    So so sad.

    God Speed GT.

    Jeez, met GT(Pat) and Toothy Thing last year when they were kind enough to include me on their permits for duck hunts.
    Nice guy all around.

    Prayers for GT, his family, and his close friends..
    I am glad to only be a bird hunter with bird dogs...being a shooter or dog handler or whatever other niche exists to separate appears to generate far too much about which to worry.

    I think we will all mourn this for awhile. Some of us knew him personally and some only on forums but one thing we all have in common is GTfish (JOTA) was a daily part of our lives, some for many years some for a short time, he will be irreplaceable and we all will need to grieve this loss.

    Sorry to hear this, condolences to his family, for their pain is beyond comprehension.

    Good bye buddy.
    Painful being first on scene with his wife and then a few minutes ago driving his truck to my house. It had examples of all things he loved to do.

    Glad you wer there.

    I too am shocked and saddened by the news. :angel
