    Biff; I am sure gonna try. My plan for this year is to shoot the entire state shoot and camp all week. If it works out you can have a place to stay. My other goal is to go to the Missouri Fall Handicap. Good lord willin!!! DON

    Get better really quick ...

    I hope you got a second opinion ... I was told I needed surgery on my knee many years ago and then I got a second opinion and this Doctor told me the same exact thing so I kept on getting more opinons until I found a Doctor who told me what I wanted to hear and that was that I could put it off ... I'm telling you 132 opinions is better than one or two anytime but the more I think about it the more I think the first guy was right and maybe the second guy also ... Good Luck ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    If you would like I would be happy to shoot for you until you recover ... all you need to do is ask and supply me with the ammo, fee's and travel expenses but I will only do it for you until you are fully recovered and able to shoot again.

    good luck

    dont underestimate the need for therapy and conditioning after-- if you can swim or even if you cant- you should consider trying the water and learning- its a great therapy
