Dang that hurt

Postby glenn » Sun Aug 26, 2012 8:24 am

Reading about dove hunting reminded me of one of my most painful hunting experiences. When I was in high school I had a big dove hunting weekend planned for the opening weekend. Our first football game was that Friday night and I sure was glad we won so we wouldn't have practice on Labor Day.

Anyway, Saturday we headed out to my buddy's family farm for the next 3 days. I had my 16 gauge and a case of long brass shells. As far as numbers killed I'll just say we easily reached our limits each day. Of course, I think we averaged about a dozen shots per bird.

As I was getting ready to take a shower that Monday night I figured out why my shoulder hurt. From about 2 inches up the side of my neck to below the bend of my elbow it was solid purple. The pain insantly tripled after I saw it. Did I mention I left with a case of long brass shells? I only came home with a handful left from that case.

I could barely lift my arm the next day and dreaded having to go through the full contact practices we always had. As I was getting dressed my coach saw it and I knew my pain was only going to get worse as a result. Lucky for me he thought it happened in the game on Friday night. I never was brave enough, or dumb enough to tell him the truth. It took almost three weeks for it heal. That sure did hurt.

My Daddy thought it was funny too when I asked him to buy me another case or 2 of shell.

I'm doing good Aaron. How are you and the family?
