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.

      Shagawa in Ely has a public beach.  That's the closest to Bear Head that I know of.  You'd have to launch a ways across the lake but you could just motor over to it.

      Sorry for late response.  The Gander in Eden Prairie had quite a few...

      Catfishing is pretty stable right now. The water is getting very low making the north end of Grand Forks begin to get sketchy for travel.  The lack of current has the fish spread out also.  Stay on the move and when you land of fish you should have no trouble catching them.  The best areas have been anywhere you can find more current than the surrounding area.  The middle of the River in mid range holes has also been a good place to look. 
        Bait has changed for me this week with frogs being the hands down number one so far.  Sucker and goldeye have been working too.  I still believe getting bait in front of the fish is is the key more than what the bait is but try it all.   Remember the I-29 Catfish Classic is in just 2 weeks.

      Made it out last night. Beautiful night. Caught a bunch of Crappies, sunnies, a norsky and a few walleyes. All CR. Amazing how quiet the lake was. I was the only boat out for the most part. First boat in parking lot at 5:30 and no AI inspector this time. Have not seen them for quite awhile now.... Water temp was 78. Panfish were caught on simple Jig/plastic in about 12 feet along shoreline weeds. Walleyes on spinner/crawlers in 17-20 on midlake structure.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.
