Went to a kids bowling party my 4yr/old was invited to. Some of the parents also bowled. I was on the first toss of the 6th frame when I felt it pop...ruptured biceps tendon. 2-3 month rehab...a mother }*%{+=] kids bowling party....at least it wasn't duckpins.

Hope to get a gun hunt in later in the year but I doubt I'll be drawing a bow this year.....even if I did harvest a deer I can't drag it, probably couldn't even dress it out till at least late December, according to rehab schedule.

Be careful guys....something so simple, something you'd never imagine or think of....I wasn't sky diving, or even riding a mountain bike.....MF'ing bowling.......anyway, I'll be here in spirit....save a strap or shoulder for me....surgery is next Thursday! This sucks!

Wow. So sorry to hear this.
It's amazing how minor things can hurt us.

Damn that sucks, sorry to hear. I don't have a place to take you but if you got a place or hunt public (maybe Patapsco) you could use my Tenpoint, its no Barnett Ghost but shoots good. I'll dress, drag and load your deer. Not a big deal.

If you live near Frederick I will kill a deer for ya and take it to the butchers for pickup. It will be killed with a Barnett Ghost 410, but if you dont mind, then let me know. All deer are immediately removed from the field. Just a thought if you are near the area.

Generous offers guys...class act(s)...I think in gonna just see how it goes for starters. I know the first 2 weeks completely immobile arm...then therapy and range of motion excercises...thanks again guys, very generous....but I've come to get used to seeing strangers helping each other here on MWC. I'll keep the thoughts in mind and if it seems to make sense I'll definitely reach back out. I don't live or work anywhere near Fredrick but if it makes sense or work takes me up that way I'll get in touch with you APG

Elbow...it felt like someone snapped a chop stick in my arm....I knew it right away....I walked off the lane, went to bar and grabbed a beer and a bag of ice....and yes, it did not feel good at all [smile]....actually not too bad now...but when I try to lift anything more than a can of soup I can't....I can hold in a straight arm position but can't "curl" anything and can barely twist a door knob

Sorry to hear Anthony. That does suck. I tore something in my shoulder this summer working out. It's my left shoulder so I can shoot but it's painful. MRI was inconclusive but after a month of PT it still hurts in certain motions. Not sure I'll be using the climber. But I got good properties with a ladder stand, ground blinds and hang ons. Got a used Horton Crossbow that my 10 year old scored with last year that's available for use if you feel up to it. You got my number

Bummer. Don't try and rush it. Let it heal completely before trying to draw your bow.

^^^ I plan on pushing it, but not rushing it.

Unfortunately, this is not my first rodeo under the knife....left forearm broke in 7 places.....metal plate and 9 screws. Right forearm/wrist broke in 5 places..... 5 screws and 2 pins. Left clavicle broke in 3 places .....metal plate and 7 screws. Jaw broke in 3 places..... 3 metal plates and 15 screws. ....a separated AC joint, a half dozen concussions and partridge and a pear tree[smile]

However, breaks and structural surgeries are a different breed from soft tissue injuries and joint repairs....so this will be new for me expecting a full recovery.

Once again, thanks for the offers. I'm gonna try and bust my butt to get as much house work done in the next week as I can....doc said you can't do anymore damage, up to you if you can deal with the pain.

Anyway, be careful out there and stay away from those extremely dangerous activities like bowling and badmitton! Stick to something safer like trap or skeet shooting.

I am....on the AA/CC line....again awesome offer(s) and very much appreciated! I really don't know if enough can be said for the brotherhood and the generosity shown on this site. ive helped a few here and there but that doesn't compare to what I've been offered on this thread and in other aspects....just very cool and very heart warming.

Halltrail, very nice gesture....I guess we'll see how it goes, I know I'll be out of commission for a while....and yes, I appreciate it, but I just don't know how I'd feel about someone else dragging and gutting a deer for me....stubborn pride or maybe that it's part of the hunt for me?....it almost would feel like a guided trip and I'm not sure how I feel about that....I always valued the I did on my own "thing"....but then again in reality there are very few things we do on our own....someone or something always helps or hinders...corny thoughts I guess(?)

Regardless... yours and others who have offered are much appreciated.

I assume you are also in SOMD? Pm as needed.

The doctor said I couldn't screw it up more so if I can deal with pain so be it.....I'm trying to do some yard work and get house as right as possible....it's crazy I can use a pole clip to trim branches but I can't turn a door knob...I can pick up a portable air compressor but I can't put a can of soup on the shelf
