Very nice Memorial yesterday at a ranch overlooking the skykomish river.   His 5 year old son said “Dad’s gone to Heaven where all  the big bucks are.”

Agreed.

Can’t imagine the loss and emptiness experienced by his wife, kids, family and close friends.  Tragic
People get offended at nothing at all. So, speak your mind and be unapologetic.

This can be moved if needed or another thread started. Let's make sure these 2 boys get to experience as many of the things as we can possibly do that they would have with their dad. Not sure if there is extended family members getting these boys out hunting and fishing, but I'd happily help in any way I could, whether any kind of hunting/fishing trip or paying for licenses in the future. The Go Fund Me is great, but I'd like to do more "outdoorsy" catered things to get these boys through this tragedy. I'm sure there will be plenty of backing from the Huntwa guys who always seem to step-up as well. :tup:

Thank you Muley, I’ll make sure the Mom is aware of the support which I know she will find comfort in.

The forum will be here however we can help.

Just let us know.

This is tough to read. RIP.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

I knew Jay. We exchanged Lots of emails on his Late Chiwawa tag. He loved hunting both in and out of state. This is the time of year he loved to be out chasing bears.. He will be missed. RIP Jay

Those boys have been on my mind the last few days and I was just thinking this same thing today. I know he had some good tags this year. Could they be transferred to his boy? I could do some leg work on that if needed. Don't want to overstep my bounds though as a complete stranger. Just thinking out loud.

RIP 180. Very sad news.
