    look out duck shooters

    I had to take the cook to A&E this am ( slammed her finger in the van door ...... her , not me ) and on the wall there was a notice asking all people who were injured during duck shooting to advise the A&E team of this . Included were , the obvious ( bullet holes ) , slipping on way to mai mai , falling while climbing fence ......ect ect...... they covered it well , basically any injury in any way related to duck shooting. They said it was for some study but ( call me cynical ) I reckon is coz Acc want to put a levy on game bird licenses .... ?

    More people have died playing rugby lately than in this year's roar and duck season.

    Yep I'd whatch that one!
    We in the uk have just had similar where your GP dose a check. They started off saying it was free. Next they tried to charge us
    Now some want to skip out on ethical grounds..so much for the hippocratic oath!
    Bloody sham!
    Now if they don't return the form to the police in so many days the cops can carry on an issue the license.
    Gotta make you wonder what this one is all about.

    SO THE BIG Question is WHATS COOKING

    In terms of deaths, yeah I agree. However rugby codes and various cycling sports must win on knee, ankle and wrist injuries by heaps. Every mountain biker I know has had several serious offs resulting in hospital, ditto every dirt biker.

    Exactly, or multiple times over if you have a few bikes.

    Bingo. And none of the rugby guys pay acc either. No league stats?

    I wonder what the injury rates are per participant. Lots more people playing rugby that out hunting in any given week, so higher total number of injuries would be expected and normal. It's the RATE they matters.

    why diont they do a study on how many acc workers spend their time playin with themselves instead of helpin the people they,re paid to help.
    oops I forgot you cant invest in gas stations and other shite if you have to pay out for injured bastards.
    ive known them to be obstructive before but since this lots been runnin them they,ve become downright cruel callous and deliberately fuckin ignorant.
