well hope someone learns from this but should imagine there's only me dumb enough.
so been in a syndicate for my 2nd year and was my 3rd time going, well headed out at 4.30 saturday morning shot a deer at 7.15 through lungs 80 yds, and it ran 200 yds into deep cover in the forest. so at 7.30 started grolloch as i got to the rib cage deer moved under pressure so went to steady it with my left hand whilst still cutting.
oh dear knife came out of deer and straight through my artery in my left wrist but as with most i guess everyone has cutt them selfs whilst grolloching.it was bad, blood squirting 6 inch out off my wrist. so kept calm and headed back to main path where as cool as owt i got my phone out to ring ken who i,ve gone up with this is were it went wrong.
when i joined syndicate i only had a work phone and now have a personal one aswell and thats the one i had on me. went to ring ken no number in my phone, dunt worry ring 999 **** i dunt even know name of forest i,m in the farm we are stopping at or the nearest village what a numpty. now i,m panicing and i,m losing blood fast tried ringing girlfriend she dint answer so txt telling her i,m cut bad might not make it and to tell kids i love them. so after 10 mins of blind panic i calmed down and thought things through, put a shoe lace round my arm to stop the flow of blood and rang my company phone too which a work partner answered dint tell him what i,d done but just said i needed ken deer in my phone his number. long story short got hold of ken and it took him 30 mins to get to me went to local hospital and when they saw the blood squirting out phoned an ambulance to take me 30 miles to a proper a&e and got sorted.
yes i,ve read all the does and don,ts but never thought it would happen to me, well for sure i,m never going to be in that postion again just afew basics and i could av saved myself alot of blood and stress so this is just a warning to novices please know the basics, phone numbers name of forest, farm or nearest village.
i,ve only wrote this so no one else makes the same mistake and believe me i,ve come close to death afew times but dint know much about it at the time but when your sat watching your blood pumping all over and to get in a blind panic it was the most scared i,ve ever been in my life. i desevre too have the piss ripped out of me but as long as someone learns from my cock up i,m happy to take the slack.lol
