Doing research on crossbow injuries.
Many hunting forums have postings containing conversations about crossbow injuries. If anyone has experienced a crossbow injury, please take a moment to take a quick survey at;

Just the other day at a BassPro in Orlando FL, a 16 year old with his parent went to buy a crossbow. While on the BassPro shooting range the youth fired the Styker crossbow and amputated the top portion of his thumb. This according to the archery department manager. Its just that easy.

Numerous accounts of finger(s) & thumb amputations. A few bolt injuries from strings and or limbs breaking.

This by know means is a "bashing" thread, but for research information. Please serous survey responses.

Thank you,

Friend of mine did it with my crossbow took off about a third of his thumb. He had shot the bow about 20 times before it happened. I had told him before hand make sure you do not put your fingers on top. People get used to shooting a rifle all their life and forget you cannot lay the thumb along the top where the string comes accross. This happens because people are concentrating on the target that they lay the thumb where the string comes accross. Need a guard so people cannot do this. Now once you have done it and your thumb is gone I guess you don't have to worry about it hitting it anymore. You Basically have a thumb removal kit in your hands if not done properly SD
