    It is with bleary eyes that I must announce that longtime staff member Art Eatman passed from this earth last night.

    Art was a personal friend and mentor to many of us, his knowledge and experience and most of all his unique way with words and stories will be missed.

    RIP Art...

    Just seeing this. Very sad news. A great loss for us.

    Thankfully, we have a small part of the man...written in the pages here, to remember him by.

    He will be sorely missed.

    Art and H&H met at one of my dove hunts. You could tell immediately that there was a close connection there.

    RIP, my friend.

    RIP Art.
    I will pray for his family.

    He could be a tough mod, but always seemed fair and reasonable. From his posts, I never would have guessed he was a gentleman possessed of so many years.....

    He and Ol' Fuff will be missed.
