My hunting and fishing partner for the last 15 years or so died of a heart attack in his sleep last night (on my birthday). He was not yet 50 years old, he was a few years older than me but in a lot better shape. I have been trying to help his wife and family out but the problem is they don't know what his final wishes are as they have never discussed it. As outdoorsmen we spend alot of time in the outdoors in what could be dangerous situations. Not only can you die from natural causes at any age but being in the outdoors you can become lost, swept downstream, caught in avalanche, be in an overturned boat etc, etc, etc. His family sounds like they want to cremate him and have me sprinkle him where we hunted which is one thing that we have talked about, but he never talked about it with his family. Make sure you have these items covered before it is too late. As always make sure before you leave on your excursions at least one person will know where you are in case something does happen. This is a very hard time for me, he was a very special person and I want to make sure his final wishes come true. I would be willing to bet most people on this board are over 30 or more, make sure you get your health checked out and you get in shape before you hit the outdoors it can turn on you quick. Be careful everyone out there has someone who really loves or cares about you.
