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.

KPJ5br, I will be there with my pointer and would definately pair up with you. I missed the last hunt but it sounded like a blast. I am signed up for 5 birds. 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.

It looks like Ill have it off, but nothing is for sure. It would be just me and my dog. 6 or 7 birds will do. Let me know, if you can work it out. Thanks, Justan

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

      Now is there a locomotive somewhere in the lake to find?

      I had a pizza when the new folks took over, and it was not good. However, most everything that I have had since then has been really good. I had the walleye tacos this weekend and the weekend before that had the italian beef sandwich. My general sense has been to stick with burgers and sandwiches. They did badly overcook my brother's walleye sandwich and fries the other weekend, but it was a busy night so I get that it happens. They seem to have good crowds every night, so maybe kitchen staffing is an issue.   Last Sunday (a week ago) around noon there were only two girls working at Moosebirds with a line 10 people deep stretching out the door towards the street. My simple guess is that it's a struggle to find enough workers but that could be a naive assumption on my part.

      Sorry hit the wrong button.... For a place to stay on the Minnesota side of rainy your options are, Thunderbird lodge, Island View lodge or Sha Sha resort. All are 10 -12 miles east of Int’l Falls on Hwy 11. Another option is the new hotel in Rainer which is 3 mile east... I believe it’s called the Cantilever Hotel. Each has positives depending on what you’re looking for...   As for fishing...the walleyes are starting to transition to deep water. I went out for an hour Saturday evening and caught 2...the largest being 25”( in the picture) My wife and I were out from noon to 5 on Sunday (yesterday). We were fishing jig and minnows. Caught 18 walleys; 5 in the slot 14-16”, 1-18 1/2” all the rest 13” or smaller. Did a lot of running around to find active fish. Caught fish in 20’ and saw a lot of mayfly caucuses floating in the water still and a lot of minnows. Water surface temperature was 78 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s only going to get better...

      While the grandkids were here we got pizza from the landing.    Good thing we got two for the four of us.  Their 12 inch pizzas were about 8 or maybe 9 inches.   And over baked on top of that.   Pushing 20 bucks each.    I hope the rest of the menu isn't as disappointing as those pizzas.

      If you found it again, with the warm water it would be easy to check out with a mask and flippers.  relatively shallow, close to shore.
