Maybe trying to shoot a crossbow bolt out of a compound? My arrows won't go back far enough to come off the rest.

That could be it. Impossible to draw back an arrow past the bow and hand. My crossbow bolts are smaller. The projectile ended in a point that was flush with the shaft, so it was for target practice. He is lucky it was not for hunting, the damage would have been much more serious. Idiot fooling around and learning a life lesson.

There are over draw rests used with shorter arrows. Pretty common actually.

Hi Marine! I learned something new today, smaller arrows! Still trying to picture the physics of the accident. Wouldn't the arrow start pointing down after the front loses contact with the bow and goes pass the hand? I have a crossbow, but never owned a bow. You can not hunt with either in Germany, so they are only for sport.

They can jump off the rest when you let them go. I'll see if I can find a pic.

See that extended arrow rest? Some people get downright stupid with them, modify them, use the shortest arrow they can... That is how the earlier pic usually results. I believe the concept is that a shorter arrow may fly father with less drop, but I'm not sure.
