What an incredible and hurtful loss! I solute you and Sean!!!!!
I jus t got a phone call from a very kind lady who said she found a note In her late husbands car that had my phone # and a description of my old car. After talking with her for awhile I figured out it was the wife of MULEY51. She informed me that he had past away and found the note in her car as she was cleaning it out. MULEY51 had deer hunted in D7 every year and we had PM'ed many times hoping to meet up because I have a cabin in Shaver Lake and he always hunted with family at Wishon.
You all might remember his posts about his son Sean who was killed in a military helicopter training accident. I always felt a connection with him because we both had lost children way too early and he was always understanding of my plight.
Thoughts and prayers go out to Muley51 and all of his family and friends............. RIP my friend
Keep your nose to the wind and your eyes to the skyline.
What an incredible and hurtful loss! I solute you and Sean!!!!!
There wasn't enough room in the boat.
Wow what a huge loss. My heart goes out to the family. I also know that he will be missed here.
Prayers to the family...
Blue sky Muley51.................

Prayers to the family
Man of few words
Peace be with Muley51 & his family.
He's now has his son back in his arms.
He will be missed.
Sorry to hear this I always enjoyed his posts and could tell he loved his son very much RIP mule 51
Darn it. I was wondering if he was around after I posted on his sons birthday. He seemed to be a real good guy. Sorry to hear he is gone. RiP buddy!!
I'm sorry to hear this, Prayers to the family, RIP
Always enjoyed his posts about hunting with his family, and multi-generations. If I recall rightly, his wife recently started hunting with him. RIP Muley51, I'm sure Sean was waiting for you.
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.
Wow this is absolutely shocking to me I am so saddened he was a great jho member for sure always enjoyed his post and interaction here on jho.
He will be truly missed and my prayers and condolences goes out to his wife and family members. Hope u and Sean are now together r.i.p. brorher......tra

It's impossible to know everything, but it is possible to surround yourself with those that do...Henry Ford...kind of reminds me of JHO!
Damn....no words. :-(
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.
This is a sad one for sure. Muley51 was an outstanding JHO member and always had positive things to add. He was helpful, informative and definitely had a hunter's spirit and motivation. As many of you do, I always enjoyed his mult-generation hunts and hated when his father passed away. My heart broke for him when he lost ETC2NA and now my heart breaks for his family suffering what must be doubly painful after the loss of a son. Prayers for his family.
Is this him?
There are two types of countries in the world today.
Those that use the metric system and those that have been to the moon.
VERY SAD. I remember reading about the helo crash and loss of life and then a short time later him posting that is was Sean.
Rest in peace brother.
Man thats horrible. He was a nice guy. Did you find out what happened?
Bummer. Anyone know how old he was?
"There is something about those bleating chickens that makes a man want to grab his shotgun." - Edward Abbey
Sorry to hear this, he seemed like a neat guy.
Wow.... I remember the post about his son... Never got to know him but all of his post of family hunting together hit a core in my heart because I started to take my son and nephews hunting with me... My condolence to his family .. Rip 51... U will be missed
Pig is what i do very well...cuz my only question is...how many do u want me to leave???

Wow, What a blow!! This is just absolutely heart wrenching and I can't say any better what has already been so eloquently said. The "only" slight consolation is that Muley 51 does not have to feel the pain and torture that he obviously felt every waking hour by the loss of at first his father but then by his son! I can't imagine that kind of daily feeling of loss and sorrow. My heart goes out to his wife and family that now have to bear this additional burden God Bless them. Thanks for posting this Chuck.

I believe I met him once way back in the early days of JHO. Real nice guy. Definitely a shame.
