    Glad the best came out of a worst case scenario Judge, wish you the best of luck during your procedure, and a speedy recovery after! the woods and game will be waiting for you when you get back!

    As someone mentioned, baby aspirin in the pocket is not a bad idea, it is important to remember that it should be chewed, not swallowed whole as it will start to work faster.

    Some may recall a few years ago the whole "cough cpr" thing, which suggested you cough deeply if you think you are having a heart attack, and this would act as compressions.

    Cough CPR can help, in correct cardiac circumstances, IF done correctly (at the correct time, for the correct cardiac condition) since most of us are not healthcare professionals, this is not recommended, as it can actually do more harm then good in the more than likely chance that you don't do them correctly.

    Baby aspirin, and a cellphone, are your best chances when you are alone, chew the aspirin as quickly as possible, and hit the emergency call button on the phone, even if you cant talk, they can at least get your location. I know not everyone is in the position to pay a monthly bill for a cellphone, but even a pre-paid one will do, and in some areas, even a phone that isn't activated, will still let you make the emergency calls out.

    It is amazing what your body and mind can do in a situation like that..
    My Bro-in-law owns a bush and cuts wood in the winter for his wood stoves.
    While cutting down a big oak tree it twisted and fell pinning him to the ground..
    He laid there a while trying to figure out how to get out of this mess..
    The chain saw was close enough that he started it up and cut his way out.
    But he had a broken pelvis..Now what..

    He crawled over to his tractor..climbed up on..got it started..
    and drove it a mile to the house..
    Once there he didnt have the strenght to stop it..so he just drove it around and around the house untill his wife wondered what was going on.
    So she ran out and he hollering..so she ran behind and climbed up on and got the thing stopped..
    Called 911 and medics come..
    Spent 3 weeks in Hosp..
    All mended now..
    Lesson learned...now when he goes to cut trees..she goes with him.

    Just amazing what adrenaline and Balls will do..when faced with danger

    A freiind of mine was bow hunting..and went to let his bow out of the tree..

    So he craweled on his hand and knews for 1/2 mile till the farmer happened to look out the window and seen him..
    so he 911 it and got him out..
    Spent a while in Hosp.
    Siince then has passed on..form heart bypass operation..

    Glad to hear you made it out OK. Just another note on the aspirin thing, make sure it is quick dissolving not coated. According to the numerous first aid/CPR (I'm still certified) courses I have taken it's best to place the aspirin under your tongue as it will be absorbed much quicker than by chewing. TC
