This just @#$%^& me off! I never get sick but wouldnt you know 2 days before season opens I would wake up with a cold.:confused: I don't know how to deal with a cold and hunt. The last time I had a cold was years ago and it was after season closed. My head is all stoped up and my nose is running like a water hose. What can I take to kick this mess by Wednsday?

Mucinex as already stated and I just got over a cold last week. What really helped me was Alka seltzer plus cold med. If you can stand the taste it works or aleast for me it did. I took mucinex and Alka seltzer and it helped alot.


Now for getting around coughing while hunting if you have a good one for that I would like to hear cause I'm still coughing.

I hunt with a cold and a very runny nose. If my nose is pouring, I will just pack each nostril with tissue so I do not have to constantly sniff. It forces the mucus down your throat instead of out your nose. However, you do have to change out the tissue every now and then. :cheers:

Alka-Selzer Plus! It will give you at least 4 or 5 hours in your stand with no symptoms. Play with pain! Stick it out and hunt! It only comes once a year!

There is no question weather or not I will be hunting. I WILL be up a tree. But my ears are so stoped up right now I can't hear squat. If there like this on Wednsday I think that a deer could climb my tree, tap me on the sholder and yell "Tag your it" before I would know he was there.

Seriously... AK Plus. Give it a try. I'm sure you'll be fine. Good luck to you! :darkbeer:

I just dealt with coughing in the stand this weekend. Didnt see a signle deer. My dad sat on a trail a couple hundred yards away and said he could hear me coughing. The 10 pt that has been passing my stand each day ran by him coming from my direction. All i had was a nagging cough. You can be tough and hunt like I did, but I have a feeling I screwed my spot up. Wait a week and then go shoot him. I saw my doc this morning and he gave me allegra D and a z max. I had been taking claratin D and a benedrly before I went to bed and it did nothing.
