The hunting accident story hits home...
LINK

Paul, as he was known by most, was a family member and has been a hunting/fishing partner of mine for many years. My cousin, myself and a few other close family members always called him Warren. Caught many a fish, and killed many doves, ducks and a deer with him through the years.

Freak accident.

I’m don’t know what else to say, but it hit the news so I figured I’d share the link to say be careful. There are an endless amount of ways to hurt yourself in the woods.

Damn, I’m sorry for your loss.
I pray everyday I step into the woods to return home safely to my family. This is just awful no matter how you slice it.

Thanks guys. I’m honestly in shock.

What I got from the family is basically what the news report says. Pending the autopsy finds he had a heart attack or some other medical condition, it looks like he fell and hit his head.

The weird thing is, he was always a slow methodical guy hunting and fishing wise. To a point we ribbed him about it.

Big reason as to why I gave up the outdoors. I was deer hunting one morning and I blacked out. My CRT-D fired off. Was by myself and no body around and I was deep inside the woods. I had to walk almost a mile back to a road. Cell phone service was a no go. Anyway, got to my truck and straight to the ER. Talk about scare the living hell out you.

So sorry for your friend and family.

Some advice for the older guys here who still go it alone- get yourself a PLB. They are a bit pricey (~$400) but will give your family the peace of mind they need to let you keep going. Should something happen, you need to be able to press a button, and your family and the local rescue group (if necessary) will be coming to you.

It doesnt track you until you hit the button, so no need to worry about your wife finding out you're at the local watering hole instead of the woods.

Sorry to hear about your cousin. Hopefully his family can manage financially without him.

While 53 is a bit young to leave this earth, doing so while out in the woods enjoying a hobby isn't a bad way to go. It beats living out your last years incontinent and not knowing your own name.
Obviously don't know how I'm going out but I hope its quick and takes me by surprise while I still have use of most of my faculties.

I pray we all have a lot of real estate between 53 and the nursing home.

Tragic accident. Terrible.
