Dean Wilson Sr. Passed away this week. He was in many ways kind of like another dad or uncle for me. He used to take me hunting when I was 10 or 11 years old. Dean supported my family the first year we came to Alaska. We were living on beans and salt pork and he showed a great deal of generosity by giving our family a moose quarter. He taught my brother and I how to set fox cubby sets and probably taught more people about trapping than the majority of people I know. I met my wife at his moose camp.
He was always kind and strong even when his parkinson's caused problems.
I know that he is hunting moose and trapping wolves and lynx in that great trapping country beyond.
