A Happy Ending

After reading the story of the "drive by shooting" in Kansas last week, reader Tracy sent me a link to a much more positive news story from her area. According to this toledoblade.com story on Dec. 7 Ohio bowhunter Michael Kane cut a femoral artery while field dressing a deer in the Goll Woods State Nature Preserve. Fortunately, another hunter, Ryan Price, heard the cries of the seriously injured Kane, and rushed to stop the bleeding until more help could arrive. Here's what Tracy had to say about the story. - K.H.

I wanted to share a positive story from my neck of the woods (and because I think positive "hunting" stories get very little, if any, coverage around here). This actually appeared on the front page (!!) of the Sunday edition of our local rag. My good friend and mentor called my attention to it because it illustrates the point that even seasoned hunters can be visited by serious accidents (okay, and because my knife handling skills are still not so hot...).

That is an awesome story with a great ending. This made me think that it would probably be wise for me to go and take a mini first aid course at the local Red Cross. You never know when it will come in handy. This goes to show even the most experience hunters are target for mishaps or accidents.

Thanks for sharing.

Well that's good to hear!
I know Ohio lost one Hunter this past week during the Muzzleloader season. Front page of the paper said a hunting accident, but the hunter was found shot multiple times and declared not an accident. Shame.
