    What a shame.
    My thoughts and prayers go out to these two and their families.
    All we can do is go forward. And going forward, lets all try to remember to wear PFD's. Wearing one might have made a difference and I see waterfoulers frequently yet never see anyone wearing a life jacket.

    DAMN!!!! I feel horrible for the families and the loss of these guys.

    May the good lord give these families the strength and courage to find peace and move forward in life knowing that these guys passed doing what they loved.

    We have a real short shelf life in these frigid waters guys....waterfowl'rs, Ice Fishermen be smart and be safe out there. Your families need you around.

    X2 average funeral expenses alone are about 10K and that is tough on young families.

    He was way to young to die tragically like that and I feel its a great loss to us here on this site too.

    I still on occasion re-read posts from Cal45, a member on this site from the old-days. I met him one time up at Cabelas for a meet and greet we had. Nice guy that's for sure. Both will be missed I'm sure by many.
