Default Hunting Postponed

Sure hated the timing on this, but I would rather have a bum knee fixed sooner than later. Had surgery on my right knee this morning to repair a torn miniscus, and the doc found I had damaged my knee a lot more than either of us expected. Right knee is all bandaged up and propped up on two pillows. Will have to see how things go over the next week or so . . .

At least the regular season doesn't end until the first weekend in January, and we have an extended season (antlerless & spike) for another two weeks after that. I still have time . . .

I have had the same thing in my knee for a few months (like 5). I am now just going to wait until after the season is over. It hurts like hell and I am sure I am doing more harm than good, but I don't want to miss the season.

just remember it is better to miss one season then all of them
wish I had done more about my shoulder but did not want to miss bow season so I just worked through it & two years later it still bothers me sometimes it just locks up & I cant draw my bow back
really stinks when that deer comes out & watches you for 5 minutes laughing while you try to draw back on him (happened at least 6 times this year) so take it easy & recover properly & I hope it is speedy
Remember when posting what may seem innocent to you may not to others,
text shows NO emotions so please,,, don't take it personal & automatically go on the defense.
Take it w/ a grain of salt, take it as a joke or just let it go.
