I'm working my way up through the light rifles now and expect to be shooting magnums by the end of the month. Elk season for me is in 10 weeks.
Perhaps yours is worst than mine. My doc says ~12 weeks of recovery time if I do the prescribed PT. I did self-initiated PT exercises at home twice a day before my PT appointment and pushed it further everyday as I increased the range of motion and tolerated the pain - iced it after exercises ... the pain eventually went away.
One thing I need to work on is the strength to push, i.e., at this time I can only do incline press exercises (no problem on pull downs) with 35 lbs of weight.
Good luck and have a speedy recovery!
