    I hate to have to report this with it being Christmas and all but we’ve lost one of our own.

    Bowfinger who frequented this sight and quite often contributed has gone on to the great duck woods in the sky.

    I don’t know all the details as the search and rescue haven’t released anything yet.
    The exact cause of the accident is sketchy but it sounds like speed and a narrow channel are the main factors. Apparently that hopped up tohatsu motor accelerated him straight in a hairpin turn on the upper pond river and sent him head on into a large oak tree at upwards of 45 mph.
    It’s a real shame.

    He will be missed in the duck woods and on this site.
    Y’all take time to reflect on this and please always consider wearing your helmet when scouting and running the river.
    RIP Bowfinger.

    I told him that hot mota was too much for ole dead man's curve. I guess it finally got him. But he went put hammerin down. Maybe I'll buy his rig when the time is right and give it a proper burial.

    Holy shit.


    We didn't go out today, cause it was slick on them back roads where we go chase birds. I love duck hunting, but birds aren't worth that...

    Prayers to his family.

    7A04CB23-D1BC-4FAD-A830-A09580DFE3DF.jpeg I knew bowfinger well, considered him one of my closest friends. He will be missed and I’m hurting... but as I said, I knew bowfinger well... last thing he would want is ho hum BS! So I’m gonna load up in the AM, and I’m taking that corner that got him wide open with both middle fingers up yelling BILLY all the way. Green gonna die tomorrow the only way we knew how... Feetdown. Brown water and a good cigar gonna cap the hunt off. Merry Christmas ya bunch of Ricky’s, this ones for the best asshole I knew

    Not much left of it from what I hear.
    Junior Spantoe with the volunteer firemen said it was crushed like a Busch lite can.

    His ol lady is probably lookin at ol post to get kill pics for a bulletin board collage.

    Any of y’all got any memories to share post em up.

    Well guess you shouldn't have painted that lower unit red. Whatever the truth is glad your not dead.
