    What not to do :)

    So we made the call to go for a hunt this weekend as it was time to try and put some more veni in the freezer, got halfway to hunting spot and passed a camper van with four german tourists on the side of the road scratching their heads. Turns out they didn't have the right tools for the job so 15min of jacking up and changing the tyre it was all done. got given 2 beers and $50 cash so was a great start.
    Got to Spot X and heading up the hill for maybe 10mins we spotted 2 yearlings way out in the open so lay down and shot them 180 yards. hi fives and photos done it was magic but the good luck had to end somewhere 3rd cut of gutting the deer and i managed to slip and cut my bloody finger with a freshly sharpened knife. Seeing the fat and blood squirting out i informed my hunting mate i had cocked up and needed to wrap it up quick.
    We don't normally carry a first aid kit (as we won't need that, i say to myself ) but had put one in for this trip for some reason, very glad we did!!!
    patched up i carried all the gear back to the truck while mate gutted both deer, i head back up the hill and we got both deer to the truck and headed home seeing 4 more deer driving out,
    then to A&E 3 friggn hours in the waiting room 3 stitches later i was in bed at 3am.
    All in all a great trip to get some meat, but will be taking a lot more care next time and won't be doing that again.
    Also will always carry a first aid kit. People learn from my experience!!!

    Ouch, but at least you go some meat. Nasty place for a nick though.

    A&E is not the speediest place to be at anytime but on a weekend is even slower than a 100 year snail with arthritis as they seem to have a lot of "clients".

    When I was there most of the other visitors were there as a result of beer!!

    Nice story Burtonator.

    Are you sure that wasn't the back hay paddock.

    Nice slice too .............. Just remember "Chicks Dig Scars".

    But be careful with those sharp knives man ...... next time you may only be able to count to four on that hand.

    Cheers

    Well done! I've done a similar thing while gutting a deer. Luckily my 'paranoid' mate had a first aid kit. A lesson learnt 😀
    If my work annoys me, I cull them

    Ouch! Chainsaw trauma kits are small light and should get you through most knife fights, I know from experience...
