I had that dreaded cancer bug and I end up coughing a lot which clearly messes with my hunting.. Especially deer hunting.. After I am sitting for a while patiently waiting and all of a sudden I take coughing really ruins your hunt.. But, it's not stopping me from getting out there.. I also have an issue with a disc in my back that every once in a while messes with my right leg. But, again I will not let it stop me from doing what I enjoy. Although like Cal has stated I need to pace myself more..

It's a tough decision to make. But what are you gonna do?

Age is my "injury". At 67, dragging a deer out f the woods is getting a little harder not to mention sitting up to shoot while in a ground blind goose\duck hunting. Still love doing it though.

Best thing one can do as we age is STRETCH. Flexibility is #1 reason for injury. Stretch, yoga, pilates etc. Work on mobility and range of motion

arthritis in both hands, both shoulders, left elbow, and a bum knee and was just diagnosed with asthma, also have slight hypertension to deal with, needless to say I can't go after it like I use to, but still have fun, I miss bear hunting with hounds the most.

arthritis in the knees plus no cartilage has taken the fun out of hunting and fishing. it hampers me in getting around. luckily there are places that i can drive to so i can still fish. hunting all i have to do is go out the back door and watch the field and woods.

Mr Slim, I recommend a new knee! Life changing for me. Went from agony to go for a walk with my wife, to hiking 6-10 miles in the mountains, hunting, biking, fishing all pain free. You go through a short period of "what the hell did I do to myself" then you get better FAST and off you go.
