Count me in for one dog (one crabby little setter) and 4 birds. I may have another guy with a dog also. I'll try and nail it down here within a few weeks. If we are looking short of our goal as far as birds go you can count me in for a few more.

Hey Guys - I'm out...torn ACL, torn MCL and damaged Medial Meniscous. Stupid, stupid, stupid me...I had no business playing basketball. It is going to require surgery. I'm trying to get the procedure done as quickly as I can so my rehab time might be complete enough to get back out in the field by next spring. I can't tell you how disappointed I am. Anyone else go through this? How long did it take to recover? I feel bad for my pup...I was hoping to get him on a lot of birds this year. Maybe I could show up and Spinach, Setterguy or BDR could volunteer to take Buddy out and work him for me. Any thoughts?

If you were in the NFL you would be back in 2 weeks and listed as probable for next week.

I am sorry to hear that you will miss the event, let alone possibly miss the entire seasons of pheasant, waterfowl deer and golf.

I will volunteer to play twice as much golf and hunt twice as much to make up for you missing out. grin.gif

I'm sure you be able to get out for some fall eye fishing on the big pond.

I was thinking Me and my Brother Jeremy could help you with Buddy so he doesnt lose out too. After all the hard work Buddy does hunt good with Macey.

I will not be bringing a guest. It will be just me and Luci. I saw on an earlier post that you had me down for a guest. I'll take six pheasants all together though. Maybe three in the morning and three in the afternoon. I'm also in for lunch. If I can help or bring anything let me know. Tim 612-414-7952

Sorry to hear about your misfortune WW. Makes me scared to get out on the court. Its been a while.

Put me down for 6 instead of 4 pheasants please.

gspman maybe I can volunteer my wife to watch your little hummers. I'll check with her. We often have lots of little kids running around and it would be no problem. Let me know. Maybe we can work something out.

I'm jealous. This sounds like it'll be an absolute riot and unfortunately I'm not likely to be able to participate. The missus is out of town on Oct. 2 so I'm trying to line up a sitter but it doesn't look good. I will definitely sign up if a sitter is procured. Have fun and be safe.

My surgery is scheduled for September 14th...don't think two weeks will give me enough time to get out in the field to participate in the hunt...but I will be there...even if I'm in a full body cast laying in the back bed of Spinach's truck.

Esoxman - how long did it take to get back on your feet? When you say your knee is still not 100% what do you mean...pain, range of motion, stiffness? What exactly did they do and how old are you. My ACL is gone, the Medial Meniscous has a tear and the MCL is torn. It happened two weeks ago and I am doing fine now. The knee is stiff but I am not in any pain. I am doing stretching and strength exercises everyday to get prepared for the post-op rehab. Would you have done the surgery knowing what you know now?

Kpj5br - I'm sure someone in the group would be happy to have you join in the fun...especially if you are generous enough to buy some extra birds for the group.

Well they did acl thermal shrinkage, also tried to fix a tracking problem, removed cartalage, and smothed out my knee cap. I was on crutches for about a month. I still have the tracking prob, and there is still alot of stiffness. I am 29. yes i would still have it done. i just have different pains now. but havent had it cause me to go down yet. The doc said i have the knee of a 60 year old. so i got that going for me. smile.gif

Flashman

Wild Willie,

I had my acl replaced a couple years ago now. I had it done in aprill an I was canoeing in the BWCA at the end of May. All I can say is do your exercise they give you, stretch it out, it will hurt but you have to do it. I was at the gym on an eliptical running machine two weeks after the procedure, 3 weeks out I was doing a little bit of jogging. I don't normally run just for fun but I need to strengthen the leg. If you keep up with the rehab and stretching you'll be fine, if you don't do the stretching you will take a long time to get back to "normal"

During my rehab I saw people that had the same surgury make little or no progress. I wanted to get back on my feet and get out in the field. work at it and you'll be fine.

Esoxmn and Flashman - thanks for your input. Sounds like Flashman's situation is not unlike mine. Your recovery sounds as I have it envisioned. I am going to work like heck to get up and out in the field by six weeks. My surgery is Sept 14th so that gets me and Buddy out chasing birds by the end of October or the first week of November.

Esoxmn...sorry to hear about your situation. Sounds like you have the right attitude and who knows what advances will be made in the future regarding corrective and replacement knee surgery. Just got to keep a positive attitude and keep on going.

Wild Willie,

I did the ACL, MCL, Meniscus trifecta in college. I zigged whe I shoulda zagged. The surgery isn't too bad. I had the Vikings doctor do mine. I was walking pretty good in 4 weeks. It took me about a year to feel normal again. Tylenol 3 was a plus to the whole experience. Have the doctors size you up for a good athletic brace and you should be o.k. for hunting later in the fall.

This will be my pointers second hunting season I can hardly wait. Wild Willie or Spinach also sign me up for the lunch and let me know if there is anything I should bring. Adam

ATM, that's very nice of you, thanks.

I'm more than willing to buy extra birds.

What I'm thinking is I bring myself and guest, and buy 10 birds.

Anyone willing to pair up with my guest?

Thanks

Snags - thanks for the words of encouragement. Kicker is that I am now working hard to get back in shape just in time for post surgery rehab. I'm working on flexibility, strength and cardio now. Surgeon said the stronger I am before the procedure the better. I have let myself go for about 15 years so it feels good to get back in the gym and to get back in shape. Maybe this little knee thing is a blessing in disguise. Oh well can't wait to get this situation behind me and to get back out in the field.

Quick question:

My guest is coming in from out of state. Because this is on a private preserve, does he need to have out of state licensing?

Thanks

    • whateverisbiting
      I will be going to my cabin a couple hours drive.  I will bring all my food and gas with me and not go to any stores there.  If I still have to work from home I may work there self quarantine for 14 days.  Then you become a local.  Then you have to do the same thing coming back home if going out to stores there.  Small towns have few hospitals and very limited equipment.  That is a real concern.  But hopefully will not blow up with very low population density.  Can't wait to put the dock in, have a G&T, and put out the lighted bobber!

      Thankful for my faith in God, my great wife, I have 3 nieces and a nephew do not see them too much. Be thankful for family all of you. I don't have hardly any family left but really enjoy those nieces and nephew when I see them. Thankful for the guys and gals on this site. I have learned lip reading even more and that is a huge help for me right now. I'm also thankful for my  Yamaha boat motor best thing I ever bought😀 Thankful my wife loves to fish and comes with anytime she can. She is laid off now but boy do I love being with her. I work second shift Mon-Thursday she works during the week and every weekend it feels like a second honey moon!

      I am grateful to have my faith in God, without my faith life's trials would be much more difficult to navigate.   I am grateful for my family, they are source of a great deal of strength.  There is nothing like raising my 2 favorite people on earth everyday.  I screw up alot, they have always given me a reason to keep going forward.  My wife is the most amazing woman in my life.  She has to be great, to deal with me everyday. Grateful for my father and my sister, we have always had a close family, but going through my mother's battle and ultimate death from cancer this last year, I know it would have been next to impossible to deal with without them.  I can't wait for this virus to leave so I can give both of them a huge hug again.   I am grateful for the gifts of my life's journey, the great moments and the bad, everyday is great day, we get so few.

      Well I got out the last three days and I need a vacation from myouting lol. Friday we fished am for tulibee and ended up with 19 before switching in the afternoon for crappies. Found a deep hole and the slabs were STACKED UP!!! Hole was 30-36 feet and fish were 18-bottom. Had to drill a ton of holes and stay mobile. Literally you'd have fish in one hole and 5 feet away nothing. Average size was 12 inches with a few 14s.  Saturday tried for tulibee again and I think we got 10 for 7 of us. Switched to the same crappie hole and first 5 fish up the hole were tulibee lol. After a while we found crappies but just couldn't find them. Switched to 4 or 5 other spots then we finally found them. Thought were perch because bottom 5 feet were solid fish. Crappies were averaging 11 inch. Had to stay mobile and drill a lot of holes. kept enough for a supper.  Sunday morning my buddy and I went after big tulibee and got a late start (9 am start). We started by targeting spots people hadn't been lately. Instantly we had 3 on the ice. It was weird they were coming out of the mud. After hour half we quit graphing them so took off for new spots. We ended up with 4 fish biggest two were 4 lbs 4 oz and 3 lbs 12 oz. After that we took off for crappies again. We parked the ranger and guess fish wanted to hide under it. Literally had 10 holes drilled with 10 feet of the ranger and we just kept circling the ranger. We did film a YouTube vide and hopefully the wind wasn't too strong for the audio.    Sadly I doubt I will make it back out again.

      Mine is my wife and our 5 kids (youngest is 29). All are independent and have given us 7 grandkids who are a hoot. Not to mention all of my great friends. I'm only 60 but I've gotten in a massive amount of fishing and hunting since I was 5. Feel sorry for the guys who did nothing but work most of their life thinking they would have their fun at retirement. Doesn't usually work out. I tried to balance work, family and adventure. If I died now I lived a full life but wanna see the kids/grandkids grow up. Their old enough now to have fun with and my days of having to dig a new outhouse hole are over. My son is a huge help now.

      For me it's family, friends and faith.  My health has been good and I'm currently working through some things health wise.  But I'm positive and have found more support and care than I could have imagined.  For that, I truly felt blessed.   I'm lucky to have a wife who loves me even with my short comings.  Again, I'm a very lucky man.  I have 6 granddaughters who love to hug and talk to papa.  Makes me smile even now as I type this.  My 3 adult children are doing well and actually call the old man for advise and like to hang out with me which I really enjoy.  My folks are on their way home from south TX.  We got to visit and fish with them there this winter.  I feel fortunate to be able to do things with them yet.  Finally getting out to fish and hunt with all of these freinds and family are what really make me feel like one fortunate guy.
