Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin Dead at 44

5 posts in this topic

I just read an article about Steve Irwin dying. Apparently he was stung through the heart by a stingray while diving off the coast of queensland. I really dont know what to say about this being I loved the man and his show.....All my prayers go out to his family and everyone affected by this...

This man did wonders for sharing his love of the outdoors with millions of fans. It's a tragic loss.

Steve's always been a top notch fella in my book and the channel clicker always paused on the Animal Planet & Discovery Channel for a few seconds to see iffin he was on.

He was a stand-up kinda guy and I will continue to look to look at him as a "role model" in terms of his passion and love for the outdoors and its "beautiful" wildlife creatures.

I agree with everything Tyler said, but I'm gonna say what many of you may be thinking but not willing to say, "IF you mess with the bull".

I really liked his passion, but he did some things that were darn right dangerous. It would be interesting yet morbid to see that final filming, was it a complete freak accident or was he pushing the limits like he's done before.

At least he went doing what he loved to do.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4

      There was 20 at the site.  I'm not worried about the main sheet of ice, just the access and near shore/shallow areas.   Plenty of ice everywhere else I drilled.

      My kids went out Sat, Sun.  Went from Vermilion to Myrtle lake, said the trails were bumpy, but plenty of snow.  Lake has snow, but pretty slushy.
