wrap a bandaid around my pointer finger. I had wacked it with arrow
fletchings while shooting a new bow which had not been set up completely
yet. The nocking point was too low leading to the arrow dragging across my
hand more than usual. These were arrows that I made myself and have been
shooting for months with no problem. Of course that didn't stop my from
shooting so the finger started to hurt more and more when I switched back
to the other bow. So I can manage to hurt myself even with arrows which
are just fine. ;} Just goes to show there are more ways than you can
shake a stick (or stick and string) at for managing to cause owies.
