Injuries: In 1995 Caudle accidentally shot an arrow through his hand, forcing him to endure surgery, a 45-degree cast and extensive physical therapy. Still, he competed the very next weekend. Why? Because it was for $50,000 dollars. Caudle continues to suffer scar tissue buildup from the accident and can't fully stretch out his hand.
