Woke up it was in mid 30's with the wind howling...went back to sleep..just too dangerous especially in the dark...
So at noon I decide to move a cam..still windy ..but I can see and hear while looking skyward. Dumb ,dumb, sound and not from above...sorta...3-4 in. diameter tree smacked me right in the face as it fell over. No sound and I never saw it coming...Dang my whole face hurts now! bright lights exploded behind my eyes and I instantly got queasy. Got back home eyes watering like mad...Mr. B said Aught don't look good...I said I think I have a concussion...told him what happened ....he said Oh ya...... I can see where it hit you and your bleeding...left a 1 in. cut and scratches.....hey I lucked out...did'nt knock me out..and didn't brake my nose!.....always a good side Lol
So when I give warnings in the as I say..not as the dummy does  @--0--0137

I was told by a doctor once that the queasy feeling and all the stars you see are part of the blunt trauma you experienced. Be careful out there! That happened when I was flyfishing once. Fell down so hard on a rock that I thought I was going to heave and the body felt warm and funny, but not in a funny way, just kind of different. Had to sit for awhile and drink some water from my water bottle. Finally started to feel better for for a little bit if someone would have come by and asked if was OK I would have said no, I need to get to the ER. Turns out I didn't but at the time I felt that way.

Thanks.  yes safety first and I KNOW BETTER!...rested with whopper head ache the rest of the day...all I could think was...If that little tree hurt that bad and managed to break skin ..what if it was 6in. in diameter?  ##$%#12

ALL because I want to locate those stupid Tom's...went out this a.m. in . winter gear it was so cold...should be hunting deer holy cow they are every where...not a single peep from Tom's or sign of either...Will try camp Friday when I go get my glasses.

P.S.....No decoys this time
