    Spent a whole season in a blind after I shattered my lower leg. Drove me nuts but better than sitting at home.

    @Chuck Just wanting to make sure I don’t do anything wrong and mess up my recovery. At 68 recovery not as easy as it was 20 or so years ago.

    I had 13 screws and a plate in my wrist earlier this year and I opted for a crossbow this season! Sucked I couldn’t pull back my bow, but way better than sitting at home and not in the woods!! Prayers for a speedy recovery!!

    My wife just had her knee replacement surgery in October. The recovery is painful and slow but keep up with the PT you will be happy when you’re done and chasing whitetails again. Best of luck.

    I’m due for that myself, just cant afford to miss work for 8-12 weeks after surgery and i’m as nervous as a hooker in church about it….

    Just do what the doctors tell you and you will be back out chasing deer again before you know it.

    @Billy hang in there. Listen to your doc and PT. Don’t push yourself. You will be back hunting stronger before you know it.

    @John I know what you mean. I’m drawing short term disability during my time off, but with having to go up and down several flights of stairs offshore, my knee was starting to be a safety issue for me.

Enjoy deer hunting and white perch (crappie) fishing. Raising two granddaughters 16 & 5. Turned 66 this year so the hunting and fishing is my relaxation from working 6 months a year offshore in the Gulf Of Mexico. Keeping up on Go Wild helps the 2 weeks at a time offshore go by quicker.
