While hunting on a ballot block during the red stag roar I fell down the side of a mountain while traversing a steep track. Thankfully i was stopped from a more severe drop by a tree, however i was left unable to move and was experiencing extreme pain in my back. The accident occurred at 2 pm. I activated my locator beacon and waited for help to arrive hoping that it had worked. It was getting dark and i thought that i was in for a night in the open.
At 6pm the rescue helicopters arrived and flew me to Queenstown hospital.
I had sustained back injuries and torn ligaments in my elbow. I spent the following 3 -6 months recovering from these injuries.
I’m going back this year and hope to keep both feet firmly on the ground.
Words of wisdom
hope to keep both feet firmly on the ground.
Thank you note
