    Sorry to hear of your loss Steve. Our camp has gotten much better at keeping track of where members are hunting on our property. Everyone should heed your advice and do the same. The time saved in finding a fellow hunter in case of a health issue or accident could be the difference in life and death.

    Prayers for you and your family.
     
  5. Steve,

    I’m so very sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine how horrible it was for you to experience that, and how difficult it had to be to share your experience with the rest of us. Thank you for doing so. Hopefully many will take your advice to heart.

    When I leave this life I can’t think of a better way to go.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to you, your family and your In-Law’s family.

    Sorry to hear of your loss.

    I extend my condolences.

    And I don't think this was preventable. I don't mean to minimize your grief or shock or the awful shock you had do go through not being able to save him.

    I like what GrizzlyHunter said. I'd like to go out that way too if it was pre-ordained to be my time.

    Don't go hard on him or yourself. Sometimes bad things happen to good people. It wasn't his fault, nor yours.

    And I say that with heartfelt love.

    Yes, be careful and take care of yourself and do your best to be safe and don't go out (die) too soon. If you have control over that. We don't always have control of circumstances. And I'm not trying to lecture. Just pointing out reality.

    Grief is appropriate. And to go through denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.

    Bargaining is: If only he or I did this, then it wouldn't happen. It doesn't work that way.

    I'm not trying to minimize anything. This was horrible. And things happen and that is a wild story about pursuing adventure in life till the very end.

    Shocking and Grief-stricken.

    Thanks for telling us the story. It is an enormous help to help anyone that hears it. To go on and be better in living their life.

    Yes, we will take care of ourselves and check out our medical issues. But I wouldn't blame the brother in law for anything other than a tragic and random happening. It wasn't his fault. It just happened.

    And I hate to make these comments, because of the tragedy.

    And it is a discussion site. So we can talk.

    Sorry for your loss and a big unfortunate reminder for those of us that always hunt solo.
