Preseason Plunge

JUST WEEKS BEFORE DEER SEASON, I HOPPED ON MY ATV AND RODE OUT TO CHECK MY STAND.

I CLIMBED INTO THE PERCH, WIPED LEAVES OFF THE PLATFORM AND CHECKED FOR LOOSE BOARDS.

AS I LEANED AGAINST THE RAIL TO CLIMB DOWN, THE BOARD GAVE WAY…

…SENDING ME PLUNGING 12 FEET, WHERE I LANDED ON A STUMP.

MY LEG WAS BROKEN!

I DRAGGED MYSELF 50 FEET TO THE ATV…

STRUGGLED ABOARD AND DROVE IT HOME. MY LEG HEALED, BUT MY SEASON WAS OVER.
