I am very sad to hear about TG passing. He was a good guy with a lot of knowledge and experience. His ban has been removed. Respect given and may he rest in peace. Thanks Car for letting us know.

From info posted on another forum he found out in late January that he had bone cancer (I seem to remember he had that before and had beaten it then)

They thought that it was treatable. He spent only a couple of days in hospice and passed on March 16th.

Thanks Car ...TG was certainly a unique person. I had many Pm's with him over the years as a member and then as a mod. Respect given with no hesitation.

Yes he was. We hunted together in 2016, in Wyoming. I envy the amount of time he was able to spend in Wyoming each year. We had a good time on this trip and saw several bulls. After I left to come back home, he went on for 2 more months and filled a couple tags. He loved Wyoming!

I just found this on another hunting site and thought I would share it.

[color=rgba(58, 61, 58, 1)]All, im sorry I didn't get to you guys sooner. Mike had a spot of skin cancer (Merkel Cell carcinoma) removed from his arm last year. He then contracted the cancer in various places throughout his body. He opted not to treat it. Thanks god he didn't suffer long. He was in the same hospice and bed his wife was in when she passed and he was comfortable. Through a very very good friend and hunt partner of his Mike was able to see all the well wishes and great comments from folks of other website forums that he belonged to. The next day he passed, I believe with a smile in his heart[/color]

I knew Top for more than 15 years. He and I were both regulars on the AccurateReloading site as well as the NAHC site. He was a little rascally at time but he did know that of what he spoke when it came to hunting. RIP my old friend.
