So sorry to hear of Doug's passing. I had the greatest privilege to able to moose hunt with Doug for many , many years at Split Rock Hunt Camp. He was a hard worker, a lot of fun , but most importantly he was the best cook any hunt camp could ask for. We affectionately gave him the nick name "Cookie". We will miss him so much. Buck and Liz
