Fall brings with it something for everyone in the field from the angler to the hunter.  Just a few recent sessions of shooting the bull tell me that autumn is for the youngest of outdoorsman just learning the games to those of us more seasoned with our eyes focused dead ahead on for example, the whitetail rut.

Turkeys, Hips and Grading the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Packer Grader

Three weeks ago today I was on the cutting table for the hip replacement.  This week I have discarded the cane except for outdoor use, one week after discarding the walker.  Pain is minimal and I stopped using all drugs including Vicodin and Oxycontin two nights ago. Perhaps we will transition to the cabin whiskey…and then try to do those stair exercises.

Not really.  And don’t try that at home. Unless you’re alone or with someone.

I do have a nasty cold so they placed me on an antibiotic as a precaution.  Infection is cause for alarm in early joint replacement patients.

Received my spring turkey permit for Zone 1 and expect to hunt the southwest hill country with no pain. That’s enough today. We did kick off the first annual grading of Milwaukee Journal Sentinel football writer Bob McGinn’s grading of the Green Bay Packers.  Tap in to John Ellis’s grading of McGinn’s grading under “Outdoor News” on this website.

Look for the usual postings on this website under Fishing Reports, Inland Fishing, Outdoor News, Ice Fishing, Firearms and anywhere else you wish to roam.  Thanks for connecting with On Wisconsin Outdoors in print and online.

Shoot straight.
