Sorry to hear that. That must not have been a very fun 1/2 mile walk. Hopefully the surgeon has some good news for you.

sorry to hear, that sucks. for bird hunting, you could post if you have a group of guys, or train your dog to stay at the end of the field and drive to the other end, then when he sees you get out, he can kick some birds up to you (if you do this, find me so I can get your dog's pups!)! If you were going to go deer hunting, make one of you buddies of family members help you carry your gun and such to your location of choice.

Sorry about the broken foot, it's a bad time of year for that to happen. I broke my right wrist in Mid Oct. many years ago but I was able to hunt anyhow. The foot is much more difficult to deal with. I'll take a broken arm over a leg any day. Later on maybe you can make some money runnin footballs!

Broke my leg when I was about 16 in september late. After I finally got socks to fit over cast I was back out at least posting on deer hunting opener. If I remember right I never went back to get it cut off , it pretty much rotted off. Maybe a different story now 20 years later. Good Luck.

Bad timing, hopefully you can limp out to a deer stand to at least say you tried...

If worse comes to worse,you could get a permit to shoot and hunt from your car.I pretty sure you can get this from the DNR and have the doctor fill it out and get it back to them.Only problem is time is getting short for the paperwork.Maybe e-mail it all back and forth.You could still deer hunt this way if walking is to hard.

are they putting you in a walking cast of any sort? I would try finding a ground blind and look at Arctic Shield Boot Covers. Put that over your cast foot and walk out if your terrain allowes. I saw a guy last night one leg deer hunting stands might be out of it for getting in and out but why not a ground blind?

I don't know if it's over yet. I got a Jones fracture college. I was on crutches for 4 weeks and then good to go. You may still get all of December. Good luck with the doctor and maybe things will work out for you.

gundy89,did they put a walking cast on it at all? i know i can make it out deer hunting i have a big box stand that the guys built steps to just tonite. but the walking to the duck blind i am sure is out as of right now. and the pheasant hunt is a no go but goose hunting on the week-ends should be ok as long as i have grunts. but the bad thing is i save all my vacation for the fall and am solo most of the time so that is out to

find a young person willing to help ya out if you take them with. You'd be shocked someone 25 and younger would do if you took them goose hunting or something like that. I know if I was invited to go with I'd help out a lot especially since I've never been able to go out before. Otherwise try finding a 4 wheeler to help with the gooses.

No, they stuck me in a regular cast and crutches. It sucked big time, but I was good to go after 4 weeks. I was playing football at the time and got hurt almost exactly 4 weeks from the start of camp. I think I only missed a couple days, but the first week or so I had to lay off of the contact. They could put you in the walking cast though. I think that the doc took a little bit more precaution with me and put me on the crutches to heal faster in time for the season.

      Bla bla bla, all this Walleye talk is boring me to death.   The real opening day is this Saturday when the Muskie opener comes to Minnesota and the Big V.  I'll be out fishing with my son and grandson searching for some real fish.   The weather looks great, my baits are all sharpened and the new line is on all my rigs. Bucktails, Glittertails, spinnerbaits and minnow style cranks will make up most of our arsenal, however we will also be tossing a few topwaters looking for those Big green girls and not even talking about Walleye fishing.   Have a great weekend everybody!   "Ace" "It's just fishing man"

      5/29/17 Fishing report from Flag Island Resort NW Angle, Lake of the Woods   Happy Memorial Day!   The past week has brought some variation in weather including sunshine, wind and rain. Overall fishing has been good.  The bug hatches have started with the fish flies having some impact on the fishing but, anglers are still consistently getting limits.   On the Minnesota side, the walleye, sauger, pike and perch bite continues. The magic depths have been between 7-13 feet in the mud and 16-26 feet on rocks. The Flag Island Flats are starting to heat up. Other hot locations include points and near shore reefs. Just the same as last week all tactics have had their day. Jigging, raps and spinners have all been producing once you find what is working. The water temp is around 58 degrees.   Over in Ontario anglers are still catching a nice mixed bag of walleye, sauger, crappie, perch, pike and smallmouth bass. The crappies are moving shallower getting ready to spawn. Some depths according to their species are as follows; Smallmouth bass 2-8 feet, Walleyes 20-24 feet and Sauger 26-30 feet. Points, reefs, humps, areas with current, rock piles and inside turns have all worked when looking for locations. A jig or spinner with a minnow or crawler has worked best. The hot colors have been gold, pink and orange.   Until next week, good luck fishing! Guides, Dan Schmidt, Jeremy Glessing and Cale Albers Flag Island Resort 218-223-8011

      Sunday, different lake, different observations. I saw a few beds, but there were not any fish on them. I caught about two dozen gills and only one was female.

      I am ready to fish now that turkey season is done for my nephew

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.
