Sorry for the loss of your friend, John. Everybody I ever heard talk about Tony said he was a class act. Prayers for his family.

Hate to hear that. He was a fine individual. I can remember talking to him in 1993. I explained that our wildlife society was wanting to get a Knight muzzleloader for our advisor, and that we were wanting to give it to him at the conclave we were hosting at UTK. we asked what kind of deal we could get and explained that our advisor had done tremendous things for wildlife in Tennessee. He sent us a brand new rifle with our advisors name engraved in the barrel, free of charge!
