So just got back from the doc.  He ordered up xrays which I got those done today to.  He is pretty confident that I tore my meniscus.  Just not sure how bad.  Still going out this weekend.

That sucks Russ.


Haven't even started this years preparations. Been averaging 75 hours a week since I got back from AZ in July and don't know when I will get laid off :tup:.

Ive had that fixed.  I could still hunt but was just slower getting up and down the mountain.  Flat land didn't give me too many problems.  Takes about a month to get full strength back in the knee after surgery.

Had my right knee done 3 years ago during this time.  Was out late season.

Russ - if you're hunting locally just reach out if you need help with a packout.  I'll be home this weekend.  Don't bust up a bad knee any worse than it is man!

Thanks. I changed directions.  I am not going out this weekend.  Helping out with comms on the Norse Peak, American and Sawmill fires.
