"Another elk tag returned...."

Guess we will be returning another LE elk permit to the DWR as my dad in law is loosing his fight with cancer.
We had to return his Late Monroe elk permit last year, and will be sending back his Early Fishlake tag after he leaves us here in a few days.
If any of you here at MM's happen to get the call from the DWR, please take the tag and use it keeping him in the back of your mind.

He would be very happy to know he has made someone else's dream come true!!!
Rick

Rick...you guys are in our prayers!!!

This is one of those times that I think that a tag should be able to be transferred!!!! I know that it is hard because some people will take advantage of things like that....but in a case like this then HE should be able to say who gets to take that tag and gets to experience the hunt as he passes from this life. I think it is HIS right...and would be the right thing to do!!!!!

Rick,

Sorry to hear that. I know you wanted to get out with him before this happened. Tell Bev she has our sympathy.

Go kill one for him Rick! Good luck with your tag later on!

BTW, that is just damn decent to let someone else have the chance to get out.

Cancer is just plain evil.. I'm so sorry to hear about this Rick. Thaanks for thinking of someone else by turning the tag in. It would have been very easy to forget about the tag and let it just sit.

Later, Brandon

Thanks guys..the waiting is over..he left us about an hour ago and I couldn't be happier for him... Now he will be with me on my hunt and will be my "trigger man"...He was with me when I took my first trophy elk and we packed that thing out piece by piece on our backs.

Slam, maybe I will join you guys for a couple of days. This will free up the early rifle hunt and I would enjoy helping you guys out....
thanks everyone for being there for us...
Gotta run...

Sounds like you two made many great memoies over the years. I'm sure I can't even fully understand your loss. I killed my first bull with my father in law too, very cherished memories. You'll see him again someday.

Sorry to hear he passed. It is never easy. I am glad he is out of pain though. I sure hope someone here gets the tag he had and we can see how they do. I hope you and Bev are doing okay considering the loss.

You and your wife are good people and I hate to see bad things happen to good people.

Lost my father to cancer 3 years ago a week before my archery bear hunt in Saskatchewan. I thought it would be lonely in the woods that week but it was the complete oposite. I really felt him during the hunt. Killed a nice bear and cryed afterwards. Prayers are with you and the family.

Sorry to hear of your loss. I think we all know something of how you feel. I lost my father to cancer 5 years ago. After being diagnossed in January he told me he wanted to hike into his favorite lake in the Uintah's just one more time. He didn't make it. We go up to that lake every summer and each time we do, we feel his presence there! Find that special place to honor your father-in-law, it helps!

Thanks to all for the kind words. You don't know what a few kind words can do to heal a broken heart.
It is so neat to see the support here from guys and gals that you only know as a "name" here on the internet.
I have made and met so many new friends here and hope to meet many more of you. It is amazing how much you have in common with some of the people you meet.
It is very comforting to see the support when someone else has family sickness or problems, but when it hits home and you are on the other side of the coin, the comfort comes in 10 fold..
I truly appreciate the thoughts and pray that someday we can find a cure for this ugly form of death and disease..
Rick

I don't know you,but just would like to send my sympathy to you and your family.I just lost my fater in law to cancer a month ago.It was very hard to watch the last weeks of what cancer can do to a man.All we can pray for is that they are in a better place.In your case I am sure your father in law started his Trophy Elk hunt early and when you meet again you will get to hear the story!!

God Bless You and your family

Now I have the opening of the early rifle hunt free, I'm going to have to try and get down to see you guys and maybe glass up a bull or two..


You wouldn't believe the hoops you have to jump thru to return a tag.... Hope I can get it done before the hunt arrives?

really sorry to hear that. Been there myself and worried about it for a few years but all is well for now. It sucks to have waited so long for a tag just to run out of time on everything else. My thoughts will be on him this year even though his tag is not in my hands.
Hope the family copes well
