Most of you didn't know him, but Carl Griffith, a good friend of mine, that was just about to turn 88, died yesterday of covid. He had his shots and all and still caught it.

Carl was one of the last trappers in my area that I knew and we had trapped together for several years. Just talked to him on phone last week and we were talking about going out to see if we could locate a beaver or two, to trap. Carl was a member of OSTA, for the last couple of years... so some may know him from there. I guess I am the "Lone Ranger" again.

Rest In Peace old Pal...

Have been trapping 75 years … Looking forward to next season...

Sorry to hear of your loss Actor. May he rest in peace.


Life sure is tough when you don't learn from the mistakes of others.

Sorry for your loss


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

That is very sad to hear. I hope he didn't suffer too much.
