Maybe , just maybe, the prognosis won't be all that bad! Take it easy and heal up soon. Hopefully, your season isn't blown away completely.

Glad that's all it was. Still a very scarey fall. Like the other guys said go ground blind for bears.

Just look at Ralph and you could be in a head brace like he was praying for a full recovery.

Bummer!!! I know what that's like. Happened to me last OCT--dislocation. I still have problems with it!!!! Hoefully you can at least get into some blinds for deer season.

Thanks to all for the support, I left the the doc's office and he said the xray's looked like as he said ( the knee looks like a engine that has ran out of oil). I have a appointment on the 26 aug with the surgern. My hunting group leaves on the 23 aug. I am checking to see if the guide will move my desposit for next year, instead of losing it.

That will teach you to wait until after hunting season to do all those chores around the house!!

We both hunt so I have no problem doing all that stuff in the spring instead of now—but, now that you mention it, there is a nice big deer in the back and if he was out of commission I would have a clear shot at him . . . hmmm . . . thanks for the idea!!

Seriously, I have bent my knee backwards and it is no fun. Here's hoping you heal fast and the pain pills work. I know it is tough to miss even part of a season. Just keep thinking about how big everything will be after having another year to grow!!

That was a long fall!! Better your knee than your back but it's still a bummer. Hopefully they can straighten you out fairly quickly and get you back in the woods
