Hunting is great, but you have to remember it’s inherently dangerous. I was reminded of that today.
I was flanking at the edge of our group about 50yds ahead of the line. Rooster jumped up and somebody shot across the field at a diagonal...
...right at me. Nothing quite like hearing a whole lot of birdshot whistling through cornstalks and right passed your head...
...or in this case into it.
That spot in the middle of my forehead is the result of a no. 5 shot from a 12 gauge shotgun.
I got lucky, and I’m glad I was wearing shooting glasses. Hurts like a sonofabitch.
Update: woke up and took a shower this morning, looked in the mirror and noticed something
Did a little self surgery and:
Look at that. It was still in there. Now it’s not.
