It seems like it was just a few days ago I was sending him off with prayers and thanking him for his service.  This is just overwhelming.

DANG Crazysccrd and all of our other members over there.   Be careful.  WE REALLY DO CARE and THANK YOU for what you are doing, eventhough we wish you were home.

my I suggest that the mods lock all other catigorys for a period of time to show respect for him ? I don't know if it's possible but seems like the right thing to do . Can't believe how choked up i'm getting and I only knew him through his words and stories he shared here on the forum ... really one of the great guys to have on our side  !
:yeah:

Inuendo, wasn't he an Italian proctoligist?

Didn't know him except for on here, but I just read his last posts, and i'm getting tears in my oatmeal. Hope this is bad info and he is still kick butt over there.

Disbelief. Colockumelk is a great man. We hunted a lot of the same areas that we both know well. Never met him in person, but felt I knew him pretty good from on here. He had some of the best hunting stories, and seemed to really hunt hard. This is very hard news to take in. :'( >:( :'(

Prayers sent to his family.

Very, very sad news.  RIP Colockumelk, thank you for serving to protect us, and I pray you are standing at the head of a drainage devoid of other orange vests and full of the bulls you loved to pursue.  God Bless.
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.
If I ageed with you, then we'd both be wrong.

Wow.  I only chatted with Aaron online, but he sure seemed like he had his stuff together.  He knew our state's hunting, history, regulations, and GMUs very well.  I'm pretty sure his brother is also on this forum.  I pray for his wife and family right now as this story and news unfolds.  We don't know for certain this is true yet from the OP, but it doesn't sound good either.  I was never in the service, but I'll give a moment of silence to every one of them for their dedication, impact and lives.  May Aaron rest in peace.
