I've been there.

The best part was the bone fragment jumping around when I tried to shoot a rifle.

Time for a crossbow.

I once decided to try and remove a broadhead from an arrow without a tool and had some instant regret followed by a lengthy one handed drive to the ER in the wee hours of the morning. I was able to convince the ER nurse to glue it together, wrap in tape, and help me get it into my hunting glove avoiding stitches and went back hunting. I used to be tougher, or dumber. Probably both.

Yikes OP. I have a scar I'll carry to my grave on the inside of my left hand I got when my horse decided he had enough of standing on three legs and pulled his front foot out right after I drove a nail through his shoe.

I’ve got the same scar on the same finger from one that pulled a foot just as I was about to twist the nail off, to the bone, out the end, had the vet sew it up.

What the heck! What is it with horse shoers and guns? If I’d a known there were so many farriers on this site I’d have a ton more posts. - any of y’all get sick of explaining what a farrier is so you just say your a horse shoer, then people are either like “ they still do that” or they think you said you shoot horses for a living.

Ouch! Makes me glad our horse was barefoot growing up because I had hoof duty for about a decade. Heal up!

Those of us with children know that it's rarely a good idea to interrupt someone in the process of doing something stupid - it usually increases the chance of the outcome you're trying to avoid.
