I did exactly the same thing a few months ago. I kept some ice on my ankle and foot when I could for a couple of days and then was careful not to overstress my ankle and further injure it. I was doing pretty well in a few days, but it took several weeks to get over it completely. I have thick ankles that are not injured easily and have seen others suffer for much longer after similar incidents. Good luck. Hope you heal quickly. There is not much you can do to speed up your recovery. Just don't do anything stupid to make things worse.

Sounds like you've got a good plan so far. Let me second what Smokin Joe said about the lace up ankle support-its WORTH it. I rolled my ankle pretty bad years back and still wear the support if I'm going to be doing any sporting type stuff. Depending on what kind of boots you'll be wearing, I'd strongly suggest wearing the brace on your hunt. Your ankle may feel pretty darned good by then, but I can tell you that rolling it again on that soon after the initial injury hurts a lot and would likely be a lousy end to your hunt. Hope all goes well

Cure for sprain is RICE - rest, ice, compression, elevation. Still takes time. Being gimped you will be able to sit longer in a blind and will be able to still hunt like us old geezers - walk a little look a lot.
