Fly Fishing, Grouse Hunting and Fine Bird Dogs Spoken Here!

Last Hunt


Ken Geistler lost his battle with cancer yesterday, but not before he took one last deer. Ken was an avid outdoorsman in all seasons and spent his life teaching his son, Kent, to appreciate the out-of-doors as well. Together they hunted and fished every chance they got.

Ken also loved animals – dogs and cats especially. He had one animal or another for all the years I’ve known him and went as far as keeping his garage door partially open so strays could come in and get a bite to eat. Ken and his wife Jane, who preceded him in death, passed on their love for animals to their children, Kent and Jill, who now do the same with their kids – Jill has a small menagerie of her own.

I shot my first buck at Ken’s parent’s cabin on Eight Point Lake in Clair County some forty years ago, and I remember the comradery we shared on that hunt. We drifted apart over the years, but hunts and fishing trips on Eight Point Lake and in the Jordan Valley are good memories.

Ken left a legacy of an appreciation for hunting and fishing and a love for animals. He will be missed.
