Mooch-

I bleed like a stuck pig most of the time. I've donated so much blood out there it ain't even funny. No biggie... my body produces more.

J-

I was tempted since I had the kiddies there and they wanted to. But, I figured it would be best to just go to the ER.

GOOD NEWS... Since nobody was willing to take these staples out at Elk... I'll be getting them out tomorrow... I can finally get a haircut now.

Just clean the wound very well.  Pack some betadine solution in the kit with the stapler.

You need to carry this with you. That way your fishing will not be interrupted next time.



heres the link

Maybe it is just me, but I don't think treating an arrow wound is a "do-it-yourself job"...

Hey guys,

That's a great thing to have around. It would've saved me 6 1/2 hours in a ER waiting room and the pain of taking the staples out myself with little wire cutters. One question... is there anything around to numb the area before the stapling party starts up??? The shots in my scalp HURT...  ALOT...

The shots hurt worse than the staples.......if you are only going to have one or two put in.  Two to 5 staples is a grey area.  More than 5 you are getting into a large wound and need to give some thought to something more than clean and shoot.
