    My friend Eric died this weekend in a terrible hunting accident. Eric and I worked many hours together at Cabela's, spent many lunches talking hunting and hunting together. Eric was a man not of these times and generation. He was a throwback to my grandfather's time.

    He leaves his wife, 4 kids, and two step kids behind. His house was just rebuilt after burning down last year.

    So my friends when you are in your tree, look to the sky and know we have a great one watching over us.

    Goodbye, my friend, save a tree stand for me:(

    Let's all be mindful while we're enjoying our hunts.

    Sorry for your loss. Although didn't know him I can tell through your description that he was the salt of the earth.
