Yes he lives
« on: October 17, 2009, 04:44:24 AM »
I just wanted to stop by and check in with everybody and apologize for not being by much and reintroduce myself. Life has thrown myself and the Wild Extremes TV , staff and crew a few hard knocks this season; but we shall over come them. I for one lost the sight in my right eye and had to have a corneal transplant and am dealing with that. Hope everyone here is doing great and their season is going well. After over a year of dealing with the eye, Doc has finally agreed to let me hunt again next week...... Hopefully I'll have a few one-eyed tales to tell you all. "God Bless" you all and remember you don't miss what you have till it's gone.....be safe my friends O0

Hey, it's sure great to see ya back, Rick!  O0

That's sure sad news about your eye, but it's great news you are on the mend. You have a bandage over one eye and still hunting, huh? That sure can't be easy. I hope it's not your shooting eye that's messed up.

Welcome back Rick!  O0

No offense, but I liked you other avatar better. ^-^ ;D ;D

So what was the deal with the eye?  Medical reasons or did you hurt it some way?  Bummer if that was your shooting eye.

But, look on the bright side of things, at least you're still kicking and you still have your left eye to enjoy the wonders that God has given us. O0

Don't be such a stranger around here.  We need others with just as warped sense of humor as the rest of us have. O0

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

Thanks everyone, yes it was an accident that caused theproblen and no not my shooting eye however. I'm a leftie for compound but a rightie for Trad shooting.  It does effect my depth perception and at dusk makes for hard viewing. If you ever want to see what it's like just wear a pirates patch over your non-dominat eye and try shooting. So take care of what "God" gave you it's a bitch when you loose it. Doc has great hopes that all will heal in time; however patience isn't one of my better virtues. After over a year it's getting on my nerves but still feel blessed for what I do have. Besides if I miss a Big Buck I can always blame it on the eye...... :crazy2

Thanks again for the kind words and Monday looks like the first day I'll be out. update to come.....
