    well tore my rotator cuff at work, so much for trying to get a spring gobbler with my bow this year:whinging:

    Good thing is it's not my shooting shoulder so I can still go out and wack one with the 835:sniper:

    Take care of the shoulder, don't take any unnecessary risks & be careful. You don't want to make it any worse than it already is...

    Chairman is right. It is a slow healing process. Take very good care of it and you will be ready for fall. Sorry to hear about it. I had the shoulder surgery and rushed it. I slowed back down quick.

    take it easy there and do what the Docs say and they will have you better than new.
    the old man tore his out two summers ago it was a struggle for him to relax much but he missed out on fishing and most of the summer farm work but he was elk hunting in the fall and hes better now than ever except for working above his head and thats not possible any more his was from years and years of running a dozer and finally a horse kicked his butt and finished it off

    he says now if he knew how much better it would be he would have had it done sooner

    you'll be better than new before long to i am sure

    This is what my doc told me about putting it off:

    You can put it off (surgery) for about a year, then it needs to be fixed. If you tear it more, or possibly a complete separation, you won't get 100% use of it back, no matter what you do...

    I scheduled surgery, right then & there...

    After meeting my physical therapist, I found out that he was a hunter. When I told him about my concern of hunting that year, he had me work out with my crossbow, so I'd work the muscles needed for hunting. :D
