My ear hurts

Always expect the unexpected,monday morning I was in the woods early missed a doe,decided to come out of my stand and check the other side of the property for a tree to use my climber,for when the wind isnt favorable from my ladder.I found a perfect spot in a pin oak,I started to climb and cut limbs as I went up,when all of a sudden a branch swung around and a twig on that branch made a perfect be line right into my ear canal,I went to my doctor and he made me an appt. with an ear specialist turns out that twig cut my ear drum.Moral of the story:I better take care of my eyes cause if I cant hears um I better be able to seez um.

That stinks. Hope that ear heals up pretty good. A cut ear drum is a new one for me. Is it very painful, hearing loss, what?

I can kind of relate to that. Only a large tree branch blasted me right in the eye ball like a pool stick size getting stabbed straight in the eye. It happened at work last year. Hope you heal up fast.

Thats cool there is basically no pain. That constant ringing would get nerve racking though.

Gator get a hearing test. Ringing is a sure sign of irreversable damage. I have to wear two hearing aids over damage I caused from shooting without protection many years ago.

I wish you luck.

yikes.i get the impression the woods dont like us sometimes what with all the pricker bush's and brambles and i cant count how many times some stick has whipped across my face man that stings.hope they patch ya up and you dont miss too much hunting time

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
