TW - wishing all the best for you my Brother.  Hang in there.  Miracles do happen.  At the very least you can pass on your love of Hunting and the outdoors on to your Children.  Watching your Son or Daughter hunt and take Game is just as gratifying as doing it yourself.

Be Blessed my Brother.

Always hate to hear of this stuff. Can't even begin to imagine what you must be feeling in regards to having to give up trad archery. Even more so with the effects it's having on you and your family. I feel for you and wish you all the best in whatever lays ahead.   :thumbsup:

Tw,

I know there are no words to help with this, but I do wish you well.  Life is not "fair" some times.  But thankfully, you are still above the dirt.  I have a good friend in south LA who was diagnosed with MS(i can't remember how long back), but it really takes a toll on him.  He was an unbelievable archer before, and now he is just like the rest of us. lol.  He can shoot!  I hope the medicine gives you the response we are all hoping for!  God Bless.

Keep fighting, TW!

I always enjoyed reading your threads and poems!

Prayers up for you, my friend! I call you "my friend", and although I have never met you in person, do consider you a friend.

We all reach a point in our life that we realize that hunting is a blessing but our family and faith trump everything. Be encouraged and know God is mindful of you.

Prayers for positive progress going forward from the treatments.  As others have said, you're always still welcome at Tradgang, don't have to be an active Traditional hunter to pass on your wisdom and love for the sport.

TW ... You are a courageous hunter and person. I wish the best future for you and your family. I have a hunting friend who has MS. I went with him on his last real bow hunt for Caribou at McKay Lake. I was with him when he shot his last rifle deer. Eventually like you MS took away his hunting but not his spirit. Newer medication has helped him greatly and he still drives with hand controls. He has had MS for 23 years ...

I wish you the best and will pray for you and your family.
Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good
