Was out chasing jacks was putting an arrow on the string Broad head. Some how cut the string with the blade. Did not snap but slowly started to un wind . Was able to un bow the bow before it popped.Scary moment ,I have seen a bow string break have scars from the explosion. Always pay atintion and be carfull. We are playing with things that hill. Guns or bows.

I never did that one but did stick a friend of mine in the back with a broad head once when stepped in front of me while I was nocking an arrow. It left a pretty fair scar as he move sideways across the blade.

Absolutely possible. That is a L O T of pressure that has no string to stop it now, so it will "hyper-extend" itself forward if you will. Bad, bad business. That must have been quite a sight seeing poor TD scramble to unstring it before it let loose. Sure glad it didn't come to that.
