    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.

    Prayers for the family.Thank you Fred for all that you have done for us and taught us about this great state. Rest in peace in Gods Great Outdoors.
     
  15. 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.
