I just got a call from my doctor with news I didn't want to hear. I'm glad to find out why I've been having bad headaches for the past couple of months but it means no shooting for now. I had an MRI done today at my own request and found out that I have a chronic subdural hematoma which is an accumulation of blood around the outside of the brain caused by leakage in a blood vessel. I've been on Coumadin for years and this time it's slowed me down. I don't wind up going into the hospital today as long as my symptoms don't get worse for now. I knew when I got a call from the M.D. only an hour or two after the MRI that something was up. Common sense tells me not to let loose a few 35 Whelens or 300 RUMs until I get permission. I hope this isn't long term. Maybe I can hunt from the ground with a crossbow? Next week will find out more. Your thoughts and prayers would be appreciated. This may not belong in the shooting forum but I post here more than anywhere else and know more of the regulars here. Thanks for listening to my "Whining".

Sorry to hear about that Whelen Man. I would certainly keep shooting if you are able at all. I would go after squirrels with a .22 and get a good .223 with a premium bullet for deer-it will work.

Good luck and God Speed. Plateau Hunter

Have to say, sounds like you're lucky that it was caught! Damage to the blood vessels around the brain is nothing to take lightly. Hope you pull through okay.

I think this may be a good excuse to hunt for a nice 243 for hunting. Most everything I've got is big boomers. I've got a 22-250 and a 223 but I don't think I want to try a 22 caliber for deer. Maybe a heavy or braked 7/08 might fill the ticket. I may need to do some trading if the wife will let me go. I can just see me in one of the club's two man stands with her sitting there fidgiting beside me. Like that'd work. I'll ask a lot more questions of the doc in the coming week about when and what I'll be allowed to do and what I can sneak and do. Thanks for everyone's help.
