R.I.P ~ Chuck Van Dyke
« on: September 27, 2021, 04:56:37 PM »

It is a sad day.  I just loss a good friend.  Chuck Van Dyke passed away today.

Chuck was a life long time member and Hall of Fame recipient of WSTA
He held the Position of County Rep and Regional Director at one time representing Yakima County.
He was a good water trapper and had a small WCO Business.

He served our great country in the Navy as soon as he graduated high school.   :salute:
He will be missed by a lot of people.
Rest in piece my friend, until we meet again, Happy Trails

I didn't plan on it this way but I have Chuck on the front cover of our Fur Shed magazine for this issue that will be hitting your doorsteps by this weekend.
So he is a picture of Chuck.

Sorry about the loss of your friend, John.

" 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

Sad indeed. I heard he was suffering from dementia and was planning on stopping by. Very nice man. Had WSTA meetings in his fur shed back in the day. A lot of good guys I met there have passed now.
RIP

A beer ?  I'm thinking many a couple more than that.   :tup:
The two of them are probably trapping something up there along with the rest of the guys.
I sure hope they leave some for us when we get there.
