    Prayers to his family. He posted some nice bucks he had taken from his chair with the 25-06 and bow. I hope he died peacefully doing what he loved.

    God speed, Paul

    Thanks, fossilman, for letting us know.
    Think me not unkind and rude,

    That I walk alone through grove and glen.

    I go to seek the God of the wood,

    And fetch His word to men.

    Damn, that's sad. He was the one that talked about his ailments being associated with aspartamine, or some other man made additives? Very sad indeed!

    I hope he was watching a big 10 point lumber across the field in the moments before he passed!!! Prayers out to his family and friends.

    Sadly, it appears his death is the result of a hunting accident. Let's all be careful out there.

    Very sad indeed. As inchr48 said please be careful all.

    I'm always sorry to hear of a hunter dying, however a member of JHO is almost like losing family. I was forever impressed by his get-up-and-go attitude especially given his limitations. In that capacity, he should stand as a testament to "you can do whatever you set your mind to do". There wasn't any give-up in Farmdude.

    Prayers for blessings on his family.

    Well said and very true Belchfire!

    The world is a lesser place today without Paul "Farmdude" Sletten. He set an example we can all struggle to follow and was a very positive force of nature. God Bless You Paul. Thanks for all the helpful advice along the way. See you around the campfire in Heaven buddy.

    PS: How did this happen?
    Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.

    The U.S. city with the most restrictive gun laws in the nation, Washington, D.C., has the highest murder rate at 24 per 100,000. The state with the most unrestrictive gun regulations, Vermont, has the lowest murder rate at 0.48 per 100,000.

    That makes me sad.

    On one hand, he died doing what he loved. On the other, a hunting accident is always a tragic event.
