    1. The passing of a true gentleman and a very knowledgeable gun writer. He was one of the few that I could explicitly trust to really know what he was talking about. There are fewer like them today. It saddens me greatly…

    2. John Wootters was the main reason I read Peterson Hunting magazine. When he retired the magazine lost its attraction to me. Ms. Jeanne our prays and thoughts are with you.
