So Wednesday I sat out in a cold wind. I had a cold since last weekend. Had chills Thursday night and didn't hunt Friday am . Felt a little better so I hunted Friday pm. Last night I had bad chills. Temperature this am was 104. Flu I think. So I am missing my favorite dates to hunt. Today I feel like crap all day Hope I feel better tomorrow.

I hear ya... I missed all of October due to illness. My holidays are just about over so seeing as it is the two week shotgun season here in southern Ontario, I dug out the slug gun to try to get er done before returning to work next Wednesday.

I feel your pain, I just bailed on a turkey hunt that I was really looking forward to, the culprit: a painful, chronic cough (bronchitis)! Totally sucks, can't hunt, or even sleep when you're coughing all day and night.

Get Tamiflu! If you get it withing 48h it will shorten the duration. I always prescribe cough syrup along with Tamiflu. If you take care of yourself, 72-96h should have you out there, but if it worsens, go get a chest xray. Number one complication of flu is pneumonia, but that's typically those under 5 or over 65.

Best of luck.

Had a bad round with the flu a week and a half ago. It seems to be going around. Temps between 103.6 and 104.4

You might be out of commission for more than a couple of days. I gotta say it sucked. Stay in bed. Hope you shake it quickly.

Make sure to get your flu shot! Just having influenza doesn’t protect you from other strains.
