Re: Ian McMurchy Has Passed Away!

Another great man has gone on to the hunting grounds in the sky!

My condolences to his family and friends. I've been here on the board reading Ian's articles nearly since the beginning. His knowledge and friendliness are legendary.. he will be missed.

    I sat with Ian on a flight from the states to Canada on my way bear hunting about ten years ago. That 3 hour flight was very entertaining. Ian an I hit it off and talked guns, bullets, and reloading. He did not realize I was bow hunting until we went through customs. Ian introduced me and a customer of mine to Swift Scirocco bullets. We corresponded from time to time. I would put Ian in a class of outdoor writers with the likes of Bob Hagel, Elmer Keith, and Jim Carmichael.

    Yes, he will be missed by those who knew him and by many who never had the honor to have known him. God rest his sole and may his shooting and hunting go on forever in the best hunting grounds ever.
