In the ten years I've owned crossbows I have never dry-fired so instead today I did something even more stupid. My thumb was above the rail in the travel path of the string. No problem with the bow (bolt hit the target 2 inches low) just not paying enough attention to where my thumb was. Doc thought I was nuts cause I snapped over 20 photos during the whole procedure while he was working on me. A little tricky using the android one handed.

Seven Stitches for now and an appointment with the plastic surgeon next week.

What the heck. Did the bolt do that or like you said, dry fired? String? Bow come apart? What? Sorry to hear and see this, prayers for a full recovery. Great pics though!

Ouchy. Hope it heals up quick. Will you still be able to hunt this weekend?


To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

Gonna give it a shot. CF rifles and shotguns are out as I can't grip the fore stock.

Holy Crap! At least you still have something for the plastic surgeon to work with or you couldn't give a up
