Anyone on here fighting COPD? I have Bronchiectesis and it is slowly getting worse. It sure makes it hard to climb hills to my stands, or just doing things in general like shed hunting, etc. It`s easy to take your breathing for granted, until you don`t have it. Thank god I have an atv, but it`s not a cure-all getting to stands. Just venting, I guess. All replies welcome. No negative responses though.
Don't have COPD but I got diagnosed with asthma at age 54. Was relieved as I thought it was a heart issue due to lack of breath doing anything. Still...a big problem as I'm short on breath and I'm realizing very quickly that my days of elk hunting in mountains are numbered. Keep a positive attitude and work hard to stay in the woods!
well glad you are still getting out there!

My dad does. He's an active guy but the breathing problems have made it tougher for him (he keeps a portable oxygen tank handy incase he needs it). I'm actually curious how he'd do in higher elevations, as he currently lives at around 200' above sea level (not talking alpine levels, just 2-4k feet mostly).
