    Hunting is one thing, but a hunting trip isn't about feeding family. It's about wanting to feel like a 'big man'. It's the animals' territories...feeling like a 'big man' involves taking risks and accepting the consequences. Not wishing anything bad on anyone, but it's all part of the very known risks.
    Ryleigh and family aren't googling anything but friends of the family are definitely branching out and trying to put a face to this. To show that Austin and Ryleigh are real everyday people, one whose life was cut tragically short and one who has to somehow find a way to go on without the man she expected to spend the rest of her life with.

    IDK about other people, but none of the meat goes to waste, regardless of what state the hunt is done in for this family. Even in her grief, Ryleigh made sure to inquire about the meat that was gathered during this trip and found a way to donate that meat locally so even in a tragic situation like this, it doesn't go to waste. Other "trophies" such as rack, fur, or even a full head can come from any hunt, even a local trip. Austin would not (and Ryleigh does not) want anything to happen to the animal, who was just doing bear stuff when it came across Austin and then it did what bears do. Austin made decisions that ultimately cost him his life during this trip, but he in no way, deserved what happened to him.

    I love when people seem to think that the members here are saying that their family members "deserved to die". I mean, point out where anyone on here said that.

    There are exceptions to the rule, of course, like kid rapers and murderers etc. But nobody is on here saying anyone deserved to die. You're confusing that with us not being surprised that they died. AKA "Play stupid games, win stupid prizes". He was such an avid hunter, he should have known that this is when bears fatten up for the winter and field dressing a moose would attract them.

    As for the death threats etc. Nobody deserves that in this case and I'm sorry that's happening, however to think that this wouldn't be reported on as widespread news with the circumstances as such is idiocy. The entitlement is what I don't appreciate here. They aren't special just because they were "Well respected". They've read equally as strange circumstances of others throughout their lives and didn't bat an eye. I'm 99% sure of that fact.

    Not crazy about hunting, but he didn't deserve to die, and by such a crazy way too.

    I didn't mean to sound like anyone here said he deserved it. The Fox news story on Facebook is a really good place to see people saying exactly that, it's really just repulsive.

    As I said, he made decisions that cost him his life. When we hunt, we hunt in teams for a reason. If something happens out there, a backup is good. Most of us go out alone occasionally but it's not typical when you hunt large game as they were.

    It wasn't even entitlement when they asked the reporter not to initially release names at that time. The parks department hadn't even released his name yet. The family had just found out the morning before. Ryleigh was out of state as well (not in Alaska) and hadn't even gotten a flight home yet when the MNJ ran it. It was just something that was made harder than it already was. I cannot imagine anyone in the same situation wouldn't want a small amount of privacy.

    Someone else asked if I was a family friend. Yes I am.
