Poor me...

6 posts in this topic

I just had to whine since it looks like I'm going to have to miss my first deer opener since the age of eleven.

I was luck enough to live through a serious skin infection on my leg which plopped me in the emergency room and intensive care for 4 days when I went into toxic shock. Thats the good news that I'm thankful for, but the hunter in me is going crazy since I'll be limited to elevating my leg in a clean environment on opener. My goal is to be 100% by muzzleloader though.

Sorry to hear that Gorilla. Best of luck with your recovery. I am sure there will be a big buck left for Muzzy season grin.gif

my wife had a bad infection that got into her blood after our first kid was born. the doctor said just 20 years ago people died from stuff like that.

I would spend more time being thankful than sad, you can always get them in a few weeks with the smoke pole!

Hope you are feeling better.

Thanks guys, don't get me wrong though, I am very thankful to be able to hunt again.

I thinks the deer can sense my weakness, there were three of them 70 yards out the backdoor last night.

Good luck this weekend fellas...

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.

      Was the bad rotator cup cause from catching to many big fish?If that's the case I'll take one for the team

      Heck of a float today!  I released 22 and biggest was just over 19.  Lotta nice sized fish.  My friend was out for the first time on the river and just 2nd time in a yak and he had a ball. Ended up with 8 after he started using my stick baits and got the hang of it.  First time up on that stretch this year.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,
