That's a big lost to the hunting community! A lot of history there.

What a shame. I've enjoyed the two books of Larry's I've read plus the one Bryce Towsley wrote about his experiences hunting with Larry and his clan. Simply a man among children when it came to whitetail hunting prowess. I read a post a few years ago in another forum where a fella just simply dropped by Larry's home, knocked on the door and was treated with a couple hour visit with the whitetail Guru. Now that there is a man comfortable in his own skin; inviting a perfect stranger into his home to sit and talk hunting.

Thoughts go to Larry's family.

Here's a Pic of Larry Benoit I came across on the net, thought it would be nice to share it here.
