I sliced the top of my hand last wednesday, and it felt as if i had nicked the tendon on top of my knuckle. Last night i picked up a drill and snapped the tendon. I have 3 archery tags this year and cant get into a hand specialist till thursday. So i'm not totally sure what kind of cast they will be putting on. It does have to be surgically repaired which isn't the best news. My question is.. has anyone shot in a cast before and what type of release do you use? I have a 6 day backpack trip planned that I would like to still go on Sept 6th-11th. I had a 4 day trip planned for this weekend that doesn't look good. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
