    81, and hunting in a tree stand? Good way to go, and quick too. I should be so lucky.

    Sign me up for that. Lots worse ways to go.
    Take away the soap box, take away the ballot box and all that's left is the cartridge box.

    sounds like the buddy heater blew him up,
    But I agree, go out fast, doing something you love is a good death.

    RIP ! I understand getting older that your body does not retain warmth and some heaters work,We have a portable heater that shuts down when knocked over but this is something to be more aware of !Wonder if he saw the buck of a lifetime in his scope when explosion occurred ? In any event he went with a smile on his face !

    Or if involving a motorcycle, the obligatory wearing//not wearing/ unknown if wearing a helmet.
    Legislating to prevent people's acts is fantasy
