Two weeks ago I took my elderly father (84.5 years old) dove hunting.
We had to cut the trip short and head for the ER.
As they dug the pellets out, we were told that no vital organs had been damaged.
As a precaution, the patient was admitted to ICU.
After several days of care, the patient was released from the ICU, and advised rest, but could go back to work, but only light duty was advised.
Feeling much better, the patient headed out for another (and last) dove hunt of the year.
I felt it might help if the patient was more easily identified in the field, and a repeat of the week before would not occur.
So please, PLEASE, be careful and know your target before you squeeze the trigger !
The photos below are the before and after hospital shots.
And the precautions we took before last weekend.
