"Intro / 69 buck tag"

Sorry itís long.
My brother in law aka onelegwonder introduced me to this site. Hereís my story. Iíve been putting in for controlled hunts in Idaho since 2000 and never drawn a single tag.
Well at the beginning of the year I was having all these weird numbness issues on different parts of my body and left leg not working type stuff. Long story short I had some significant actual spinal cord issues and not just disc issues. Iíve had 2 major operations and one of those included a surgery that required cutting me from about spine to under my armpit along the ribs and collapse a lung etc.
Anyway knowing this in advance I put in for hunts I wouldnít draw like the late 69 buck hunt.
The night after my big surgery I found out the draw results finally came out. Hours before I told my wife that I think Iím going to draw this deer tag and then we laughed. Anyway later I was drugged as hell and could only use my left hand and had difficulty entering my license number. Took 30 minutes no lie. Well I couldnít believe my eyes but I drew the tag of a lifetime for me!!!
It honestly has been one of a few things helping me get through pure hell. Iíve had a lot of setbacks and complications and just last week had my weight restriction lifted from 10 to 50 lbs. Then today I found out Iíll probably need a 3rd surgery because my left leg isnít working well again.
Iím not looking for sympathy but merely sharing my story. I have been telling people that even though itís been a miserable year that I plan on finishing in style with a big buck even though my physical issues may make it difficult.
So I will keep people updated as I go and hopefully we can celebrate my deer!!

Your perseverance is awesome! I tip my hat to you sir and wish I had some knowledge of the unit and the hunt to share with you. I really hope someone on here can step up and help you out. It sounds like you've got the mindset of a warrior, good luck on your hunt my friend and godspeed!

Thank you for the kind words.
My big concern is this is a tag of a lifetime. Odds are I wonít ever draw again. I really want to do this tag and hunt the service it deserves but unfortunately physically I will only be able to do my best. I pray that we will have optimal weather, hot rut, good friends to help with physical aspect, and find a bruiser with a bunch of does.
Iíve hunted 69 general season for several years and by no means an expert on the area. In fact to be honest Iím a lousy hunter. Some people are naturally talented at certain things but thatís not the case for me and hunting. Doesnít mean I donít love it, just it is what it is.
Recently when Iíve been able to get on some buttes with the help of a sidebyside and onelegwonder, at that moment in time that Iím glassing and watching some muleyís, it makes me feel normal again.
I hope others have a lot of success with their hunts and we get to read the reports!!
