Tis the season for ice fishing and all kinds of other winter activities. Best Gore member @try2flyjumpndie was doing the former when he had a little head-bump with his auger and it lead to the fingertip injury we see in the pictures. In his own words:
Had a little mishap after ice fishing while packing up. Went to grab tent bag and my auger was holding down from heavy winds. Needless to say the blades are still sharp. Bled quick and like a siv.
There must be different size augers, because the one I used for ice fishing is basically a large screw. I’ve seen mechanical ones, powered by diesel engines, but I only had a manual one. Still, its blades would not make a knife like cut. So I’m thinking the one you used must have been a portable one for smaller holes in the ice?
Either way, thanks for the pics, @try2flyjumpndie:
