Thread: First trip out since the crash.........

  1. #1

    First trip out since the crash.........

    Went out for the first time since the accident with foxdropper and Yokel Matt,I was lamping as the collar bone still wouldn't take a nights shooting,we got out of the truck and I saw a fox run up the banking as we pulled so when Matt was ready he got the rifle up on the sticks and I flicked the lamp on.She was still there sat watching us at the top of the banking,but,as the crack went off so did the Fox a clean miss!! Not a good start to be honest,so after a bit of ribbing we trecked up the Market garden which is the side of a valley and is very muddy at the moment so the boots were clogging very quickly so it was(for me anyway)a bit hard work.We done the gardens without seeing a fox,although we did see 6 Roe and a Munty doe which was nice.We then dropped down over to a sheep farm that I keep an eye on,and after a quick call a Vixen came storming down from the far side of the valley and straight in to Dropper(they take in turns)down on his bipod and at only 60mtrs it should of been and was a forgone conclusion,one in the bag.Great....I hear you say,but there was a problem,my thigh which has been numb ever since the accident started to get red hot and the pain I was getting was absolutely unbearable,so back to the truck which took a lot longer than it should,and we had a bit of a chat?craic,and then I said to go round again without me and I stayed in the truck.I was absolutely gutted as I wasn't expecting to have any trouble with the thigh at all,and I am going to have to pay for a Physio to try to sort it out,I am getting really pi55ed off with it all now especially as it is eleven weeks today since the accident and it is still feckin' me up,I am not very patient you see! Anyway,here is the Vixen that most probably took 14 hens last week from a smallholder next to the sheep fields............

    Mate, nice to see you have gotten out. If only for a short time.

    Good luck with the recovery

    Well done - hope your leg gets better soon. Having been through a major motor-racing accident some years ago (they reckoned that if I hadn't been wearing my back-protector, I'd have split in two...), I'd suggest that you're doing the right thing in getting out and giving yourself some good exercise. The pain in your leg may just be scar tissue breaking up, or it might be misaligned tissues simply realigning themselves. I'd say that you should speak to your GP, but as very few have any significant muscular-skeletal experience, I'd suggest that you see a sports injury specialist - or else you'll just be given a packet of tablets and told to come back in two weeks...

    Not sure what happened with that fox mate don't think my mumbled excuses about cleaning the barrel were that good either Great to be out with you again though mate despite showing myself up again Don't you worry about that leg mate - its the first steps back to recovery and you can't expect to be slot back into it, especially with all the hills round there. It'll all come back together soon enough to be sure and you'll be back to throwing yourself over gates and snagging your nuts on barbed wire fences in no time............



    Speak soon mate

    I've got enough tablets already Paddy,and I have rung up a Chartered Physiotherapist that used to look after the Bath Rugby players,I have seen before for a back problem and she is very good and also very busy so it will be a bit of a wait but hopefully worth it.
