Since Stan recently passed on I felt drawn to listen to this podcast with Stan one more time a little closer... Part of it caught me by surprise, he talked about a hunt in 1990 that was particularly tough and said how he got his shot the last 1/2 hour of the last day of the season... I don't remember exactly when on a a lot of my hunts anymore, but I sure remember 1990, cause it was a tough year for me too, and I shot my buck that year right at the buzzer on the last day... So when Stan said that it really made me think... Then, he follows it up with that he shot a buck in that same spot, the next year (1991) on thanksgiving day! Unbelievably, thanksgiving day 1991 is the day I shot my highest scoring buck...


That is kinda crazy and cool

Been thinking of Stan the Man a lot...

I'll never forget him for sure...
In 2014 I visited the mid-west, we both drove 2.5 hours to meet each other at an in between point from where I was staying.
I couldn't believe he would do that, especially as Stan was a very frugal individual. Gas costs a lot of money ya know, he joked!

Stan was a great listener, common-sensed man and had the uncanny ability to rationalize peoples feelings and their rights.

We often talked about his wife, daughter and more so his granddaughter, which was the apple of the grandparents eyes...
Whether it was a road trip to visit his daughter and babysit, or she was to come for the weekend, it was their pure highlight!
He would tell me of their adventures and communications, only the way a grandfather would. Some pretty funny stories as you can imagine from a young child.
He also spoke of other personal matters that I took to heart and will cherish from our long distance relationship.

On my trip to the mid-west Stanley was kind enough too think of me, or maybe it was to tease me, still trying to figure this one out :pray:
This tine came off a buck that his brother in-law had hit with his car, His brother in-law did not hunt so he gave Stanley the head.
I usually carry this with me while hunting to help my quest for a big buck; it will definitely be with me this year!
I think Stanley believed there was some karma that goes with this tine as his brother in-laws name was Eddie... I know I do! :pray:

I was at Harbor Freight today and seen the cheap batteries. Made me think of Stan and made me wonder about how many trail camera's he must have out right now.

I am thankful for people like Stanley. I am also thankful for the places that record the knowledge that these people give so freely. Just for housing this knowledge alone the Beast is a special place. RIP Stanley.

Stan always had a way with words, usually short and to the point but always made sense.

No matter who you are or whenever you jumped in on the beast, It didn't take you long to figure him out. He knew what he was talking about and was very humble about it.

You will be sadly missed..

The board won’t be the same. That’s for sure. I’ve only been on the board for about a year, but Stan was one of those guys that you were drawn to immediately. He was always respectful and helpful to everyone. He certainly was to me even though he had no cause or obligation to be. He patiently answered every question I had no matter how off base, repetitive, or silly they were. His advice on river bottoms helped me bag my biggest buck ever and he had convinced me to switch to slick trick broadheads this year. For as long as I use them, I won’t be able to look at them without thinking about Stan.

RIP Stanley

:shock: I haven’t been on for quite some time and this is the first post I read, to say I’m shocked is an understatement. I only knew Stan from the site but I believe we lost an exceptional role model . Unreal

I think Stan contributed to at least 2/3 of my requests for advice or help on this site. He was a kind soul and is most definitely in a better place now.

Geez I just got the bad news. Rest in peace Stan. Although I didn't know you personally you made great contributions to the hunting beast and will be missed. Rest in peace brother.

Just got the news and just don’t know what to say. Never met Stan but know him well from talking on line. I will miss his input on anything I’m doing or other people are asking about.
Last comment is I saw his obituary video and I hope at the end of my life my family can put together such a loving video of me….. Stanley you will be missed but not forgotten!

Like most of you I didn't know Stan, but he responded to quite a few of my questions on this forum. Always appreciated his input. He will definitely be missed.
