I know here in Nova scotia some people can get special permits that allows you to hunt from a vechicle. Now i am not sure of all the details but maybe there are programs like that where you are from. Hope fully you can get out, good luck.

I admire your spirit, but if I was your dad, I'd break you're other leg if tried to go out and hunt with a plate and screws in your leg.

Seriously, talk to your doctor first. He may say you'll be fine to got out and sit in a chair, but for God's sake, don't try to climb up into a stand. If you fell, you could break that plate loose and sever a major artery. The last thing you want to do is get injured again.

Again, I admire your spirit, but be smart about it. Thumbs up

I wrecked my dirt bike 3 years ago. Broke my lower leg and blew my knee completely out. Major surgurey. I would walk in on crutches and have my friends carry my gun.. I ended up shooting a 130 class four point whitetail.

leg injury

Landed on a saddle horn and seperated my pelvis years ago. Steel plate still holds me together. I hunted on crutches that year and filled my tags. Couple years later, just befor deer season, they took cartiledge out of my left knee and walking was a tuff thing. That time I had a $1000 brace and hunted anyway, filled tags again. Three years ago durning hunting season, I tore my roto-cuff in my left shoulder. That stopped me! But as I think back, I was dating a short girl and probally would have been alright had a placed a sand bag on her head! Big smile Sometimes ya just gotta do what ya gotta do!

Just to make things clear when I say four point I mean four on the left and four on the right. I was always confused when some guys would say eight and ten pointers.
