    Well guys, this morning was officially my last day of the year hunting. About a month ago, I tore my ACL, MCL, and meniscus playing basketball so tomorrow I get surgery to repair those torn ligaments.
    With that being said, I'm going to have a lot of time on my hands starting tomorrow to just sit around and rehab. I'm going to make it through the rest of the bowhunt or die episodes I haven't watched yet pretty quickly, so what do you guys suggest me to watch? I don't got homework to do, my semester just ended. I could watch bowhunting for days, so let me know what you guys think! Any good must-see hunting movies or just movies in general that an outdoorsman would enjoy?
    Already can't wait for next year

    I'm kinda in the same boat I had bad accident and now I go into surgery Jan 5th for a 2 level spinal fusion in my neck there removing 4 discs putting in titanium plates and cages in. So I'm going to be layed up for awhile I mean awhile I think I'm going to just watch all the hunting vids I can lol I did have a few accessories that were broke like a qad hdx and a couple sights so I called yesterday for warranty and I'm going to send them out the day before my surgery since I'll have time lol I don't know what else to do being layed up for 16 weeks is going to kill me I won't even be able to shoot my bows for months afterwards so I'm going to try my best to recover so I'm able to hunt next season I'm going to fallow this being in the same boat.

    Hey buckeyejay I just had a triple disc neck fusion c5,6 and 7. About three months ago. Been out of work since. I was operated on by 2 neurosurgeons. They told me it was about a 3hr. operation. and they said when i awoke all my pain would be gone. Going into the O.R. I checked the time ….7am ……. When I next opened my eyes it was 6:30. For a couple min. I couldn't get it. It was 6:30 at night. They told me it was much worse than they thought. They had to scrape calcium deposits off my dura which is the covering over your spinal cord. Well here i am not doin so well. Sorry to be a downer but just wanted to tell my experience. there's a lot more to the story. Pm me or if you want we can talk on the phone.

    When I had surgery last year I was in the hospital for 9 days afterward and layed up for ahwile after, I binge watched Heartland Bowhunter on Carbon TV and loved it. Those guys are the real deal and they have some awesome footage.

    Carbon TV is pretty good. Some shows are much better than others, but half the fun is sorting through the tripe.
    To all you guys looking at long term rehab; please keep busy. My old man retired about 4 years ago, and since then has had one major health issue after another and mentally it's taking worse of a toll than physically. He didn't take my advice and it's really been grinding him down. Something recently happened to where he has seen the light and things are looking up but it's been a rough road. I told him he can't just sit on his butt and watch OLN and the NFL network all day.

    Yeah I'm definitely gonna listen to everything I'm told to do for rehab. I'm going to miss track season for sure this spring, but got a lot of time to fully recover well for cross country and hunting next fall! And I wouldn't mind a decent break to watch some good sports games and hunting shows. Definitely not rushing myself back just to get hurt again. I'll check out carbon tv thanks

    I had my first ACL/Meniscus repair Oct 2012 and just had the second Feb 2016, so I feel for you on this one, it is not a fun surgery or recovery, so if you need any advice let me know. You will be back on your feet and very busy with the rehab for the first couple of months after a few weeks. I will say that if you think you have done enough in terms of stretching, rehab, etc, you haven't done enough yet. Ice every second you can, stretch as much as you can tolerate, and when they tell you to put something under your heel to keep your leg straight to get full extension again, it will hurt like a b**** but do it anytime you're laying down you won't regret it.

    I spent a lot of time watching any hunting tv show that were on, BHOD, Carbon TV, vimeo, and surprisingly youtube you can find a lot of good content if you look, especially if you like more than just bowhunting.

    Hope this helps.

    If you do get Netflix... They have a few seasons of Meat Eater on there and I think that's a pretty good hunting show

    Yeah It definitely does hurt trying to keep my leg extended, you're right! But okay, awesome. Thank you, I'll check out YouTube as well. I looked a lot of outdoorsman on there and shows that are on YouTube and there are a ton! Thanks and I hope you're doing well right now too, two knee surgeries now! Wow!
