my diabetes has got the best of me this year and my legs are to weak to get around and be safe and i dont mind telling yall i sure have missed it. I cant see taking the 4 wheeler and maybe killing a deer to have someone else gut it and haul it out for me. Anybody else thats hunted for over 40yrs give up on it?

Not yet here either. Gave Dad an off-road walker for Christmas last year and it has increased his time in the field greatly (88 y/o and diabetic).

i have hauled, cleaned, and processed COUNTLESS deer for my boys. hopefully someday they will return the favor. i just find my drive to kill waning in recent years, and though i still love to hunt, i rarely kill a deer anymore. i fear that someday i wont have any desire to hunt, and that kind of scares me!!!

I have some places in Franklin county we can go. Or let me know when your hunting and I'll make myself available to help you with your animal(s) after you get one! No problem at all. That's what this forum is all about!

So sorry you are having to make such a decision. At 70 with diabetic issues I am dreading having to deal with complications down the road. Hunting and fishing is my passion and not being able do so may be unbearable. I pray you can find rewarding alternatives. As noted above i have dragged, gutted and butchered many a deer for a lot of family and friends hope they see fit to give me an extension. God bless you brother!!!!!!!!

I know it is. I saw my uncle go through it and it was tough. The offer stands though!

'Hope it is not your last year, but I admire you for facing reality, being wise and safe about it, and not being so stubborn that it causes grief (figuratively and maybe literally) for friends and family, as some proud men do. If we live long enough, we will all face decisions like this, diabetic or not. Looks like you have some good guys on here to help, if you want to at least get out and about. All the best to you.

Thatís the way I look at it, Iíll never be able to repay my dad for all he has done for me. Since he taught me to gut a deer Iíve done my best to make sure he doesnít have to do much more than pull the trigger.
