Recently a friend of mine stopped over and right away I noticed his face was severely battered and bruised. He was reluctant to tell me what had happened to him and after a little coaxing he explained what had happened. He was hunting in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula which this time of year can be quite cold. He had put on what most people know them as Mickey Mouse boots to keep his feet warm. Before entering the woods he attempted to cock his crossbow inserting his Mickey Mouse boot as far into the foot strup as the boot would allow. He pulled back the rope cocker and as it got close to the end of travel the foot strup of the crossbow pulled away from his boot and the whole crossbow flew butt end first into his face breaking his nose and a black eye a heavy weight fighter would be proud off. This is a seasoned hunter and did not asses the danger those boots present when cocking his crossbow.
