I feel for you. :cry:

I did get out on 09/15 (MD's opening day), but no shots. Since then I've been sidelined with the same crap as you. No fever, but horrible chest congestion and coughing that's not condusive to bowhunting.

Hope you feel better soon.

I hear you bud!!! I've been home from work all week. I just can't shake this cold. I guess it's better to be sick now and not during the rut. Good luck.

It is going around, at least in the MD-PA-DE-VA area.

Good news: the "feeling crappy" phase last about 2-3 days, tops.

Bad news: the congestion, phlegm and mucus coughing lasts about three weeks! :eek:

I had it last week and weekend. Just cleared Wed. My Doc is a friend and he said take Robitussin PE. It is non drowsy and it really worked. You can take it every 4 hrs. Keeps head and chest conjestion clear.
Go for it and get out there!
