Default Public announcment..

Never draw back your bow then tilt it sideways to look at rest and accidently let it go. You could end up with a busted string and a big welt on your wrist. and it could have been worse.

This has been your public service announcement.. Now back to your regular scheduled program.

I did the same thing in high school with my old Pro Line. My buddy was sitting on the couch watching. I was standing there with a string in my hand, blown up bow in the other and he was on the floor balled up holding his package trying not to pizz himself because he was laughing so hard!

Last thing I saw was my arrow fish tailing under his belly, then my stomach ended up in my throat, then I found myself dangling from my safety harness trying to cuss, but I couldn't breath all that well.............

So close to turning into my best bow hunt I'd ever had and in a millisecond turned into my worst...........
