View Full Version : Hog hunter loses his son!

November 4, 2009, 11:35 AM
I just learned that a fellow hog dogger just lost his son in a hunting accident...
Apparently the son (older teen) was in the back of a huntin' truck and was thrown out and landed on his head. He died from the injury...

Be safe out there guys! That kind of loss is impossible to fathom for us fathers who have not had to suffer the loss of our son, best friend and favorite hunting buddy!!!:(
With tears in my eyes,

That's terrible. My thoughts are with the family.

Guns, vehicles, heights...........Hunting has many risks. Be safe out there and keep your loved ones safe.

I am sorry to hear of your friend's loss. As a father and grandfather, I empathize with him greatly. Our prayers will be with him and his family.

That is a terrible tragedy. Their family is in my prayers.

My condolence`s and prayers to the family and friends.

That is very sad.

Many people are not aware that off road travel and riding in the back of uncovered trucks does lead to accidents.

I'm very sorry that your friend was killed. Prayers sent.

Very sorry for the loss. Thoughts and prayers from me and mine.

The loss of a son leaves an emptyness and absolute vacum within that nevers ... Not even the arrival of a newborn heals that wound.

It is the natural order of things for sons to lose their fathers at some point in life. Not so for fathers to lose sons. That's a genuine tragedy, Brent. Please convey what condolences are possible to the family.

Heart and prayers sent to him and his family.

There was another tragic incident that happened when I was a boy. There was a father and son deer hunting with bows and both were set up in trees quite close to one another.

A deer came directly in between them and the the father took the shot, dropped the deer AND his son.

What happened was freakishly bizarre. The arrow went through the deer, ricocheted off of a rock, and then hit his son in the forehead.

True and tragic story.

I am very cognizant of the "typical" hunting accidents such as crossing fences with loaded guns, dropping loaded weapons from tree stands and folks being shot by other hunters. I just feel we need to pay more attention to the atypical situations such as the one that took this 16 year old's life. It is common in areas of dog hunting sports to just jump in the back rather than waste time trying to squeeze too many in the cab.

Thanks for all ya'lls thoughts for this family!

At the bottom of everything I am is the truth that nothing matters more than family to me. I can't imagine anything that would crush me so completely as losing a son or daughter would. My sympathies to the dad and to his family. Please God help us all to endure what comes our way, in situations such as this especially.

terrible thing to hear, my prayers go out to those guys.

November 7, 2009, 07:37 PM
Very Sorry to hear.... Terrible Incident.

Thoughts and prayers go out to family and friends.

Sorry to hear about the hunting accident and I can't fathom what the Dad must be going through.

We have already before many times, and I offer it again: If you need to chat, PM me.

That's horrible. Be safe out there gents

November 7, 2009, 10:05 PM
That's horrible. May God's grace and peace be with his family. I would be totally devistated if something like that ever happened to my son. You guys were all there for me when I lost my dad 3 years ago next month. Keep this family in your prayers, and stay safe this season.

I'm so sorry for your friend. You will need to stick by him for many years.

One of my best friends up in Live Oak lost his son many years ago to a typical 'cross the fence' accident. The son was his eldest and 14 at the time plus he was suffering PTSD from Vietnam. It tore the family apart.

I wish that we could have been closer (by distance) and that I could have offered more support. If you have that opportunity, do it! You'll never regret it.

HD - I'm so sorry to hear this! May God bless his family that somehow they may cope with this terrible tragedy.

November 7, 2009, 10:55 PM
Such a tragic loss....I can only hope him and his family had a good life before this tragedy.

Send them my deepest sympathy and prayers on such a sad day
From me and mine.
I too have children and it would devastate me too loose any of them.

November 8, 2009, 12:42 AM

November 8, 2009, 08:37 PM
My condolences to your friend. Unfortunately we take for granted the "risks" we undertake with our pastime/lifestyle hunting. Still, a great loss for a father.

Terrible! BUT, someone was being dumb! I know as I was run over after being thrown out of a vehicle while hunting. Life interference for nearly 2 years! It was just dumb and I had myslef to blame.
