    Default Hunting after Knee Surgery

    Hi all what’s the legality of hunting of a atv (engine not running keys in pocket), reason I’m asking is that at the end of August I’m having my left knee replaced and if it’s not healed enough wondering if I can take atv in and back it into bush with a camo tarp in front of it. Tree stand will not be an option and I could put ground blind up but would still have to cover atv after I get off it and walk to blind.

    oh wow hopefully everything goes alright!

    as for your question are you asking if you can drive your atv in and sit and hunt off your atv with engine off?

    ps your a real solider for still wanting to get out there after a knee replacement

    You cannot have a loaded firearm in or on any motor vehicle, whether the vehicle is running or not. This means that you cannot use your ATV, snowmobile, or truck as a watch seat.

    If you can get a doctor's letter and submit it to the MNR in order to get a special permission to hunt while sitting on an ATV.

    I know that they do this for people with permanent disabilities, but I'm not sure if they will do it for a temporary disability from a surgery.

    I would start by calling the ministry. They will most likely refer you to a form or explain to you what the steps are for your doctor to have you authorized.

    Best advice of all the posts.
    I have had both knees replaced, the right one this past Jan., hoping to go this fall.
    It can take 6 to 8 months for all the swelling to go down and things to get back to normal.
    Good luck with your surgery and , you must do all the physio excer. there is a lot of pain involved post surgery.

    Talk to the surgeon to see what exercises you can do prior to the surgery to assist with recovery. I had a torn meniscus surgery and the exercises I did prior to the surgery shortened my recovery. As others have said, the physio after the surgery is critical to long term recovery. Good luck

    Take a folding camo chair w you and sit beside the atv.

    Depends on how good the surgeon is, and especially how many knees they do a year!
    I was moose hunting exactly 9 weeks to the day I had knee replacement, and had no problem at all walking 2-4 miles per day!
    Jaycee must have had a surgeon who only did occasional knee replacements, because everyone who I talk to who had post-op problems had this type of surgeon.
    i had mine done at Toronto Western, and the surgeon and his team ONLY did knees and hips. That year he figured they would do about 400 knees alone.
