I wrote this to my team in the 2020 PineFarm memorial contest. I thought a wider audience should see this and take this to heart (literally). I got up to my place last Friday night to begin a two week hunt. My brother-in-law had come up early in the day for the evening hunt. He went out about 1pm. It was cold, wet, and windy all day but with the front moving through and the weather to clear it couldn't be better to get the bucks moving. We always talked about these fronts and I know he was geeked about this one leading into the weekend. I was texting him off and on until about 6pm, sending him pictures of deer on the move. I arrived at my place about 8. It was not unusual for him to go dark when he had gotten a deer. He would often have them field dressed and hanging on the pole when you got there as a surprise. When I arrived his truck was not back. Texts went unanswered. The deer cart and sled were still in place. That set off the alarm bells. I hopped in my truck, found his truck, and started walking to where he told me he was hunting. In recent years we had gotten much better about knowing where each other would be hunting. As I got closer, I saw a lumenock. Surely he had gotten a deer and was hot on the trail and didn't hear the texts come in on his phone. Not far from the lumenock I saw a deer down. My BIL was lying on top of the deer unresponsive. He had begun field dressing the deer and had a heart attack. I called 911 and tried chest compressions but I could tell I was too late. A DNR officer and MSP officer got there amazingly fast. They had a electro shock machine they used in an attempt to revive. Too late. The lesson here. If you feel you are having an issue, get it checked out. Even if your doctor doesn't think much of it, you know your body best. You need to push to get it checked out if you think there is something wrong. This contest is named for the member PineFarm. He had something similar happen to him. It can happen to anyone. We as deer hunters overall are an aging group. I know my camp will forever now be changed and never be the same.
