I believe it was complications from some type of pneumonia. Don't quote me on that, just the rumor. Still a sad day......

Keep chasing that big buck in heaven Fred.

That is sad news indeed. The entire family spent many a Thursday night gathered around the tv watching Practical Sportsman.

Default A very sad day indeed......

My thoughts and prayers go out to Zach and all of his friends & family. I tried to never miss a show. I was just remembering the way he loved to make fun of himself....dumping a crock-pot of chili off the seat of his mini-van after applying the brakes too hard.....and then dropping another one on the ground later.....the time he backed the fifth-wheel rental through stumps and trees ripping the crap-pipe off underneath and basically "killing it" as his spotter yelled at him to stop.....
I was grateful to him for resurecting Michigan Outdoors on Public TV, as I grew up with Mort Neff & Jerry Chipetta and missed the show very much. When I lived in Arkansas, I relished the tapes that friends sent me, and this show helped draw me back to Michigan.
I love you, my brother. May I join you in the Big Hunt before too long.
