    Oh Pooh

    Got home from a&e after a bit of a slip yesterday. Minor medial colatteral ligament tear with some bone bruising.
    Brilliant timing both for roar and work.
    Got a steel lined brace to stableise the knee but another appointment next week to fully assess things once the swellings gone down.
    Has anyone else had the same injury and how long till your good to go again.
    Ive a heli hunt booked with two mates for the 2nd week of April and really dont want to end up their camp mother and kitchen bitch.

    Not good !!
    Still say go on trip - if it will not delay its healing etc
    Being Camp Bitch - has its perks
    Still be part of the action etc - they will look after you as long as you can cook
    Good luck - Murphy moving around a bit this year I see

    Still better than working !

    Sorry to hear that you are injured for the roar.
    I had to sit out a few roars recently and then sort of over compensated for the 2 roars after that and got some nice red stags.
    Now this year its back to the reality of juggling hunting with the damaged body and earning money.

    Hope you get out there anyway and good luck.

    go n be camp bitch...wander over to viewing spot and shoot best stag of trip at 11:00 and cut its throat....then leave it for the others to retrieve when they get back...look after your body first n foremost,we dont heal as fast as we did when younger. listen to doctor 6 weeks now is better than 6 mths in 2 years time...daughter finding this out the hard way with something similar in her knee.kept playing sport for last 2 years carrying injury and now is in a lot of pain and full on cat scans , physio ,strapping blah de blah to try to fix it.

    At my (and Peter's) age we are tweaking bits and pieces all of the time. Unless its a major injury I use a knee brace and when hunting use anti inflammatory pills. Eventually the pain ball in my body that seems to travel around looking for new places to annoy me attaches itself somewhere else and that distracts me from the former injury. Its a never ending cycle.

    @Micky Duck did something similar 35 odd years ago, hunting in the Kawekas with two friends, weather was claggy and water on my glasses really pisses me off,so I decided to stay at camp. A hind walked into the clearing not 200 yards away so I shot her. Two very wet and empty handed hunters were a bit surprised. @Tahr Several years ago after his ankle op whilst still in the moon boot Peter got one of the biggest pigs hes caught in a long time had to wait quite a while for help to arrive dragging it out though, so Ive got some inspiration.
    Ive also dug up my copy of D Cowlans forest service cook book, being kitchen bitch might not be so bad after all!

    Lining up a camp oven and a list of provisions far more exotic than the usual back country fare. I would love to see the guys faces when they go through the shopping list and arrive at "edible panties" haha
