how to post it or I would do that. Can I just copy it in?

That is why you always need to be checking out your arrows everytime you go out to shoot. I hve seen pics of it done with alum. arrows too. A nick in the carbon or a dent in the alum. will do that sometimes.

:eek: :eek: I agree he must be a lefty. :eek: :eek:

It could have happend like what happend to my dad except my dad was a whole lot luckier it looks like.He pulled back his bow just practicing and when he got o full draw he heard a pop and before he could let off the string broke and the arrow (carbon) split in 3 pieces and luckly none hit him like that.He did have one small piece go in his hand.

Guys check your carbon arrows EVERY time you shoot them. Just grab hold of both ends and flex the arrow, roll it over and flex some more. Can you imagine this same pic, but in your face or eye?

That is most certainly a good way to ruin a hunt or target practice! While it does not make me immune, I shoot cedar arrows 85-90% of the time. I still check 'em!
