Bob, I don't know what health issues you have but I have a few myself. I can barely walk 200 yards and I'm going on my second African Safari in July at the age of 74. That trip is my 75 Birthday present. Don't count yourself out because you aren't a spry "young buck" anymore. What kind of hunting did you do in your younger years?
Welcome to AH.
Thanks for your communication. I completely understand your message.
Deer hunting in my home state, WV.
Got a blackie in Ontario, a 5x5 elk in Colorado (hunting alone, several times)
and boy was that a fiasco getting him out of the woods. I had a hip replacement 4 months prior and will never fully recover from it (had a different surgery on the hip a year before that). Got a smallish brownie 3 years ago in Alaska. Pulled the trigger on it on the only chance I had durying the 7th day of an 8 day hunt.
In closing I must say I'm proud of what you are doing.
Nothing but the best wishes for you, Bob
