Yup,... you can hurt yerself vacuuming up the house too.  :old: 
Flipped the quad last season at 62 yrs old broke a rib in my back got all beat along with the broken rib an snapped my shaft on the detector. Good thing a new found friend had an xtra shaft with him to loan me.
Made it back to camp grabbed a couple control box covers with Velcro stuck em together an used them for compression for the rib got my senses back an went back out an found a few nuggets that day.
We had just started the wifes weeks vacation an she wanted to find nuggets sooo bad I couldn't ruin the trip for her an call it quits.
Turned out I took her to an area where she found her 2 largest ones and I ended up with 12 nuggets that week and a lot of "sore" time doin it. :yesss: 
That wasn't the 1st time I'd been "beat up" :cry2:  in the field an probably won't be the last.
Its the nature of the game. Like Artic Dave said.
What ya wanna always be aware of are 2 biggies out there,....Damm swarmin pack of bees  AND   rattlers.  either one of those two will definitely ruin yer day.
Hapy Huntn :D
