My buddy did when battling a staph infection from a knee replacement. We actually packed in elk hunting with a IV pole .

Bill. Talk to your doc about hunting with it. My father in law had the same situation as you and ended up needing a spacer put into his hip for a few months. I would assume you would be fine as long as you have some sort of compression clothing on up top to keep the line / ports close to you so they don't get pulled out. Hope to see you out hunting this fall and reading all your stories

I wouldn't think it would be a problem as long as the PICC was fixed closely to your arm with something like Coban and has been in for more than a few days.

Talk with your Dr. I would be hesitant without getting the OK. He might recommend getting, dare I say it......... an X-bow!!

I am sure you could get a Dr. statement that would allow you to shoot one at least for this year.

Hi Bill, I'm an RN who places Piccs on a vascular access team. My full time job. Yes it's OK to shoot with a PICC. I'd highly recommend an arm sleeve of some sort (google arm sleeve, there's lots of choices). You want to protect it from getting caught on something and partially pulling it out or pulling it out completely. The tip of the Picc is in a very specific position and must remain there. Your therapy and potential complications depend on it. Keep it clean, dry and intact and you won't have any issues. Arm sleeves work great.
