Here's you go guys, have a laugh on me, even though I wasn't laughing at the time!
I was out yesterday with the shotgun after a few magpies and pigeons yesterday - No decoys, just a bit of walk about as it wasn't raining (For a change). Got a few shots in (Missed a couple but did manage to drop a few including a left and right). I eventually came to a fence that I had to cross. Unloaded the shotgun and rested it up against the fence.
This fence isn't very old, a sheep wire fence with one single strand straining wire on the top. I put one foot half way up the sheep wire with one hand on the fence post and then swung my other leg over. Just as I swung my leg over the strand that I had my foot on snapped! I went down with all 13 stone of me on the with fence one leg either side of the straining wire. The straining wire caught me square on right between the crown jewels!
Now I've felt many different types of pain before but nothing like this, I thought I had castrated myself! When I eventually managed to get myself off the fence all I could do was to squat down for about 5 minutes and to allow the pain to subside and the tears in my eyes clear.
Walking back to the car (Only about half a mile) was a painful experience I can tell you.
When I got home I told the wife and she laughed till there were tears in her eyes - She does like to get a restful nights sleep, and I'm sure she does like to see me suffer!
I have just had a shower this morning and noticed that the crown jewels are a rather strange shade of black and blue but not too sore so hopefully no long term damage done.
All I can say is thank God to wasn't barbed wire on top of that fence!
And before anyone asks - NO - Definitely no photos available!
