I Just needed to vent ...

After waiting all year for the late archery and flintlock season I managed to break my trigger finger requiring 4 stitches. I wonder how bad that will hurt I do try to hunt (which I will) and if I can butcher a deer by myself.

I hate when I do that !!!!

Use your middle finger to pull the trigger. Had something similar happen quite a while ago. Its not hard to adjust to doing it.

I have a very good friend who lost his trigger finger in an industrial accident 30 years ago. He gets along very well using his middle finger to pull the trigger on his rifles, pistols and bow release.

Take a picture of yourself holding up your middle finger, and post it on here.

Then we will see your post....next year....after your 12 month time out.

Re: I Just needed to vent ...

I have 2 crossbows as well and I tried the middle finger with that this morning. My smashed index finger( due to the metal splint) will be hit by the bow string causing me to do " The pain dance" once again.

I will let it calm down for a few days and then see how it handles the recoil.
