Whoa!
You better follow the Dr's advice.

My son broke his foot, didnt listen.  Had surgery to pin it back together for heeling.
3 years later he still doesn't walk right and has a slight limp to his gait.

Good luck.

Season started rough with the broken bones and all, and continued to just be a struggle.  The long anticipated elk hunt with my little brother was an absolute grind. Rain, snow, bright moon, and big country proved us not worthy of a bull. Many close calls, and a missed bear of epic size, made for a frustrating hunt.  It would be a novel to try and break it down so the cliff notes go like this  :chuckle:

elevation, snow, elevation, sore foot, missed bear, elevation, lots of bulls, archery is dumb, elevation, bears are dumb, rebroken big toe, elevation, shot deer, sore foot, elevation

With two idaho deer tags in my pocket I had high Hope's of a couple solid bucks for 2019.  Right before the season started I had a buddy reach out to me about some meat. He had a rough year and was out. I always have a surplus so I told him no problem man, you know where the freezer is, just help yourself. Well no good deed goes unpunished and I got all but cleaned out. For the first time in a long time i was basically out of meat. Between that and being severely handicapped with this foot i suppressed my dreams of big bucks and filled one of my tags on a tasty meat buck that was a conveniently close packout to the truck.

As a meat hunter first I am very aware that all animals large and small are a true trophy but it didn't make me feel any better about killing a deer I didn't want to kill. I know it was more frustration at my friend and disappointment in myself for being injured than it was about my buck, but I still didn't feel great about how my season was shaking out. The silver lining was that I got to spend a week with my little brother and I got to share a harvest with him and we both got a top off on the ol freezers.

PS, when you open a fun size starburst and get two pinks you know its gonna be a good day :chuckle:

Hobbled you are still one of the best hunters I know pal.  Glad you are making memories and if you run short again call your local farm hookup.  It ain't mule deer but I got your pork and beef needs for those growing kids.

And Doc says stay off the foot.
