It saddens me to say that a good friend and fellow sheep hunter Gene Bryner died yesterday while training on Flattop. He is a true inspiration to how long we can hunt if we put in the effort. He was 75 and training for this fall's sheep hunt, with a new partner. His long time sheep hunting partner that is a couple of years younger had to finally give up sheep hunting due to back problems. In the last few years he has been featured in the RAM magazine as the "Old Goat". It is unclear if he had a heart attack before he fell or if just simply slipped. He was a man who truly believed in God and loved his family. He will be truly missed by all who knew him.
