Hi all. Haven?t posted lately due to a serious health issue. 3 days after I returned home from my Missouri hunt I went in for a stress test that was scheduled weeks earlier as I have been tiring easily and have had increased BP. I failed the test in dramatic fashion and the follow up catheterization revealed several coronary blockages. Next thing I know I am in an ambulance headed for Hershey Medical center. I had a 6 1/2 hour, quad bypass surgery the day after Thanksgiving. Fortunately I am recovering well and have no permanent damage. Never had a heart attack. Dr says I should be 100% after recovery. I am very blessed and just happy to be here. Missed my first ever PA gun season since I started hunting in 1971 but hopefully I will be here for next season. Will be rehabbing for the next couple months but hope to be shooting again by spring.

Sorry to hear this but happy you caught it before problems got worse.
Good luck and wish you a speedy recovery. You might be able to shame some
of your hunting buddies into bringing over some venison until you can recoup.
HAH
Glad your okay.

Mike

billa, you got a reprieve on life. Use the rest of it to make sure you follow your doc's recommendations and live smart and healthy. Best of luck.
I missed my only buck season after getting shot. It's a heartbreak, but not the end of the world.
Best of luck.

Sorry to hear of that but the good news is that you are on the mend. There is always next season and possibly do some kind of spring exotic hunt

Glad you are on the mend. Take it easy. Next season will be here before you know it.
