Just can’t win this year!!! On July 18th I had an arrow blow up and go into my hand. Severed a critical tendon. It’s been a very long 8 weeks. Just got my cast off a couple days ago. After some brutal rehab the last few days I’ve been able to shoot a couple arrows out of my new bow. I’m done after 2 though.
I just checked the draw weight with my trusty Walmart luggage scale that I’ve been using for 10 years. Well, it blew up into a couple dozen pieces and derailed my strings. Haven’t checked the limbs yet.
Can’t believe I didn’t catch a piece with my face.
And just as a reminder this is what happens when you shoot a cracked carbon arrow. Like I said, been a long 8 weeks. Hoping I can get one or two arrows a day down range to slowly setup my bow and then make it out the week for elk season.
You’re due for some Good luck if you can ever get back in the woods
Prayers your way man! As I always say... Use the proper tool for the job at hand. You got off lucky! It could have been way worse, like losing an eye!
I hope your bow is ok, and I hope you can get out and have a blessed and successful season!
Sue WalMart ! Kidding of course, but someone would. Hope you heal up in time to hunt.
But your right, check all!

Sorry about the luck man. Keep plugging at it. It'll get better.
I have a muzzleloader I can sell ya in two weeks, maybe you should stay away from bows for a bit...
Dang bro,,,hopefully some better luck will come your way!
Was at a shoot the other day, last target of the day, drew the bow settled on the 12 ring, pulled through the release BANG!! WTH was that? Lady behind me asked if I was ok while I was trying to figure out what happened still. A guy came up and said your arrow broke! Sure enough it snapped about an inch in front of the fletching. Fairly new PS23. Only thing I can think of is that I hit the arrow the night before and didn't notice. I had not shot that arrow all day until then. The vanes went over the top of my hand and raised a small welt, but I am counting my blessings. Bow is fine, ended up shooting the last target with a different arrow with no issues. FLEX THOSE ARROWS ALL! Never thought it would happen to me.
DO NOT BORROW A MUZZLELOADER!! I can't even begin to imagine what would happen with you and that thing lol. Although can't imagine drawing a bow back with a cheap scale I would think you're do for some great luck as well!
You should bubble-wrap yourself before you head out to the elk woods!
Dude, You're going to have the most enjoyable season this year. There's some good times ahead. You've done burned through all your bad luck.
